My good ol’ pal Josh McDowell is kvetching about the Internet and how atheists are using it to destroy everything he has built his book and video empire upon.
In a recent speech at the Billy Graham water park just inside of Asheville, NC, the following was written in this article.
“What has changed everything?” asked the apologist from Campus Crusade for Christ International as he spoke on “Unshakable Truth, Relevant Faith” at the Billy Graham Center in Asheville, N.C., Friday evening. His answer was, the Internet.
“The Internet has given atheists, agnostics, skeptics, the people who like to destroy everything that you and I believe, the almost equal access to your kids as your youth pastor and you have… whether you like it or not,” said McDowell, who is author of two books on Christian apologetics, More than a Carpenter and New Evidence that Demands Verdict.
How ironic is this bullshit?
This is a guy who described himself as an agnostic in search of proving Christianity wrong when he was in college, but all the information at hand pointed toward the existence of God.
Now that there’s an Internet for kids to do their own research in ways he could have never dreamed, his panties get bunched up in his butt crack and he whines about the dissemination of information to young people.
My name is Joshua McDowell, and I’m an A-one hypocrite.
There’s also a part of the article bitching about kids and pornography. They reference a statistic that 90% of kids see pornography before the age of 16.
I was six when I saw my first Hustler magazine. Hell, my old man kept a couple inspirational dirty rags in his dresser (sorry, Old Fart!). Our neighbor friends’ dads (and moms) kept magazines around their houses.
Shoot, at six years old, my mom and dad were at my uncle’s house sitting in front of the Playboy channel with my aunt and some other people one evening when my brother and I walked in the room. I remember blushing, running from the room, and hiding in the back watching from around a corner.
What in the world is wrong with Josh McDowell?
Are kids stupid? Are adults even stupider?
I hate to break the news, Joshie boy … but the Internet didn’t usher in a pornography revolution.
