Of course it was meant in jest!!!!! Please people.... the whole point is
that some folks take themselves too seriously!

There are lots of excellent scholars who have nothing to do with SBL, AAR,
CBA, or any other number of professional organizations....

Geez oh pete- no one reacted in such a way when Jonathan made fun of
"itsagesus"! (which I took as demeaning to Italians and John the Baptist-
but I ddin't say anything....)

Best to all, and have a happy weekend! :-)
