SOLOMON GIVEN BOOT FROM HIP CHURCH CONFERENCE

(AP) -- A noted writer has been "disinvited" from a cutting-edge church conference, say conference organizers, after a calmly-delivered, but highly controversial, speech.

"He just doesn't know how to put things," one disgruntled listener said. "It's like 'Oh, I've got truth and here you go, here's what you need to know'," he said, adding that Solomon ruffled feathers right off the bat.

"He said wisdom is what matters, more than anything else. We were all like, 'What about authenticity?' But he said an authentic fool is still a fool. He said that. He used the word 'fool' a lot. I was really disappointed," another added. "It was offensive."

But that wasn't the worst, according to others.

"He used the term 'evildoers'. That's just not right to say some people are evildoers. It's so black-and-white, and lacked nuance. He said it several times, too. That may fly in America, but what about the rest of the world? This guy just doesn't understand other cultures and contexts like we do," said one church-planter in a Starbucks cap.

Read the rest here. (Only one man I know could write this - always worth reading. Thanks for another great post, Brant.)
