“Confessions of a Cage Fighter”

I’ve been intrigued by the conversation swirling around this provocative article that was published at The Other Journal: “The Confessions of a Cage Fighter: Masculinity, Misogyny, and the Fear of Losing Control.”

Matt Morin’s article does pick on one particular pastor. But that is, in part, because that particular pastor has made himself impossible to ignore on on this issue, and because he influences so many other leaders. 

I’m not sharing this as an attack on that pastor. I’m posting this in hopes of questioning a certain kind of theology that I’ve seen poison the conversation about faith, leadership, and what it means to be a Christian.

Read the whole thing, and then I encourage you to share it with your church leaders.
