Debunking The Latest Blast At Brodersen
““I have said all these things to you to keep you from falling away.They will put you out of the synagogues. Indeed, the hour is coming when whoever kills you will think he is offering service to God.And they will do these things because they have not known the Father, nor me.”
(John 16:1–3 ESV)
On February 24 of this year Karl MacCorcrain officiated a same sex wedding.
After he posted pictures of the nuptials, the conservative wing of what was once Calvary Chapel exploded in outrage.
Here on this blog, a comment was left implicating MacCorcrain’s father, John Henry Corcoran of Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa and of course, Brian Brodersen.
MacCorcrain’s officiating a gay wedding was offered as proof that Brodersen, CC Costa Mesa, and the Calvary Global Network were flying head first into apostasy.
MacCorcrain used to be on staff at Costa Mesa.
Key phrase there is “used to be”.
He hasn’t been on staff there since 2014.
For those of you who are numerically challenged, that’s four years.
When contacted by me personally, MacCorcrain was shocked that a line was drawn to either his father or Brodersen for his actions as an independent agent.
He was clear that he is not affiliated with CCCM or Brodersen.
There will be a statement forthcoming from him, which I will publish here.
Not content with maligning Brodersen and Corcoran with the actions of someone acting independently, our commenter also had to malign family members.
In a moderated comment, further gross accusations were leveled against Brodersen and, as a bonus, false accusations against me that were allegedly part of a file Costa Mesa kept on me.
Welcome to church.
For the record, Brodersen has been clear about his opposition to same sex marriage.
For the record, Karl MacCorcrain is not affiliated with Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa or any other Calvary Chapel.
For the record, there has not been a shred of evidence given by or to anyone to back up the allegations against Brodersen.
For the record, it seems that nothing is beneath doing or saying by Brodersen’s enemies to take him down.
For the record, the scripture I posted makes me very nervous…some people think that destroying a man and his family is a favor to God.
“And they will do these things because they have not known the Father, nor me.”
