Interwebs – Orthodox Christians reacted strongly on social media to a recent blog by Pulpit and Pen concerning the Bible Answer Man’s conversion to Orthodoxy, and a blog about a visit to his church. In response, the President offered a heartfelt, unapologetic apology.
The apology did not accomplish all of its goals, since Orthodox Christians still “practice necromantic prayers to the dead,” and “engage in corpse worship,” but Orthodox Christians everywhere have completely renounced synergism. In a surprising joint statement, the Patriarch of Constantinople, Bartholomew I, and the Patriarch of the Russian Orthodox Church, Kirill said, “Pulpit and Pen have convinced us that there is Total Depravity. It is very real as evidenced by the writers for this blog.”
The discernment blog’s devotees who belong to the Facebook Group, Pulpit Bunker, missed the news. They were busy mocking the looks and activities of women who are evangelical leaders, booting people out of their group that do not appreciate the weak journalism, and deciding what other Christians to declare damned.
