In 2006, Pastor Mark Driscoll published a book called Confessions of a Reformission Rev.: Hard Lessons from an Emerging Missional Church in which he admitted to secretly participating in his own church’s online forums:
At this time, our church also started an unmoderated discussion board on our website, called Midrash, and it was being inundated with postings by emerging-church type feminists and liberals. I went onto the site and posted as William Wallace II, after the great Scottish man portrayed in the movie Braveheart, and attacked those who were posting.
In the wake of all the bad publicity surrounding Mars Hill Church lately, with its cult-like structure and exodus of church members who are sharing their horror stories online, Driscoll and his allies are doing everything they can to scrub his past statements from their website.
