Quoting Quiverfull: Women Should Have No Rights?

Quoting Quiverfull: Women Should Have No Rights? February 18, 2016

quotingquiverfullby Steven L. Anderson as quoted by Church and State – Conservative Pastor Preaches That Women Should Be Banned From Voting And Confined To Their Homes

Editor’s note: Just like Larry Solomon of Biblical Gender Roles Steven Anderson wants women to be owned property, owned by their husbands without any say or rights over their own lives. Very complimentarian and fundamentalist, this type of thinking sets up an environment where spousal abuse flourishes.

“You know what they mean [by women’s rights]?”

“The right to divorce your husband is what they mean. You know what they mean? The right to rebel and disobey your husband, the right to divorce him, the right to go out and get a job and make your own money, the right to tell him what to do, the right to go vote for our leaders as if women should have any say in how our country is run when the Bible says that “I suffer not a woman to teach, not to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence”?

I AM QUOTING THE BIBLE RIGHT NOW!

But it’s old-fashioned…”
