After this I quit the whole question of orthodoxy

OK, one more swipe at orthodoxy and then I call it quits.  Martin Marty wrote a column on Eugen Rosenstock-Huessy (I guess the White House got mixed up with plagiarizing him in some way that I missed) and offered this excerpt from his writings:

“Anybody in our midst who boasts that he is a liberal or a conservative obviously cannot count to three – Nobody can be anything but a liberal conservative or a progressive reactionary.”  To this Marty added that “we might say that anyone who claims to be orthodox or heretical cannot count to three.  Nobody can express anything except heretical orthodoxy or orthodox heresy.”  I like that!
