Niggling about Nagin

First, a word from the dictionary:
intr. v: niggling

1. To be preoccupied with trifles or petty details.
2. To find fault constantly and trivially; carp.

Soon after I posted my thoughts (below this post) about New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin's recent articulation of his misguided theology, I checked out what some other bloggers have to say about it, and I was quite amused by what La Shawn Barber had to say:
I wonder if the wrath of the leftist media, the godless (and Democrats), and non-Bible-reading Christians (including bloggers) will rain down on New Orleans mayor Ray Nagin for that statement the way they do every time Pat Robertson (and Jerry Falwell) opens his mouth?
So, it's only the godless, leftist, Democrat, non-Bible-reading Christian bloggers who criticize Pat, is it? I guess I've put my eternal soul at risk for previous blog posts critical of the good reverend. I can only hope today's post about Nagin will serve as some form of atonement.

Let it be known far and wide across the blogosphere that bloggedy blog -- yes, the allegedly godless, leftist (possibly Democrat, but not registered as such) and nonoccasional-Bible-reading (self-professed) Christian -- takes pleasure in poking fun at idiots of all political stripes. My wit and wrath falls upon the evil and the good.

After reading LaShawn's challenge, I replied in her comments (scroll down to No. 53): "How about leftist, Bible-reading Christians? Can we get in on the act?" To which Richard Hall replied (comment No. 60): "I don’t think LB believes such a thing exists."

Alas, Richard, you're probably right.

Richard also shares his thoughts on this subject. Dean Peters also weighs in.
