Punks and Dandies


In ‘Anglomania’, an intriguing exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the response of Dandies to eighteenth century society as heralds of modernity was compared to the response of Punks to twentieth century society as heralds of postmodernity. We googled ‘church’ and ‘Minneapolis’ and found solomonsporch.com (or org) a church curiously free from the usual stipulations placed on Christianity by modernity which don’t really relate to the essence of Jesus-ness. Like ‘proof’ and ‘absolute truth’ and ‘right’ and ‘wrong’. Personally, I really enjoy a more post-modern, possibility-drenched approach to Christianity.
