How Quaint

Huckabee is the new news. Polls show him picking up support everywhere polls are being done. But with the points comes the attention and Huckabee has got some rather interesting positions. In 1998 he signed onto a statement that

A wife is to submit herself graciously to the servant leadership of her husband even as the church willingly submits to the headship of Christ.


Just to be clear, he did this in 1998 not 1898. Do Southern Baptist women really sign on to this crap? Or is it more like "Oh sure honey I "submit" to your sacred leadership. Now take out the trash." I can't imagine this going over for real in this day and age.

Yeah, some do. And not just baptists. I was at a wedding recently where those words were read (as well as two more hours related to how the book of revelation refers to a wedding, and lots more scary stuff that I've blocked out). And the bride here was the recent number one mechanical engineering graduate from cal poly. She recently quit her job due to crappy management. On her husbands suggestion, she's taking some time to look for another job so that she and her husband can get used to what it will be like once she starts popping out kids and stops working.
So yes. They really do. Scary.
