The feminist corruption of Christendom

The Elusive Wapiti is posting an important series on the corruption of Christianity by feminism.  In the first part, he looks at how many putative non-feminists have unthinkingly accepted feminist lies about the past.  In the second part, he defends patriarchy’s emphasis on female chastity and male responsibility.

Also not to be missed is Alcuin’s review of a book defending the Islamic view of sexual complementarity against the assault of Western feminism.  The book is The Heart of Islam by Seyyed Hossein Nasr, and it sounds better than anything a Christian has written about the family in ages.

As I’ve argued in the past, Christianity properly understood is a solidly patriarchal religion.  Historically, it has been patriarchy’s best friend.

  1. I have noticed, particularly in France, where I spend a fair amount of time, the extent to which Muslim women, at least in t he West are adopting a feminist agenda.

    The president of the Muslim women’s movement Ni Putes Ni Soumises [Neither Sluts nor Door-mats] Sihen Habchi, in a forceful attack on “multiculturalism” has demanded

    “No more justifications of our oppression in the name of the right to be different and of respect toward those who force us to bow our heads”

    and Rachida Dati, herself a Muslim and former French Minister of Justice told the National Assembly that

    “The Republic is alone capable of uniting men and women of different origins, colours and religions around the principles of tolerance, liberty, solidarity and laïcité, making the Republic truly one and indivisible.”

    Likewise, Fadela Amara, another Muslim and Secretary of State for Urban Policies has declared that

    “For this generation, the crucial issues are laïcité, gender equality and gender desegregation, based upon living together in harmony throughout the world, and not only in France.”

    Nor are these lonely or isolated voices. Every politician, of the Left or of the Right, berates the perceived racism of “Anglo-Saxon” multiculturalism – Try Goggling “l’affaire du voile or l’affaire du foulard [The headscarf business] However much people might have differed over the particular policy, they vied with each other in declaring their commitment to the Jules Ferry Laws, the Law of 9 December 1905, the ideal of laïcité[ and their unbounded faith in the capacity of the educational system to eliminate “communautarism” (that fertile source of all social ills) and to mould future citizens of the Republic, one and indivisible.

  2. Hello Mr. Paterson-Seymour,

    Thanks for telling me about this; it is very distressing news. I do worry that Islam won’t hold up against feminism. Islam is arguably mankind’s last hope. If it surrenders, atheism’s victory will be complete.

  3. Please, Bonald, don’t say nonsense like “Islam is arguably mankind’s last hope.”

    Islam may not be feminist, but its view of patriarchy seems to be based on the idea of complete subjugation, that a woman is her husband’s slave. It does not resemble at all St. Paul’s vision of the union of man and wife as a great mystery like the union of Christ and His Church.

  4. Sorry, Stephen, I understand your objection to how he said it, but I do see what he means.

    The Islamic world is the last bastion of traditional, hierarchical, religious society. The West is completely dominated by Liberalism, institutionally and culturally.

  5. […] on January 28, 2011 by bonald Will Islam bend the knee to feminism?  Michael Paterson-Seymour relates some disturbing news from France: I have noticed, particularly in France, where I spend a fair […]

  6. If Mr. Nasr’s book is an accurate portrayal of gender roles in Islam, then it would seem that Muslims hold a view fairly similar to the classical Christian one.
