Mark Driscoll's tweet puts him on a pedestal while dousing him with radiant heroism. "It's unloving not to say that." How noble. How righteous ... ly arrogant. In a sense, Driscoll uses a hypocritical slash and burn tactic against everyone not Christian. And friends of non-Christians don't like it. If Driscoll wants an even bigger firestorm, he should address the Dalai Lama directly. Or Mohammed.   

As one critic put it, such rhetoric causes divisiveness when the world's religions and ideologies should be coming together. It is, in fact, the kind of divisiveness that caused Leviticus to be written while the Jews were in captivity: the Chosen People were special and needed to separate themselves from idolaters. 

On my blog,   Sacred Cows Make The Best Hamburgers, I'm thinking about instituting an annual Righteous Arrogance Award to be voted on by readers (and, yes, I'll include myself as a nominee, for even bloggers about RA can be R[ly]A at times). I will, of course, post all the nominees and the winner towards the end of the year in a full article (on OpEdNews as well).

Driscoll, of course, is the first nominee.
