AKMA on Wright

AKMA blogs on that Wright letter to the Guardian which I blogged yesterday:

Don't Do It!

AKMA is irritated by Wright's casual use of the term "postmodern" and challenges:
Bishop Tom, if you’re so concerned with “what the texts actually say,” please cite for me one single scholar of postmodernity who invokes “a synthesis of widely disparate traditions in support of that contemporary western phenomenon, ‘the religious quest’.” I’ll even try not to quibble over who counts as a “scholar,” trusting that if you care enough to think about what you said, you will care enough not to scrounge up some shabby lackwit who justifies theoretical fustian by labelling it “postmodern.”
