Mark Driscoll Paid for Honeymoon with Church Funds
Dear Al Mohler and other marriage-obsessed weenies who keep insulting the state of singleness to promote marriage:
Here’s another example of how being a married person did not make that person more ethical, mature, giving, or godly than someone who is single.
Does doofus Mark Driscoll ever pay off rent or groceries or whatever for single adults, one wonders?
Not that it would be okay to mis-use church funds on that, either.

….When Pastor Mark Driscoll told Joey Manuele and his fiancée at a staff Christmas party that he’d pay for their honeymoon, Joey Manuele was stunned.
…A couple weeks later, the Manueles received a check for the full amount. But to their surprise, the check wasn’t from Driscoll, but from The Trinity Church.
“I was like, ‘Wait! He never said it was coming from the church!’” Joey Manuele said. “(Driscoll) said ‘me, me,’ like ‘I’m going to give it to you. I want to do this for you.’ And then we get a check from the church . . . So that was a shock.”
…Joey Manuele added that the honeymoon stay wasn’t the only unsolicited gift Driscoll gave him and his wife.
…Manuele, whose entire family was recently kicked out of the church, said he now suspects the gifts were intended to buy his loyalty.

In light of news stories like this, and other, similar ones I’ve posted before about married people, including self professing Christians, who behave as un-ethical weasels to out right scum buckets,
I never, ever want Al Mohler or Bradford or other marriage and nuclear family promoters pushing marriage or parenthood by arguing that parenthood and marriage makes people more mature, godly, responsible, ethical, etc, when clearly, that is NOT the case.
