Bob Cargill on the Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood

Bob Cargill recently discovered the “Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood.” I particularly appreciated this thought of his on the topic:

if this group had the word “Islamic” in it, and all of the members were citing the Qur’an and the women pictured were in burqas or veils, I’m guessing the members of this same CBMW group would condemn it as Sharia Law fundamentalism suppressing the rights of woman. But somehow, because it’s a Christian organization and they’re citing the Bible, this group has no problem suppressing the roles of women, and citing divine authority in doing so.
