David Madison wants to know why any women remain within the Christian church. After all, the Bible is thoroughly antagonistic towards women, he claims.
Madison boasts a PhD in biblical studies from Boston University, so presumably he can do his own research. Instead, Madison rests his treatise (published on the Debunking Christianity website a few days ago) on the tattered reed of one of the most counter-factual pieces of exegetical hogwash I have ever had the guilty pleasure of defenestrating: Annie Gaylor's "Woman, What Have I to do with Thee?", a chapter in one of John Loftus' books. (Be fair, John. When you write well, as you sometimes do, I give you credit. Don't expect me to put a ribbon around a pig in a mud bath.)
