Ho hum, Doug Wilson of Blog and Mablog decided in his usual tone-deaf out of step way to poke badgers with spoons, and speak on how awesomely Biblical sexism is at one of his local colleges up in Idaho. First, I’d like to see him try to float this detritus at a bigger university in a more populated area where I suspect someone smarter would hand him his derriere in an intellectual way. Second, this is a new low, even for Doug, marry-er of child molesters and lover of slavery.
Doug has been happily martrybating since it happened over the fact that some showed up to protest both at the university and online.
I’m not going to quote this entire rancid thing, you have to go to Doug’s blog if you want to read the full transcription of his bloviating word salad, but here is the highlight. He is talking of the Bible here:
“But it is a sexist book in some of the following ways. For example, wives are required to be submissive to their own husbands (Eph. 5:22). For another, women are not permitted to participate in the rule of the church—women are excluded from the pastoral office (1 Tim. 2:12). And for a third example, women are barred from combat roles in the military (Dt. 22:5).
So, if it is sexist to grant headship to the husband in marriage, and to limit leadership in the church to qualified males, and to keep women out of combat roles in the military, then we can all agree there as well. The Bible is sexist, at least by that standard.
So according to the standards of modern secularism, conservative Christians who accept the scriptural teaching on such things must be thought to share in the sexism.”
..and here as Doug decides to randomly take pot shots at Shakira and JLo for the Super Bowl without it linking to much else in his speech. Gotta pretend to stay relevant with hastily shoe horned in references to pop culture:
“But by the same token, there are things that you might applaud that I would think appalling. For a recent example, let us take the half time show at the Super Bowl, which some of you might consider “empowering for women,” but which I would consider a skankfest. You might think women are being elevated by an activity that I would regard as degrading. Even though you can shinny up it, a stripper pole is not the way of promotion for women.”
At least it wasn’t as silly and degrading as his romance novel “The Man in the Dark.”
