Re: “The Vintage church in Raleigh attracts young college students, but does its anti-women stance collide with its public image?

I think that people can believe what they want, go to church where they want, and wear whatever they want to do so. You do you.

The part that makes me nervous is when you brand really fundamentalist, anti-woman views in this hip, modern way. What message does it send impressionable newcomers when you're cool with drinking but you're not female-friendly?

Clearly, if you have fundamentalist beliefs, you're okay with that message. But as a woman raised in a Southern Baptist church who has seen the havoc a patriarchal church (and lifestyle) can wreak, it makes me nervous.

That doesn't mean that we can make all people who believe a certain thing wear scarlet letters. And it doesn't mean that Vintage is wrong for playing out their beliefs. But I do hope that newbies can see past the comfortable atmosphere and modern feel before getting too heavily involved. They should just be aware of what they're getting into and who they're learning from. Hopefully Vintage makes it really clear.
