The Evil Zwingli meme
I tend not to get involved with these 'meme' things, but after Doug tagged me, well, I really can't resist this one. He explains the rules:
"It seems that Jim West blogs to annoy other people. One of the things that particularly annoys him is memes. For a moment I was tempted to encourage you to send him every meme you've got. But I've had a better idea. This is a meme with two very simple rules.
1) Post something rude about Zwingli. (Outrageous slander especially welcome.)
2) Tag someone who is NOT Jim West"
I think the following will have the desired effect (annoy West), especially because we all know that I'm simply stating the truth:
Were the terminology around at the beginning of the Protestant Reformation, Zwingli would have been called 'emergent'. Were he alive today, I suspect he would be very suspicious of Bultmann, and would shake his head in frustration at the minimalists – and probably make rude jokes about them. Plus, from this picture it is clear that he wore lipstick, and probably eyeliner. In other words, we have a cross-dressing, emergent closet Fundamentalist.
