Someone Needs to Get Mr Naked Pastor a Bible

Because either Mr Naked Pastor doesn’t actually own a Bible or he hasn’t read it. Because the Bible mentions (and not just barely), and these are just off the top of my head, a number of important women who weren’t, in fact, ‘silenced’ or ‘erased’ or whatever his comic is attempting to wrongly imply.

Cf, for instance, Romans 16:1 where Phoebe the deaconess is named (or maybe Mr Naked just can’t read Greek) and Luke 8:1-3 where women followers and supporters are specifically mentioned.

If you need more, just consult Paul’s several letter greetings where men and women are mentioned- because men and women had important roles in the early Church.  This is historically indisputable.  Or take a look at Acts and the incredibly important role played by Priscilla and Aquila.  And numerous other instances of the important role of women.  Not to mention the Old Testament portrayal of Deborah or Jael or Jezebel or Huldah.  Etc.

Sure, it sounds fun when various people blather and bang on about how the New Testament marginalizes women.  I suppose they gain points for it in their echo chamber.  But anyone who knows anything about Scripture knows their complaints are utter rubbish.
