Thanks for the link. I look forward to listening to it!

Carolyn, found your site via Mary Kassian. Thanks for the link to this sermon. Excellent.
I also have a blog dedicated to encouraging women to choose the path of biblical womanhood - Off the Beaten Path. I hope you'll check it out and even consider being a follower. In fact, I've linked you on my blog. Like Mary says, I'm adding my voice to the echo chamber for biblical womanhood.

Blessings to you and your ministry. I'll continue to follow your blog. I'd love to communicate with you more.

Thank you for posting this link. After that weekend, I have been praising God for opening my eyes to begin to see what it looks like to be a servant of God in our society. 1 Corinthians 13 has also been an anchor for me in my spiritual journey.

Love and grace to you,

Go, Wonder Woman! This stuff really bothers me... and there is way too much assuming going on in Dr. Moore's talk.

Whether you are looking at male superheroes or female superheroes, you are looking at a fantastic idealization and it matters very much that we know how to distinguish between fantasy & reality.

But Wonder Woman is a great superhero counterpart to Superman and the MANY male superheroes. If Dr. Moore wants to start critiquing the pagan influences in those stories and the often demeaning and disrespectful attitudes toward women they include, then I'll start taking him seriously on Wonder Woman and how she is a feminist plot to make men weak and submissive to dominant women. For now, he's just another Christian man who can't stand the thought of a woman - even in fantasy - being both capable and curvy while he's not bothered in the least by a man being portrayed as super-strong and sexy.

I enjoy Superhero stories / movies, whether the main character is male or female. I can understand and celebrate the need for contrast between the hero and the rest of the characters without seeing male heroes as automatically demeaning women or female heroes as automatically demeaning men. Seriously!

Why do so many conservative Christians think that the only way for any man to look strong is for all women to look weak? There is far too much to do in this world for one of us (male or female) to always make dominating the other to be our main focus. Let's team up and work together for the glory of God. We all have strengths and weaknesses - areas where we can cheer each other on and protect each other. So, let's be about what is really important (not obsessing about Wonder Woman).
