Wouldn’t it be nice if there were one normative process theology – at least if it were mine! If someone else’s theology took on that role, I wouldn’t be so happy about it.

The above paragraph is intended to indicate the problem of claiming normativity for any one position on virtually any topic. People involved in the discussion might be pleased if their views were adopted as “normative.” But those whose views were rejected would not, and many of them would simply reject the idea that beliefs they did not share had any claim to authority.
