***This may be a sensitive topic for some as it has to do with abortion***
This weeks episode ended up being almost two hours long so we've decided to break it into a two-part episode.
As we look at entertainment and the arts we continue the series on Ideological Feminism taking a closer look at 2nd wave feminism and the effects its had on our culture even today. Looking into the issues that come out of feminist thinking we see many struggles and hard things brought into our world that we live in. Again when you abandon God and morality you end up with a subjective and existential idea of how to go about life.
In Scintillating Cinema this week we take a look at the 1999 film, Cider House Rules starring Tobey Maguire, Charlize Theron, Michael Caine. In this movie one of the key themes is moralizing illegal abortions. This is the logical outcome of feminism. Women's rush to move back into the public sphere has resulted in children being abandoned in the home. Abortion is the best way to "fix" that "problem." They don't want to have to take care of kids so they decide to kill them.
Often times society tries to tell us this way of thinking is alright because women have rights over their own bodies and that the baby inside of them is not a person and therefore has no rights, making it okay to kill and abort its life. As we talk on this topic over the next couple weeks we think about what it should be like and how we've come to the place we are as a culture

As we continue in our series on Ideological Feminism we go back to the roots of the world in order to better understand how feminism got its start. As we look into the history of man we examine the ideas of feminism in the Creation, The Fall, and Redemption narrative and we see that when you take God out of the picture it kicks open the door for ideologies that are out of line with Scripture.
Idolatry is part of the reason why we have issues in this world and we see this because people decide to use something or someone as the reference point of their identity. When this takes place we fall into a skewed ideology and as a result things start to collapse all around us.
As we look into the role of the man in this problem they often fall into a pattern of ease and irresponsibility and in essence become a bumbling idiot. We see this all over in art today, especially in our modern movies and sitcoms. The father figure is seen as a moron who gets taken advantage of by his kids and disrespected by his wife. This has been brought on by the lack of men standing up and taking on their proper role and responsibility of the man in the home that God has established for them.

In this weeks episode Daniel, Cody, and Roy continue with part 2 of the series on Ideological Feminism. As we look into this topic further we really dissect the issue of man's failure to take on his assigned role given to him by God. Feminism is not just about women, it is also about men's call to step into their God-designed roles. So listen in as we explore this ideology and worldview...
If you have not listened to the first part look for the previous episode: Episode 020.1 Intro to Feminism, The Enlightenment, and the Industrial Revolution
In this episode we talk about a portion of a poem titled The Angel in the House by Coventry Patmore and how this idealized woman portrays an inaccurate version of woman as created by God as well as a desperate need for man to be counter-cultural on this very view. (iF you want to read the poem in its entirety click this link - The Angel in the house)
We also talk about good ol' Arnold Schwarzenegger and his character in the 1987 film Predator and how this image of a "real" man is to be like a primitive, barbarian who is able to do whatever he wants whenever he wants. No Rules, no bounds, just man in his 'natural' habitat.

This week in the podcast Cody and Roy take on entertainment and the arts in the area of ideological feminism. In this mini-series they will be addressing this philosophy and how it has affected not only the culture but has invaded the home, the church and the workplace. As they look into this idea of feminism over the next few weeks they will be examining many facets in which this idea presents itself and different types of art that have been affected where this underlying ideology is present.
As they open up this segment they take the time to explain what ideological feminism is and a condensed history of this movement. They take a hard look into Chapter 12 of Nancy Pearcey's book Total Truth and how she covers this idea very well in how it has affected the world in which we live. As they look into the history they also contrast it to what it should be like from a Christian worldview.
Be on the lookout for more episodes on this topic in the coming weeks and be sure to interact with them via their social media outlets or by email. And as always thanks for listening to The Art of Redemption Radio.
