Husbands are commanded to govern their wives; God works through a man’s decisions - good or bad - never ask others for counsel without your husband’s approval; reassure your husband that you understand and believe that he is your God-given leader - discover and conform to your husband’s real wishes; explain your hairstyle to others on the basis of your submission to your authority; separate your ‘rights’ from your responsibilities.
Michelle Duggar from TLC’s 19 Kids & Counting
Way to set women back a hundred years.
So, pretty much, Michelle Duggar is saying that a woman can’t and shouldn’t think for herself, that she has to wear her hair like her husband wants her to, that she has to conform to what her husband wants (even if it’s something she doesn’t want to do), and basically make it to where a woman has absolutely ZERO rights in the household.
So, wait, is she saying that if her husband abuses her, she has to sit there and take it because he is her “God-given leader?” EXCUSE ME???
What if her husband wishes her to be a punching bag for himself? You’re telling me that she would sit or stand there and take physical, mental, emotional, and verbal abuse from her husband, just because “God works through a man’s decisions” in a relationship?
Yeah, sounds good to me. Oh, wait, it would only sound good to me if I was Rick Santorum.
