Nasty as it may sound, it is exactly how I as a female feel. 


Very good point, Angel.  If one changed the word rape to "unnecessarily killed by a cop" I'd feel the exact same way as you desribe in your point.

Of course it's typical...

 

Look at the dozens of pastors every year that we learn of who are involved in sexual improprieties and are "forgiven" - remember only ten percent at the most ever become public knowledge - "wouldn't want to damage the image of the church and it's individual members by letting people know about it"...

Just like domestic abuse and incest crimes like that of Toby Willis - there's tremendous pressure to keep it secret...

      Yes, they are typical - but not often said in public or published.    This week I received a request for money from Pence et all - the Faith and Freedom fundamentalists...  It is straight our of whack-a-mole country.   

      If only the folks believing the nonsense would get their heads out of the sand and realize that if they are not wealthy, they are being harmed by the current folks running the WH.      

     

     These evangelicals came into being in the 30's for one reason only:  POWER.     Fundy followers are to blind to comprehend that very fact.

Trump should hire him - he'd be a good and thoroughly sanctimonious partner in crime for Sarah-the-liar Sanders and fit in comfortably with the rest of the lying hypocrites who support trump...

Prominent Southern Baptist leader removed as seminary president following controversial remarks about abused women

 

FORT WORTH — Prominent Southern Baptist leader Paige Patterson was removed from his job as president of Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary amid an evangelical #MeToo moment: a massive backlash from women upset over comments he made in the past that are being newly perceived as sexist and demeaning.

 

Seminary leaders were unspecific about why they made the dramatic move, issuing a statement that didn’t mention the controversial comments and saying they were moving “in the direction of new leadership” due to challenges related to “enrollment, financial, leadership and institutional identity.”

 

The brief statement released early Wednesday said Patterson will be president emeritus, “for the benefit of the future mission of the Seminary.” He will receive compensation and may live on campus as “theologian-in-residence” at a brand new Baptist Heritage Center, the statement said.

 

After 13 hours of closed-door sessions, the seminary’s trustees appointed D. Jeffrey Bingham, the seminary’s dean of the school of theology, as interim president. Bingham has worked for numerous evangelical institutions, including Criswell College, Dallas Theological Seminary and Wheaton College.

 

The seminary board’s decision, announced by its chairman, Kevin Ueckert, is likely to come as a relief to the thousands of women who had called for Patterson’s removal, said Karen Swallow Prior, an English professor at Liberty University who attends a Southern Baptist church.

 

“Misogyny and disrespecting women has nothing to do with scriptural teaching,” Prior said.  (BRAVO!!!)

 

A quorum of about 30 male trustees and three female trustees of the 1,200-student Texas seminary were present for a meeting that began Tuesday afternoon to discuss the fate of Patterson, a past president of the Southern Baptist Convention who has been revered as a giant for standing guard for decades against liberalizing changes.

 

In recent weeks, Patterson, 75,  has come under fire for taped comments he made between 2000 and 2014 about women, including those remarking on a teenage girl’s figure and saying female seminarians need to work harder to look attractive. He also said women who are abused almost always should stay with their husbands. After thousands of Southern Baptist women signed a petition calling for the seminary’s board of trustees to oust him from his position, he apologized for making comments about the teenager, but he did not apologize for his comments about abused women. The comments had resurfaced on a blog this year.
