The Weirdest Thing I’ve Ever Heard Of…

Is the ‘stay at home daughter’ movement.  A movement which believes that daughters ought to stay at home until they marry.  They should not go to college, they should not seek to think for themselves, and they should dutifully and joyfully serve their fathers until they have a husband…

I’m not kidding.  At first, when my own daughter told me about it, I thought it was a joke.  A horrible, misogynistic joke a la the Onion.  Alas, sadly, it is no joke at all!

I thank God that my own daughter is too smart and too wise to fall for such anti-Christian anti-intellectual rubbish.

Daughters aren’t to be independent. They’re not to act outside the scope 
of their father. As long as they’re under the authority of their fathers, fathers have the ability to nullify or not the oaths and the vows. Daughters can’t just go out 
independently and say, ‘I’m going to marry whoever I want.’ No. The father has 
the ability to say, ‘No, I’m sorry, that has to be approved by me.’

The only people who would adopt such a view are those who hate their own children.  Male and female.  Such persons are, furthermore, totally depraved and totally misrepresenting Scripture and Christianity.

    Sounds like fundamentalist Islam, quite acceptable in Saudi Arabia I imagine.

    I chuckle to imagine the same folks in Oklahoma who voted against sharia law being applied in court applying this principle at home…
