Round One – West Sectionals 2 v. 15

It’s preposterous statement galore here at the 2009 Preposterous Statement Tournament (not to be confused with the Common Man Dan Cole’s Preposterous Statement Tournament). You can follow the tournament by using the 20 Times Around the Block Preposterous Statement bracket. Make your pick for a winner! A complete list of the statements can be found here.

Which statement is more preposterous?

2. I believe that Mr. Spencer has accurately described the disease, but has badly missed on the remedy. The truth is – There is no remedy. We are at the end. Period. –Stuart Woods commenting on The Coming Evangelical Collapse at Pyromaniacs.

15. The Shack contains terribly wrong concepts about God. Plain and simple. If you think it doesn’t, then you’re well on your way to accepting the image of the Christa on the cross In a few years, you’ll be hanging her up in your church.–Mary Kassian

Nothing spells preposterous like good ole fashion religious paranoia. Michael Spencer wrote a much discussed article titled The Coming Evangelical Collapse that elicited a comment from Stuart Woods basically stating there is no hope. We are at the end! The apocalypse is here! Another sign of evangelicalism’s collapse reading William P. Young’s book The Shack which metaphorically depicts God as a black woman (rather than an old white man with a beard). According to anti-feminist writer Mary Kassian, if this doesn’t bother you, you will have this image hanging in your church in a few years.
