by Tim Bayly from Bayly Blog – Effeminacy: When the Church Denies a Sin is a Sin
Editor’s note: Bayly is back on his favorite vile hobby horse – masculinity and effeminacy. Yet he starts with ‘Lumberjack dykes’. Quoting Doug Wilson and doubling down on his nasty words that no pastor should be lobbing about. He has a photo of Lord Byron and Dennis Rodman to illustrate his point. I dare him to tell Rodman to his face that he’s ‘girly’. Sad, sick and illustrative of his own issues more than anyone elses.
The example Doug mentions of people being scandalized by what he’s written is a reference he made in the past to “lumberjack dykes.” Six or so weeks ago I used the expression “bull dykes” and got similar pushback from readers. Then yesterday, a pastor I respect told me he didn’t think a man I’d posted a picture of was “vain” in his appearance. My post was wrong, he thought…
We had a good conversation about it, so now I’m going to double down on my warning about vanity in men. What do all three of the objections to Doug’s and my posts have in common?
Each of them was a warning against sexual identities that are contrary to the man or woman God made us. The “lumberjack dyke” or “bull dyke” is manly in rebellion against the sex God made her. The preening peacock walking down the street is womanly in rebellion against the sex God made him
Why does it anger Christians for a pastor to point out such basic sins today?
The thing he’s shouting about is something that has been an issue and concern for many across the years. Here’s an example from almost a hundred years ago.
I’m guessing he’s never heard of the castrati singers of the 17th century either!
