Quoting Quiverfull: Loving Your Children Too Much Is Idolatry?

by Det Bowers, pastor at Christ Church of the Carolinas and candidate for Lindsay Graham’s Senate seat in AATTP.org – Pastor and GOP Candidate: Women Cause Divorce Because They Love Their Children Too Much

Det Bowers, one of six challengers for Graham’s Senatorial seat, said in a sermon at the Christ Church of the Carolinas in a podcast that was removed prior to the June 10 primaries (audio obtained by Politico), “I find that in about 95 percent of broken marriages, though the husband’s the one that ran out on his wife, the wife loves her children more than she does her husband. That is an abominable idolatry.”

Bowers then directly addressed the women in the congregation. Do you hear me, ladies?” Bowers said. “It is an abominable idolatry to love your children more than you love your husband, and it will ruin your marriage. And yet you blame it on him because he ran off with some other woman! He did run off with some other woman, and you packed his bags. All of his emotional bags, you packed for him. Is that true in every case? No, but it’s true in the vast preponderance of them.”
