"Now Michael u're a hunter. U like to hunt birds?
M: I shot a bird in middle school & regretted it ever since
M: I would love to have a real hunting experience but u've got the wrong man
Oh ok maybe we'll find about birds later
A little "later" ...
Interviewer: "What's going on with Aimee Byrd"
Michael: "She's teaching a subtle form of feminism. She's denying basic Biblical principles of patriarchy. And she's teaching a subtle form of androgeny"
This is the "good preparatory listening" Shane Anderson recommends presbyters listen to, as they go into their meetings this weekend.
Spanger again, in the same interview:
"Now one thing that bothers me greatly that Mrs. Byrd has done is women teaching men or mixed groups in the church of Jesus Christ."
"I recognize there’s been toleration [sic] in the OPC for decades now of women teaching classes, teaching theology to adult men in the church. That’s one example [of wrongdoing]."
"Times when she and others like her have been welcomes to presbyteries or pastor’s meeting to teach groups that are entirely male ... all of these sin against an important Biblical principle ... it is a shame for a woman to speak in church."
Joseph Spurgeon:
"They let people like Aimee Byrd and other women...take the lead, say things that they're too afraid to say but they're also glad that somebody is saying that. So it's sad ... You've got men like RScottClark & Carl Trueman & others that are enabling Aimee Byrd."
"And even though they took her off their podcast, they didn't really engage any of the issues. They just silently got rid of her."
"Michael, what feedback have you received from the articles you wrote against Aimee Byrd and these things?"
"All sorts but alot of the feedback has been positive for which I'm very thankful .. including from dear saints of my local church, encouraging me"
"It should be shameful to you to be called a coward. We need to have a godly shame against silence on such an important issue ... I have paid some cost for it and I would pay it again and 100 times over."
Interviewer: "Let me encourage you ...there are men who are waking up and wanting to be men. Feminism can only destroy. What is inevitable is that the patriarchy returns."

Spangler: "Yes"
Last tweet:
Again, Spanger is facing charges in his own presbytery, along with elder Shane Anderson and Pastor Bennie Castle.
And this is the message Shane Anderson says will prepare the leaders going into this meeting.

In a patriarchal system, women are entirely utilitarian, serving men's goals. This is a prime example. Women are not even mentioned! They are subsumed into a man's house holdings, his possessions.

*This is from a publicly available discussion among #genevancommons members.
And look how these men's goals have women's hurt built in. It's assumed she will homeschool, that any 'woke' aims are the enemy (ahem domestic abuse).
These plan is to build businesses that hire only men. Women are invisible, but this system is built on our backs, at our expense.
