The ‘Gospel’ Coalition? Maybe They Should Call Themselves the ‘Haunt of the Reprobate Rapist’

I wasn’t aware of the topic of a recent post on something called the ‘Gospel Coalition’ website until a couple of twitter people mentioned it. The subject of the post is what I can only characterize as the demonstration of the mentality of a rapist. J.D.R. Kirk handles it well enough and rebuts and rebukes sufficiently that I’ll just send you along to him. He opens

There’s been quite the brouhaha over the piece published last week by the Gospel Coalition. The post pines for the good ol’ days, when men were men and women were women (and therefore subject to all the whims of men’s desires) especially in the arena of sex.

It cites the following from Douglas Wilson: In other words, 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. This is of course offensive to all egalitarians, and so our culture has rebelled against the concept of authority and submission in marriage.

I’m not kidding.

Mr Wilson understands neither Christianity nor the Scriptures.  The ‘Gospel’ Coalition indeed.

One Response to The ‘Gospel’ Coalition? Maybe They Should Call Themselves the ‘Haunt of the Reprobate Rapist’

  1. I really disagree with Kirk’s take on this, and believe that there are a number of very important issues at stake in the manner in which this brouhaha has been handled. While I do not agree with Wilson’s position, I believe that he has been seriously misrepresented. I posted the first part of a discussion of the debate here.
