SOOOOOOO STAHP IT YOU GUYS!!!!! JUST STAHP IT!!!!!! DON’T LET THE TRUTH OR FACTS GET IN THE WAY OF CALLING OUT “PALEOCONFEDERATE” BIGOTRY!
I just find it so funny that it was just last year Wilson invited everyone to get a free pdf copy of his book, and decide for themselves, but now, Pastor John Piper is urging (more likely his white evangelical followers) people to STAHP reading Black And Tan, , formerly known as “Slavery As It Was.” The original title proves that John Piper lied on the video linked to protect Doug Wilson. The book was not about abortion, only mentions abortion once; it’s a defense of the Confederacy, and the enslavement of African bodies, a defense justified by Wilson’s biblical hermeneutic and his version of Calvinist theology (what Piper refers to as “The Gospel“).
Okay, John Piper, and Doug Wilson, I thank you for the invitation. I am going to re-read Black And Tan all over again, and live-tweet, and live-tumblr, and blog on every single line that’s racist [hint: the entire book], and I am not gonna be merciful or kind in the hopes of persuading Wilson’s followers; whoever endorses this man, yes this means you, Christianity Today, is too far gone to begin with, too emotionally invested to for “holy confrontation.”
It’ may not be this month, but I am re-reading Black and Tan, and making it an event.
