With two sick kids, I've had a lot of time on the couch and on the Internet. So today somehow I came across this gem - "The Mark Driscoll Scholarship for Women in Ministry."
As a person who believes in women in ministry (gasp!) AND as one who actually thinks Mark Driscoll has some good things to say sometimes (gasp!) I find the antics behind "the Mark Driscoll Scholarship Fund for Women in Ministry" disturbing. I do not find it "absolutely hilarious" or "priceless," I find it to lack class and the love of Christ.
I guess what frustrates me so much is many of these people spout off how open minded and compassionate they are, and then they go and do something like this.
I am all for having differences in opinion. (I mean, Hello! I go to a Reformed SBC church even though I believe in women in ministry and in the charismatic gifts of the spirit.) I am all for holding people accountable because I think Mark Driscoll has said some pretty ridiculous things, and I don't always agree with his approach or style. I also get annoyed by feminists like Rachel Held Evans a lot of the time, and for the record I don't think I agree with much of anything of Shane Claiborne's theology. But I don't think we mock someone in our disagreements, especially if we call ourselves Christians. And even if we claim, "Well Mark Driscolll does such-and-such," I don't think that gives us the right to respond in an unChristlike way.
I guess I better just stay off the Internet today.
