This week in the Washington Post, Al Mohler, President of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, penned an article in response to a recent RNS Op-ed by Jacob Lupfer. Lupfer alleges that the recent uproar among evangelicals over the Obama administrations contraception mandate has less to do with religious liberty and more to do with denying women the feminist american dream. Mohler deftly and ably defines the root of evangelical unease with the current crisis.
For evangelicals, everything changed with the advent of The Pill. And evangelical acceptance of the oral contraceptives (and, beyond that, other forms of birth control) also happened without any adequate theological reflection. Today’s generation of evangelicals is indeed reconsidering birth control, and theological concerns are driving that reconsideration.
