Newsflash: Armstrong Inquisition Gets the Goods on Steve Hays

The latest inquistitorial edict from the Holy Office of Dave Armstrong for the Faith has just issued its findings relative to the following anti-Catholic apologists:

Steve Hays
James White
Frank "Centurion" Turk
James Swan
Phil Johnson

It's full of love, of course, because, as we all know Dave Armstrong is the model qua model for Christian love and charity. The charge: "They write too much." Yes, Dave is on and on today about the length of blog entries.

Ironically, the first sentence reads:
Will this silliness ever end?

So, now I call upon my brother, Steve Hays, to defend himself before the Inquisition. What say you to these most grievous charges of heresy? Art thou a heretick most foul, or will thou repent of thy sins and return to Holy Mother Church?

File under: Inconsequential silliness


  1. I've had to change my name and go into hiding lest Opus Dei death-squads take me back to their torture chambers in the subbasement of the Vatican Library.

  2. Steve,

    According to DA's calculations, just 2 of your recent posts add up to a grand total of 25,940 words. Personally, I didn't even know there were that many words available for use. Perhaps you just repeated several of them many times, I don't know. I am a little perplexed though why Dave would be spending his time counting the number of words in your blog entries. I'm sure he has better things to do. Well, maybe not...

  3. Hey,

    My RSS Reader is showing McRyanMac as the author of all the blog entries. What happened?

  4. What happens in RSS, stays in RSS.

  5. It maybe because Ryan McReynolds is technically the site owner of T-blog. He's the one who originally started T-blog, and he remains the super administrator.

  6. You know, I've been thinking about this some more. The real factor here is the WORD to SUBSTANCE ratio. Steve's is, let's say, 1:1. Dave's is around 1:0.00001. Unless you include the links he cites as proof of his assertions. That actually knocks his ratio down a few hundreths of a point. So, I think the Armstrong Inquisition should examine Armstrong himself. Well, all this math is tiring me out...

  7. Steve,

    How about a little "history of T-Blog"? I'd like to know how it all started, how it developed into the juggernaut of apologetics it is today, and where you see it going into the future...



  8. Steve,

    Isn't "McRyanMac" the supercomputer that runs this whole show? You know, the artificial intelligence that spawned the T-bloggers?

    Just wondering...

  9. Man, Dave used 1600 words to say that Steve writes more than he does. (On the other hand, I just used 14 to say the same thing.)

    Of course, there's a difference between DA using lots of words to say nothing and someone else using lots of words to convey content. Not that anti-Calvinists can grasp this concept.

  10. The irony...

    I sometimes make it thru Steve's posts (and then I buy myself a well-deserved milkshake). I don't know if I've made it thru a whole DA post yet though. I dunno how you guys do it.
