As you may recall, my first badge of honor was when the IRD started following me on twitter, which was after Mark Driscoll and Rick Warren did the same. I was amused at the IRD’s clear interest in my star-wars blog posts.
Then, today, I receive my second badge of honor.
Oh yeah, that’s right: the big guy himself, the main agent in charge of UMC destabilization…Mark Tooley.
Hilarious. Now, I’ve met Mr. Tooley twice: once when he covered an event at my alma mater for the IRD, and once in line for coffee at General Conference. I didn’t get the ominous feeling from him like Luke Skywalker by the Dagobah cave or Harry Potter next to a dementor. Maybe it’s all hype. Or, from the look at his twitter feed, all self-aggrandizement.
Ah well. I’ll claim it as a badge of honor anyway, and keep doing what I’m doing, because apparently I’m attracting the attention of all the wrong people. Rock on.
