The Emergent Too Doctrinal?

Well, now it seems like everywhere I turn, someone is stating that Emergent is screwing up the church. Either we’re too left, too right, too doctrinal or not doctrinal enough; we commodified and sold-out the wonderfully organic emerging church movement, or we are slippery because we won’t define ourselves. I could go on, but suffice it to say that Brian’s prophecy turned out to be spot-on.
Source, emphasis mine.

Boy I can't tell you how hard I laughed when I read that. I'm not trying to be mean, it's just I've never heard ANYONE EVER describe the Emergent movement as doctrinal. I nearly choked on my diet Pepsi. Please feel free to resume your day now.
