Everybody’s a critic today.
Southern Baptists have a distinct view of women that doesn’t match up with the modern world.
In effect, advising women to take a beating from their husbands and like it, isn’t going to get you very far today. There’s also an issue involving a 16-year old girl and how much interest a man should take in underage minors.
Let’s see what put a bee in women’s bonnets and defend the “offensive” comments.
More than 1,000 Southern Baptist women have signed an open letter to the trustees of Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary that says they are “grieved by the dangerous and unwise counsel” that the group’s president, Paige Patterson, has given by telling abused women not to divorce, and are shocked by his comments that “objectify a teenage girl.”
“These comments are damaging, sinful, and necessitate a decisive response,” the women wrote in a letter published Sunday afternoon.
