Did anyone else notice this quote in Friday's USA Today?
\"At a news conference Thursday in Atlanta, (Martha) Burk said the rainout (of the first round of the Masters golf tournament) was evidence that Mother Nature had joined her cause. 'The goddess is watching,' she said.\"
Regardless of whether or not one thinks Augusta National should admit women (or cares), Burk's comment--tongue-in-cheek or not--reveals that silliness of the radical feminist movement and they way it, like so many other politically correct notions, have become dieties unto themselves. Of course, Burk also revealed the pettiness of her self-created \"goddess.\" Our God has more important things to tend to.
As we in the Restoration Movement continue to discuss the role of women in the church--as I sincerely hope we do--I pray that we won't deify our own positions.
