    "If we added up all the dire predictions that the fundamentalists have made down through the years, what about them didn’t happen? Fundamentalists are the cassandras of American cultural life. Back when everything seemed so stable in its Eisenhowerishness, the fundamentalist would say that everything was soon to be headed for hell in a handbasket. Ho, ho, ho was the cogent reply. Now here we are bouncing along in the handbasket, with some of the more gifted of our number getting grants from the National Endowment for the Humanities to puke over the side of the handbasket as we bounce along. “This small performance is one I like to call ‘Seasickness Against the Absolute.’ Thank you, thank you!” And a fundamentalist in the corner says, “You know, I don’t see how you can call that art.” Everybody, all together now, ho, ho, ho!" - Douglas Wilson

    What does this mean? Is it just a joke or is it mocking?

    It means the Fundamentalists were right, to a point. The culture they decried in the 60's ended up ruining the thin Christian veneer that covered North American society. Read the full article or listen to the link provided in the original post. Wilson is spot on.

    Yours in the Lord,

    I got the completely wrong idea. I thought it was mocking fundamentalists. I find his writing style hard to understand for some reason
