This is the twenty-third installment in The Sounds of Fundamentalism series. This is a series that I would like readers to help me with. If you know of a video clip that shows the crazy, cantankerous, or contradictory side of Evangelical Christianity, please send me an email with the name or link to the video. Please do not leave suggestions in the comment section. Let’s have some fun!
Today’s Sound of Fundamentalism is a clip from a sermon preached by Fundamentalist Mark Driscoll, pastor of the now defunct Mars Hill church in Seattle, Washington. Driscoll’s ugly, abusive behavior led to the implosion of Mars Hill — a church that had 10,000 attendees. Driscoll is now pastoring a new church — The Trinity Church — in Phoenix, Arizona.
One of the good things Mark Driscoll did was denounce Joel Osteen as a money grabbing charlatan.
Since his own ministry fell apart he has now changed his mind and said sorry to Joel thus showing no integrity. He will say anything for fame and is trying to re establish himself.
When will people learn and stop giving money to these frauds?! When someone on tv says give money to God while they live in a mansion with a private jet getting rich off the money you are donating can’t you see something is fucking wrong!!
Just to let you know–Driscoll is currently running a bible study every Sunday morning at 9:30 a.m. That said, I’m local to his new outfit and I am a pit bull on the pant leg of opportunity. I’m out there every Sunday at 9 am to let the arriving people know what kind of a winner Driscoll is. Tomorrow’s signs are going to say “It’s all about Jesus (crossed out) MARK” and “Mark wants your money and your time,” along with a link to a website http://www.despicableMarkDriscoll.com.
Good for you, Deana ! Arizona is a beautiful place, and doesn’t need a mean spirited crackpot like that Driscoll. I was reading somewhere that he’d have nasty characters like Tedd Tripp the child-bearing advocate, preaching at Mars Hill. I’d like to send them on a one way trip to Mars ! Without a biodome, preferably. Keep up the good work, lol.
