Watched this exchange between Brian McLaren and Scot McKnight and was astounded at how awesomely McLaren is able to give lengthy answers to simple questions that don't really answer the questions. He's above the questions somehow, like Neo from the Matrix. It led me to imagine this exchange in the McLaren household.
Q: Brian, would you like a glass of milk?
McLaren: Why do you ask about the glass of milk, a reductive question, when the larger question is whether cows are meant to provide sustenance for non-cows? I'm very sympathetic to how hard it is for you to step into the bovine paradigm and see from this other perspective. In my writing I try to drive more into the core issues of hunger and thirst, universal issues elevated far above the overly narrow constraints of questions like yours, which you can't even see from the outside because of the confines of the udder-consumer narrative in the dairy/household paradigm. I was a milk-drinker for years, I've come out of that background, so I understand why you'd ask the question.
