I Don’t Think Wives Sign Up For This
Anyone who’s been lurking on this blog over the years knows I don’t think much of religion. It can be dangerous bullshit. With that in mind, I submit this:
A Seventh-day Adventist pastor told his Bronx, New York congregation that wives belong to their husbands, as property, and they must “submit” themselves to their husbands, even if that means being raped by them.
“I would say to you gentlemen, the best person to rape is your wife,” he added in his November 13 sermon, as Religion News Service reports.
“In this matter of submission, I want you to know upfront ladies, that once you get married, you are no longer your own. You are your husband’s. You understand what I’m saying? I emphasize that because I saw in court the other day on TV where a lady sued her husband for rape. And I would say to you gentlemen, the best person to rape is your wife…”
To the credit of the church, this guy’s no longer in the pulpit but it’s undeniable that you can get some pretty bad advice from the Bible.
