Your husband beats you because you’re an uppity bitch that doesn’t know her place.

Or so says a prominent Christian theology professor:

Bruce Ware, professor of Christian theology at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Ky., said women desire to have their own way instead of submitting to their husbands because of sin.

“And husbands on their parts, because they’re sinners, now respond to that threat to their authority either by being abusive, which is of course one of the ways men can respond when their authority is challenged—or, more commonly, to become passive, acquiescent, and simply not asserting the leadership they ought to as men in their homes and in churches,” Ware said from the pulpit of Denton Bible Church in Denton, Texas.

See? It’s not your husband’s fault that he has to beat you senseless. He’s merely enforcing God’s vision of the role woman are to play in the relationship. Don’t think of it so much as a brutal pounding than as helpful love taps to knock you back onto the path of righteousness in hopes of saving your worthless ass from an eternity of hellfire which we all know would be way worse than the couple of black eyes and the broken arm your husband inflicted upon you. A little pain now will save you from a whole lotta burnin’ later.

So sayest professor Ware at least.

  1. That ignorant git! This man is lucky that he will probably nether meet my mother… the only fractionaly redeeming thing about this is that he partialy acknoleges the abusive party to be in the wrong. blank stare

  2. So it’s ok to beat someone if it’s to assert your authority? I fancy becoming a professor, could I walk into his office and slap him about a bit until he agrees to give me his job?

  3. Never met my ex-wife. broke my nose twice ( once was enough for me come to reality and realized that anyone that uses physical abuse to get their way is just an uneducated, ignorant human being?)

    Nope I stayed around for even more. Its not just women who put up with this kind of bullshit. Now don’t get me wrong, I’m no pussy but I won’t hit a woman. In the end I left. Just packed up my shit and drove 2000 miles away to New York. LOL. Gave her everything that we owned ( which is what those people are all about, they have no depth of emotion or intelligence.)

    There are still cavemen and cavewomen in our society. Even in this so-called enlightened age of technology and education.

    That’s what it all comes down to.

  4. Oh I have to address the religious aspect of this. Well anyone with even limited education that needs the “GOD” myth to feel some security during their existence in this mystery we call life, to me has not grown enough mentally to even make a statement like that pastor did.

    I had a amoeba once for a pet. I hope I will see it again in HEAVEN.

    duh.

    The real intelligence is knowing that we don’t know shit. Nothing. There’s one thing you know and that is it. You are here. There is no other knowledge. Other than things we made up. Lets call this a tree. lets call this a bird.

    words.

    I love your blog stupid .. and the juxtaposition you use in your post.

    `fin.

  5. What Ware is saying is pretty stupid, but to me he doesn’t seem to be say that men should beat their wives to regain authority. Rather he’s lamenting that women are not being submissive, therefore leading men to misbehave by either being passive or abusive. He’s an ass, but he’s not endorsing spousal abuse.

    He does stop short of endorsing violence, but he’s certainly blaming the victim. If women were properly submissive the way they’re supposed to be and not challenge their husband’s authority, they wouldn’t get themselves punched. Or drive some poor men into pussyhood.

  7. No one, not in the name of religion, common sense, or any other reason should be able to or even think of abusing another human.  Especially when they use the excuse ‘to put and keep the subject (male or female) in their place’.  That said I’ll shut up!

  8. “And husbands on their parts, because they’re sinners, now respond to that threat to their authority either by being abusive,

    He says men are sinners, that’s why they use violence.  If they were not sinners no doubt the woman would cower before his superiority.

    And too think my brother was too scared to tell the joke “Why do women get married in white?” to my wife.

  9. What does a woman say after she gets a black eye?

    Nothing if the bitch learned her lesson the first time.

    Most of us pay better attention in Taekwando class, but I s’pose there’re always the slow learners…  Usually it’s the boys who walk in thinking they know everything after a couple Chow Yun-Fat movies.  Hooo—and you thought whacking Creationist trolls was like shooting fish in a barrel…  wink

  10. I use to take Taekwando classes cause I got my ass kicked quite a bit as a child. It was my mother’s idea, I wasn’t all that keen on it at first. Made it to 7 geup yellow-green belt before giving it up because I’d gotten big enough that the assholes who used to beat on me thought twice about doing it anymore.

    Never had to put it into practice, but it was fun learning about at the time.

  11. I’d watch the reality show that took a guy who thinks like this and hooked them up with Ann Coulter.  wink
