Speaking of slavery…

If you haven’t yet stopped by Libby Anne’s blog, you should at the very least check out this post about Kirk Cameron and Doug Phillips.

Phillips teaches that a woman is never to be out from under male authority no matter her age or marital condition, and that being under male authority includes complete submission and obedience, because God speaks to women through their male authorities. This is nothing short of slavery.

Christians all too often criticize mainstream Muslims for failing to police the more radical and barbaric of their sects, but turn a blind eye to oppression and medieval morality in their own ranks.

    The irony is quite profound don’t you think? That they happily criticize other people for doing what they do while at the same time professing to believe a book that says:

    6:42 Either how canst thou say to thy brother, Brother, let me pull out the mote that is in thine eye, when thou thyself beholdest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Thou hypocrite, cast out first the beam out of thine own eye, and then shalt thou see clearly to pull out the mote that is in thy brother’s eye.


    7:5 Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye.

    Teh stupid. It burns.

    When I relocated to Texas a couple of years ago, got to hear some thoughts about a successful christian marriage on the radio driving down. Women were being assured that the key virtues for a christian wife were forgiveness (of cheating) and obedience. I could not help but wonder if the next week’s advice might be on how to pick out a fashionable burka.
