17h17 UTC; WEDNESDAY, 9 SEPTEMBER 2014: For Mark "Mars Hill" Driscoll and his Pacific Northwest megachurch, whose teachings are replete with "Biblical" misogyny and homophobia of the crudest sort, these are not the best of times--especially where you have the prospect of like-minded "Christian" Zealots who enjoy whining about the prospect of Mass Christian Persecution holding Driscoll up as "proof" of the Clear and Present Imminence thereof in Thy Dear and Lovely Land.

Especially where things have reached the point where 17 branches of his Mars Hill Church are being closed or otherwise consolidated due to declining finances, including one in Portland, OR whose dominie, by name and stylee of Pastor Mark Dunford, has published an open letter accusing Driscoll of consolidating power and creating what amounts to a climate of fear and loathing within his congregation. And Not Only That: Late last month, blogger "Wentachee the Hatchet" uncovered some rather tasteless remarks that Driscoll wrote online in 2001 under name and stylee of "William Wallace II" wherein his Biblically-Ordained Misogyny is apparent:
The first thing to know about your penis is, that despite the way it may seem, it is not your penis. Ultimately, God created you and it is his penis. You are simply borrowing it for a while.

While His penis is on loan you must admit that it is sort of just hanging out there very lonely as if it needed a home, sort of like a man wondering the streets looking for a house to live in. 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.

[***]

Therefore, if you are single you must remember that your penis is homeless and needs a home. But, though you may believe your hand is shaped like a home, it is not. And, though women other than your wife may look like a home, to rest there would be breaking into another man’s home. And, if you look at a man it is quite obvious that what a homeless man does not need is another man without a home.
Having read thus far, does thou not sense the homophobia as is inherent in the theology of Mars Hill Church, whose reputation was built on trick, deception and exploitation of the weak and vulnerable such as are likely to be congregants of "megachurches" generally?

As President Obama prepares to explain his strategem to challenge the depravities
of the so-called "Islamic State" in an address to the American People and Nation this evening, there will certainly be such who would rather that "Sacred War" in the stylee of the Crusades of the Middle Ages be engaged to deal with Islam, "root and branch," to be followed by a New AmeriKKKan Colonialism not unlike that which we exercised in the Philippines from 1898 until 1946 reinforced by the Fiery Cross of Bible-Believing Christianity as but the first phase of Thy Dear and Lovely Land asserting her Divinely-Ordained Will and Mandate as Lord and Master of the World, the Universe and the 28 Known Galaxies by Divine Will and Edict.

Never mind that the whole is likely to bankrupt Thy Dear and Lovely Land's finances to the point where the Evil Empire of the "New World Order" is preparing to goosestep it, Nazi Germany-stylee, and trample same underfoot in a manner not unlike General Sherman's March Through Georgia in late 1864 as managed to weaken the Confederacy big-time through what would now be called "scorched-earth" tactics.

Memo to Real Americans who still prefer Target over Walmart out of the former's social conscience and scruples: Just ignore the call from the so-called "AmeriKKKan Family Association" to thus boycott for its tacit support of gay rights and same-gender marriage, which the AFA insists are a Threat and Peril to Traditional Biblically-Ordained Values--the same ones, know, apartheid South Africa expected of its "entitled [and] privileged" white minority, particularly so if deemed to be of "Afrikaner" derivation (descended, by and large, from early Dutch, German and French Huguenot settlement in the Dutch East India Company's settlement at the Cape of Good Hope under auspices of Jan van Riebeck in 1652), and reinforced by the agency of such institutions as the Three Afrikaner Churches in their Luscious Glory of Calvinist theology, the Voortrekkers youth organisation and the Afrikaans Service of the South African Broadcorping Castration (especially prior to television's arrival there in 1976).

Oh, and One Last Thing: For such among you as would like to follow this blog in Facebook, you'll be pleased to know where finding its page (where blog posts can also be discerned, and commented on--not to mention shared across Facebook) is a little more easier than previously. As in at this location online. Please to tell your friends, especially such seeking to join this blog via Facebook.

So till next time, folks: "73"
