According to Scripture, the noblest profession for any woman is that of wife and mother and keeper of the home. The Bible describes the attributes of a good housewife in Proverbs 31:10-31. It’s an industrious life of not only caring for her family, but for also spending some of her time making things like clothing or baked goods to sell to others so she can earn money for the household needs and helping the poor. It describes her as getting up early and not going to bed until after dark. The Proverbs 31 woman is also described as speaking wisdom and teaching kindness which is far more precious than jewels.
But to someone like liberal feminist Gloria Steinem, a Proverbs 31 woman is nothing more than a despicable worthless parasite. Some of Steinem’s other endearing quotes include:
“A liberated woman is one who has sex before marriage and a job after.”
“Some of us are becoming the men we wanted to marry.”
“Any woman who chooses to behave like a full human being should be warned that the armies of the status quo will treat her as something of a dirty joke. That’s their natural and first weapon. She will need her sisterhood.”
“We are the women our parents warned us against, and we are proud.”
“Women have two choices: Either she’s a feminist or a masochist.”
Steinem, who just turned 80, was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom last year by President Obama. She claimed to fight for women’s equality, but in reality, she only fought for the superiority of liberal women like herself and despised all other women, especially Christian women who wanted to stay home and be a Proverbs 31 wife and mother.
Sadly, other feminist leaders have the same view of housewives. Simone de Beauvoir once stated:
“No woman should be authorized to stay at home and raise her children. Women should not have that choice, precisely because if there is such a choice, too many women will make that one.”
Betty Friedan shares a similar view:
“[Housewives] are mindless and thing-hungry…not people. [Housework] is peculiarly suited to the capacities of feeble-minded girls. [It] arrests their development at an infantile level, short of personal identity with an inevitably weak core of self…. [Housewives] are in as much danger as the millions who walked to their own death in the concentration camps. [The] conditions which destroyed the human identity of so many prisoners were not the torture and brutality, but conditions similar to those which destroy the identity of the American housewife.”
If I had the chance to confront Steinem about her quest for so-called equality, I would ask her just how limiting is her equality? She has pushed for the equality of women, but at the expense of the equality of unborn children. She insists that women have the right to make their own choices about everything in life, but she fails to realize that she is taking the right to live long enough to make a choice for millions of unborn girls and boys. Her equality is their death warrants. Her right to choose stole their right to breathe and see the light of day.
Ladies – I want you to know that I totally disagree with Steinem and her liberal cronies. In my book, a Proverbs 31 housewife is the most admirable profession for any woman. She is to be honored above all women and yes, she is far more precious than jewels. I also know that a Proverbs 31 housewife is an endangered species in many parts of America.
