    Church news of the day !!

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

    http://www.9news.com.au/national/201...6TiOeeLEKZa.99

    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 !!!

    from Sydney Morning Herald today

    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?
    Zionism is racism as defined by the UN, Israel by every dirty means available steals land and water, kill Palestinian freedom fighters and civilians, and operates an apartheid system to drive more Palestinians off their land

    So what's your excuse? To run like the devil's chasing you.

    ^^^^ The above church should read the Bible instead of posting anti-biblical attacks on reason.
    “The history of the 20th century is full of examples of countries that set out to redistribute wealth and ended up redistributing poverty.”

    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. 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    I am pleased to say that Hillsong have withdrawn their invitation to Mark Driscoll.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 hear that Brian Houston met with Mark Driscoll and the outcome was the invite was withdrawn.
