Speaking at The Nines

Should a guy like me use my blog to pimp myself to speak at The Nines, a fairly conservative, evangelical event, already stacked with White Guys, many of whom have Facial Hair?

Probably not. Instead, I think we should all go on there and vote for Rachel Held Evans, Eliacin Rosario-Cruz, and others who break the mold.

Well, that’s what I’ve done, but I won’t hold it against you if your clicker clicks my button, too.

    I clicked on you, Tony. And all those other mold-breakers you mentioned. I’d especially encourage folks to click on Kathy Escobar, Rich McCullen, Anthony Smith, etc.

      Steve, I voted for each of them, too.

        Yep. I voted for ’em too. And you got my vote Tony!

    well I was planning on voting for Joel Osteen, but I guess you convinced me other wise. It was a tough decision!

    Don’t forget to vote for Julie as well! (Julie Clawson – currently #102)

      Already did!

    Well spoken, Tony… from a white guy with facial hair. :)

    I am just shooting for the “big dumb white guy with facial hair” position to open up for me to speak. I was nominated, but don’t care if I speak, I just wanted to beat out a few people, (James White and Todd Friel) so I could have bragging rights later. = )

    While I fully admit to knowing, well, nothing about the Nines…

    Scrolling through the list I see a couple other worthy names in addition to those already mentioned here, people who’d probably mess with the heads of the average attendee: Richard Twiss, Kimberly Knight and Jennifer Knapp.
    And, it should go without saying, the Tickle!

    How come Mr. Silva hasn’t been nominated? Seems like the neighbourly thing to do 😉
