I attended a small local community college. So, when some buffoon commented in class, "we should line up shoulder to shoulder on the (Indian) reservation and shoot everything that moves", word got around. The general consensus was that the knave should be strung up, then tarred and feathered.
Being Native American myself, of course I was aghast. Though, knowing the fellow personally, I wasn't surprised. As a regular contributor to the school newspaper, though, I took advantage of the school-wide outrage to make a bigger point.
"It's not the blatant racism that bothers me, it's the benevolent sort that I find so frustrating. Don't you realize, dear non-racist-friend, that when you think I am too foolish, weak-minded, or inept to fight my own battles - usually due, of course, to years of oppression, that you agree with the blatant racist: I am inferior to you."
It was a shocking realization for a number of my progressive friends.
I submit that the same argument is true of the egalitarian movement currently assaulting God's church.
Here's a sample from a recent blog post:
Would you want to become a Christian if you were told that your role in church would be limited, solely because of your gender?
That because of your gender, you would never be allowed to teach or to lead in any strategic way.That because of your gender, you would be expected to wait for others to initiate?
Would you want to become a parent, dear man, if you were told that your role as a parent would be limited, solely because of your gender?That because of your gender, you would never be allowed to give birth or breastfeed? For at least a year you wouldn't contribute to your child's nutritional intake in any meaningful way?
