Pyromaniacs: The Art of Smug

John on September 3, 2007 at 9:31 pm

I guess the guys over at Pyromaniacs feel they’re entitled to be smug and belligerent. After all, John MacArthur is a man so smug that even people who agree with him on 95% of his positions are fed up with him. That’s a hard act to follow.

Here’s how I look at it. If MacArthur has raised smugness to an art, the Pyro guys are like cheap Taiwanese knock-off-smug, i.e. not quality but cheap and plentiful. Have a look at these and you’ll see what I mean.

Other bloggers are just tired of beating their heads against a wall. I probably would be too if I bothered to read their site more than once a semester.

Anyway, I’m not above a little return smugness. Here’s my take on the Pyro guys in the form of motivational posters parodying their beliefs. Not accurate? Sorry boys, it’s a little late to complain about that.

They’ll pretend to ignore this post like they have all the others I’ve written about them. One thing I’ve learned about the reformed and that’s that they won’t bother arguing if they can get away with crowd pleasing demagoguery or a quick dis. They’ve been that way since Calvin’s day actually.

Plus ca’ change…

Update: I stole this one from Matt Johnson at The Boar’s Head Tavern:
