sent me a link to a blog.
As I was reading the absolute DRIVEL of it I had an intense desire to leave abruptly…..basically it was a person explaining BIBLICALLY why people needed to stay in abusive relationships because it was GOD’S plan.
So, before I let loose on the poor idiot writer I left.
Sometimes there are just no words that are scathing enough…logical enough..condescending enough to leave as a remark.
First I was annoyed because this person’s writing seemed rational but was spouting irrational advice.
Then I was angered by the announcement as if from ON HIGH that God designed women to put aside their own thoughts, dreams and desires and kowtow to their husbands.
Then I was enraged when the writer stated baldly that women needed to just pray for the abuser and love him out of his bad behavior!
Oh this dude spouted out both old and new testament quotations to “prove’ his point of view, all of them taken out of context and all of them interpreted to show he was correct.
I HATE it when people do that! He felt he was an authority on the Bible because he has read it all the way through several times, and thus could pontificate and interpret it correctly for everyone else.
Sorry, I have read Jane Eyre several times ALL THE WAY THROUGH but I am not an English Literature scholer, nor would I ever say I was.
He proudly proclaimed he was “Baptist” and everything he was spouting was Biblically TRUE. If this garbage is what “Baptists” are preaching then leave me far, far away from it. It has sure changed (if it is REALLY what that branch of Christianity thinks) since I attended a Free Will Baptist church. By the way, thank YOU, Brother Ronnie S. for NEVER preaching that it is a wife’s duty to have sex with her husband regardless of circumstances and that it is required she stay in an abusive relationship!
I realize I am ranting but I am SO ANGRY that people advise women or men to remain in a relationship that harms them and then calls it Biblically correct!
