Mark Driscoll on Stay at Home Dads

This video is several years old, but I only just came upon it and I think it’s an excellent example of just how rigid many evangelicals make gender roles – and just how hard they work to police them. In this video Mark Driscoll explains not only that men who stay at home with their children while their wives work are, according to the Bible, “worse than unbelievers,” but also that men who stay at home are not “real” men and will never have the respect of their wives.

Can I say how glad I am to be rid of this crap?
