“Mark Driscoll Kicks His Own Ass”

This article nearly made me pee my pants in the library earlier. Here’s one of my favourite bits –  it’s almost hard to tell it’s satire:

“This is what being a pastor is about, guys. If you can’t handle it, go back to teaching yoga or playing My Little Pony with the other girls.”

The rest of the session followed the same general tone, with Driscoll ridiculing insulated coffee cups, haiku and dental floss as feminine while extolling athletic cups, tobacco spit and broken load-bearing bones as being “essential for a pastor.”

The scary part? They made up (I think) the spoof blog-name “jesuswasaman.blogspot.com”, and I typed it into the address bar for laffs – turns out it automatically relocates to Driscoll’s Mars Hill Church website! WTF?!

Postscript: Here are some excellent critiques..
