Why Fred Clark is a Genius, example 1

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.

slacktivist: The fatuous foolishness of the Manhattan Declaration.

Actually, that link is the third in a series Fred wrote on the dreadful Manhattan Declaration.
