Some of you may have noticed that some of our fellow Christians are not very nice. Some of them are downright nasty, deceptive, arrogant, and out to get us. Not naming names, but, they exist.
Among them are a number of hierarchical traditionalists, those who think all women should be submitted, and they will tell you how much.
There is some disagreement about how to deal with them. Some egalitarians try to be nice to them, hoping to "dialogue" to good result. I think that's mostly a waste of time and effort, and can lead to frustration and worse.
It is not always possible to ignore/avoid the malicious hard core traditionalist. In that case, I have a recommendation. Keep this quotation in mind. I hope you find it as pleasantly useful.
"Speak softly and carry a big dog biscuit." Pat Gundry, inspired by Galina Freed
Don't let its simplicity cause you to dismiss it. It is profound. And I'm the pro who founded it.
