A Good Defrocking is What They All Need

Cheryl Lindsay Seelhoff at Women’s Space/the Margins blog has a wonderful article outlining the abuses of the ultra-right wing conservative patriarchy movement (and she should know!). There’s also interesting news about the hushed up defrocking of R. C. Sproul, Jr. at his church. Since it didn’t make national news, I’m bringing it to your attention. These men need to be exposed for the hyprocrites they are before they do more damage. I’m not judging them further than they already have been. Godde’s the ultimate judge, but I think everyone needs to know and beware of the rampant sin inherent in fundamentalism and behind the present political regime.

Fundie Folks, wake up!!! This stuff happens every day in your own fundamentalist families! This driving need for absolute control in the family and in church breeds repression, anger, and abuse of all kinds. It’s not normal! Religious fundamentalism needs to be rooted out and exposed for the cancer that it is.

  1. Howdy. Found your blog via tag surfing.

    The whole story with R.C. Sproul Jr. is pretty crazy, and there are plenty of people who think patriarchalism is a perversion of Biblical practice (myself included). Glad to find someone outside of his circle taking notice.

  2. Kellen, it is pretty crazy really and I hate to think what it’s doing to perfectly fine men who try to live a good Christian life. My husband, bless his heart, told me up front that he couldn’t be what our fundamentalist pastor and pals were telling him he should be. I thanked him for his honesty and I swore to quit pushing it (I was so indoctrinated then!) Well, his honesty saved our marriage! Thanks for the post!! 🙂
