As I adverted to in a previous post, Broken: 7 “Christian” Rules that Every Christian Ought to Break is about to burst upon the book world, wreaking havoc with non-Lutherans’ blood pressure, religious orientation, and dental hygiene although I’m not certain about that last point.
The Reverend Paul McCain has an excerpt over at Cyberbrethren, and the book looks like it was written by one of the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen—which, by my lights, is a good thing.
What’s more, there’s a video announcing the Broken Break-Out Party, and everyone’s invited. (And by everyone, they mean everyone, not like some Protestants we know who invite only the Elect. So even the Bogomils are invited, as long as they leave the weird stuff at the door.)
So you’ll be able to ask a real-live Lutheran pastor questions. Which I know we all have.
Mine are already prepared:
1. Why did Vienna get a Congress but Versailles got only a Treaty?
2. Do you think Crosby Stills Nash and Young were one name too long? Did Nash really carry his weight?
3. Do you believe the eremitic movement of the fourth century set moral theology off on the wrong path? If so, could you demonstrate the main points of your argument using large dolls?
4. If Paris Hilton had married John Ireland, would she be any better at acting?
5. If you could buy Canada and turn it into a amusement-park ride, would you allow children shorter than 4 feet 6 inches to ride it?
I had more, but my laptop crashed and I lost 15 years’ worth of work. I thought I had been backing stuff up, but it turns out that wasn’t a thumb drive but just a thumb. Which invites questions of its own, admittedly.
