Women's rights

"the wife is to subordinate herself to the husband ... The woman is to place herself under the authority of the man."
Even Republican Sens. Susan Collins of Maine, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Kay Bailey Hutchison of Texas claim Holmes does not have a "fundamental commitment to the equality of women in our society."

Women don't want total equality with men, they will get the power and the money. They will also get the shorter lifespan and the additional stress that comes along with that life style.

They might yell for equality, but then want to take off months from work to go be pregnant. Is equality be treated exactly they same way or is it being treated equally? For example if I got pregnant could I get some time off to care for my child.

I love when people who don't read the bible, but take one verse from the bible and critique it. They do not talk about the passages that talk about a husband's commitment to his wife, and his duties. Notice how close all the verses are.

Ephesians 5:22
Wives, submit to your husbands as to the Lord.
(Whole Chapter: Ephesians 5 In context: Ephesians 5:21-23)

Ephesians 5:24
Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything.
(Whole Chapter: Ephesians 5 In context: Ephesians 5:23-25)

Ephesians 5:25
Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her
(Whole Chapter: Ephesians 5 In context: Ephesians 5:24-26)

Ephesians 5:28
In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself.
(Whole Chapter: Ephesians 5 In context: Ephesians 5:27-29)
