File under: Obvious

John Dehlin, the Bloggernacle's emissary (or is that enmityssary?) for the Disaffected Mormon Underground (DAMU) has been kicked off the Moarch. Now there is a surprise.

Seriously, people, the only question is, "Why did the Moarchistocracy ever link Dehlin in the first place?" Getting tossed was only a matter of time. Duh.

But, hey, John's gotta milk it for all its worth. There will be dozens of podcasts where he interviews himself about how he feels and how it has affected his daily life as he opines ad nauseum about how all he is trying to do is spread love, understanding and warm pink fuzzy hugs between groups of people with opposing views and more than their fair share of vehement, irrational hatred.

John, stop whinging and be grateful for the link-throughs you got from them while you were there. For a guy who wants to promote love, peace and understanding, you sure are doing all you can to sew ill will against the Mormon Archipelago guys, whom you explicitly name to the best of your ability, so all your mates will hate them. Ah, the sweet, sweet savour of hypocrisy.

Oh, and DKL, nothing like riding on someone else's coat tails to promote yourself. YUCK! BTW, I’ll be releasing LDSDefect 2.0 some time soon, so keep an Egyptian Eye of Horus out for an even more self-referential and self-congratulatory version wherein I spend 2.0 time the amount of time pretending to be a rebel fighting for the little guy when it really is all about me sticking it to the Moarch. Yeah, did I mention I rock? Yeah, hard. Just ask SKL. Who is one hot momma.

I really loved the name and shame game. Classy.

This one was nice too:

"Aren’t they just jealous that your blog is bigger than all of their original blogs?"

And this:

"Should we boycott ldsblogs.org?"

What children we all are.

No, just some people are children. We here at Team SN are all responsable, hard working, mature adults. Yeah. And if you don't agree with that, we will throw a big tantrum and scream and yell and badmouth you to all our friends. Wah!

Dehlin is off the hardliner's approved list? What took so long? That crowd sets themselves above the atonement and would ex most of the church if they could. Evangelicals have good reason to bash us with folks like that as the face of the church.

Steve EM, if only we could have you lead the Church and the Moarch, then you could lead us all into the paths of truth and righteousness.

All hail the snark. I definitely need the constant reminder to not take myself (or others) too seriously.

Touche again and again.

Steve EM said... @ August 28, 2006 at 11:53 AM

I acknowledge they'd be just as foolish to follow my poor example as they would be to follow hardliners. All I'm saying is we have only one King, and it isn't any one them.

You mean I shouldn't have been paying my tithing directly to Geoff these past 5 months?!

I feel so ... betrayed.

Seth, you can send your tithing to me from now on. And don't you forget that generous Fast Offering either!

Combined with the "vote for your favorite commenter" at T&S, it does seem as though the bloggernacle is back to junior high together. Shunning, open popularity contests, and jealousy.

The most inadvertantly funny part of that soap opera was when Rusty Clifton compared himself and the rest of the MoArch guys to Oprah.
Doood! Have you no shame!?!?

Rusty said... @ August 28, 2006 at 6:04 PM

Yeah, the funniest part of this post was when that anonymous commenter didn't understand Rusty's Oprah comparison. That was hilarious.

Rusty, I suggest you get back to nine moons and start minding what's left of the store. Between your Oprah whine and Seth R.'s Languatron imitation, your blog is in total meltdown. If you didn't have that big chip on your shoulder, I'd suspect you of putting out some snark bait.

I liked the graphic with the shield.

Has MA dropped that Iron Rod porn site yet?

You know, the thing is,

I've never even seen an actual Languatron post.

Any links anyone?
