I have to say, I am disappointed in Mark Driscoll…
…that he would make a comment that would light up the internet with conversation more colorful than a gay pride parade, while I was out of town, and unable to blog about it.
But it’s all good. I’ve taken a lot of time to reflect on the topic. If you are unaware of all the kerfluffle, Pastor Mark Driscoll of Mars Hill Church, Seattle, posted this on Facebook:
“So, what story do you have about the most effeminate anatomically male worship leader you’ve ever personally witnessed?”
And all hell broke loose. People ganged up on Mark, demanding apologies, calling him a bully. And somewhere, Rob Bell was a little bit jealous of all the negative attention.
I’m glad I’m late to the game on this one. Because I think I can say something that hasn’t been said yet. And this topic is so much bigger than Mark, or all the people he offended. This is all about what we think “real” men and women are…and how wrong we have it.
