2 things I can't quite get my head around this week.
The first one is the fact that Sarah Palin the VP candidate for the republican party is welcomed by conservative Christians who hold to a complementarian stance on women's roles. They have argued that the bible only talks about women submitting to men in the house and the church and they cannot lead men there. However I find it ridiculous to think that the teaching that does not allow women to lead in the home or the church can then allow a woman to lead a nation! what's with that?
The second thing is more of a minor thing but it still slightly intrigues me. Does anyone think that being a firm pro-lifer and being a member of the National Rifle Association is even 5% hypocritical? Being a pro-lifer which indeed I am is the belief that abortion is wrong; the killing of a baby in the womb is wrong. Being a member of the NRA is the belief in the right to bear arms. The right to own a gun, a gun which is there for protection in the home, which in turn could be willingly used to kill someone; even in self defence. Is there not some way that this is also a right to kill a person? even if they are guilty of entering your home etc etc, you are still wanting to be in a club that believes that this is right. Just because the constitution says you have a right to bear arms doesn't mean that morally you do. I'm not saying whether it's right or wrong, I'm just wondering is there a slight hypocrisy going on.
