Benjamin Corey’s Goodbye to Evangelicalism

January 9, 2014

On his Formerly Fundie blog on Patheos, Benjamin L. Corey writes his goodbye to Evangelicalism.

“Dear Evangelicalism: I Don’t Think This Relationship Is Going To Work” is a powerful post that will speak to many of our readers.

Here’s one of his reasons, “I’m tired of the way you treat women.”

“Call me a heretic, but I think men and women are equal and that God gives individual gifting regardless of gender, and I know you don’t always share the same belief. I had hope you’d come around on this issue, but I’m realizing more and more that we just have irreconcilable differences when it comes to this, and that it’s a non-negotiable for me. I want to encourage women to use their skills, talents and abilities to be whoever God created them as individuals to be, and I just can’t be with someone who won’t support women embracing their full identity.”

And there’s more.
