Quoting Quiverfull: Women Keep Silent?

by Steven L Anderson Pastor of Faithful Word Baptist Church as quoted by Alter Net – Pastor Who Prayed For Obama’s Death Has a New Cause: Shutting Women Up In Church

“Now obviously, before the service begins, there’s chatting and talking going on, that’s perfectly legitimate. When we all sing praises to God, of course the ladies should also lift up their voices,” Anderson, who is also anti-gay, said.  But once services begin, it’s shut-up time.

Women are to learn “in silence…When the preaching of God’s word is taking place — and first of all, it’s not for a woman to be doing the preaching, and second of all, it’s not for women to be speaking,” he said.  “Even if they were to have a question, they’re not to ask that question in the church, number one. Number two, even if they want to ask that question to their husband, they should wait until they get home.”
