There is perhaps nothing so funny in the world of crazy religions as a cult of neo-Calvinism in Seattle, of all places. Mark Driscoll's affected schoolboy masculinity and over-compensatory disdain for "feminization" and "limp wrists" and so forth and so on suggest a man who will never get over the shame of having sucked a cock or two in high school. Anyway, the laff line:
Driscoll’s New Calvinism underscores a curious fact: the doctrine of total human depravity has always had a funny way of emboldening, rather than humbling, its adherents.Would you call this a "curious fact"? You mean that absolution from responsibility and moral culpability via belief in predestination will encourage men to behave with hubris? Shocking. Just shocking.
