The Joy of Bad Reviews
Francis Bacon once asserted, "A man is best known not so much by the friends he keeps as by the enemies he accumulates." I've always joked that if Bacon were right, the best commendations I have ever received were the bad reviews I've gotten from the ACLU's Update, the Village Voice, or Planned Parenthood's Insider. Well, now I've garnered even better credentials than those! I've been attacked and ridiculed by a loose network of racist and anti-semitic "Christian" websites and blogs! I couldn't be more pleased--unless of course, I could somehow drum up a fatwah for our educational and discipling work in Iraq which really would be the crowning kudo for a career spent in accumulating just the right sort of enemies!
