Mark Driscoll Joins Westboro Baptist Church
We’ve learned a few things about Mark Driscoll over the last couple of years: he’s a bully; a fake tough-guy; a demon-worshiper; incredibly non-discerning; a terrible scholar, and a delusional pervert.
Now it seems that he is adopting the theology of Westboro Baptist Church.
In a recent sermon ‘pastor’ Mark vehemently declared
“Some of you, God hates you. Some of you, God is sick of you. God is frustrated with you. God is wearied by you. God has suffered long enough with you. He doesn’t think you’re cute. He doesn’t think it’s funny. He doesn’t think your excuse is “meritous” [the word he’s looking for here is “meritorious”]. He doesn’t care if you compare yourself to someone worse than you, He hates them too. God hates, right now, personally, objectively hates some of you.”
“God hates, right now, personally, objectively hates some of you”…
There was a video clip of Driscoll spewing the above sewage, but after being posted to the internet and being discussed on sites like The American Jesus or Jesus Needs New PR even Driscoll had the good sense to take the clip off of the Net.
I have neither the time nor the inclination to go into a detailed answer to Driscoll’s myopic understanding of a small mean god whom he has shrunken down to his own angry and vindictive human ideals and ideas. To engage with a pitiful, mean, and punitive version of an angry sky-king that resembles nothing of the Jesus that he apparently follows.
I will merely say this:
When your ‘theology’ closely resembles the bigoted, ridiculous, inbred hatred that is the Westboro Baptist Cult: you have officially lost the plot.
This is not the “Good News” of the gospel. This is the bad news of a small, angry, petty man.
