I neither claim to be a prophet nor the son of a prophet. I must admit that I was completely unaware when I wrote my piece The Dones last week that Beth Moore would write an open letter five days later shaming men for holding to a biblical view of the role of pastor / teacher, lumping men who disagree with her “ministry” in with pigs who comment on her looks. Nor did I expect that Thabiti Anyabwile would respond on the same day with an apology to her for contributing to systemic misogyny.
Of course, as I pointed out in my previous piece, this is all interconnected. Don’t think for a second that this isn’t all part of the whole “privilege” narrative. If men can be made to publicly express shame for holding to biblical views on gender roles, perhaps white folks can be made to publicly express the same shame for the racist attitudes we all know they must harbor. If you are one of the sane onlookers to this insanity, how are you faring? Still hanging in there, or are you also done?
