Hillsong Pastor Carl Lentz Fired

I know the list is long, but this story was released in Australian news today. 

The worst, imo, was giving a victim of rape a ‘red flag’ that meant she couldn’t work with children due to her sexual immorality.

I think the glitzy facade and trendy songs which Hillsong have relied on in the past are going to crumble even further and they will be exposed as an abusive cult. I hope so anyway.

That these could be considered equally disqualifying for a white evangelical pastor is Peak 20/20. 

I was reading the Twitter comments from the link in the first post, and someone asked if this disqualified Justin Bieber’s baptism (performed by the moral failure now under discussion), and then wrote

I thought 2021 was supposed to be better, but whatever.  The Biebs is here to help and thinks he can become a full-fledged minister in 1 year, pursue his music career at the same time AND SAVE HI

I hope so, too. They’ve been immune up on their glittery Jesus pedestal for far too long.

Mildly curious about Hailey Bieber's take on all of this. She notoriously votes Dem despite being from a conservative family and marrying young. They go to Hillsong and on the one hand I understand why, it's definitely compelling (totally guilty of owning a ton of their music) but at the same time you knew that it was at least as bad as Mars Hill, if not worse because of the scale. Hillsong is HUGE. And so many celebrities are at least loosely affiliated with it.

Scratch away the sequins and there's always a layer of patriarchal asshattery underneath. 

Reed and Jess Bogard stepped down as leaders of the Dallas branch of Hillsong because of scandals and inappropriate behaviour. That particular branch has now been closed and it's not clear if it will reopen.

I wonder if the Houstons have already started squirrelling money away in anticipation of further closures.

      I thought I found the part I need for my car on O'Reilly Auto Parts' website, but it looks like I can't get it at this time.

      A few weeks ago, I was telling @HerNameIsBuffy about the generously sized single carrot I received from Imperfect Foods. Well, today I got two more monsters in my box. I ordered a pound of carrots and a pound of sweet potatoes, and this is what they gave me:

      At its widest point, the sweet potato is nine inches in diameter, while the carrot tops out at seven and three-quarter inches. I kinda feel bad about my plans to eat them, as these two are definitely large enough to pursue careers in the adult film industry.

      Fuck. Both of my interns are in quarantine. One is positive, the other is a close contact (her exposure was from her roommate, not the other intern). I know six other people who are or were sick within the last month and at least four other people who've had to quarantine after close contact. Things were supposed to be getting better. 😷

      I think most of us on FJ dislike the way many of the fundies talk about "training" their children. I've often read FJers post, "You train a dog. You teach a child."
      I would also bet that most of us don't think about humans as being "well bred", like a good breeding line of purebred dogs. 
      I'm a bit nauseated right now from reading the phrase "well bred" applied to human beings so many times. What bullshit.
      And apparently, I think too much.

      I feel like we need a Rachel Hollis snark thread. She landed in a lot of trouble recently after a bad TIKTOK video. She isn't fundie, although she is the daughter of a Pentecostal minister.  I've been watching videos on Youtube about her, both from before the scandal and now. I didn't know much about her, but I'm catching up.

      Conservatives on mask mandates: they’re just trying to make people comply with government rules. Resist!
      Conservatives after yet another police shooting of an unarmed black man: He should have complied with the police’s orders.

      I have a pile of old vintage handkerchiefs with lace crochet edges. Anyone have any ideas on how to display or use them? My grandmother made some of them. Time to get them out of the drawer.

      Attention Massholes!
      There will be a drive-through J&J vaccine clinic in Rutland (near Worcester) on April 19-22, and as of this writing--about 9:30pm on Sunday, April 11--there are tons of slots open on all but the first day. Anyone who lives (or works?) in Massachusetts and is over 18 can sign up now.
      https://www.rrecc.us/vaccine
       
      [And for everyone else: yes, people from Massachusetts are called Massholes. People from elsewhere started calling us that as an insult, but we ran with it. Vaccine demand is wicked high here, so it's hard to get appointments. Hence the public service announcement.]
       
      Side note: I know that J&J allocations are dropping this week, but I presume, or at least hope, that they've planned for that and either already have the vaccines on hand or will get them.
