I heard an interesting discussion today by the author of a book called Jesus and John Wayne. She believes that Evengelical christians Are theologically illiterate. They have created an image of Jesus as a Warrior rather than someone who promoted love. They feel threatened by anyone who doesn’t buy into the traditional role of masculinity. Have search they try to pump up testosterone levels in men and teach women that they need men’s protection. They use fear of other people as a way of motivating those men to become Warriors for the cause. This all makes a great deal of sense to me and understanding what’s underlying all of the division that we’re experiencing now.
