Shit Talk Everclear to Play Mars Hill Church
posted by April 4 at 9:11 AMon
As if you didn’t have enough reason to hate Everclear (the domestic violence, the last 10 years of shitty albums):
On Saturday, April 5th Mars Hill Downtown has the privilege of hosting Everclear as they play a benefit show for a local Seattle homeless ministry. The proceeds from this event will go to support New Horizons Ministries, a Christian service agency whose mission as a multi-cultural organization is to be in relationship with homeless and street involved young people, serving and loving in the way of Jesus, equipping them to leave street life.
Showtime is 8:00 pm on Saturday, April 5th and doors will open at 7:00 pm. All tickets are for general admission seating and will go on sale at 10:00 am on Thursday March 24th. Tickets available exclusively through www.ticketweb.com for $15 plus service and other fees.
In case you’re just tuning in, here’s some choice sermons from Mars Hill (thanks, ECB):
God does not want women to have jobs. Their role is to get married, stay at home and have as many babies as possible. (Conveniently, birth control is immoral, too.) “Women will be saved by going back to that role that God has chosen for them. Ladies, if the hair on the back of your neck stands up it is because you are fighting your role in the scripture.”
Women also should not seek leadership roles, either in society (“There is no occasion where women led a society and were its heads and the men complied and followed. … It’s a matter of Biblical creation”) or in the church (“Every single book in your Bible is written by a man.”)
“Homosexuality is an abomination. People who are gay can change. “Your banners, your floats, your buttons—they’re not good. It’s just like letting cancer come into a body… until the cancer consumes the body and kills you. … We will extricate the cancer, and if that person who has the cancer is repentant and wants to kill the cancer, then we’ll welcome them back. But they have to accept that anything but one man, one woman, one God, one life is sexually immoral.”
“Evolution is a lie. Humans were descended from a man named Adam created by God a few thousand years ago. “The lord God formed the man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life. This is the making of the first human being, our father Adam. We all descend from him and there was no human life before this man.”
“Hell is a real, physical place, and“it’s hot. Real hot.”
