So I was surfing Amazon following links from my LibraryThing Feminist SF group
and somehow came across this book. Evangelical Feminism: A New Path to Liberalism?
by Wayne Grudem. I'm sure (or at least I hope) Grudem gives thought out arguments about why he believes egalitarianism is wrong (I doubt I will ever know since I don't plan on reading his book, I gave up on him and Crossway a long time ago), but the whole title made me laugh. I kinda expected more from him. The scare tactic of equating two fearmongering words for evangelicals (feminism and liberal) is just too much. But of course it also makes use of the trendy media usage of the question mark. As Jon Stewart so aptly pointed out, anyone can make any sort of defaming claim as long as its followed by a question mark. But as a liberal and feminist (and post-evangelical) I guess I'm the evil they are warning against. I've already taken that path, so how is it possible to be "led astray" again? Anyway, I was amused briefly and I thought I'd share.
