Well said.


I read Florida's article, which outlined his ideas on the "Creative Class" when it was published in The Washington Monthly (http://www.washingtonmonthly.com/features/2001/0205.florida.html). It was an excellent article. But my own hometown of Louisville, KY is listed as one of the "bottom 10 cities" (poor creative class ranking) and it wouldn't be a surprise if part of that was because of the Al Mohr and the SBTS's influence on Louisville, holding it back.

I left Louisville 6 years ago and have no desire to return. I moved to Maryland precisely because, despite it's deeply conservative Roman Catholic roots, it tends to embrace and respect diversity.


Bravo Greg. The body of Christ has got to realize that discipleship only comes through fellowship (I know that's church talk, please forgive).

Case in point...

I'm a former Youth Pastor of 13 years. I can't tell you how much of Youth Ministry is SCARE TATIC EVANGELISM. That is so wrong. Reltationship is the catalist to influence. Jesus was trashed because he ate with sinners, we're too afraid to be seen at Wal-mart around them.


If Jesus came to OKC, I for one would think he would be hanging out with the dope smokers, the techno dancers & the "Prince of Darkness"...the modern day version of the despised "tax colletors". Probably wouldn't be able to find him wherever it is the religiously conservative are gathering to plot their bible-thumpin' evangelism.
