"Pastor Dan" featured in the New York Times

Saturday, August 11, 2007

Although I disagree with virtually everything "Pastor Dan" Schultz says, he is one of the more intelligent liberal religion bloggers on the net today. The UCC minister is featured today in a good story in the New York Times. However, there is one ironic part of the article that caught my attention:
"If Conservative Christians are looking for salvation," Mr. Schultz wrote in one characteristic post, "they ought to start looking to save themselves from themselves. They have much to repent for, like the rest of us. But unlike the rest of us, they have a unique level of judgmentalism and separation to get out of their system."
I always get a kick out of watching someone judgmentally criticize someone else who is being judgmental.

Circular arguments aside, he is one of the few UCC ministers who drinks the punch yet seems to be able to articulate his point of view without reading off the script or recycling press releases. I read his blog regularly and feel challenged by many of his posts even when I disagree with them.

He is also one of the few UCC bloggers I'd ever entertain debating online.

Pastor Dan is 'out there' but he is entertaining.
