“Thus Male Headship” – Christianity and Gender Essentialism

gender

by Kristen Rosser cross posted from her blog Wordgazer's WordsMy last two posts have involved the use of sociological studies by Christians, in support of the doctrine of male headship, known in its harsher and gentler forms, respectively, as "Christian patriarchy" or "complementarianism."  Using science as a support for our premises is very characteristic of the culture of Western thought in which most of us have been steeped since birth. And of course, rebutting or debunking the science or scientific methodology behind premises we disagree with, comes from the same basic mindset.The problem, as I mentioned in my last post, is when we pounce on evidence that seems to support our own pos … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Jessa Duggar and the Holocaust

jessagoodwill

Have been avoiding posting this on NLQ because it's so disgraceful, displaying a lack of knowledge, historical perspective or understanding on the part of Jessa Duggar. Plus, I hate giving space to any one in the Christian Patriarch Movement that violates Godwin's Law, making their arguments invalid by referencing Nazis, Hitler or the Holocaust. But it keeps popping up on all sorts of sites and links. … [Read more...]
