Fischer: Women Shouldn’t Be Allowed to Hold Public Office

Fischer: Women Shouldn’t Be Allowed to Hold Public Office August 15, 2016

And we can unsurprisingly add Bryan Fischer to the list of Christian misogynists who say women are unfit for public office and should not be allowed to be president. And he thinks something — he doesn’t say what — would change if some prominent person would say that on TV.


“That’s always the pattern in the word of God,” he said. “The kings were all males, when you had a departure from that with Jezebel and Athaliah, it was not a good thing, it did not work out well. Leadership in the church is reserved for men, leadership in the home is reserved for men. In other words, in God’s economy, he has designed leadership and authority in society and in the church and in the home to be exercised by men.”

“I think you could make a good case that leadership in culture, society, politically as well as in the home, that that is something in God’s economy that’s reserved for men,” Fischer stated. “What if somebody had the courage to go on national TV, somebody of some kind of prominence or visibility, and said, ‘Look, I’m going to vote for Trump because he’s a man. I don’t believe that women should be entrusted with high political office’ … That’s the position I happen to take.”

What if someone did that? They’d be laughed off the stage and called a misogynist douchebag, as they should be. As you are.
