My Blogging Rules

posted by Tony Jones

I imagine that I’ve got a smattering of new readers now that I’ve moved to Bnet, so let me reiterate my blogging rules, which I first iterated at theoblogy.blogspot.com and then at tonyj.net.

1) I do not edit my posts, ex post facto, but allow my mistakes, misjudgments, and misstatements to stand as a record of my idiocy.

2) I do not get involved in the comment section.  I read all the comments, but I don’t respond; I let the post do the talking.

3) I occasionally break rules 1 and 2.

I think it’s really funny that there’s a banner ad that comes up on your blog right now for a short film called “Tony” produced by The Responsibility Project, produced by George Clooney and starring Tate Donovan (as Tony, presumably), who kind of even looks like you. Sort of. It just makes me smile.

sounds like God to me, except that he would blame mistakes on corrupt mss.

I like your rules. Though guidelines might be more appropriate.

Hi Tony,
What are rules?
Are they related to “original intent” meaning of words, or to my definition of what the author meant… originally?
I hope the humor comes through.

Dear Readers, After a year with Beliefnet, I've decided to move to my own domain for my blogging.  It's been a fine year -- some things worked, other things didn't.  But in the end, I'll be a better blogger on my own.  My thanks to the Bnet editorial staff; they've been very supportive. Ple

Ending Christian Euphemisms: "Fundamentalist"
I've taken some heat in the comment section for using yesterday's post on "unbiblical" and a "higher view of scripture" as a thin foil for my own disregard of biblical standards. To the contrary, I was pointing to the use of the word unbiblical as a stand-in for a particularly thin hermeneutic. Ther
