Mark Driscoll scares the crap out of me

I think it’s the way he’s leering at his wife while she sheepishly answers a question regarding the appropriate level of submissiveness towards one’s husband. In every video featuring his wife, she’s always at arms length, and looks ready to flinch as the slightest indication of anger. Think I’m being a little over-dramatic? Maybe, but some of his statements regarding “a woman’s responsibility in bed” indicate a very poor opinion of the opposite sex:

A wife who lets herself go and is not sexually available to her husband in the ways that the Song of Songs is so frank about is not responsible for her husband’s sin, but she may not be helping him either.

I can’t help but wonder what the hell is going through his mind while she’s talking. Is that what he looks like when he’s calm? Man, those Calvinists sure are angry, aren’t they?

    Jacob,

    Aren’t you making a quick decision about this marriage based on a short clip? I’m actually a huge fan of Mark’s and can tell you, based on his talks, that he seems to be a really great husband and dad.
