Scorn for the Scornful

I’ve managed to avoid the Reindeer Games that is the evangelical world for the better part of a decade. Yay! But in the process I tend to miss good things that some of the occupants of the better ghettos say. It’s perhaps more of a loss than I think it is when someone asks me if I read what such-and-such Gospel Celebrity from the Gospel Corporation said in his thoughtful circumlocution on a hot cultural trend, and I say “no, I don’t have much call to read such-and-such, nor much of anything from the thoughtful circumlocutors over there at the Gospel Corporation.” I probably learn more from the summaries I get from others anyways, and don’t have to wade through inane cliches and movie references.

But not all self-identified evangelicals are company men, it turns out.

This blog post from 2006 does exactly what its author intends. It is not intended to replace weightier articulations of the doctrine in question: several of his interlocutors do not understand that, as may be seen in the comments that follow.
