Today has been the day of un-writable blog posts.
I wanted to write about the various links on Thinking Anglicans (here and here) about the escalation of the rhetoric of abuse against gay people in Nigeria, but I find I am lost for words at the inhumanity of what is being done in Christ’s name. (Notice the suggestion that we should indoctrinate fear and hatred, and take action to rid the world of (and I quote) ‘homos’.)
So, I went browsing to distract myself, and followed a link from a blog I know to a blog I don’t know, to a blog that person recommended, where I found this post arguing that a male pastor should never speak in private to a woman. You will need to read the first half of the comments too. The paranoia, the objectifying of women, and the easy assumption that we cannot control our actions (except by excluding the one we’re afraid of) again leaves me speechless.
So there you have it. You can go read about the things that make me too angry to speak, and perhaps find words where I have failed.
