Episode 132: Complementarianism is Heresy

Episode 132 finds your favorite podcasters joined by the one and only, J Dana Trent. The group talk about JDT’s letter to Beth Moore that was published in Religion Dispatches. JDT challenges Moore’s departure from the Southern Baptist Convention and her ending her relationship with Lifeway Publishing. JDT is herself a Southern Baptist clergy person, author, and educator. In her letter, JDT calls out Beth Moore for her apology for promoting complementarianism as reeking of complementarianism. What’s complementarianism? Complementarianism is the erroneous belief that men and women have different complementary roles and responsibilities in marriage, family life, and religious leadership. Not surprisingly, men have the headship roles while women have support roles. If you want to skip our opening mishigas start listening at the 22:50 mark. However, you’ll miss some great 4/20 humor. We also recommend that you check out JDT’s article in Christian Century entitled “Drop.”
