I have received word that one of the comments under my care has been held "in moderation" for over 1 week. In this time I have had no assurance that my comment "in moderation" has been properly cared for, nor has this comment been allowed (under the terms of the Silicone Valley Convention) to communicate with other comments in your Vision 2019 "blog".
This comment was sent in good faith on March 12, 2009. The comment itself was unarmed, and was a member in good standing of the Anglican Church of Canada. It was baptized and confirmed in the Diocese of Edmonton, and had served faithfully on two local internet parish councils. While I understand that some care needs to be taken in assigning server space, I anticipate that the comment under consideration has felt excluded from the conversation, and will most likely need extensive pastoral counseling when and if it is ever released back into cyberspace.
I am therefore writing what is known in the business as a "Strongly Worded Letter" to the Queen, and expect that you will take the appropriate action. If by chance you have permanently deleted my comment, or have somehow found it offensive, let me offer the following by way of replacement:
The Politics of Jesus Revisited (1997) John Howard Yoder
I suspect that there are a number of people for whom the appearance of any opposition to SSB on biblical or theological grounds needs to be reduced to a charge of "fundamentalism/literalism", but that is simply not the case. There is simply a failure to admit that one can hold such a view in a post-critical age.
Indeed, I have found that this episode has caused me such personal anguish that I must break my Lenten fast, and seek solace with a 1998 Pinot Noir.
Yours truly, etc
