Would it hurt to use some evidence? 7

Perry Noble made a characteristic complaint yesterday.

Why is it that most “Christian” music makes me think Jesus wears a dress rather than being THE MOST HIGH GOD? Ahhhhhhh!

While we’re somewhat surprised to learn that Noble listens to Christian music, we’re not surprised that it makes him angry.

Noble’s complaints about all things Christian (excluding his own church) are tiring and telling, but they get especially aggravating when they’re offered so casually and completely devoid of evidence. What music in particular bothers him? What exactly does it take to make him think of Jesus in a dress? How did the image of a cross-dressing Jesus get into Perry Noble’s mind in the first place?

Steven Furtick did a similar thing last week when we complained about evil bloggers without any links to these awful arguments. If what is being written is so obviously flawed, what harm is there in linking to them so that we can all know how not to criticize the uncriticizable?

To pontificate without actually making an argument is just intellectually lazy and arrogant.

    This type of comment makes me think Ace wears a dress.

    Ad Hominem attacks are not necessary Tommy, nor are they Christ like.

    Matt, I think Tommy set a trap that you walked right into. He wasn’t saying that Ace wears a dress, just that he thought Ace wears a dress.

    Why is that more outrageous than PN thinking that Jesus wears a dress?

    Billy,

    Would it hurt to provide some evidence to accompany your accusation?

    PN only likes secular music to be played at New Spring. If it isn’t edgy nobody will listen to it duh.

    This is the criterion: edginess?

    Nobody will listen to it? Tell that to Charles Wesley.

    Duh? What grade are you in?
