This just boggles my mind (via Andrew):
David Frum [conservative writer for the National Review Online] didn't really argue that a meth-snorting homophobe who for three years cheated on his wife with a male prostitute while at the same time denouncing gay relationships is more moral than an openly gay man, did he? Oh yes he did.
And this is even worse, check out what Pastor Mark Driscoll has to say about the Pastor Ted affair (via Andrew again):
Most pastors I know do not have satisfying, free, sexual conversations and liberties with their wives. At the risk of being even more widely despised than I currently am, I will lean over the plate and take one for the team on this. It is not uncommon to meet pastors’ wives who really let themselves go; they sometimes feel that because their husband is a pastor, he is therefore trapped into fidelity, which gives them cause for laziness. A wife who lets herself go and is not sexually available to her husband in the ways that the Song of Songs is so frank about is not responsible for her husband’s sin, but she may not be helping him either.
Uh no Pastor Mark Driscoll, if you want to assign any blame, start with yourself and your fellow pastors. Take a good long hard look at what you have been preaching and the devastating repercussions that result from it. You are responsible for that tragedy.
You are a coward and an idiot. How dare you blame Pastor Ted’s wife. You are one sorry excuse for a human being! Shame on you and go to hell!
