First, I’d like to set the record straight: Jesus never said that a woman needed to be subservient to her husband. St. Peter and St. Paul both wrote it in letters. No where in the New Testament did Jesus say it. In fact, Jesus usually defended women (see woman who anoints Jesus’ feet with her hair), appears to them first and made sure – while the cross – that a disciple took care of his mother.
Second, let’s get to Michele Bachmann. She may be able to read a law book (I said maybe), but she’s totally wrong on the “I have to be subservient to my husband.”
Which brings me to this: Do we really want a President who will listen to her husband above all others? What if Marcus decides it is time to bomb, I don’t know, Brazil? By her own belief, she’d have to order it.
What if Marcus wants all gays locked up (and he does, so he can “cure” us)? There’s enough crazy GOP members to go along, she could order it.
These are extremes, not unlike the Bachmanns. We don’t need a woman who bows down to her husband in the White House.
You’d never see Sarah bow down to Todd. And, for that, she gains a point.
