Firstly, I am not trying to just slam the guy personally. But I find the following concerning, and wonder if this is type of thing prevelant in Orthodoxy. I say this as a serious inquirer and somewhat regular visitor, and hopeful future convert who is coming from Reformed Protestantism.
As an introduction, Frank Schaeffer is the son of famous (at least here in America) Evangelical Christian Francis Schaeffer, who was a big early proponent of the Christian Right here. Long story short, he left that environment, became a political liberal (which is of course fine, I'm not trying to make this expressly political), and regularly expresses some usually false and vitriolic hatred for conservative Christians.
As far as I can tell pro-choice (I know there are Christians who disagree with me about this, no big deal - he's certainly more anti-pro-life than anything else) and pro-gay marriage. However, his biggest contribution to the whole editorial scene of this country is his consistent charge (borne out in multiple books) that Protestant Christians are women haters who fear female sexuality. Now, that's of course factually false since the Reformed position on sexuality is quite clear and even on both sexes. Besides findign that charge offensive, I fail to see how that does not equally apply to his church if it does at all. After all, you allhave two notions that are wholly foreign to modern Protestantism (no pre-fall sexuality and the Ever-Virginity of Mary) which seem to be along the lines of what Schaeffer is saying. Schaeffer, in taking the opposite position from Evangelicals (monogamy) that he is in favor or looser sexuality. You will find that he is actually extremely coy about saying what he is actually for in the midst of condemning evangelicals. It is his attitudes on sexuality and sexual sin I find most concerning, more so than political issues aobut how the state particularly should handle those issues.
So, a few questions. 1. Is this guy a communicant member of the orthodox church? 2. Is this sort of stuff concerning to orthodox or only to Protestants? 3. Is this at all a common attitude towards sexuality in Orthodox circles? It appers NOT to be from reading orthodox sources and meeting people at the parish I visit (who ahve never said "Oh you're background is Reformed? You must hate women and we support liscentiousness."
