Whoa.. what is that title? Such blasphemy.. Such insolence. Okay slow down, I know some people will look at the title as some sort of oxymoron but I don’t think it is. Why don’t we break it down a little.
Feminism.. what is feminism? Well firstly, it’s not a dirty word. For all those PC people out there, call it egalitarianism, but I’m sure you’ve noticed I’m anything but PC.
Feminism to me is about equality. That’s it. We live on a continent where rape is used as a method of war. Rebels will raid a village and perform mass rape just in an effort to disrupt their oppositions tactics. It’s disgusting.
Barack Obama becoming president did not stop 1,134 black males from being shot, just like Hilary Clinton running for President isn’t stopping rape culture and the child bride tradition Christianity relates to loving people and helping them realise that Jesus is the way forward.
So what does Jesus say about feminism and equality? Well..
21 So the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and he slept; then He took one of his ribs and closed up the flesh at that place. 22 The LORD God fashioned into a woman the rib which He had taken from the man, and brought her to the man.
His rib. HIS RIB.
I don’t think feminism is unchristian. Yes, there are some forms of feminism which, due to my relationship with Christ, I cannot condone. Wives are to submit to their husbands. What does that have to do with nine year olds being married off to old men as soon as they hit puberty?
WE ARE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER.
