A Poor Choice Of Words

When I first saw this article by evangelist Dr Phil Kidd I thought it had to be an over-the-top parody.

The Bible says everything that has breath has a right to praise the Lord. But there are some times when the Scripture commands woman to shut up!
...
Many Baptist churches have even put women on their pulpit committees. Can you imagine going to a church in view of a call and having a woman asking you questions concerning your doctrinal stand? Someone needs to tell them to sit down and shut up!


And after looking over the main site I was still confused and undecided. It's like someone went to the ends of the Earth and left no stone unturned to create the ultimate 1995-era web site of hyperbolic evangelical preaching.

I checked Dr Phil Kidd's web site and elsewhere and found that some people do know who he is and that he preaches at other churches so I figure this is serious stuff.

My wife told me she couldn't live like that. Struck by the new-found fundamental light of salvation, I told her to shut up. That wasn't the only thing that struck me.

Yeah, that went as bad as you think it did.

That's about how that would have gone at my house, too.
