American Family Association’s Bryan Fischer: Women Can’t Be Trusted to Hold Political Office
Whenever you’re curious to find out the most caveman-ish take on any given issue, just check in with our old pal (and I do mean “old,” as in Dark Ages old), the American Family Association’s Bryan Fischer. Today we discover Bryan pondering the advisability of allowing women to hold political office, and guess what? He’s agin it!
“That’s always the pattern in the word of God,” he said. “The kings were all males, when you had a departure from that with Jezebel and Athaliah, it was not a good thing, it did not work out well. Leadership in the church is reserved for men, leadership in the home is reserved for men. In other words, in God’s economy, he has designed leadership and authority in society and in the church and in the home to be exercised by men.”
“I think you could make a good case that leadership in culture, society, politically as well as in the home, that that is something in God’s economy that’s reserved for men,” Fischer stated. “What if somebody had the courage to go on national TV, somebody of some kind of prominence or visibility, and said, ‘Look, I’m going to vote for Trump because he’s a man. I don’t believe that women should be entrusted with high political office’ … That’s the position I happen to take.”
