Christians Fearing Women
Williams warned of Church anarchy
Ah, yes-those secondary-citizens, those pieces of barter, those created-for-mankind's pleasure. Those women. It strikes me straight off that their supposedly omnipotent god is apparently powerless to protect his own church against these demons of the deep.
Therefore, around 2000 evangelical ministers have started whingeing to the Archbishop of Canterbury to protect the church from females.And gays getting married.
Oh, and probably a hundred other things all neatly parcelled under the auspice of liberal .
This seems to have becaome a swearword since I was young.Liberal used to mean enlightened and educated.
Or does it still mean those things, and have we largely developed a fear of them?
For we only ask for protection against that which we fear.
Perhaps this Cretan Preistess is an example of what it is they fear. Women leading their own praise and worship, maybe even brandishing snakes. Oh My.
Additionally, traditionalist Anglo-Catholics who oppose female ordination are threatening similar action if they are not provided with sufficient protection when women are consecrated as bishops.
