So, how fitting. My last post talks about having grace for Christians, and on Saturday, @JesusNeedsNewPR brought my attention to a piece by Mark Driscoll on Poverty Theology. Pastor Mark and I have a history. Some of his offhanded comments about gender were what inspired my first post ever on this blog. Anyway, when I saw this tweet come across, the precise use of scare-quoting set the tone as I began to read it, but my reaction wasn't what you might expect. I expected to find myself flying off of the handle.
But in the end, it just made me profoundly sad.
