#1882: Dennis Lee (II)

Almost certainly not the same person as last entry’s Dennis Lee, this entry’s Dennis Lee is senior pastor of Living Waters Fellowship in Mesquite. Interestingly, “Living Waters” is also the name of Ray Comfort’s publishing company. This may or may not be a coincidence; we sort of suspect it’s not. In any case, Lee’s article “Discovering truth verses tolerance” (discussed here) gives you a fair idea about what he’s up to. It opens thusly: “I really don’t think there’s a single person that doesn’t think truth verses tolerance is an important topic for our day. That’s because it’s our society’s redefinition of tolerance that allows topics like abortion, euthanasia, homosexuality, and evolution to become so accepted while Christianity has become so hated and practically outlawed.” And that is really enough from Dennis Lee (II).

Diagnosis: Fundie loon with a well-developed persecution complex. He’s not alone, and although Lee’s own influence is probably rather limited, this kind of delusional nonsense deserves to be covered extensively in places like this Encyclopedia.
