Sorry but did Mark Driscoll just say that they’re supplying a “better alternative”?

Sounds less like a marketing spin, and more like the sort of mind games Alex Ferguson plays before a big game…

(EDIT – 25th October: Looks like this tea cup storm has come to an end. A response from Pastor Scott Hagan, Mars Hill Community (Sacramento), and a report from Christian Post)
