I haven’t been keeping much of an eye on Biblical Gender Roles Larry Solomon since Lori Alexander of The Transformed Wife has been chewing the Biblical scenery. So when I posted yesterday’s bit on his horrid ideas of overthrowing the government so him and his pals could literally own women I scrolled back after and ended up in the worst idea he’s promoted yet, that you must not only stay with an abuser, but that a man physically punishing his wife is a desirable thing. I can just seen some out there extrapolating all his bad ideas into the idea that beating your wife is good.
First he claims that the federal government’s definition of spousal abuse is wrong. Why? His reasoning seems to be because it is the government doing the defining instead of each married man. Here’s some of that.
No, any type of abuse going either way is wrong, financial, sexual, verbal or physical in marriage. God did not give husbands the rights to mete out violent punishment of any type. Larry should be happy he’s not married to me as I told my husband before we married that if he ever struck me he better kill me dead in that first blow because when I got up off the floor I would be picking up a rather large cast iron frying pan to flatten his skull with before leaving for good. No one, I repeat, no one has the right to harm you in marriage, least of all under the guise of some demented punishment.
Whenever I hear one of these self titled Good Patriarchs try to justify violence in the name of God I hear this quote from Oprah Winfrey’s character Sofia in “The Color Purple” – “You oughta bash Mister’s head in and think about heaven later.”
I am not a violent person. I would never advise someone else to violence, but these patriarchs make me break that!
Please, please, please, if you are a woman stuck in a marriage with one of these guys that thinks the Bible gives them the right to harm you, please leave. It will only escalate as time passes. You are worth infinitely more than that!
