Kinda spooky when you think about it...

Excerpt from Doug Wilson on Sarah Palin for V.P.:
"One more thing. An issue that will be discussed among some conservative Christians is the propriety of electing a woman. Evangelical Christians are overwhelmingly hostile to feminism, and so what is with that? I have argued before from Isaiah 3:12 -- "children are their oppressors, and women rule over them" -- that feminism is one of the things Scripture uses as an indicator of God's judgment on a culture. I still believe that, and also believe that we are in fact under this particular judgment in our culture. But as a biblical absolutist, and not a simple traditionalist, I also want to make room for the occasional Deborah. Life is funny, and you should remember that in the Bible Deborah was the dame who upstaged a fellow named Barak. Kinda spooky when you think about it."

It also creates a bit of a quandry for we complimentarians who firmly believe in voting Pro-Life, but who also have reservations about female authority, the roles of women, and the responsibility of young mothers. It will be interesting to see how or if votes are affected in the long term.
