    woohaa…yeah, some good reading.

    I’m not familiar with the terminology, it’s obviously American, but I managed to figure out the sorts of theologies they were talking about.

    I agree that complementarian theology (if that’s what it’s called) generally isn’t a problem in practice, I’ve seen this in the lives of my own friends. But that doesn’t make the theology ok – as a poster over on Makeesha’s blog points out, that attitude assumes that the marriage is a healthy one. What happens when it’s not? Our theology does inform our practice, and oppressive theologies can lead to oppressive practice.

    I have to say I haven’t studied Paul’s writings in depth for a long time, but I did back in first year uni, and I satisfied myself then that the “man is the head of woman” (complementarianism) was a load of rubbish. It’s a little bit hard to engage much further than this without going back and re-doing that reading, which I probably should do at some point anyway!
