Yeah, it's a copy of that.

OH PLEASE. You expect them to punish the cops for BEING RUDE? Jesus. Complaints like yours keep the real complaints from getting adequately considered. So they threatened to arrest you, hmm? Lemmetellya a story.
This is a story all about how my life got changed, flipped upside-down--ok not really. ahem.
I lit a cigarette at a downtown metro stop once. Yep, pretty vile, I know. It was a little past midnight, and a giant bald transit cop with open sores on his face came yelling at me... yelling hilarious insults. like, "what the fuck you think you're doing, BRAINIAC?" he called me "genius" and "einstein" about a dozen times, and I immediately got a pretty vivid portrait of this guy's career arc, starting in high school.
My main mistake was that, after he asked me what I thought I was doing, I slowly looked at him, looked at my cigarette, and then looked back at him with a blank expression on my face. That was enough.
Every time I spoke, I said "yes sir/no sir". I immediately put the cigarette out--but it was too late. He slammed me up against a wall, cuffed me, and then slammed me up against various walls about 3 or 4 more times, after I was made defenseless with my hands cuffed behind my back. He yanked me back and forth, holding the middle of the handcuffs, pulled me backwards in the street until I fell, etc. crazy.
Long story slightly shorter, I spent the night in county.
I wasn't drunk, I wasn't insolent.. just in the wrong place at the wrong time. this was in 2010.
P.S. A different set of cops took me to county. When I was en route, they asked me what happened. I said,"I'm not sure exactly what I did, but I guess I pissed that officer off..." and one immediately said, "oh, if you pissed him off, you'd be on your way to the HOSPITAL, not county!" and then they laughed.
...and laughed.
I met some pretty cool people in county that night, so it wasn't a total loss! :)

MARS HILL: THE SAME OLD INTOLERANT, FUNDAMENTALIST WOLF DRESSED IN A WOOL HIPSTER OUTFIT.

I was raised in a Jehovah's Witness environment. I was involved in the church into my twenties and my father was and is a pastor in that religion--thus can say with conviction (pun intended) that this shit is the EXACT same fundamentalist, manipulative, small-minded rhetoric. The mention of the Mars Hill Kids development resonated particularly with me, as I will deal with (essentially) the same psychological triggers mentioned in this story for the rest of my life--when planted during infancy, as Driscoll talked about, oh yes, they get planted THAT deep. It is something NO LOVING PARENT would ever burden their child with. Period.

It begs to be shouted: this is the SAME sick strategy Jehovah's Witnesses use! THE SAME! The misogyny, the intolerance, the threats, the social punishment--not even Driscoll's pathetic methods are original!!! More importantly, though, they defy ALL of Jesus Christ's teachings, and that is the most sickening of all. Wanna talk about the "authority of the church" in this context? It is astoundingly anti-christian. READ MATTHEW 23:27. READ MATTHEW 7:3.

P.S. @Vertex (& all defending this church and thinking that this is how "Christians" act)- Not only are you *NOT* acting like Christ did, but you are all morons, as well. Yes, as in stupid, unintelligent. Think I'm attacking you Ad hominem? Think again (if you have the capability)! It's empirical: http://pss.sagepub.com/content/early/201…
Read it if you can manage it.
Here's a taster: "Lower levels of abstract reasoning also predicted greater right-wing authoritarianism, which in turn predicted elevated prejudice against homosexuals [amongst other groups]. Independent of these effects, there was a simultaneous indirect effect through increased intergroup contact: Individuals who had a greater capacity for abstract reasoning experienced more contact with out-groups, and more contact predicted less prejudice."

You are, indeed, as Jesus called it, whitewashed graves... of the soul and the mind.

Amen, brothers and sisters!
