“Misogyny is a sin because God hates it, and He will judge those guilty of unrepentant continuance in this sin on the Last Day”

And last, it should be noted (yet again) that all moral claims require a moral foundation. Misogyny is a sin because God hates it, and He will judge those guilty of unrepentant continuance in this sin on the Last Day, along with those guilty of other sins against His Word. But if there is no God, or no judgment, or no fixed moral standards, then everything reduces to a matter of personal preference. And if you are an enraged Hindu, whose personal preference was to have received a larger dowry, Melynda has outlined for us what happens then. True relativistic multi-culturalism will have to swallow an awful lot. Open wide!

“the people pretending to be outraged are liars”

Yes, someone might say. But still. Why you have to use phrases like ‘lumberjack dykes’? It is provocative. Yes, it most certainly is. But the people pretending to be outraged are liars. I put certain things out there as bait, because I know they will take it, and when they take it I have yet another glorious opportunity to not care about their faux-outrage. Look. We just had one of the largest political demonstrations in American history, which consisted of tens of thousands of women in vagina hats. Christians who are concerned about the kind of provocative discourse you can read here — and their anxiety is not faux-anxiety because they have been conditioned too well — need to recognize that they are not living in the world that they think they are living in.

The Desert Island Test

Anything for Attention

Lady Gaga, Miley Cyrus, Dog Wilson

“Imagine Lady Gaga washed up on a desert island — how long do you think those outfits would last? Imagine Miley Cyrus washed up on a desert island — think she would be dancing up and down the beach with that foam finger? No. The whole point is to shock and insult those who don’t know that they are being played. Take that away and the whole game collapses.” —Douglas Wilson Continue reading

“Hello, I am here representing my father the devil, and I would like to share a false gospel with you.”

Some such attempts at twisting the message have had more success in deception than others, and of course none of them has been completely honest in the advertising. No one comes to the front door, hands you a tract, and says, ‘Hello, I am here representing my father the devil, and I would like to share a false gospel with you.’ Rather, these subversions of the gospel have regularly come in the name of Christ. ‘For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also transform themselves into ministers of righteousness, whose end will be according to their works’ (2 Cor. 11:14–15).

The CREC Presiding Ministers & the Malignant Pastor


“So if someone with a long enough face to be a dowager from Human Resources tells me that I am no longer permitted, as a cis-white-male, to make any observations or comparisons, metaphorical or otherwise, about any aspect of the female anatomy, guess what I am going to do? Guess what my next blog post is going to be about?” —Douglas Wilson Continue reading

“More on Speech”

More on Speech

Topic: Hamartiology

The apostle Paul took a dim view of dirty talk. In Colossians 3:8 he uses the word aischrologia to prohibit filthy communication. In our previous discussion of this (on Eph. 5:4), we noted that we need to take our directions on this from the robust apostles and not from the prim Victorians. Now where might the line be between speech that one or the other might prohibit? A simple rule that will deal with most of the issues would be this one: avoid all speech that is trying to be dirty in the way prohibited, speech that depends on and needs the shock effect.
