So, I didn’t watch the debate last night (are you used to that yet?) but I have read some of the scuttlebutt, and this piece by Mollie Hemingway is by far the most important thing I’ve seen. She’s addressing, of course, Byron York’s question to Rep. Bachmann about the biblical issue of submission. As you might guess, I don’t think this has any place in a presidential election, but Mrs. Hemingway makes some awesome lemonade out of a lemon of a question:
The fact is that the husband’s given role — that of complete sacrifice for his wife — is much more difficult than the wife’s role of submission. But something tells me we won’t be seeing anybody ask the Catholic or Evangelical male candidates whether they can be president while holding a Biblical view of marriage that requires this complete sacrifice for their spouse.
Read the whole thing.
