I'm in love with an atheist, Hemant Mehta, the The Friendly Atheist
. In my philosophical construct, he and I are no different, but are essentially connected and united. So we might as well seal the deal.
I know this comes as a shock to many of you because this last April Fool's Day me and Rob Bell were married
. But I just can't help myself.
He wrote a post today about "It's Perfectly Acceptable To Mock Church Culture"
in which he applauds Stephanie Drury of Stuff Christian Culture Likes
and me, the nakedpastor
, for critiquing all that is wrong with the church and its leaders. I don't like the word "mock". I prefer "critique", but, oh well. Whatevs.
If you want to read some background about the point of his post, you can read my post, "Richard Clark and the Preemption of Anger"
where I critique his typical chastisement of the likes of Stephanie and me for giving people too much space and time to vent their anger, frustrations, and heal from their wounds.
So I just wanted to give him a shout out and say thanks.
