‘[M]any systematic theologians . . . have become impatient with waiting for the mountains of historical footnotes to give birth to the mouse of theological insight’- N. T. Wright
OK, it is going to get a bit silly now, but while on the subject of citations, during a recent exchange someone wrote this about good ol' me:
‘Chris Tilling: a pluralistic, relativistic butt muncher feasting on the postmodern swill of Derrida’
- Simon Hardwick
Clever, undoubtadly clever. But also a bit nasty really.
And untrue. Simon you git.
My chosen come back at the time was something like this:
‘Simon Hardwick: jumped up, post-propositionalist, ‘emergent’ loving pansy, critical realist d*ck weed with the philosophical subtlety of a randy walrus at the mating season’
But this left me feeling like I had somehow been out done, which is naturally not ideal.
Any witty insults that you'd recommend as belated response to this Simon chap? Would be appreciated.
