Ah, the memories . . .

"The Christ Church Debate"

On July 14, 2006, KRFP (a community radio station in Moscow, Idaho) broadcast a two-and-a-half-hour debate between Doug Wilson, Pastor of Christ Church, and Keely Emerine-Mix, a local concerned citizen with a strong theological background.  The debate centered around Christ Church and its impact on the local community of Moscow.


Seeya 'round town, Moscow, because . . .

Like any spouse, she should not go bowling Friday night with her Hell's Angels buds if her husband has indicated that he's uncomfortable with it. As is the case with all of us, she risks a ticket if she goes 55 in a 35 mph zone, and jail if she does so while drunk. And simple decency suggests that if your neighbor asks you to water their philodendrons during a two-week vacation, the Christian woman should not agree to do it and then not do so or, worse, pour only marinara sauce on the houseplants, killing them.
> But these are not examples of "obedience," and not what he means when he snipes out instructions just for women. The admonition to adorn herself in obedience is simply Wilson's tired and utterly un-Biblical attempt to strip women, all women, "his" women especially, of agency, volition, personal power, and ultimately liberation. The New Testament Gospel doesn't allow for that, but fealty to the Gospel has never been a big concern to him, as evidenced by his many un-Biblical statements and beliefs.
