I have just noticed a huge factual error in More Salt in the Episcopalian Wound | TheResurgence.
It deserves mentioning that the practice of female priests began only thirty years ago as a result of the women’s liberation movement.
I also see this error being repeated in other blogs referencing the original.

"Logical fallacies in the arguments against women in the church."
Dave Warnock details the logical mistakes he feels are in Driscoll’s post, but drops a clanger in his title – who exactly is arguing against women being IN the church? Precisely NO ONE!
Confession time. Yes it is a clanger in the sense that Mark Driscoll is against women as priests not against women as church members.
BUT as I think about it more, maybe it is not a clanger. I challenge the idea that it is legitimate, right and sustainable to offer a group of people membership of something while prohibiting them from a leadership role.
BBC NEWS | UK | Shoppers ‘want long Sunday hours’. No I don’t, not that they asked me. They probably only asked people in shops on Sundays.

Should we go to the Olympics next time asks David: Running Rings around Democracy. He compares the 1936 hosts with 2008 and says:
If the history of the 20th century taught us anything, it is that we cannot afford to play games with human rights.
Not sure what I think. So far I would say there is a better trend in China than there was in Germany, there is the hope that it will be hard to hide things in such a large influx.
But Human Rights are so important that we really should take this challenge seriously to think it all through. What do you think?
