US pastor notorious for anti-woman comments invited to Hillsong national conference

Mr Driscoll is infamous for past sermons that referred to women as being created to house a man's penis.

He has also claimed under an online pseudonym that men in the "pussified nation" of the US were being raised by "bitter penis-envying burned feministed single mothers".

Hoorah for cut-n-paste !!! :D

But you missed:

In one infamous oration, Mr Driscoll preached: "Ultimately, God created you and it is his penis. You are simply borrowing it for a while.

"Knowing that his penis would need a home, God created a woman to be your wife. And when you marry her and look down you will notice that your wife is shaped differently than you and makes a very nice home."

AC: I think that Driscoll was making a mountain out of a molehill

But can Jonathan Safari prove Driscoll wrong?

^^^^ The above church should read the Bible instead of posting anti-biblical attacks on reason.

Is Driscoll a friend of yours ?

Don't disenfranchise your customers. Beryl Baptists are rootin' tootin' Bible bashin' young earth creationists just like you. Reason *is* the greatest threat to that world view.

I wouldn't be surprised if this were a fake sign posted by atheopaths as dishonest as you about the biblical connection between reason and faith. No one can confirm the veracity of the sign (http://thefilecabinet.blogspot.com/2009/03/kind-of-back-handed-compliment.html). Nothing on the church's website hints at disdain for reason. For the record, Christians don't need dead white male philosophers and atheists like Bertrand Russell defining our terms for us.

I am pleased to say that Hillsong have withdrawn their invitation to Mark Driscoll. Some of what he has said is unbiblical rubbish.

You could learn quite a lot from Bertrand Russell if you had a mind that was open to reason.

You could sound intelligent if you didn't make false assertions. I have learned quite a lot from Bertrand Russell in his own field of expertise, mathematical logic. But I don't need him to (mis)define biblical terms for me.

I think you're right about the latter, but it's likely that Hillsong didn't withdraw the invitation on principled grounds but only because of the negative publicity.

I gave some poor guy a few bucks for his novel today. Big effort to be standing on the street giving away a book you wrote and printed. Turns out he is Dave McKay, small time cult celebrity!

Anyway - lots of good stuff here if you can bear to register for Pinterest
