Rule #145 of Hacking Christianity: if you are clergy, please don’t pose for pictures of you partying it up in a nightclub both surrounded by women and drinking $10k bottles of champagne. And then, even if you do on the DL, don’t get them uploaded to the internets. It’s just embarrassing.
I’m not too concerned about him going to a nightclub or partying; that’s a personal decision. The guy is a part-time priest and may understand that to mean he can put his calling on the shelf for a few hours. Or perhaps this is getting to know people in new places. That’s not my understanding of a calling or well-thought-out evangelism, but I’m not gonna judge another’s call.
However, I will be very interested to hear how this guy reconciles blowing thousands of dollars on a nightclub night with his call to ministry to feed the hungry, clothe the naked, and visit the stranger. Though he states that he does that sort of ministry already and earned all spent money through his business advocating for hemophiliacs, I’m not convinced such wastefulness is reconcilable with ministry.
For now, I leave you with a picture-perfect violation of rule #145 of the Hacking Christianity Guidebook. You are welcome.
