MN for Marriage guy's new gig: Berating John Piper for not preaching against civil marriage

by Jeremy Hooper

Andy Parrish was the top guy and most visible face working on the failed Minnesota For Marriage (so-called) campaign. John Piper is a very famous evangelical who happens to call Minnesota home.

Andy Parrish is still really, really, really, realllllllly sore over the historic loss that he helped bring about for his side. So to help salve his wounds, Andy—who is also in the news for vowing to not abde by gun laws— has a new Twitter habit: responding to just about anything John Piper tweets with questions about why the preacher didn't step up and try to sway local voters. Oh, and sometimes he evens throws Satan into the mix (as the one who makes marriage political from our side):

And they say we are the ones who are silencing outspoke pastors? With behavior like this, it's the "protect marriage" crowd that is going to turn off this nation's prominent preacher class, not us. What kind of preacher wants to be told what to do by a professional politico?!

It's also really obtuse behavior, considering the state is currently debating whether or not to expand the freedom to marry, with the very same Minnesota For Marriage coalition working to oppose. Is Andy trying to make it easy for us? Because he is.
