When I hear critical characterisations of ‘Calvinism’ or ‘evangelicalism’ or ‘complementarianism’ or even ‘Christianity’… Sometimes the criticisms are clumsy, ignorant, unfair or paranoid.

Sometimes they’re just critical. They might understand these well but and just disagree with me about their nature and value. It’d be fragile of me to dismiss these second type by lumping them in with the first.

I think the same dynamic is at work with criticisms of more ‘left’ ideologies like ‘Critical Theory’, ‘Cultural Marxism’ or whatever. Some criticisms are indeed educated and fair. They just might be less sympathetic than the champions of these sensibilities/outlooks are.
