In this episode David and John respond to the ongoing violence against women and children perpetrated by men in our land. Deliberately centering the conversation on men we explore what the Bible has to say to this toxic masculinity that has so pervaded our society and our churches.

How do we respond to statistics which suggest that over 40% of South African women will be raped in their lifetime? Is it true that #menaretrash ? Can we really say #notallmen ? Are these kinds of hashtags useful? What are the root causes of this violence being perpetrated by men? Why is there such an outcry now? What role, if any, does our toxic history play? Does our church culture or even our theology harbour a form of male supremacy? Is the death penalty the answer?
