Videos about the Freedom for Christian Women Coalition (FreeCWC): What we are and why we're here!
Jocelyn Andersen and Shirley Taylor explain why the Freedom for Christian Women Coalition is needed and why it was formed. A humorous explanation of the Free CWC Logo is offered by Shirley!
The Freedom for Christian Women Coalition responds to the Danvers Statement of the Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood by offering their own set of "Rationales" and "Affirmations." Jocelyn Andersen presents FreeCWC's statements before the SF2 Convention.
Noted in the Cover Letter to CBMW:
"The Freedom for Christian Women Coalition met on July 24, 2010, in Orlando, Florida, and agreed and affirmed this Demand for an Apology from the Council on Biblical Manhood and Biblical Womanhood because of the concerns as listed . . . For the sake of all Christians, men and women, we demand that the Council on Biblical Manhood and Biblical Womanhood, make a public apology for the misuse of Holy Scripture as it relates to women, and cease to publish or promote The Danvers Statement on Biblical Manhood and Biblical Womanhood."
The disingenuous and central mantra of the Counsel on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood states that "Women are equal, but different." They then write tomes to explain the "differences," all of which either directly or indirectly negate equality. (It reminds me a little of Richard Nixon saying that he was not a "crook," and what Hitler called "The Big Lie." If you tell a lie often enough, people will believe it. The more outrageous the lie and the "bigger" it seems, the more likely people are to just give up in confusion and agree. In her presentation at the Seneca Falls 2 Evangelical Women's Rights Convention, Shirley Taylor pointed out the inconsistencies of the "Equal, but..." statements, saying she was tired of "their 'Equal, but...'s." The Freedom for Christian Women Coalition has adopted this as their mantra: "No 'Equal, but...'s! Equal means equal!"
