If we follow Nephi's advice and liken the Scriptures to ourselves (meaning the Bloggernacle) then this thread is surely heralding the Apocalypse. When you have abish and Jared joining their inspired hands in unison to preach against the worldly corruption that is BCC, well then the end is nigh. That, or this is one of the ugliest examples of petty orthodox versus heterodox the Bloggernacle has seen in awhile. I am not sure which is worse, the BCC crew's snide belittling or abish's unparalleled self-righteousness. It probably comes down to which side of the debate you are on as to which you think is worse. What is that saying about not being able to win a pissing match with a skunk? What happens when there is nothing but skunks fighting?

All this from a post about the futility of defining us vs. them, heterodox vs. orthodox, and the ultimate harmful effect it has regardless of what side you feel you are on. Few things uglier than self righteous vs. self righteous.

Please note that there were angelic visitations in BCC. Steve was tormented with nightmares that he was abusing people calling themselves Abish and Jared. How often does God send a dream to call us to repentence? I'm almost afraid to go to sleep tonight.

Actually, we jumped the gun. we're going back to Steve tonight to apologize. Abish and Jared are a little kooky.

I'd never heard the one about a skunk before.

There I was thinking West Texas lawyers had the market cornered on pithy sayings ...

My hubby is going to love the skunk line--and I'm wondering (as apparently is Stephen) if one of you is a Texan. Sounds like a great Tejas line.

I'll just add a Hugh B. Brown line to the mix: "The church is not so much concerned with whether the thoughts of its members are orthodox or heterodox as it is that they shall have thoughts.”
