During Friday’s edition of his radio show, American Family Radio’s Bryan Fischer insisted once again that women are simply not fit to be in positions of political power, especially not the presidency.
In response to a caller on his program, Fischer said, “you could make a pretty good biblical case … that only men are supposed to hold political office.”
He continued, using the Bible as proof that women were meant to be subservient to men. Fischer argued that it isn’t just positions of political authority that should be reserved for men, but that any type of leadership position, even within the home, should exclude women. This just so happens to be all the reason this good “Christian” needs to vote for Trump.
That’s always the pattern in the word of God. 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. 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.
Do these people hear themselves talking? Are they completely unaware of the words coming out of their mouths? Unfortunately, people like Fischer are all too cognizant of the misogynist drivel that they continuously peddle as God’s word.
And of course, Fischer is supporting Trump. This is exactly what his supporters mean when they say “Make America Great Again,” because they truly believe women should do as they are told and stay in the kitchen barefoot and pregnant. They want to take us back to the good old days when the only people who had any say were wealthy white men and everybody else was a second class citizen.
