Beth Allison Barr, author of “The Making of Biblical Womanhood: How the Subjugation of Women Became Gospel Truth,” is once again in a dispute with leaders from the Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood (CBMW). This time, the altercation concerns a passage from Barr’s book about a medieval Christian woman named Saint Paula.
“Y’all, I’m a kind person,” said Barr. “‘But I’m also a fighter. And I have hit my limit with @DennyBurk & @colinsmo. [Their] behavior toward me has been despicable. They failed trying to smear my orthodoxy; they failed trying [to] smear my church; so now they are trying to smear me as a mother. All because they are afraid of #MakingBiblicalWomanhood. Telling.”
