theological progression or regression?

theological progress cartoon by nakedpastor david hayward

However, I'm still amazed at how quickly some people will rush in to try to provide balance to what I say but actually expose themselves as defenders of the perpetrators and perhaps even as perpetrators themselves.You speak up for women and someone will quickly add, "There are women who oppress men … [Read more...]
