“But the inability or unwillingness of White evangelical men to reckon with what they have done—certainly historically and perhaps personally—with their place of privilege among evangelical spaces will inhibit their ability to meaningful help “reconstruct” their traditions for the better.”

This really hits for me, based on my experiences at similar conferences. White male privilege is overwhelming, yet goes unaddressed. I wonder about this, as evangelicals have been more willing to talk about racism (albeit haltingly and via marginal voices, primarily). What’s your take, Blake, on why sexism goes unacknowledged?
