No tolerance for questions or critical inquiry

Posted by Hannah at 7:00 AM

Freedom for Christian Women Coalition having busy uploading the videos from their conference.  Its nice to be able to see these men and women in action, and able to watch the expression, body language that doesn't always come across as well in writing. 

I have problems with buffering at times with videos online.  Buffering in short means when the video stops and starts all the time, and it basically annoys me having to wait.  People will be getting me so excited, and BAM right in the middle their sentence I have to WAIT 10 million years for the video to finish loading to hear them finish!  Isn't that annoying?

On VIMEO they have uploaded entire segments of the program they put on, and they also mentioned this site has a section where you can download them.  Keep in mind that video downloads can be pretty large, and you may wish to burn it to a DVD or delete once you are done viewing.

Here is the link to the Freedom for Christian Women Coalition's entire video library, and descriptions.

Jocelyn Andersen, Author of her newest book Woman this is WAR! Gender, Slavery & the Evangelical Caste System did a presentation responding to the Danvers Statement of the Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood by offering their own set of "Rationales" and "Affirmations."

Responding to the Danvers Statement from FreeCWC on Vimeo.

I downloaded the entire thing to listen to, and you can view this after you download them in real player, quick time, or DIVX players.  All of those are free for download, and I would update the software completely so you get the smoothest play.

In this video she goes over some of the reasons for the demand for apology from CBMW.  If you wish to see that document again here is a link to her site on Woman Submit blog.

I personally don't expect a reaction from CBMW over the document, because they tend to ignore challenges like this all the time.  Healthy organizations will encourage dialog, and as you imagine the opposite is true of those that refuse.   

No tolerance for questions or critical inquiry.  This one will get you branded "rebellious".

Unreasonable fear about the outside world, such as impending catastrophe, evil conspiracies and persecutions.
Feminism! Individuality! Decaying western society! Government! Public Schools! Television! Hollywood! Rock music! Processed food! Doctors! Lukewarm Christians! Did I mention feminism? This is a movement NURTURED on paranoia with a persecution complex that's the stuff of legend.
 The reactions so far that I have seen that try to 'support' the Danver's statement once the Demand for the Apology went out?  The above was the reactions.  They were rebellious, and just a group of feminist trouble makers.  If you read their responses?  They never stepped foot towards addressing any of the concerns.  Can we say RED FLAG?  I showed an example in my article about divert!  Divert!  DIVERT!
(By the way, Commandments of men has a complete list of these quotes, and other characteristics of unhealthy organizations!)

The group/leader is the exclusive means of knowing "truth" or receiving validation, no other process of discovery is really acceptable or credible.

The author that rebuked Shirley Taylor loves to divert (and never tries to address any concerns) is telling when you look at his last statement about knowing the 'truth':

Taylor wonders who will speak up for women. I’m thankful the council speaks up for God. Does not the Potter have a right over the clay?

 Its quite telling isn't it? HIS leaders speak up for God.  Her concerns are not credible.
