QUOTE: "At a time when American young people are hit in the face with graphic sexuality in every facet of our culture, the church should be a safe haven where the sacredness and privacy of the act of marriage is respected by pastors. ... For generations, Christian pastors have managed to convey the Scripture's teachings on fornication, adultery and the beauty of sexuality within marriage without sullying and cheapening it. Mark Driscoll is a sad product of our times. While waving his orthodox doctrinal credentials, he has simultaneously embraced the spirit of the age when it comes to his treatment of sex. In the process, he is pornifying the church and only adding to the moral squalor of our culture." --Ingrid Schlueter, producer and host of Crosstalk Radio Talk Show, criticizing Seattle's Mars Hill Church pastor Mark Driscoll for his frequent and often explicit way of addressing the topic of sex from the pulpit [bpnews.com, 2/11/09]
