I just had a minor epiphany today.
I often struggle to find relevant analogies for the teachers on the extreme side of the Emergent Church movement. This one should do nicely.
The Emergent Church is a true church in the same sense that Hyacinth Bucket (pronounced "bouquet") is a genuine blueblood. It's all a matter of keeping up appearances. And as was the case with Hyacinth, the sham gets exposed these days on a regular basis.
