Well, since we are sorta starting up again around here, we figured that we would add a new feature. This one will be called: Zero to Irrelevancy. Primarily, it will be devoted to tracking how many comments it takes the discussion of Michael Otterson’s posts at the On Faith blog to devolve into backbiting, tangents, and shouting (occasionally, it will be applied to other blogs). We doubt that this number will ever reach double digits but we have hope.
On his latest post, Bro. Otterson attempts to explain/defend the church’s position on gay-marriage. It took exactly 2 comments for the thread to become irrelevant (though this is, of course, arguable as the 1st comment was strangely sycophantic).
