Yes, according to a new website titled “Is Mark Driscoll a bully?”. Mark Driscoll is the senior pastor of Mars Hill church in Seatlle, and the author of the website is clearly not a fan. The site defines the word “Driscoll”:
1. (verb) To employ a self-martyring, pseudo-theological chauvinistic rage to denigrate intelligent women, homosexuals, worship leaders who wear a pink shirts, congregants who disagree with you, a pastor who fails to talk about his wife’s vagina from the pulpit, and any non-Christian who thinks you are a crazy bigot.
The site also includes some pretty crazy examples of things Mark Driscoll has said. My favorite:
One night, as we approached the birth of our first child, … I had a dream in which I saw … in painful detail Grace sinning sexually during a senior trip she took after high school…. I asked her if it was true, fearing the answer. Yes, she confessed, it was. Grace started weeping and trying to apologize for lying to me, but I honestly don’t remember the details of the conversation, as I was shell-shocked. Had I known about this sin, I would not have married her.
So God decided to speak to Mark in a dream about his wife’s sinful past. Hahaha…. love it. And people say God doesn’t have a sense of humor. Kudos God. You deserve a tip of the cap on that one.
Also, consider this an open thread. If you’ve seen anything on the internet you want me to talk about, please feel free to put it in the comments.
