Sarah Moon writes here about complementarianism’s ‘ugly relationship with rape.’ She poses two questions of us bad people, and they are as follows — first, how do we define rape? And secondly, what do we propose to do about it?
Okay. I would define rape as having any kind of sexual relationship with someone apart from or against her or his consent. So far, so good, probably, but she then objects to our recognition of the possibility of varying degrees of foolishness on the part of the victim, and she interprets this recognition as somehow meaning ‘when they say they are against rape they don’t mean all rape.’

Gary Greenfield resigned his household’s membership from the Kirk, telling Doug Wilson directly to his face: “You are a cult leader.” Since then he has learned the hard way that Mr. Wilson does not appreciate such candor. Continue reading
Douglas Wilson did not tell the complete truth; he omitted salient facts. Continue reading
When you strip away all the blame-shifting, restatements, contradictions, obfuscations, and misleading rhetoric from Doug Wilson’s nonsense, one point stands out: He resolved to protect Jamin Wight from paying the lawful penalty for Lewd Conduct With Minor Child Under Sixteen & Sexual Abuse of a Child Under the Age of Sixteen Years. Continue reading
Wordsmith Doug Wilson declared Jamin Wight guilty of a crime that does not exist and he defended Jamin Wight against a criminal accusation that the state never charged because it too does not exist. Continue reading

As someone who’s experienced terrible abuse in life, it’s my opinion — and certainly not mine alone — that this man should not be lay counseling anyone, especially abuse survivors, nor should he be waxing philosophical on laws related to abuse. Why not? Among many reasons, because he’s shown himself to be incapable of truly deferring to or submitting to those (lawmakers, therapists, research psychologists, etc.) who have more knowledge or expertise than he does in this area.
Until recently, it seems to me that his condition has been one of veiled megalomania. Well, that veil seems to be finally lifting for many people (and not fast enough in my opinion).
To his church body, please hear this: without intervention, his condition, like a cancer, will absolutely ravage the body. It is destructive and it is terminal. There can be no other end.

“we have access to the love letters/journals that you wrote that the court reviewed and then sealed . . . . those documents contain highly intimate and potentially embarrassing facts or statements, the publication of which would be highly objectionable to reasonable persons.” — Douglas Wilson Continue reading
Doug Wilson will say one thing for the record to the court in defense of a child abuser, and he will say the complete opposite in public to create a false impression about his true convictions. Continue reading
When the bad guys have pushed that kind of thing sufficiently, they will then take the next step. In fact, their agenda is far enough along that they have already been taking it. What’s with that tired old category consensual? The first place that this comes under assault is with age of consent laws. Those laws presuppose the old order of Christendom, and a childhood protected from sexual predations was a cultural artifact of the Christian gospel. I thank God for it. The apostles of Progress are trying to dismantle the entire thing, and I really don’t think we should be helping them in any way.
