More on Mark Driscoll

In light of all the discussion about my post on Mark Driscoll (and why his theological beliefs don’t really allow him to worship Jesus), allow me to commend to you a very interesting, and at times painful article by Lauren Sandler that was done on Driscoll and his Seattle-based evangelical empire in Salon magazine.  You may also be interested in her book, Righteous, which is a pretty interesting social ethnography of the contemporary Christian youth culture.

    Frightening would be a word I would add to “interesting” and “painful”.

    The article reminded me a lot of my high school years when I thought of myself as a “Christian punk”. I was “hardcore for Jesus”, so much so that I even condescendingly said “I’m sorry” when a girl in my Japanese class told me she was Wiccan.

    Fudamentalism with tattoos, piercings and rock ‘n roll is still fundamentalism. And it’s icky.

    X-treme Jesus! Rock on! JCHC! RAHHHRR!

    frightening is exactly what I said… actually I think it was “that is the scariest thing I have ever read.”

    I’m going to go cry now .
