The church was full last Sunday. HUNDREDS of people worshiping God.
And DOZENS of men.
Why have the men abandoned church? I submit that American evangelical religion has been feminized. When the church gets around to preaching Normal behavior of men has been criminalized.
Going fishing with a cooler of beer and talking about women is sinful; looking at naked women is the “number one sin issue facing the church today.” But a women’s “retreat” discussing “intimacy issues” with a wine and cheese social afterwards is “a good example of how the church can relate to the modern family.”
We can get a special church meeting together to discuss the “health” issues of weight loss, but when is the last time that the church organized a trip to a cage fight. But I’ll guarantee you that men doing Mixed Martial Arts training are pretty damn healthy.
