On edit: If you type in Blog & Mablog on Google search, you'll find it-- definitely a MUST-SEE

They are 100% serious! They have articles about how women should submit to their men-- and of course women don't like sex, but they must do it out of love for their men-- "Women are made to spread and receive"--oh boy, it just goes on and on and on. . . . Gays, Women, you name it, they hate it.

5. Here's Fred Clark ('Slacktivist') on Douglas Wilson, the writer of the blog:
For evangelicals, racism isn’t a dealbreaker, but feminism is
Remember our old friend Douglas Wilson? He writes and speaks for the patriarchal neo-Calvinist “Gospel Coalition,” and is the author of many books sold at Christian bookstores across the country — including the large LifeWay chain.
Wilson caused a stir earlier this year when his description of godly marital sex was, well, horrifically rapey. Wilson wrote:
However we try, the sexual act cannot be made into an egalitarian pleasuring party. A man penetrates, conquers, colonizes, plants. A woman receives, surrenders, accepts.
That prompted many of us to take a closer look at this guy and to wonder how it was that he had come to be a respected voice in American evangelicalism. We wondered this even more when we learned that Wilson isn’t only a proponent of rape culture, but also an apologist for slavery.
LifeWay, to their very slight credit, at least doesn’t carry the book the Douglas Wilson co-wrote with white supremacist and League of the South co-founder Steve Wilkins, Southern Slavery As It Was. Yet the fact that Wilson co-wrote a book with a white supremacist, and that this book argues that slavery was not really all that bad, apparently does not affect LifeWay’s thoughts about carrying other books by the same guy.
(Fred is a pro-choice, pro-LGBT, pro-Democrat Christian who I find is the best guide to the loons and bigots that make up the RW of Christianity. The loons he can forgive, the bigots he has a harder time with.)
