The Young Turks' commentary on Michele Bachmann's comment about God mandating that good Christian women are submissive to their husbands.
I'm wondering what the secular community thinks of these remarks by Michele Bachmann about how women need to be submissive to their husbands, and receive permission from the husband to attend school or pursue their dreams in that fashion. Obviously this woman is anti-feminist and has utterly no chance of winning the candidacy. And if she did, I'd be leaving America before anybody else because it would absolutely seal our cultural doom.
I furthermore want your thoughts of her tripping over herself to reconcile the idea of 'being a submissive woman' with it meaning 'being respectful'. I made a comment on Facebook earlier today that couples should respect each other, and if her definition stands, then her husband must also say he's submissive to his wife. Otherwise she admits he does not respect her.
Also, what has happened in the Middle East since last week when you posted this, that has transformed it from "totally dysfunctional" to "sane"?
"And while I think Islamic culture is marginally better than liberal Western culture, I suggest that anyone considering Islam as an alternative first visit an Islamic country. I have been to Egypt and Jordan, and they are totally dysfunctional. Islam has its own problems."
That's a lot of progess for 7 days. Or....you could just be a fool.
Yes, that's it. A fool who chooses weak-willed female partners so as not to threaten his own insecure self-image.
Yup, that about sums it up.
Who are you?
Are you really are member of AN? It's just that your comment above, while certainly candid, was anything but thoughtful IMHO. I guess rationality in matters of religion does not automatically grant immunity from rude commenting in general. Was it supposed to be satirical? I don't get it. What you're suggesting is nonsense.
Tired of people misusing the label?
Learn the definition, then.
It doesn't matter if he's sincere in his beliefs, he knows they upset people and he throws unnecessary opinions into posts (muslims conquering America and 'setting things straight') because he knows they'll upset people. Troll.
