I wonder if a culturally relevant, edgy Christian feminist magazine (suitable for men and women) is what our previous complementarian conservative evangelical pastor had in mind when he gave David a “word” that he’d be in publishing someday. ;)
Cuz it just occurred to me how FANTASTIC such a ‘zine could be.

    brilliant! i would read it. hell, i would write for it!

  3. Mak — June 25, 2007 #

    oh I would insist on it myste.

    taking everything we ever heard in complimentarianism and addressing it from an egalitarian/feminist perspective would give us enough fodder for a couple years at least. hehe

    Oh, would it be so!!!

  5. dave — June 26, 2007 #

    This would be awesome… can I write for it too?

    And Mak… I am sure that we would hear new things in the next few year from the complimentarianism/fundamentalism camp that will us new fodder after the first couple of years!

    aint that the truth Dave.

    of course you can write for it - - anyone can, since it’s in my imagination I can edit it however I want and no one would know…oooo…. ;)

    I just found your blog and I LOVE it!

    A Christian feminist zine sounds PERFECT! I would totally buy it - and display it prominently at my house for friends who think that they two are mutally exclusive to see!

    Oh, and TAG!

    That would be great!! Don’t tell my dad though a man who believes the feminist movement is responsible for all the ills of our society…blah, blah. I usually tune him out at this point:)

  13. Mak — June 26, 2007 #

    hehe…my parents are a bit more on the “conservative” end WRT feminism as well

  14. Paul — June 26, 2007 #

    does that mean you can’t be a feminist and complimentarian? ;)

  15. Mak — June 26, 2007 #

    hmmmm…good question. I don’t know any but I suppose, in theory, it would be possible.

  16. Erin — June 26, 2007 #

    Paul - when you figure that out will you write about it? ;-)

  17. Paul — June 27, 2007 #
