naturally submissive?

oh i think not

YOU want ME to pray to 'god' to 'renew a spirit of submission in my heart'? NOT IN THIS FUCKING LIFETIME OR THE NEXT 25

i guess this woman gets other women to SHELL OUT BUCKS and come and hear her spew, but i ain't gonna be one of 'em

another one of THOSE KIND who have a direct connection to god. they KNOW what god wants, and thinks and says and does

why do i think it's all bullshite? i'll tell you. because my goddess can kick her god's arse (figuratively of course. i do NOT advocate violence, even on the mount)

Housewives of God

...........Yet Shirer avoids using words like “feminist” or “career woman” to describe herself. She is an evangelical Bible teacher who makes her living by guiding thousands of women through the study of Scripture in her books, videos and weekend conferences — in which she stresses that in a biblical home and church, the man is the head and the woman must submit. She steers women away from the “feminist activists” who tell women to “do your own thing, make your own decisions and never let a man slow you down,” as she puts it. “Satan will do everything in his power to get us to take the lead in our homes,” she wrote in her book “A Jewel in His Crown: Rediscovering Your Value as a Woman of Excellence.” “He wants to make us resent our husband’s position of authority so that we will begin to usurp it. . . . Women need to pray for God to renew a spirit of submission in their hearts.”..........

Just another way of not actually practising what you preach!

Or finessing the fine edge of subversion. Which I'm sort of all for -- see the end of the article, where the author wonders how controllable this trend is likely to be in future. Still it seems to me this argument has been going on since there was a Christian church for it to be going on in, and they still haven't worked it out, so whatever...

I read the New York Times article in question, and shook my head. Why would any woman embrace a religion that treats her as an inferior?

because said woman has a hole in her heart. that's why people join cults as well. there is a piece missing from their souls and they will grab onto anything or anyone they think can fill that emptiness
