A good reason why women should not be "in" theology.

Abominable. Any person who can so snidely and wickedly weigh in against the "problems" of making abortion illegal does not deserve to bear the title of "theologian". These women are a disgrace to the cause of theology, and they further my already conclusive thesis that women have no business teaching the subject.

Jim West was correct to compare the abortion movement to the "Holocaust". Much worse yet than holocaust, abortion signifies sinning against little ones, an evil which stands so far above any act of genocide in its inherent repugnance, that the scriptures reserve no mercy for those nations which are guilty of it. Not even Judah, after all of its heartfelt repentance, escaped God's fierce and agonous wrath for the crimes of Manasseh in sacrificing children in the fire.

I can already predict that the only reaction this blog will get out of people is against its "chauvinist" bent. Oh what a damnable society we live in! We get all out of sorts when grown women aren't given their due in one sector of the academic realm, but can hardly bat an eye at the millions and millions and millions of babies that have been liquified by saline products under the "troubled" consent of their depraved and irresponsible mothers. What the hell is wrong with you? I can hardly contain my rage at your dull and wretched liberalism.

Women or men or anyone who support abortion, who even consider the matter a topic for debate....I hold them in as much esteem as the most foul and disgusting Nazi. Our country is no better than the third reich.

My mind can wander....

So I was listening to a feminist babble the other day, and suddenly my troubled mind became soothed by the formation of a beautiful series of images. To be sure, we do not live in a perfect world, but I can always dream....

Schopenhauer: Timely remarks on women.

Women are directly adapted to act as the nurses and educators of our early childhood, for the simple reason that they themselves are childish, foolish, and short-sighted- in a word, are big children all their lives, something intermediate between the child and the man, who is a man in the strict sense of the word.

Thoughts to ponder! If a writer said these things today he would be lynched, thrown out of the university and forbidden to speak in public. This is because our feckless and brutish society can only handle free thinking as long as freedom is in slavery to egalitarianism. Stupid feminists.

A verse to have in view whenever a feminist opens her mouth.

"Do not spend your strength on women, your vigor on those who ruin kings." (Pr.31:3)

Wise words from King Lemuel's mother. And if kings profit well from this wisdom, I imagine scholars of today would do well to heed the lesson.

Quote of the century.

"As I heard N.T. Wright's preface to the Epistle to the Romans being read, my heart felt strangely pissed...." -Marc Regier

Anabaptist Hermeneutical Hypocrisy.

Ever notice how most anabaptists today have jumped into bed with the modern feminist agenda? Menno Simons would be horrified. I as his dutiful student am too.

You will often note how an anabaptist will solemnly refer to the case of Deborah in the Old Testament as a sacred precedent for women holding positions of leadership in the Body of Christ, but will completely ignore what Deborah proceeded to do with her authority. They ignore this other textual material because Deborah leads Israel into war, and calls down curses on the tribes that refuse to participate in the bloodshed.

The fact that the Old Testament records a woman holding leadership is sacred, the fact that said woman led people into divine warfare is profane. This choosiness not only serves the Anabaptists purpose to support the modern egalitarian construct by appeal to the authority of the Bible, but simultaneously enables the anabaptist to shut off biblical authority when said authority conflicts with her secular ideology of pacifism. In short, the Bible for an anabaptist is like a water faucet that can be turned on and off at her own whim. For such hermeneutical hypocrisy she proves that her whole system is entirely flawed and corrupt from the ground up.

1 Timothy 2:13: Further exegetical remarks.

"I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over man; she must be silent." (1 Tim.2:13)

It is my personal opinion that this decree of God should not merely be limited to the sphere of the bishopric. It involves any formal office that holds the teaching of the Word in the forefront. The complementarians are just as guilty of eisegesis here as the heretical feminists.

Allowing the text to speak for itself, I suggest that it forbids women any teaching ministry over other men. As such they cannot become theologians, they cannot become professors in biblical studies, they cannot publish articles in biblical or theological journals, and they cannot write books. All such things presuppose that a woman is free to break silence in the things of God and begin to teach man....which is wrong.

Fitting words from Joseph Fitzmyer.

"I do not think that the NPP has moved Pauline studies forward in any sense. It is simply an unconvincing aspect of Pauline interpretation that has attracted some students."

Context blows sometimes. People think it is the cat's meow of biblical studies. It isn't. Sometimes it is crucial to hear a biblical verse entirely on its own, entirely apart from everything that was said before and afterwords. To ignore the historical and the grammatical, the mystical and the narrative...and by gosh to ignore what the author was intending, to simply listen to the verse, acknowledging that it is the ineffable Word of God.
