The Huckabees provided earlier occasions to discuss the Baptist belief that women should "graciously submit" to their husbands. But I don't think either Mike or Janet went so far as to say pushy wives were asking for spouse abuse.
Get a load of this Baptist theologian. What does he think it means to be a Bible-believing Baptist woman?
"It means that a woman will demonstrate that she is in fact a Christian, that she has submitted to God's ways by affirming and embracing her God-designed identity as--for the most part, generally this is true--as wife and mother, rather than chafing against it, rather than bucking against it, rather than wanting to be a man, wanting to be in a man's position, wanting to teach and exercise authority over men."
Woman exercise authority over a man? Terrible idea. Don't you agree, sweetie?
