Quoting Quiverfull: Women Are Property?

Quoting Quiverfull: Women Are Property? September 10, 2015

quotingquiverfullby Biblical Gender Roles from Biblical Gender Roes.com – Why Does God Allow Divorce?

Editor’s note: BGR true message comes out. Men own women period. Either you’re owned by your father or your father has transferred ownership to your husband. Which is why he claims women cannot get a divorce from an abusive husband, because they belong to their husband the say way he might own a boat or a motorcycle or  a bar of soap. BGR thinks we are all just vassals and vessels.

The reason for the difference in language is that in marriage a woman was made the property of her husband. A wife could not give her husband a bill of divorce, because she was his property, only he could give her a bill of divorce and thus “free her” from the marriage.

QUOTING QUIVERFULL is a regular feature of NLQ – we present the actual words of noted Quiverfull leaders, cultural enforcers and those that seek to keep women submitted to men and ask our readers: What do you think?
