Let the dominoes fall

So Dr Paige Patterson got fired. But those who fired him knew all this time how he felt about women. It is right there in The Danvers Statement of the Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood and it is right there in the Baptist Faith and Message 2000. It is right there for all to see.

They know it. They also agree with it.

They have not denounced either one of those statements and they will not. Paige is just the fall boy. Patterson is old, involved in another lawsuit about homosexuality assault (along with the Southern Baptist Convention and Houston First Baptist Church).

So, what is it going to take to change their minds about women’s equality? The secular world led this charge and they got rid of Paige.

But wait! There are others who need to be called to account. John Piper, Bruce Ware, Wayne Grudem, and Denny Burk all need to apologize for the damage they have done and continue to do against women.

If your church denies women doing any of these things: take up the offering, pass out attendance pads, hand out bulletins, read scripture out loud in church, teach men in Sunday School, be a deacon (oh, my soul, what blasphemy!) preach (oh, I am about to faint – can’t have women preachers), speak up. One giant has toppled, Give a push – push the others out your way – and claim your equality.
