Faith & Social Justice: In the spirit of Richard Overton and the 17th C. Levellers

Patterson vs. Parham on “Should Women Stay at Home?”

  News of the Weird:  Southern Baptists are still growing ever more cultlike and farther away from anything resembling mainstream Christianity–even mainstream EVANGELICAL Christianity.  The proof is in Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary’s new “homemaker” degree program. You can’t make this stuff up. Here is the debate on “Fox & Friends” (itself a strange world) between Dr. Paige Patterson, President of SWBTS, and Dr. Robert Parham, Executive Director of the independent Baptist Center for Ethics on “Should Women Stay at Home?” Two white males debating the role of women.  TOO weird for words.
