Feminism is Anti-Scripture

In Titus 2:4-5, 1 Timoty 5:14, and Provers 31:27, the Lord clearly shows us that it is His will and design that women be homemakers. That is the very important job that the Lord lovingly ordained for us. Feminism is savagely anti-homemaking, and is also therefore completely anti-Scriptural. Listen to these horrible and heretical quotes by leading feminists:

"The housewife is a nobody, and housework is a dead-end job. It may actually have a deteriorating effect on her mind...rendering her incapable of prolonged concentration on any single task. She comes to seem dumb as well as dull. Being a housewife makes women sick.” ~ Sociologist Jessie Bernard

“A parasite sucking out the living strength of another organism...the housewife’s labor does not even tend toward the creation of anything durable.... Woman’s work within the home is not directly useful to society, produces nothing. The housewife is subordinate, secondary, parasitic. It is for their common welfare that the situation must be altered by prohibiting marriage as a career for woman.” ~ Simone de Beauvoir

“Housewives are mindless and thing-hungry...not people. Housework is peculiarly suited to the capacities of feeble-minded girls. It arrests their development at an infantile level, short of personal identity with an inevitably weak core of self.... Housewives]are in as much danger as the millions who walked to their own death in the concentration camps. The conditions which destroyed the human identity of so many prisoners were not the torture and brutality, but conditions similar to those which destroy the identity of the American housewife.” ~ Betty Frieden

“Housewivesare dependent creatures who are still children...parasites.” ~ Gloria Steinham

[The husband’s work provides for greater challenges and opportunities for growth than are available to his wife, whose horizons are inevitably limited by her relegation to domestic duties. This programs her for mediocrity and dulls her brain.... Motherhood can only be a temporary detour.” ~ Nena O’Neill and George O’Neill

“Women owe Frieden an incalculable debt for The Feminine Mystique.... Domesticity was not a satisfactory story of an intelligent woman’s life.” ~Elizabeth Fox-Genovese

“As long as the woman is the primary caretaker of childhood, she is prevented from being a free human being.” ~Kate Millett

“As long as the family and the myth of the family and the myth of maternity and the maternal instinct are not destroyed, women will still be oppressed.... No woman should be authorized to stay at home and raise her children. Society should be totally different. Women should not have that choice, precisely because if there is such a choice, too many women will make that one. It is a way of forcing women in a certain direction.” — Simone de Beauvoir

“Feminism was profoundly opposed to traditional conceptions of how families should be organized, since the very existence of full-time homemakers was incompatible with the women’s movement.... If even 10 percent of American women remain full-time homemakers, this will reinforce traditional views of what women ought to do and encourage other women to become full-time homemakers at least while their children are very young.... If women disproportionately take time off from their careers to have children, or if they work less hard than men at their careers while their children are young, this will put them at a competitive disadvantage vis-a-vis men, particularly men whose wives do all the homemaking and child care.... This means that no matter how any individual feminist might feel about child care and housework, the movement as a whole had reasons to discourage full-time homemaking.” — Jane J. Mansbridge

These quotes just break my heart. It is so sad to see women completely disregard the Bible and what it says. The Lord, for a reason, chose that women ought to be the ones taking care of the home. He is infinitely wise, and lovingly ordained a sphere for women in which their true strength would be found.
