Put an end to preaching by cheesy, whiny, quiche eating, preening Nancy Boys ... right now! It freaks us meat eaters out. Get it? Hire a pastor who throws off a good John Wayne vibe instead of that Boy George feeling. Know what I mean? And cheer on 'Pastor Wayne' to serve up the solid meat of the scripture - the stuff that prods the congregation to biblical maturity rather than prolonging their infancy.
Doug Giles makes some good points about the church losing some of its masculine character. I know that's a conversation I've had with several friends over the past few years of searching for church homes.
For the record, my pastor throws off a great John Wayne vibe. Just yesterday, he informed the congregation about tying fishing ties, and the joys of catch-and-throw-back fishing.
