  •  John MacArthur is a sick bigot (11+ / 0-)

    I have never ranted or maligned a person before on dkos, not even Bush. But I must share that I once attended a Sunday service by John MacArthur at his Cal.  church and was so offended I marched out.  Yes, I marched, didn't walk or attempt to quietly leave without disrupting the service. I proudly, noisily marched out along the center aisle.

    John MacArthur is a disgusting bigot who, within minutes of his sermon, insulted, degraded, and railed against "Homasexuls" and "libruls." I was shocked at his venom and energized hate, from a pulpit! It was  as if I had innocently entered some bizarre Nazi meeting. I suddenly noticed that smack in the middle of SoCal diversity, this huge church was full of all white families and as I looked around at the approving faces I could only bow my head and ask for mercy for all of us.

    So, CNN, how did you find John MacArthur?  Who booked this mutant pastor? And why?

    I can find good in everything...maybe this exposure will serve the public and shine some light on the despicable John MacArthur...or CNNs booking agents.

      MacArthur is very impressed with himself. I used to know a gay organist who worked there (St. Andrews Presbyterian, Newport Beach, CA). It always boggled that he could work in that environment.

      MacArthur is one of the biggest thugs in the upheaval in PCUSA. His wife is also an MFCC who tries to 'change' gays into straights.

      They are evil.

      Blessed are the arrogant...for they shall be really impressed with themselves.

        is an interesting thought, does anyone know how much the pastors of the mega churches etc or Mr.MacArthur himself earns in a year. As "non profit" is there a site where you can see the financial reporting?

        •  Not a megachurch. (0+ / 0-)

          St. Andrews is just a big, prestigious, affluent mainline protestant church. Being in a mainline denomination, MacArthur probably makes well under $200k. But that's just salary. He probably gets a fair take from writing and speaking. Of course it's not anywhere near his nemesis up the freeway, Schuller. But that's one of the things that sticks in his craw.

          Blessed are the arrogant...for they shall be really impressed with themselves.
