And this one by Christian Piatt at his blog:
Here is a quote I like from Christian Piatt's Post:
"What’s more disturbing to me than all of the bullying, name-calling and shaming, sadistic tactics employed by the church leadership is that so many seem to accept this as a proper way to act as church to one another. Where is the grace? Where is the offer to help the couple reconcile or part peacefully? There’s not even a hint of the old draconian “love the sinner, hate the sin” ethos. It’s more like “hate the sin, abuse the sinner and shame him back into conformity.”
Christian Pratt wants to know where the grace is. I can't answer that.
But I'll tell you what the evidence says about where Grace Driscoll is.
(Another quote from Piatt's post):
"...as senior pastor Mark Driscoll often proclaims from the pulpit, women are '
inferior weaker vessels.' Women, in their inferior state, can’t be expected to be held accountable in the same way as men, who always bear the burden of forced aggression. Period."
(Mara again. Having trouble making blogger behave and take away the white space behind the letters)
Grace is in a weakened and inferior position force upon her by the relentless bullying of her husband. Grace is nothing but a shell of herself, an obedient little doll who knows how to display her plastic, little smile and nod her submissive, little head on cue in order to prop up her husband's raging ego and to keep the charade up of "Happy couple, Happy family, Happy church" going indefinitely. She must do this so that they can pay the light bill and she can go to the gym so she can be, "Hot, hot, hot!" for the man who owns and dominates her.
I could be wrong about this, of course. But this is what most all of the evidence strongly points to.
