I’ve been finishing up some short stories, so I haven’t had time until now to tune into the scintillating developments in the combox or over at BHT.
This will be my very last post on the subject.
At this point, all I can say is that sometimes your critics make your point for you better than you could make it yourself.
Frank Turk famously accused Spencer of being unstable. Now just look at Spencer’s latest meltdown:
Hays and company want me destroyed. They want me off the web. Out of the ministry. They want my family humiliated. They hold me as an enemy of the faith.
They are obsessed. If I were to die in an accident, they would email one another in satisfied wonderment and give God the credit for killing another emergent apostate.
I am a 50 year old ordained minister with my entire reputation a sentence away from being slandered by a seminary student who is young enough to be my son.
That's the example you cited. I am not going to play edit-reedit with Jim. He paid the bills at the BHT for two years and does the tech. His name is on the post. If he was going to reinsert the word after my edit, I wasn't going to waste my time.
So what are we doing? Proving that I'm a liar?
When we talk about pure hatred of me and my blogs, Jus D is exhibit A.
Exactly what are we doing here? Do you need my suicide note to make you all feel better?
Talk about a self-fulfilling prophecy! If you wanted evidence straight from the horse’s mouth to validate Frank’s charge, here it is.
If I didn’t think that Spencer was unstable before now, this would be more than enough to establish the point from his own mouth. The guy has the emotional equilibrium of a five-year old.
BTW, I happen to be 46 years of age. If Spencer is old enough to be my dad, then I don’t whether I should envy or censure his sexual precociousness.
Am I trying to prove he’s a liar? I never accused him of being a liar. He accused me of being a liar—repeatedly.
All I did was respond to his repeated demands for evidence. Now he plays the victim.
Spencer is a pitiful man, wallowing in oceans self-pity. He is clearly incapable of rational self-criticism.
Once again, I never equated “his” usage with c.t.’s. In context, it was all about his duties as moderator.
But in that capacity, who said what is a distinction without a moral difference. He responsible for what other people say on his blog.
Meantime, over at BHT, the Tavernistas are advertising slang terms for masturbation and copulation.
They have also busied themselves rehearsing the number of different sentences which can be composed around the ubiquitous S-word.
You only have to view their antics to see that BHT was a sewer hole just waiting for someone to rip the lid off.
They are self-condemned, having supplied the ammo for their own indictment.
