A very short post today. This popped up on my Facebook the other day in response to The Transformed Wife Lori Alexander’s complaining over the Gillette ad we’ve talked about several times now. From one Vaughn Ohlman, the author of that silly courtship book ‘What Are You Doing?’, blog filled with bad marriage advice and attempted marry them off seminar. He is reacting to the Gillette ad now with this:
How is this even slightly socially acceptable? Hitting the wife? Killing an intruder? Violence is wrong. Self defense violence has no place being glorified, even if it has a place. This seems to be a feature, not a bug in the more conservative versions of Christianity, this love of violence as manly.
He is openly excusing domestic violence and spousal abuse as an acceptable exchange for protection. Vaughn minimizes the violence to support another type of violence. Intimate partner violence is never acceptable. It cannot lead anywhere positive.
But it makes me wonder about Vaughn’s intimate relationships and the possible levels of violence.
