Complementarians trying to defeat feminism through compromise...

This from Baylyblog correspondent, Fr. Bill Mouser:

I am encouraged by a recent expansion of from where ever it is headquartered (California?) to include new centers of guerrilla journalism in Texas and London. The head of their London outfit is a fellow named James Dillingpole whose work I always enjoyed and took courage from when he was writing columns for The Telegraph.

What I want to share with you is his explanation for taking the headship of the Breitbart news organization in London.I encourage you to read it...

What caught my attention as I read it is this: Dillingpole has a very clear understanding of the “spirit” of the leftist, statist, collectivist, feminist, eco-fascists that pretty much have free run of the place, no matter where your place is (unless you live in an impossibly irrelevant backwater somewhere). His parable about dog (you-know-what) and yogurt is hilarious, and though he never precisely mentions the contention between Biblical patriarchy and feminism, what he describes in the parable fits the dynamics of that contest to a tee. Or, so it seems to me.

This reminds me of the Complementarian leader who recently denied patriarchy was a biblical word (so he wasn't going to defend it) but then proceeded to argue that we must defend headship. I asked him if he was going to forgo the use of the word Trinity, since that wasn't a biblical word, either.


Loved that response, Kamilla! One wonders why such a leader would be a leader in a movement coined by a term not found in the Bible. One would wonder...just wonder, though.

Well, of course Craig! But I'd already done that one with him ;-) he didn't care for that either.

In fact, after sending me an early draft of one chapter in his new book, he apparently became so miffed at my (genuinely mildly critical) suggestions, I didn't even rate a review copy when the book came out. Sigh.
