The comment he tweeted here on Inauguration Day has triggered a veritable tsunami of (rightfully) negative reactions across the web. If you haven't yet seen the extent of it, just Google "Mark Driscoll Obama," and you'll get a pretty good idea.
There's just one problem with the widespread indignation generated by Driscoll's remarks: It's counterproductive and a waste of time, even though I agree with it entirely. Here's why.
Mark Driscoll, pastor of Mars Hill Church in Seattle, is an attention whore. He'll say or do whatever it takes to get people to pay attention to him. It doesn't matter whether the reaction is positive or negative. As long as his name is in the headlines — and the public is talking about him, for better or for worse — he's met his goal.
