Move over Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
Found this link on Thatmom. And I agree with her. This is my kind of mom.
Dorothy Baker, Punches and Runs Over Man Who Threatened Her and Her Kids.
And why do I bring this up?
Because I am soooooooooo tired of the John Pipers and Mark Driscolls and Tim Challieses*** of the world who hold up their ridiculous ideals of womanhood as soft and weak. I get tired of these men who think women can't defend themselves and must always be defended by a man.
Well, what do you do if there is no man to defend you, and in fact, the one man in the whole story is the one threatening you and your children.
I guess you are just supposed to put tilt your head back, put the back of your hand to your forehead and say, "Woe is me. God made me a soft, weak, defenseless female. Therefore I must submit to the all-powerful male in every situation. After all, this is what my clueless, misogynic, neo-Calvinist preacher has taught me. He has declared unto me that this is God's intention, will, role, and purpose for my life. To deviate from it would be to sin against the essence of manhood and womanhood and by so doing, rebel against the Gospel. Did I say, 'Woe is me'?"
(Forgive the snark. Please understand that it is better for me to do this than to cuss clueless preachers out on what is supposed to be a Christian blog. But believe me, they deserve to be cussed out or snarked out when they teach the crap they do and call it the Word of God.)
(Tim Challies is author of the infamous "Soft, Effeminate Christianity" post I wrote against some time back.)
