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.

I tag Nick Norelli

The church is full of men in dresses and jewels. Just look at Bishy Tommy Wrong.

Not that I'm comparing the Great Zwingli with the bish of Durham.

How's this?

Zwingli was uglier, than the ugliest Hound
And Lord knows, his theology was far from Sound.

He was a heretic and a schismatic.
Who should have been shot with an automatic.

Unfortunately, back then,
there were none to be found.

Signed, appropriately and annoyingly,

Steph, Wright has less Wrong in his little finger, than Zwingli has Wright in his body!

Thanks Nick!! Keep the persecution up!

Anon, thanks for the laugh - I will have to draw West's attention to your comment, of course!
