"And let me be clear, Bradley’s rejection and critique of black theology is not the issue. I am not a proponent of black theology per se and I am not bothered that Bradley isn’t either. My problem is Bradley, like Thabiti Anyabwile, refuses to acknowledge the extent to which Christianity is so culturally entangled and orientated that speaking of a pure heritage of Orthodoxy or biblical faith is nearly impossible. Moreover, certain scholars in classical and contemporary times have noted that actually there are “Christianties” not one pure brand of “Christianity.”

Amen to that.

I find it ironic, that Dr. Bradley critiques Liberation Theologians use of Marxist analysis, while he clings to a notion of "Orthodox" Christianity which is saturated in the philosophies of Homosexual Greek and Roman Pagans (Plato and Seneca). And to stretch the irony further, he gives interviews with Christian stations who's "Orthodoxy" is tightly bound in US nationalism.

Whatever disputes I may have with Black Liberation Theology, the way his book is being embraced by Christians who are right-wing nationalists, makes his critique suspect.

In the second instance, the use of force was unjust and inappropriate, but not sufficient to cause significant injury. The words used were hateful and stupid, but alone would not seem sufficiently shocking to mobilize the masses seeking justice.

I felt the same way about Bradley's book. He completely begged the question when he said that Cone abandoned orthodoxy. However, "orthodoxy" is precisely what Cone is calling to task.

Btw, I think I'm going to come check out your church. I'm just moved to Atlanta and am looking for a place to attend.

Good blog.

Aaron...you're exactly right. "Orthodoxy" or the theology of evangelical establishment is definitely a target of Cone's theological social critique.

Thanks for sharing. If you decide to visit our church, please let me know so we can connect.

Blessings.
