4 line biographical poems about theologians, yes really!

My picks from Myers and Fabricus' brilliant Theological Graffiti:

Hans Frei
Replied with a sigh
To the liberal lot:
“You’ve lost the plot.”

Wayne Grudem
Had a stratagem
To define the role of women; but neglected to mention
Whether men, too, are allowed in the kitchen.

“Jürgen Moltmann,
Can
The world,” we ask, “live without hope?”
“Nope.”

Wolfhart Pannenberg,
Who studied in Heidelberg,
Is quite a stickler
For all things empirical, scientific, geschichtliche.

Totall genius, a number of other pearlers in there too, but i'll let you find them yourself.
