and we’ve found a stoner
A challenge was set by Ain’t No Shrinking Violet to find a Christian with views more vile than the man who wanted to treat his woman like a cow/sex toy. Personally, I thought this would be hard to beat. However, the inimitable Clare Flourish has come up with a possible challenger in her conversation with Holly T. Ashley:
Stoning? Personally- Oh absolutely! Do I wish we would bring stoning back – as barbaric as it seems- it would most certainly put an end to foolish crimes. I do wish that we would impose the death Penalty- quickly and bring back corporal punishment to the classroom- but then again, if we would not “spare the rod” at home, then corporal punishment in the school would not be necessary.
John Zande will be delighted to finally find a real live Christian who can answer YES with such enthusiasm to his stoning question.
At the end of the day, for someone who wants to glue herself so closely to the rules of the Bible, Holly is taking a big risk publishing her beliefs on the internet or speaking on the radio. After all, a passing male might read it of hear her and have the sinful experience of being ‘taught’ by a mere woman.
I do not allow a woman to teach or exercise authority over a man, but to remain quiet. (Timothy 2:12)
