..the problem with fundiculturalism


And right there is the problem with fundiculturalism. The distinction made between right and wrong is skewed so that “braless” selfies are bad, bad, bad but commanding wives to “service” their husbands orally is entirely acceptable. Loving, committed gay couples trip the gag reflex, but churches cover up rape and sexual abuse. Music, clothes, and movies are monitored but not whether we’re taking care of “the least of these.” Fifty Shades is taboo because of all the sex but not because of the overt domestic violence. Bullies and abusers get a pass because we extend “grace,” but victims and survivors frequently don’t.
