Horne Blowing

Mark Horne responded to me here, writing,

I can’t condemn every single thing in this since he lists maybe a couple of things I’ve apologized for. As for the rest, well, feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

But I’m not sure why he writes that he “apologized for” a couple of these things because I didn’t see any apologies appended to the offending posts and, quite obviously, if he had apologized for the offenses, common courtesy would require him to replace the offending post with the apology — not leave the post in place and say, “Well, I apologized for it.” In fact, the absence of apologies in the face of so much insolence combined with an obvious hard heart and a stiff middle finger leads me to wonder why this man remains in the ministry at all. What Bible is he reading?

Mr. Horne, I think it’s time to rethink your calling because, from this layman’s perspective, you blew it.
