Bible and Politics Conference June 2017: Win a Free Registration!

11

March 15, 2017 by James Crossley

The forthcoming Bible and Politics conference at St Mary’s University (2-3 June, 2017) is drawing near. As you will no doubt be aware, it will involve critical analyses of uses of the Bible in politics in a range of geographical and cultural contexts roughly within the timeframe of capitalist modernity. The keynote speaker is Erin Runions. For details about the conference see here

Brace Belden, also kind to stray dogs

As is the custom with the annual St Mary’s conference, there is a competition for one free registration. This year it was decided that the competition ought to be “political” and about higher education (you’ll probably find the Bible too if you look hard enough). So this year it is about who replaces whistleblower Edward Snowden as Rector of Glasgow University after his term comes to an end in April, 2017. There are a range of candidates for the position this year, such as the heroic YPG/IFB revolutionary, antifascist, and anti-ISIS fighter, Brace Belden, and some others. The competition this year is this: in under 100 words, describe who you think deserves to be the next Rector. Leave answers in the comments section here or on The Jesus Blog. The deadline for answers is Friday 24 March and the winner will be registered shortly after. The competition will be judged by the strictest and highest standards of objectivity.

    I should win because i) I am right and ii) I made my case, which is self-evident and indisputable, with 98 words to spare.

    Reblogged this on Zwinglius Redivivus and commented:
    I don’t know what any of this means or who these people are, but I feel like I have to share it because Crossley is blackmailing me…

    I vote for Gnome Chomsky. Too often we garden gnomes have been overlooked for the position of university. Never again!

    Dear Sir,

    I vote for Keith Burnett. His efficiency and professionalism, in operating at the top echelons of academia for decades speaks for itself. And he was always such a good boy!
