This Isn't Going Where You Think It Is

Voila_Capture113 I think Douglas Wison is one of the best writers out there right now, in both style and content. He is widely read, and applies his rapier wit and massive intellect to a broad array of topics biblical, ecclesiastical, political, and cultural.

One of the things I really enjoy about him is just when I think I know where he is going along a certain line of thought, he's gone somewhere else entirely, done so brilliantly, and taught me something I wouldn't have learned had he gone where I thought he was going!

Case in point via his latest post over at Blog and Mablog today:

So is this why our country is coming apart in our hands? Is this why popular entertainment is so corrupt? Is this why our justices despise the gift of life? Is this why our laws cannot make out the reason God gave us boys and girls? Is this why Congress does not understand the concept of red ink?...

Is this why our fathers devise various means to run out on their families? Is this why wives are terminally disrespectful to them, doing what they can to chase them out early? Is this why our children are so sullen and unhappy?...

Is this why our seminaries do their level best to train sexless capons for future ministry? Is this why pulpits are treated as bunkers to hide in, instead of cockpits to fight from? Is this why we call theologians conservative if they condescend to believe most of the Bible?...

All hope is lost? Good....

Intrigued? Even just a little? Please, read on, you'll be glad you did.
