While reading through Zsuzsanna Anderson’s blog one thing jumps out again and again that I’ve noticed in most of the more conservative Evangelical and Quiverfull blogs – Fear of the federal government as some evil beast seeking to destroy Christian families. Like this bit from Anderson:
Instead of men obeying God, wives obeying their husbands, and children obeying their parents (God’s line of authority, all tempered by mutual love and respect), we can all be oppressed by a hateful government and live in the midst of chaos and violence. I’m glad that our family has God to watch over and protect us, because things are only bound to become worse as our government gets more and more involved.
Is it verklempting about who is in control? Weak patriarchs that cannot abide having to answer to anyone else not God? Christian martyrbating? Fear of what they cannot control?
Bonus questions: Why are the same folks in fundamentalism that decried Donald Trump as an anti-Christ now endorsing him as the chosen candidate for them? Is the thought of a woman controlling their futures that threatening? Why?
