Check out the link to Fred Clark’s Slacktivist over to the right there. Hover over it for a moment and you’ll read that I describe Fred as my favorite blog. Here’s a link to a recent example of him displaying that “wickedly sharp wit.” In this post Fred absolutely excoriates the infuriating, pervasive smugness of a particularly embarrassing expression of “Christianity.” (Yes, in fact I do think the scare quotes are justified here. The Jesus I read in the gospels – the one I’ve come to know and love and try to follow – is the antithesis of the hegemonic pomposity of Colson et al.) Anyway, read this and get hooked on slacktivist too. It’s good for your soul.
Actually, that link is the third in a series Fred wrote on the dreadful Manhattan Declaration.
