Say Bill I've been studying some of that theological submission stuff that Phillip Jensen teaches..."The consistent accusation levelled against the Christian understanding (but Bill...I think he means Sydney Anglican understanding...cause everyone else does) is that it leads to oppression and worse—domestic violence. To heighten this argument, details of dreadful abuse are given about husbands who use the wedding vows about submission to claim the right to be violent, abusive, controlling and domineering.The secularist worldview, based in individualism, power and rights, analyses the cause of this abuse in terms of giving power and authority to the husband and therefore rejects the whole notion of submission. The Christian worldview analyses this abuse in terms of the profound sinfulness of the human heart and therefore rejects the behaviour of such husbands as expressions of a wicked and evil nature in need of repentance and regeneration."
So Ennis ...are we like them wife beaters ...or are we in need of repentance and regeneration for being gay?
Don't ask me Jake...It's all too Freudian for me! I just think Sydney Anglicans are stark raving mad
