The "Rodney King School of Theology"
The school of thought which espouses the "Can't we all just get along?" brand of theology. Coined by Christian signer turned "theo-blogian" Steve Camp during a blog-rant-reply session here.
This is the paragraph that birthed this profound piece of theologizing:
"Let's not reduce though this discussion to the Rodney King School of Theology - 'can't we all just get along?' I find this common on Christian blogs. Nice is considered more important than truth (which I am not suggesting that you or candleman affirm). There is nothing wrong with fiery debate over key issues facing us. Where are the Christian Limbaugh's and Hannity's? That in part is what the vision for this blog is--a place where vigorous debate can occur without the touchy feely sentimentality associated with many Christian blogs."
Hey, how about the LAPD School of Theology? Espousing the "beat-the-crap-out-of-you-and-stay-the-hell-up" brand of theology? Truth is, if "the man" gots a gun, if his beatdown is hard 'nuff, I'd "stay-the-hell-up" too. Hmmmmm.
