Editor’s note: Larry has written a list of all the good things his teenage daughter needs to know to be content in her place, to know her place. So much of this is so bad and offensive that it was difficult to simply pick out the most toxic part. This is the only bit I’ll be posting from Larry’s list.
Her methods of persuasion
She does not nag her husband into doing what is right
“A continual dropping in a very rainy day and a contentious woman are alike.” – Proverbs 27:15 (KJV)
She wins her husband by her righteous behavior toward him in spite of his failings
“1 Likewise, ye wives, be in subjection to your own husbands; that, if any obey not the word, they also may without the word be won by the conversation of the wives;
2 While they behold your chaste conversation coupled with fear.” – I Peter 3:1-2 (KJV)
Her reverence for her husband
She never makes her husband ashamed, but rather she brings him honor
“A virtuous woman is a crown to her husband: but she that maketh ashamed is as rottenness in his bones.” – Proverbs 12:4 (KJV)
She reverences her husband’s position despite the flaws of his person
“Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband.” – Ephesians 5:33 (KJV)
