Wild Game Event! The brochure proclaimed. The only person I could think of who loves killing large wild animals is Dr. Paige Patterson, president of the Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth. And, sure enough, there he was in his splendored glory ready for the hunt. They sent me an email inviting me to this male-bonding party.
They don’t know who they are talking to! They invited me to be a vendor and set up a free booth. I’ve been waiting for a chance to speak to them. This might be it. If I put on my camouflage overalls, I would fit right in. Dr. Patterson is from Texas so he would know what a Snipe hunt is. So I will invite them all to my Snipe hunt.
My booth would look like this:
Bagging Male Headship Snipe Hunt
with Shirley Taylor
Free toe sacks! (burlap bags)
Keep all you catch!
Scripture candles to light the way!
Trophies for the biggest lie – er, ah, Snipe!
“Dethroning Male Headship – because it doesn’t have a leg to stand on.”
“Husbands Handy Reference Guide When a Wife Doesn’t Have to Submit.”
“Demand for An Apology from the Council on Biblical Manhood and Biblical Womanhood.”
Paige Patterson preached in January 2010 at a local church and decried the “feminization of the church.” I guess this is his answer to keeping the churches pure. Of course it could be said that he shot his big gun at women when his seminary adopted the Danvers Statement on Biblical Manhood and Biblical Womanhood in October 2009.
