I want to thank Rachel Held Evans for being a part of the inspiration behind this cartoon. In a recent post of hers, The Absurd Legalism of Gender Roles: Exhibit C–“As Long As I Can’t See Her…”, she said,
Piper is essentially arguing that so long as he does not have to acknowledge my humanity, so long as I keep a safe distance so he is unaware of the pitch of my voice and the presence of my breasts, he can, perhaps, learn something about the Bible from me.
I wrote a critique of a 3 minute interview of Piper on Youtube where he seems to betray his assumption that guys always think about sex and that women should not teach men authoritatively.
I pick on Piper’s theology, as well as people like Driscoll, because they represent a huge part of the Christian culture. They are looked up to as male role models within the Church and offer themselves as such. That makes their ideas fair game.
