…and might offend the pants off others. Either way, some might remember this book circulating in Mennonite Brethren circles a few years ago:
I originally read it and wrote a soft-spoken response that I submitted to the elder board of my MB church, back in 2005. My paper was promptly tossed in the trash and I was thanked and then ignored. Now that the whole issue is over and the Canadian MB conference is subtley pushing an Egalitarian agenda (which we, on paper, don’t actually hold), I’ve re-read Adren Thiessen’s A Biblical Case For Equality and have posted the review on Amazon.ca and Amazon.com. I’m sure that some people will only see this as me being rebellious and argumentative (against who or what I haven’t a clue), but I’ve given up trying to convince some people that I’m not Voldemort.
If you had that book recommended to you in the past and couldn’t put your thumb on why that book didn’t sit right with you, you may find my review somewhat interesting. If you love the book, I’d welcome some public interaction on Amazon.com or here. Feel free to express your appreciation or distaste for my review; both are always welcome.
Also, I wouldn’t mind a little prayer for my insomnia if you remember; I’ve been sleeping around 4 hours a night coming on a month now.
Until Next Time,

P.S. – Is it just me, or is an image of the cross being turned into a swing set just utterly offensive?
Well, maybe it’s supposed to be an image of some sort of “Christian scales of justice” – both men and women are equal…though on a rigid wooden scale, everything is equal right?
I wonder why the bushes behind the church are exploding?
