- Jul 29, '11 by Kooky KorkyI think each couple needs to define what submitting to one's husband means for them.
Don't forget Proverbs 31, is it, which tells of a woman with lots of managerial, administrative, and business talents.
Usually, we seem to think submitting means being a quiet keeper at home, never disagreeing with the husband, always letting him think he's in charge. A real relationship, though, acknowledges and utilized the skills and talents of both parties.
I guess the husband retains veto power, but he must love his wife and be respectful of her and not crush or stifle her.
Being the boss doesn't mean mistreating or ignoring the wife.
- Jul 29, '11 by Kooky KorkyQuote from tweetykind of like research data?point 1 of your post:...i wasn't arguing about her qualifications for president....(not that you said i was).....there's an election thread for that, but merely stating the truth, that she hasn't been in the public eye long at all for us to judge her marriage and how that affects her politics, and that related to the op. (someone else changed the subject to obama).
point 2 of your post: isn't the next verse about husbands submitting to their wives? really to me all it ever meant was be a good husband and wife, putting your spouses needs before your own. of course many fall short of that ideal. also funny thing about the bible and how it's been translated hundreds of times since it was first written, and how it's interpreted a gazillion times since then..people can pretty much make it say anything they want.
- Jul 29, '11 by TweetyQuote from kooky korkykind of. people can manipulate how they collect data and how they present it and skew it towards results they want. sometimes however honest research produces honest results that might be surprising to some and people don't want to hear it, so they stick their head in the sand in denial. research data should always be looked at with skepticism and scrutiny and demand it be replicated or compared to similar research.
kind of like research data?
of course believers can say the same thing about us whom don't believe in the bible that we "dismiss the truth presented to us and live in denial to our peril".

A Washington, D.C. judge has ordered an anti-LGBT preacher to pay MSNBC host Rachel Maddow’s attorney’s fees after he filed a $50 million lawsuit for allegedly defaming him.
Over the weekend, the blog Bradlee Dean Info first reported that Dean and his You Can Run International ministry had 30 days to pay $24,625.23.
Dean had sued Maddow last year after she aired a segment from his radio show where he said that Muslims were “more moral than even the American Christians” because they were “calling for the execution for homosexuals.”
The radio host claimed that Maddow’s report was an attempt to undermine the presidential ambition’s of his personal friend, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN).
One, the broadcasts truthfully reported on Dean’s May 15th statements. Those broadcasts re-played original audio of Dean speaking on the May 15th radio show,” the motion said. “Dean bears sole responsibility for the consequences of his words, however much he may try to distance himself from the backlash.” “Two, the commentary or rebuke Maddow offered about Dean’s statements was classic opinion and rhetorical hyperbole, and thus, cannot be actionable as a matter of law. As Dean is entitled to his opinions, however objectionable, so too is Maddow entitled to hers.”
The motion continued: “Three, the fair comment privilege protects Maddow’s commentary. The broadcasts featured Dean’s actual statements and clearly indicated the source of those statements.”
I debated starting a new thread for this. It really deserves it's own place in history. In the end I put it here as the preacher is in debt for $50 million dollars for trying to support Bachmann.
More important is the fact that the court has upheld Rachel's continued ethical use of others quotations. She does not cut and splice, she tells it like they said it. If they want to back pedal or try to blame Rachel she now is in court records as being truthful.
I wonder if Bachmann will support him to the tune of $50 million smackers? He did it all for her.
- Jul 13, '12 by tewdlesI am a political progressive (I guess) after years of membership in the libertarian party I no longer associate with any label other than American when it comes to voting.
I am also a "submissive wife" to the best of my abilities. That does not mean that my husband thinks for me, or that he tells me what to do, or that he has ANY influence in my professional work. It means that in our personal marital life we collaborate and when there is disagreement I defer to him (after an appropriate "discussion" of the disagreement and options)...on personal matters...he is the head of the household. And, because he is instructed to also love and honor me, he rarely makes decisions that are absolutely contrary to my thoughts...not because I brow beat him, but because he loves and respects me.
I believe that a biblically submissive wife can be POTUS...I would prefer, however, that it not be Mrs Bachmann, ever.
