Quoting Quiverfull: Lack of Submission Causes Domestic Violence? January 10, 2016

quotingquiverfullby Archbishop of Toledo Braulio Rodriguez in The Mirror – Fury as archbishop says domestic violence is caused by women ‘not obeying men’

Editor’s note: Just when it seems like the leadership of the Catholic church was starting to realize that they had to modernize to keep their members this guy shows that old dangerous ideas still abound.

An archbishop caused fury in Spain by saying domestic violence happens because “women do not obey men”.

The Roman Catholic Archbishop of Toledo, Braulio Rodriguez, told his congregation that wives could avoid being hit by doing what they are told.

Women could also escape being physically abused by not asking their husbands for a divorce , Rodriguez said.

He told churchgoers in his sermon: “The majority of cases of domestic violence happen because the woman’s partner does not accept them, or rejects them for not accepting their demands.
