Dissent of the day
I don’t know exactly when it was, but at some point along the way I think this site’s critics lapped themselves, so that now the job of the dissenters is not so much to say something new but to level a version of the same basic critiques in more and more innovative ways. And boy howdy, is this, from reader SR, ever innovative. Seriously:
I was just recently exposed to your site. I am shocked at how many idiots there are in SG music. Your concept of invoking argument must enthrall you. Knowing of course that your liberal slant on things will only fire the coals of the conservative christian. I would be curious to know if you yourself ARE a christian. I will admit that a site imposing criticism has been needed for some time in our industry. I do not agree however with your obvious agenda. You sound much like a disgruntled sideliner who has no idea about the true nature of what it is to be in SG. Obviously you know your stuff, half of the time you sound like you swallowed a dictionary. that in itself is an attempt to mask the fact that you are most likely an idiot with an opinion. I do not mean to be harsh simply put I think you are destructive. I am a believer that our industry can change and could be something great. people like you hinder that change by focusing on issues that are best suited to pastors and leaders. You sir, are no leader. You seem to enjoy the conflict and confusion of your writing. And without them knowing it, make fun of the very people who support you. i am always amazed by people like you, the gift to express your ideas with your words while choking on obvious truth. I have been told by some that you are a renegade, a knight to carry the shield of truth. i have yet to find that in your writing. I have found however a coward. Masking yourself with postures of offense while others debate who is wright or wrong. You do it well. I hope for your sake that it does not come back to haunt you. there is nothing wrong with truth, or even pointing out sin and corruption. You do not do that. You seem to thrive on illusion and the power of colorful words. I applaud your ability, I pity your lack of integrity.
“Like you swallowed a dictionary …” Heheh. I like that (and
betimes this analysis may accurately diagnose the prevailing tendencies of my discourse it’s not entirely untrue) . I just might have to use it some time.
