Quoting Quiverfull: Divinely Defined Gender Roles?

unfemininefeminity

by Nathaniel Darnell of Persevero News - Women Against Feminism“A man has no right to define for himself what his wife will do to please him. He must adopt Christ’s ideas, as revealed in Scripture, for what a wife must do to be a helpmeet to a husband and for what he must do to love her.
