Mere Orthodoxy and Rachel Held Evans

As complementarian/egalitarian interaction goes this is almost a unicorn.

These are worth reading and the first because Evans has written that it is one of the first written responses from a complementarian to listen first and disagree in a respectful way. 
Per an earlier post this week I think that blogging "merely" provides an opportunity for the presentation and discussion of ideas.  In most cases this ends up being preaching to a choir at best or self-involved soap-boxing at worst.  That's for "normal" blogging.  But for not-normal blogging there is the sometime possibility that ideas and information can be presented and shared in a way that provides a newer level of informed assessment and decision-making.
