One of my seminary professors Bryan Stone has a great parody of “Twas the Night Before Christmas” up.
Here’s a sample:
Twas a Postmodern Christmas, when all through the regime
Not a concept was stirring, not even a meme.
Essentialist dogmas were nurtured with care,
And imperialist ambitions still hung in the air
The children were nestled all snug in their beds,
While grand narratives of progress danced in their heads.
And my favorite part:
“Now Heidegger, Nietzsche! Now, Levinas and Lyotard!
On Derrida, Foucault! On Butler and Baudrillard!
To each modern foundation, to each stucturalist wall!
Now deconstruct! Deconstruct! Deconstruct all!”
For my geeky theology friends, it’s Christmas joy! Read the rest here.
