Mars Hill Protest Agenda

posted by on November 29 at 18:00 PM

Regarding Sunday’s protest in Ballard, a reader asked…

Is the group organizing the protest at Mars Hill on Sunday pro-gay or anti-gay? I know that the protest is specifically in response to Driscoll’s recent anti-woman comments, but I don’t want to go if they turn out to be anti-gay and pro-woman (which I think is really retarded). The last thing I want to do is support a group who only condemns Mars Hill and Driscoll for one thing and not the 10 gazillion other things that are wrong with it.

People Against Fundamentalism organizer Paul Chapman says…

People Against Fundamentalism is not an anti-gay group. However, for the sake of the clarity of our message, we are keeping our protest specifically about Mark Driscoll’s demeaning comments about women.

Of course you can choose your own message on Sunday (I’d like to protest the fictional nature of religion).

If they organized a bunch of atheists to try to convert the Mars Hill people I would totally be there.

Great idea, Tiffany. When do we do it? Easter? We could make little chocolate Richard Dawkinses and hand them out.

It's Sunday--10AM at mars hill church ballard.
I'm guessing Paul and PAF are probably pro gay, since Paul's wife has come across as more or less pro gay on her blog,

The sad thing is that there aren't enough atheists to form a good-sized crowd. We are the last unrecognized and maligned minority. We have to stand with the less-horrible/more-tolerant Christians on this one.
