Why even liberals try not to hire prophets.

Clyde Grubbs is thinking about why religious liberals, who proclaim the "prophethood of all believers," don't typically call prophets to be parish ministers. Instead, he writes, "it is among the unchosen laity that we witness prophecy in our midst" — in the awkward, impolitic people who ask the right sharp question at what feels to so many of us like the inopportune time. (Obviously, he too is thinking about Cindy Sheehan.)
