Quoting Quiverfull: Women Must Vote Same as Their Husbands?

Quoting Quiverfull: Women Must Vote Same as Their Husbands? March 7, 2017

quotingquiverfullby Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife – Why Does Disobeying Our Husbands Blaspheme the Word of God?

Editor’s note: ‘Political’? This is something that Lori is digging out of very old commentaries that is not once mentioned in Titus. Pulling things out of her derrierre again just to support her toxic ideas. Vote however you like. There’s no rule anywhere in the Bible that forbids it or says that you even have to tell your spouse, or anyone else, how you voted. This more more of her nitpicking that ignores the large scope of the gospel and the words of Jesus.

Did you see that obeying him in everything includes “political”? This does NOT go over well in today’s culture. Voting is a sacred right even among many Christian women. Obeying our husband even means voting the way he votes since he is our leader. No, voting is not a sacred right given by the Lord. It was a right given because feminists fought for it. They didn’t trust men to make the right decisions. They thought they would make better leaders than men. This blasphemes the Word of God because God created men first and made them as the leaders of nations, churches, and families. Chaos usually prevails when women take over leadership positions which speaks evil of the Word of God by destroying the churches and causing them to be lukewarm. Not always, as in the singular case of Judge Deborah and a few other women who have ruled with wisdom, but God created men with their emotional stability to be the rulers and leaders.

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? Agree? Disagree? This is the place to state your opinion. Please, let’s keep it respectful – but at the same time, we encourage readers to examine the ideas of Quiverfull and Spiritual Abuse honestly and thoughtfully.

    No, voting is not a sacred right given by the Lord. It was a right given because feminists fought for it.

    Welp, she’s got that part right, at least.

    Added: what she does not recognize is that the political rights men have weren’t donated to them by the Lord either. The Declaration of Independence may cite life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness as “unalienable rights” provided by the Creator, but the American colonists couldn’t automatically claim these rights from the Creator as a matter of course: they had to fight the British for them first.

    Hmm, I see the CPM and other conservatives are still quaking in their boots more than a month after the Jan. 21st Women’s March. They have been in their cozy echo chambers so long that they forgot that the majority of the country does not subscribe to their belief that patriarchy is the best and most desirable system for organizing societies.

    Those pink “pussy’ hats were a wake-up call; in red states and blue states. As usual, they will just double down with the propaganda and try to bluster their way to political supremacy.

    I’m wishing them deep pink hued nightmares for the next four to eight years.

    Frankly, God didn’t create democracy, either. In Jesus’s day, Herod was an absolute ruler and men couldn’t vote, either. So, why is men voting the way God supposedly wanted it and women voting isn’t?

  • Nea

    “God doesn’t want women leading. Except when he does. So don’t try to be a leader, because god.”

    Okay, that makes sense. Not.

  • AuntKaylea

    Tomorrow is International Women’s Day – and is “A Day without Women” – to show what the workplace looks like without women. . .

    Germany has done pretty well for itself under chancellor Angela Merkel. She’s a tough cookie and I like her. Margaret Thatcher, as much as I loathe her politics and the upheaval that came with it, also knew her own mind. Teresa May is about to wreck the UK and still has no plan on how to do so, so maybe not a great example of a female leader. Elizabeth I definitely was.

    Too right women fought to vote, why shouldn’t we? Oh, men have ’emotional stability’ do they? This is the CPM movement we’re talking about here, right? Where men are expected to have all the emotional stability of a toddler. I can also point out that I’m the most emotionally stable one in my marriage, but I doubt that would fly with Alexander.

    What Lori doesn’t seem to consider (or at least doesn’t want to consider) is the possibility that she doesn’t know what every man wants. While my husband and I do believe in wifely submission, we are far and away from being fundamentalists. He’s thankfully never been hit with that stick (I have a little bit in the past), but we’re both familiar enough with it to know we want nothing to do with it.

    However, with that said, my husband has told me (and reiterates every election), that he wants me to vote how my conscience is directing me, and that he intends to do the same. If my conscience is leading me towards a different candidate, that is fine with him. If my conscience is leading me towards supporting his candidate simply because he is, that’s fine with him, but he made very clear that would be my conviction and not his; and that that wouldn’t be his personal preference for me. If I had followed Lori’s advice here and considered it a sin to have a difference in political opinion than my husband, I’d run the risk of actually going against what he wanted. I’m guessing she’s never considered that possibility.

    Of course, I will mention that I think being politically like-minded is a bonus in a marriage. I’m guessing that my husband and I will vote for the same candidates far more often than we don’t. But because he is more keen on 3rd party candidates than I am, there’s always that chance we won’t be 100%. And that’s ok. With both of us.

    Queen Elizabeth I. Queen Victoria. Catherine the Great. Indira Gandhi. Sojourner Truth. Margaret Thatcher. Madeline Albright. Angela Merkel. And so many more. All women who were leaders in some capacity or other, who did their best with the world they lived in, and who are generally respected as competent people. Does Lori really think that none of them had anything worthwhile to contribute? That the world would have been better if they’d stayed home cooking and cleaning. Does she not understand that the only reason she’s allowed to post her drivel in the first place is because other women fought the political establishment for the right to be heard and taken seriously? I really wish Lori and her cohorts would pull their heads out of their asses and realize how privileged they are, all because some uppity women refused to submit to men.

    Yeah, Donald Trump is the very picture of “emotional stability.”

  • This only works if hubby is a member of God’s Own Party. If he happens to be a horrible Demoncrat, you must vote against him to cancel out his sin. How else will God’s Kingdom flourish in this sin-infested country. (smo)

  • RetroPam

    More on the subject:

    “Biblical Patriarchy and the Doctrine of Federal Representation”

    Yes, it argues against the right of women to vote. Oppressive, disgusting ideas never die.

    That’s why the price of liberty is eternal vigilance – and a pledge to the civil liberties organization of your choice.

    Tomorrow is International Women’s Day. I wonder how many major American media outlets will mention it.

  • Anonyme

    Go to the comments section of Lori’s post and read the comment by ‘Bethadilly’. Lori is having an epic meltdown.

  • paganheart

    Well if women are just going to vote the way their husbands tell them to, because God, why should women even vote at all? Their votes are just duplicates of their husbands anyhow….Just sayin’….I don’t like where this is headed….

  • Christine Sarah Pike

    Wow – those evil feminists not trusting men to make the right decisions! This is so ridiculous all you can do is laugh. Happy Women’s Day to all, bybthe way 🙂

  • Christine Sarah Pike

    I somehow doubt the fragrant Lori has heard of any of those women.

  • Saraquill

    “God created men with their emotional stability to be the rulers and leaders.”

    This does not explain Pearl, Vaughn Olman, Dobson, Biblical Gender Roles, and all the other pissy guys who are regularly quoted here.

  • Trellia

    Numbers. If they cut down on the voting pool, it would be a lot easier for us evil liberals to pass more good bills and get in progressive candidates.

  • Trellia

    Unless a woman is showing cleavage or an ankle. But other than that, they are totes more emotionally stable! Really!
