If this continues, we’ll be out of a job.
The Mars Hill Church in Seattle, which claims 10,000 weekly attendees (yes, it makes us a little bit ill, too) is being targeted for picketing this Sunday by our buddies at Westboro Baptist Church. We have confirmed on Westboro’s website that this picketing is scheduled, but will not link to it because it’s got enough Google love and doesn’t need ours.
And how is the Washington megachurch responding? According to CNN, with a message that says, “This False Prophet and His Blind Lemmings Welcome You to Our Whore House for God’s Grace and Free Donuts.”
On the Mars Hill blog, Driscoll tells the Westboro picketers that “If you make it, we’ll also give you free copies of my book, Doctrine, so you can learn what the Bible says about who God actually is, and we’ll also provide fresh donuts and free coffee, along with smiles and chuckles.”
We’re turning the sarcasm machine off in honor of our dads today, and tipping our hat to Mars Hill pastor Mark Driscoll. Don’t worry, Mark. We’ll get you another day.
