What I am saying is that:
perpetuating a mindset where women are treated like property
where masculinity is equated with power and dominion
where jocularity and "radical" trappings are used to mask privilege and oppression
all of these things are the breeding grounds for the manner in which religion is far too often a co-conspirator in the domestic violence that is rampant in our world.
Rather than use our power to bully or sit silently or perpetuate violence, how Jesus-like would it be if men of faith worked to end violence and include women to their rightful place as 'full humans, emotional and rational, leading and being led, protecting and protected, gifted and limited".
Thank you Bob for this. I encourage everyone to go read the whole post.
