Compliment? or Not?

Tony Jones said
Much love for megachurch pastors: [Doug Pagitt and I] talk affectionately about guys like Bill Hybels and Rick Warren because we’re now going through a lot of the criticism that they went through in the ‘80s when they were doing church in a high school gymnasium and taking the word ‘Baptist’ off their name. Had there been no ‘seeker movement,’ I think there would be no ‘emergent movement.’”

I guess that's cool, or is he saying we are already irrelevant? Maybe the emergent movement is just a venue. It's time for the "Old Pastor Guys Rule" movement.
