Mark Driscoll Blames Women...
This is taken from Zach Lind's blog
(the drummer from Jimmy Eat World) about what Mark Driscoll
had to say about this Haggard situation. If you recall Driscoll's the guy who said some really horrible things about McLaren and Padgitt earlier this year... I'm too lazy to write about this myself... here's from Lind's post
Because he’s such a swell guy, Mark Driscoll has taken upon himself, in response to the Ted Haggard scandal, to share some “practical suggestions” on his personal blog as a way of encouraging young church leaders to avoid the pitfalls of sexual immorality. One of his suggestions is the following:
Most pastors I know do not have satisfying, free, sexual conversations and liberties with their wives. At the risk of being even more widely despised than I currently am, I will lean over the plate and take one for the team on this. It is not uncommon to meet pastors’ wives who really let themselves go; they sometimes feel that because their husband is a pastor, he is therefore trapped into fidelity, which gives them cause for laziness. A wife who lets herself go and is not sexually available to her husband in the ways that the Song of Songs is so frank about is not responsible for her husband’s sin, but she may not be helping him either.”
