so cal mockery

So, I've been checking out some blogs and following links around. I found two different blogs reviewing events that I spoke at. They didn't like what I had to say. One was the Mennonite Conference in San Jose, the other was The Feast of St. Patrick's in Ohio. In reading these blogs I discovered something today: When people want to mock someone from Southern California on their blog they simply place the word "like" in between every other word when paraphrasing something that person said... so as to mock the Southern Californian... Wow. How original. I'm cut deep. So deep.

Anonymous, I'm honestly always open to criticism. I'd like to know what you were so displeased with. Mind sharing?

uh, well first let me suggest that your emergent slant on the gospel is nothing new. In fact, isn't the real misnomer, emergent. The way it's bandied about, one may get the impression that the emergent Church (small emergent e, large Church c) is, in all honesty, looking more and more like the Emergent (big E Emergent) church (small church c). That is, all this dialogue surrounding the Emergent phenomena has become common-place thus subtracting (or nullifying) the becoming/unpredictable elements within the Emergent phenomena. There is nothing emerging, this ideology/theological discourse/(in)doctrination, has arrived and the more and more one uses Emergent in front of church, the focus of the discorse becomes the phenomena which is no more, and not the church which has been relegated to lower-case.

And my name is not Anonymous!

Anonymous,
First, You're just bitter because you wish you lived in San Diego, CA like me. Chances are you live where it is really like cold and windy and like dumb... totally. Second, I'm not even sure what you said but you shouldn't say such things about Tony Jones. I'm sure he's a nice guy if you get to know him.
