Yet Another Quotable Quote

"I want to affirm the fundamentals of the faith and stand in the tradition of historic orthodoxy and the Rule of Faith. But I'd rather be stripped naked, tarred, feathered, and paraded around Tenessee Temple University while wearing a sign saying "I am Bill Clinton's love child, so make me governor of Tenessee" before I became a Fundamentalist."

-Mike Bird, speaking on Fundamentalism - and based on the context, the kind I grew up in :-)

p.s. The CT article he was referencing links to Baylor's blog. Schmoozing...the real reason he went to TEDS :-)

Mihelis -- when I saw that quote I was crying with laughter. If you to chuckle, you ought to check out the comments at the bottom of Collin's post. Some of them are hilarious. As for me coming to TEDS for the shmoozing . . . I thought that went without saying!

Maybe I'm missing something here, but did you forget link to that quote, Nate? Just curious.

Hey Logan, Baylor's got one up on you on your journey to the evangelical apex: He's been noticed and linked to in a CT article. You'd better kick it into overdrive b/c you're seriously laggin' behind...

sorry to disappoint...but
if you had seen how hard he had to beg that guy to cite his blog, you might reconsider your sentiment.

his 15 minutes are up. i'm seeking a city with lasting foundations.

Jeremy,
Sorry; I've cited Bird's blog so many times that I've just gotten lazy about it now. I forget sometimes, and assume most people are already checking his blog anyway :-)
