In 1997, Wilson published a booklet defending antebellum slavery as a time of unparalleled racial harmony, and five years later he followed that up with a conference defending his ideas, all the while cavorting with white supremacists and white separatists in the League of the South. If Wilson feels evangelicals actually have stopped listening to him, I’m glad.  Click through to read more! Read more

Last year, Lori Alexander, an anti-feminist blogger, wrote a post about the Proverbs 31 woman. I came upon this post recently, and was struck by Alexander’s failure to take the passage at face value. For someone who claims to adhere to strict literalist interpretations of the Bible, this ain’t it.

For their part, evangelicals need to take five and consider how well their perception of the world—and of themselves as an embattled, persecuted minority—actually reflects reality. And then maybe they should stop listening to the NRA and start listening to communities forced to live in fear of being gunned down by white supremacists or anti-semites.  Click through to read more! Read more

We have become a people afraid of labels—but not of the things the labels describe. We are a people who will do and say things that are sexist, but if you call us sexist—well.
