Now that there are, in addition to the plain old Apologetics Center, personal apologetics centers like the Warren Christian Apologetics Center, theological apologetics centers like the Center for Reformed Apologetics and Theology, as well as city-wide apologetics centers like the Atlanta Apologetics Center and Oxford Center for Apologetics, national apologetics centers like the National Apologetics Training Center and the Africa Center for Apologetics, and even international apologetics centers such as . . . well . . . the International Apologetics Center, I just want to claim a ministry title before someone else thinks of it.
Therefore, I now officially declare myself to be the Center for Intergalactic Apologetics. I, Doug Beaumont, will serve as founder, co-founder, president, web-master, and the first occupant of the Doug Beaumont Chair of Christian Apologetics.
My Board includes:
- Dean Hardy, who gets to be Vice President because (1) he asked first, (2) he is a star celebrity after his role in the Hunger Games (although we still have not found his scene), and (3) he promised to buy us ministry-branded clothing. And in his honor I now commission the Dean Hardy Couch of Christian Philosophy at the Center for Intergalactic Apologetics, and his position includes full rights to creating further furniture-related titles.
- Leroy Lamar is to be the head barista at the Center’s coffee shop (hey, if a website can be a “center,” why can’t it have a “coffee shop” too?). He will occupy the Leroy Lamar Stool of Political Ethics.
- Michael Spicher is hereby named “Meta Vice President” because of his expertise in alien-life [having published on Transformers]. Further, he is a deadly martial artist, and is in the center of the picture and more of him is showing.
- Brandon Vogt, who once said, “I consider Douglas Beaumont a cross between Thomas Aquinas and Thor,” has agreed to serve as Minister of Propaganda.
Anyone else who wishes to be on my board must apply soon, and be one of the people in this picture:
I . . . I mean ”we” (wink!) will begin accepting donations as soon the ministry gets its 501c3 status. In the meantime, you can just send books.
