Mars Hill Church: Now Conveniently Closer to All the AIDS

Pastors of the Mars Hill Church this morning proudly announced the opening of their new downtown parish. Located at Fifth Avenue and Marion Street, they explain, the church is conveniently located near a neighborhood where there's lots and lots of AIDS.

"Being closer to Capitol Hill is a blessing as we are serving and ministering to those who are infected with AIDS on the hill,” said the email from Tim Gaydos, lead pastor of the downtown congregation, which does not allow gay people to join as members. The announcement from the youthful-but-socially-conservative church went on to note that Crosscut recently reported on "some of the church’s community reach efforts," a report that, in fact, contains no information about the church's charity work and certainly nothing about outreach to a neighborhood apparently riddled with AIDS.

A call to Mars Hill spokesman Justin Dean was returned with the promise that he would "get a hold of Pastor Tim and I'll have a response for you ASAP."

After the manner of Ben-Hur being lowered down to see momma and sissy.

Gaydos describes himself as a person with “an urban sensibility,” who cares about city people and city problems. Though he grew up in Edmonds, he went to college and seminary in Los Angeles. His wife is from L.A. She, Gaydos and their two daughters live at the Queen Anne end of Belltown


You can't make this stuff up . . .

I forgot that MH has a staff dedicated to searching online for anything MH or Driscoll related, I don't want the trouble. If you have questions, pm me.

I must hear more. Unfortunately, I knew he was a Catholic cause a person who will remain nameless practically forced youtube clips of him into my eyes.

To the bolded point, Driscoll takes the cake for embodying the absolute insane pathological manner Christians can view anything sexual / reproductive.
