Michele Bachmann needs to get a GD dictionary

15 Aug

This kind of shit makes me wanna pull a P-Swayze in Roadhouse move and rip a bitches throat out with my bare hands.

In the Republican debate in Iowa last week Michele Bachmann was asked if she would “submit” to her husband. Bachmann is a Traditional Christian who believes in the ideas of wifely submission. Her answer, “Marcus and I will be married 30 years coming this September. Submission means respect.”

Back the stupid ideology train the fuck up, in what known dumb as a box of rocks universe does submission mean respect. Bitch let me define some terms for you.

Merrian-Webster defines submissive as submitting to others, the word submit is defined as to yield governance or authority.

Now, respect can be interpreted in a couple different ways, it is defined as: a relation or reference to a particular thing or situation: an act of giving particular attention, consideration  :a high or special regard, esteem.

Obviously there is not way to misinterpret submission as being synonymous with respect and Bachmann knows this. She knows that the idea of wifely submission is that the wife submits to the ultimate authority of her husband on all things, this is a symbolic ritual to represent a wife’s submission to Jesus in all things.

Bachman purposefully misrepresented this because she knows that the general American public will find this freakshow religious notion archaic and laughable. And it is. This is just another attempt by Catholicism to marginalize the right of women within the church and within society.

And it has more political importance than you may think. With modern movements to establish the US as a “Christian Nation” that have been successful in some part (women’s reproductive right), this could lead to reduction, if not outright elimination, of women’s basic rights, freedoms and liberties. This may seem like an extreme view but it is not completely out of the realm of possibility, no matter how improbable we find it to be.

Am I calling Michele Bachmann anit-woman, yep. The theories of wifely submission do nothing to help her or women in general, they serve only the interest of men and their sexism. I consider that to be anti-women and an attack on my beliefs. I will not take that lightly and I will fight the ignorant ideologies that breed this kind of backwards thinking.

Nugget of Awesomeness: If your religious beliefs are valid then you wouldn’t have to lie about them. And, correct me if I’m wrong but, isn’t bearing false witness a sin??????
