Quote# 72383

[A woman writes for advice because her boyfriend is short-tempered and snaps at her often.]

This is all she needs to know, whether as a girlfriend or a wife:

"Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife even as Christ is the head of the church, his body, and is himself its Savior. Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit in everything to their husbands."

A girlfriend or wife does NOT criticize a man. This vain, proud woman would do well to know this and live it.

Certainly, she could take the Biblical view and risk marrying and breeding with a lout by hoping that any children she has won't inherit any of her short-tempered husbands obnoxious traits. My advice to the woman would be to dump the lout and look for better genetic material to work with for the sake of any offspring.

After all, she would hardly want to bring any more boorish and humourless beings into the world with a good chance that they will develop trollish tendencies and possibly become the type of drooling imbeciles who take the translation of ancient texts as proof of a fantasy overlord.

"A girlfriend or wife does NOT criticize a man."

But sometimes she tasers him. Like you need to be.

4/21/2010 5:24:05 AM


Proud and vain for wanting her boyfriend to not be a prick?

FOAD, please.

4/21/2010 5:27:39 AM

And you conveniently forget that the man MUST love the woman, eh?. And specially, that girlfriends are not included in the Bible. A little consequence, please.

4/21/2010 5:35:03 AM


Why is it never "as the church submits to Christ, so also husbands should submit in everything to their wives"? It sounds just as logic to me.

To these dolts, one has the urge to yell "Lorena Bobbitt for President".

Translation to english: "Bitch, why won't you stay still while i am beating you?!"

4/21/2010 5:41:15 AM

D Laurier.

Some wife beating shitstain uses a book of fairytales to defend his cowardice.

My advice is to leave the worthless prick.
Go find herself a real man.

4/21/2010 5:46:41 AM

You tell her!
and while you're at it: Remind her to make me a Sammich, with pickles!

The sad part is, Holy_Bible_Lover later on claims to be a married woman. Also I really don't remember girlfriends being mentioned in the Bible.

4/21/2010 6:10:34 AM


I would *love* for you to come to my home city and preach that nonsense - you wouldn't last two seconds, son.

4/21/2010 6:11:04 AM

And the man who hits a woman is a saint.............please. Why do this people think that a penis is something special?. Of course, she conveniently skept the part in which they have to love the wife.

4/21/2010 6:25:07 AM

@Posty: You'd be depressed by just how many of the people who preach such nonsense are women.

4/21/2010 6:35:29 AM


David J. Stewart? Is that you?

If not, so basically what you are saying is, "Women, whatever you do, don't make your man angry. Because if he gets angry and hurts you, it was all your fault."

You aren't by chance a single male are you Holy_Bible_Lover? How did I figure that out? Oh, just a lucky guess.

David B.

What HBL neglects to mention is that the very next lines in that passage are:
"Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word, and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless. In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. After all, no one ever hated his own body, but he feeds and cares for it, just as Christ does the church"

So no HBL, she should not just "live with it", even your own stupid holy book says the husband should be "rebuked" for being a dick (1 Tim 5:20), but with typical hypocrisy you are cherry picking which bits of the bible to love and which you will quietly forget all about.

4/21/2010 6:45:23 AM


Live with it my ass. If I verbally harassed my partner (male or female, in my case male) I would fully expect a swift kick to my balls, which I would deserve.

Abuse, of any kind, is NEVER EVER okay.

4/21/2010 6:51:56 AM


I should let my black belt wife go rampaging through you idiots. I'm really annoyed with the "feminist" movement, for my own reasons, but I sure as hell would agree with them before I agree with any brain dead bible thumper. And although I think that any woman who wants to be equal to men is selling herself short I still have to say:


Die in a fire is to nice for you. There are any number of industrial machines that could provide the much slower and painful demise you deserve. Its because of idiots like you that my own wife did not trust me at the beginning of our relationship.

Typical christian spouting typical archaic bullshit.

So when he finally goes off the deep end and beats her to death, she can go to heaven knowing she followed gods path. Yay!

Misogyny For Jebus seconded

4/21/2010 7:09:09 AM


This is one of those rare cases where I question the right to free speech.

4/21/2010 7:33:31 AM


If I was a battered and abuse woman and someone read that passage to me, they'd be walking funny from having that fucking Bible shoved up their ass sideways.
The Bible was written by misogynistic Bronze and Iron Age fucktards and the sooner we as a society ignore it completely, the sooner we can make some real progress.

4/21/2010 7:37:55 AM


Um, girlfriends aren't Biblical, dumbass. Even the Bible itself says that a woman need only submit to her own husband (and he's supposed to love her in return).

And some women in the Bible did criticize their husbands, or other male kin, and deservedly so:

Genesis 21:12 God told Abraham to listen to Sarah
Genesis 38:26 when Tamar shamed Judah
Exodus 4:25 when Zipporah saved Moses
Judges 5:23-27 Jael did more than merely criticize her husband; she killed Sisera in defiance of Heber
Esther 1:12 when Vashti disobeyed Ahasuerus' crass command

There are plenty of other examples where women either criticized men, or were protected against male criticism.

YOU FAIL, "Holy Bible Lover."

Doubting Thomas

Yeah, it's perfectly OK if he slaps her around whether she needs it or not. She just needs to shut up & stay in the kitchen making dinner and babies.

And Christians wonder why people think they're misogynist.

4/21/2010 7:54:19 AM

Holy_Bible_Lover fails since the girlfriend is not a wife to the man.
