Meet Christine O’Donnell: Tea Party Candidate For Delaware’s Next Senator

If you have not previously encountered Christine O’Donnell (who is running for the Republican nomination in Delaware), she is becoming the new face of the Tea Party and what some hope is the new Republican party. One issue that makes her stand out is her rather expansive definition of what constitutes adultery.

She is running against Rep. Mike Castle, a former governor. However, she seems more inclined to debate subjects like masturbation than most politicians, including her position that masturbation is an act of adultery. This could make for an interesting debate.

O’Donnell told an MTV interviewer in 1998 that masturbation is the same as adultery because “the Bible says that lust in your heart is committing adultery. So you can’t masturbate without lust.” She has also written that “[w]hen a married person uses pornography, or is unfaithful, it compromises not just his (or her) purity, but also compromises the spouse’s purity.”

You have to admit this makes for a much more interesting debate than the usual fare of debating tax rates and federal jurisdiction.

  1. If liberals sit home or vote for just any third party candidate, they are creating a situation in which these people takeover congress. Moving backwards is worse than the status quo.

  2. “However, she seems more inclined to debate subjects like masturbation than most politicians, including her position that masturbation is an act of adultery.”

    It’s hard to type a comment while I’m ROFLMAO!!!

  3. I can only say, read Matthew, about Chapter 6….do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing……

  4. What would your think/feel if you caught your spouse/SigOther/hooker (Paid or unpaid)/ whacking or vibrating it on the sly? I imagine one would feel either cheated on or not quite up to par with their needs. At least she answered the question and didn’t circumnavigate some bs answer.

    Generally when choosing between two evils one should pick the lesser, but what if even the lesser evil is worse than can be tolerated? That is the situation in the US, the Republican Party is beyond insane, but the Democrats are going to continue most of the policies that are destroying civil society minus the bashing of women and gays.

    Positively the best response … lol and spilled coffee!

  7. I don’t think all the democrats are evil including Nancy Pelosi. We are not on the same page. People said there was no difference between Al Gore and Bush. With two wars and a bankrupt nation, I hope these people realize they were wrong but maybe not. The democrats are not perfect, but “the perfect is the enemy of the good”.

    It is imperative to keep pressing this point … these teabaggers pose a real threat to the country as a whole … I’m not going to fall into the evil trap … simply put, the teabagger policy is harmful to the majority of the population

  9. I hope a real journalist will investigate the tea party movement. In Michigan and another few states it was shown that Democrats were running and funding “tea party” candidates under false pretenses. This interference in our election process should offend those who care about voters and the integrity of our elections. Do we know where her funding comes from? I’d like to.

    Just because a candidate wants to talk masturbation, doesn’t mean the press should acquiesce to the inanity. We need a press that will question authority, both R and D. We don’t have that now. We have a completely complicit press which goes along with stupid propaganda like, “The Iraq war is over” (except for the AP and a few others). Make her answer questions about real issues. Make anyone in office or running for office account for their actions–end of story.

  10. The difference is the republicans are sponsoring some green candidates and bragging about it. One even ended up on the front page of the NYT. The democrats pulled back in Michigan the candidates won’t be on the ballot. Why is it that republicans can get away with “dirty tricks” and democrats can’t?

  11. It’s funny but whenever I think of the terms “Tea Bagger” and “debate”, I’ve always had the subconscious reaction to think “circular masturbation”. Or is that “circle jerk”? It’s hard to hear. It is my subconscious speaking after all. But one thing rings through loud and clear when I hear pols speak like O’Donnell and that is the term “uninformed ignorance”.

  12. hopefully she will be elected. It would be worth it to see the liberals mess themselves.

    At least she has sex, most liberals are so consumed by it because they never get any or cant function in the bedroom all worried about race and sex.

    Blouise:

    see if you can find the grammatical error.

  13. Buddha is Laughing:

    ““uniformed ignorance” ”

    what is uniformed ignorance? Is that a policeman that failed the police exam or a Catholic school student?

  14. Jeepers Creepers,

    Hey there Jeep, welcome back … hope you’re not contemplating a violation of the latest teabagger’s abominable act … you guys are no fun at all … good to hear from you, though.

    I apologize for attacking your grammatical errors earlier … it was the first time I’d come across your posts and didn’t realize, till other posters directed me to earlier writings from you, that it was part of your endearing style. Err on without fear of reprimand!

    So how’s it been going in teabagger land? Has GeeGee been behaving? (sshh, come closer … Be careful, I think he/she is skulking around trying to spot sly masturbaters … just a friendly word to the wise …)

  15. Can we look forward to the institution of a federal Morals Police, to roam the streets, flogging those who look like they may have masturbated? Or stationed at airports, making sure that no pregnant woman leaves the country? Or breaking down the doors of anyplace where two people of the same sex live? Or bursting into bedrooms to be sure that sex is for procreation only? And we wonder at what goes on in Saudi Arabia….

  16. Here’s a fine example of uninformed ignorance:

    Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio Won’t Rule Out 2012 White House Run

    This jackbooted thug and Tea Bagger hero being investigated by the DOJ in anticipation of prosecution for abuse of power and corruption thinks he has a chance at winning a national election.

    That would be uninformed ignorance dancing with wishful thinking.

    Much like the Tea Baggers are the uninformed (and easily manipulated) leading the blindly angry all the time thinking they are a populist voice for restoring the Constitution when they are in fact tools of the Koch brothers and Dick Armey and playing right into the very hands of those who would make this country a theocratic and/or fascist dictatorship.

  17. Yes, tea baggers smell almost as bad as the bleeding bodies of our torture victims and dead civilians around the world. Will the hilarity of this govt. ever end?

  18. Swarthmore Mom said:

    “Why is it that republicans can get away with “dirty tricks” and democrats can’t?”

    The Republicans seem to have a knack for finding the Democrats committing less extreme versions of the same offenses and making a false equivalency argument. The really sad part is that the Democrats usually resign (Elliot Spitzer) while the Republicans just keep hanging around (Ensign, Sanford, Vitter, …). The attitude seems to be that the Democrats ‘should know better’ while on the other hand ‘what did you expect, they’re a Republican’. When you combine this with their adeptness at using the ‘Big Lie’ technique and their 24 hour propaganda network it’s very formidable.

    I couldn’t agree more about the difference between bad and worse – if the left wants to achieve any of its goals, it’s time to suck it up and support the Democrats. Does anyone seriously think that Speaker Bohner will be better for the progressive agenda than Speaker Pelosi has been?

    Jill,

    Whatever anyone thinks about the media (left, right, or center) the fact is that we have a media that is most likely incapable of turning away from a story about masturbation for any reason (with the exception of Jon Stewart who job includes connecting any story to masturbation if at all possible…).

  19. eniobob,

    “Dream Ticket”?

    John Bolton/Joe Arpaio.

    LOL!!!

    *****
    How about a Dream Girl Ticket?”

    Some suggestions:
    – Sarah Palin/Michele Bachmann
    – Jan Brewer/Sharron Angle
    – Liz Cheney/Mary Matalin

  20. Elaine,

    I’ve always thought of Caribou Barbie and the reincarnation of Joe McCarthy (or, as I like to think of them, ‘Bachmann-Palin Overdrive) as the ultimate nightmare ticket, but Brewer/Angle is pretty scary, too… Let’s round up the illegals (and anyone who looks Mexican, just to be sure) and repeal social security! Liz ‘my father’s a war criminal and I’m proud of him’ Cheney and Ms. Matalin (she’s not crazy enough to merit an epithet of her own) aren’t even in the same weight class…

  21. When you start talking about how people smell and how to cleanse them, (as was done above) you really have become the evil you decry. Grab back your humanity while you still can.

  22. Buddha- You said,”It’s hard to hear.” How did you lose your hearing? And, by the way, didn’t you used to be known as “Harry Palmer”? I once had a pet from the Simian family, but I had to donate him to the zoo. His behavior was very bad and I was constantly spanking my monkey.

  23. HenMan,

    Actually my hearing is fine. It’s my vision that is going bad. And while I’m often mistaken for close relative Chili Palmer (more due to demeanor than actual appearance), no one mistakes either of us for our mutual cousin and renowned reprobate, Harry Palmer. Talk about somebody you can’t take anywhere without causing a commotion!

    That’s our Harry.

    Oddly enough, Harry is the family’s lone Tea Bagger. Coincidence? I think not.

  25. Another suggestion for a Republican Dream Team: Palin/Beck!

    From Think Progress (9/9/2010)
    Palin-Beck 9/11 Profiteering Event Promoter Says Rally Date Is Just A Coincidence
    by Ben Armbruster
    http://thinkprogress.org/2010/09/09/beck-palin-rally-coincidence/

    Excerpt:
    Prominent conservatives and right-wing groups are making plans to use the 9/11 anniversary this weekend to rake in some cash. Among them are Sarah Palin and Glenn Beck, who are teaming up for a rally in Anchorage, AK. The right-wing duo are charging attendees between $74 and $225 to hear them speak. The Hill reported, “There was no indication as to whom or what the proceeds will go.” And, the AP reports that promoters for the Palin/Beck rally seem to want to downplay this perceived 9/11 profiteering:

    Event promoter Christopher Cox says the 9/11 date is a coincidence. Cox originally eyed Sept. 4, but didn’t want to compete with the Alaska State Fair.

    Cox says Beck will be introduced by Palin, a potential 2012 White House contender who hasn’t announced her political intentions. Palin spokesman Doug McMarlin didn’t immediately return requests for comment.

  26. I think it’s time to clear up the heretical rantings of Ms. O’Donnell on the issue of masturbation. The concept of masturbation as sin derives from the story of Onan, who disobeyed God’s order to impregnate the widow of his (Onan’s, not God’s) brother by permitting his seed to spill onto the ground. There eventually emerged the Catholic doctrine that Onan’s act was sinful because it interfered with the natural processes of creation. Hence, the sin of onanism. I am not aware of any biblical prohibition against masturbation by women, proving either that God was playing favorites, or that the authors of Genesis didn’t give much thought to the possibility that the act might be pleasurable to women. The upshot is that I am likely doomed, but Ms. O’Donnell is depriving herself without theological warrant.

  27. Sounds like another Sarah Palin to me. She “nearly completed” a BA at Fairleigh Dickinson University in 1993, and finally received one (in English literature – close enough to Journalism) in 2010.

    She’s young, looks sexy and sued an employer for gender discrimination and wrongful termination.

    We’ll have to see how well she can wink, but I’m encouraged.

    oh my god … Oh My God … OH … MY … GOD!

  29. At the risk of being mildly offensive or maybe inappropriate, when my wife and I read this she began rubbing her head moving slowly towards more sensual areas asking, “Ok, at what point is it adultery?” I laughed like an idiot.

  30. Now that Sarah Palin has officially endorsed the candidacy of Christine O’Donnell, we can boast at least two prominent politicians who are experts on the subject of diddling.

  31. QUOTE “This jackbooted thug and Tea Bagger hero being investigated by the DOJ in anticipation of prosecution for abuse of power and corruption thinks he has a chance at winning a national election.”

    LoL when talking about “uniformed ignorance” don’t forget to include the voters…after all if McCain, one of the ‘Keating Five’, from the biggest saving & loan scandal of the 80’s that cost taxpayers billions upon billions can win a primary to run for President, I have to say the “uniformed ignorance” of voters seems to be limitless!

  32. “That’s outstanding. Her victory in the Republican primary would be great news for the Democrats.”

    Sarah Palin’s endorsement is almost golden to a politician. Another delusion of the left to think that Palin is somehow death to smoochy. Keep on dreaming, you libs are going down and hard in November. Obamamommie is going to be a lame duck in January of 2011. Repeal of health care and death to stimulus are coming. You 20-30 percenters have pissed the other 70-80% of us off in a big way. It will be fun to watch as reality enters your [numb] skulls at light speed and your dreams of the mommie state die.

    Sic Semper Tyrannis

  33. Jeepers Creepers,

    Her victory being good for Democrats has nothing to do with Sarah Palin – Mike Castle is a virtual lock to win the general if he wins the primary. If Christine O’Donnell beats him then the Democrats have a real chance of retaining the seat. And I hope you didn’t believe Republican politicians claiming they would repeal health insurance reform and the stimulus – that’s just one more Republican lie. There is no way that Republicans can take both the House and the Senate by veto-proof majorities.

  34. Jeepers Creepers:

    Slarti is right repubs would have to pick up a minimum of 60 seats and some dems would have to vote with them to make it to 2/3 rds for override. Senate needs 67 but repubs are probably going to only pick up 10.

    So I think you need to keep dreaming and your [numb] skull needs to let in the light of reality.

    this one is for you Creepy Jeeper:

  35. The punishment for the sin of Onan is death so listing it with adultery (also punishable by death) makes legal sense to the American Taliban and their desire to institute Christian Sharia law in the US.

    However there is one tiny problem – death is called for the female partner in adultery but only a man can commit the sin of Onan. Maybe that is a feature & not a bug but we will probably have to wait for a final ruling from the Supreme Council to know how they plan to apply the law.

  36. McDonnell is the nut case that believes condoms wouldn’t prevent aids. She says this because aids virus was so small it would pass right through a condom.
    Yeah she sounds about right for the tea baggers.
    MTbarrel

  37. Swarthmore mom said,

    “The election is today. Mike Castle is saying if she beats him republicans will lose the seat.”

    Let’s hope he’s right and she beats him.

  38. Swarthmore mom,

    I just heard the news on CNN. (I’ve been watching Larry King interview Bill Maher.) I didn’t think O’Donnell would be the victor. Do you think any Democrats voted in the Republican primary?

  39. Blouise

    The Democrats certainly have more of a chance against O’Donnell than they did against Castle. It’s shaping up to be an insane political season…

    Elaine,

    Given the relative voter enthusiasm numbers I’m guessing that the Democrats didn’t play a role in her victory.

  40. We have closed primaries in Ohio too … if you want to vote in a primary you have to declare rep or dem … depending on the situation, I’ve been both.

  41. Slarti,

    I think they are a far more democratic process than closed primaries. It’s one of the few things Louisiana got right. However, they only apply to state elections because national party rules “forbid it” – just another reason that both the GOP and the DNC need to be dismantled IMO. Party rules governing electoral processes is manifestly undemocratic. It’s just too bad that the underlying issues of corruption in Louisiana negate the rest of the nation readily seeing the value of a system open to any party/candidate that can get the voters to the booths instead of the false dilemma presented in the GOP/DNC package. I think other states (CA comes to mind) have tried to institute the practice, but have failed under partisan pressure.

  42. Don’t some Independents typically declare themselves as R or D for a primary and then re-register as Independents? Could some Democrats in Delaware possibly have changed their party just for the primary? Just wondering.

    Rove is catching heat from Conservatives for criticizing O’Donnell. It looks like they’re starting to eat their own. Wonder if they’ll have a right-wing cannibal party before the elections in November?

    =============================================================

    Ssshhh … I’ll never tell ………..

  44. Swarthmore mom,

    If that’s true, I guess that I’m volunteering for President Obama in 2012… I’ve repeatedly told people that if Caribou Barbie becomes President I’m going to do my best to expatriate.

    Incidentally Jon Stewart just announced a ‘Rally to Restore Sanity’ in DC on October 30 (Colbert is having a ‘March to Keep Fear Alive’ at the same time). My favorite of the signs (which will be provided to rally goers who have better things to do than to make signs) he showed was ‘9/11 was an OUTSIDE job’. This just goes to show why he’s the most trusted (fake) newsman in America…

  45. This is going to play well with her fundie base:

    O’Donnell admitted in 1999 that she “dabbled into witchcraft. I hung around people who were doing these things. I’m not making this stuff up. I know what they told me they do. One of my first dates with a witch was on a satanic altar and I didn’t know it. I mean, there was a little blood there and stuff like that.

    We went to a movie and then had a little picnic on a satanic altar.” She said this on “Politically Incorrect”.

    After the clip was released, she canceled her scheduled Sunday appearance on CBS’ “Face the Nation” and FAUXNews this Sunday.

    If masturbation is adultery, I’m pretty sure the Jesus crowd considers witchcraft even worse.

  46. Wow. She’s totally nuts.

    Check this quote out:

    “O’DONNELL: And the Constitution is making a comeback. It’s simply unprecedented in my lifetime. I think it’s a little like the chosen people of Israel and the Hebrew scriptures, who cycle through periods of blessing and suffering and then return to the divine principles in their darker days. It’s almost as if we’re in a season of constitutional repentance. When our country’s on the wrong track, we search back to our first covenant, our founding documents, and the bold and inspired values on which they were based. Those American values enshrined in the Declaration provide the real answer.” [emphasis added]

    She apparently has never read the Declaration or the Constitution and if she has, she clearly doesn’t understand the English language. In particular I direct her to read until she comprehends the part of the Constitution that says “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” That little thing called the 1st Amendment that prohibits her from trying to enforce Christianity or any other religion as the standard by which our government operates.

    Thomas Jefferson would be furious with this moron.

  47. yep, no establishment of a national religion. religion per se is acceptable. Considering how our country was founded by people who were fairly religious and wanted to be left alone to pursue their religious beliefs unencumbered by government, her comments seem perfectly in line with the Constitution.

    Jefferson is furious all right, with most of the morons on this site.

  48. Yep. Jefferson would be upset with morons on this site. Morons like you and your troll buddies, Theocrat.

    The there are legal standards for what is permissible for involving state and religion and vice-versa.

    Lemon v. Kurtzman, 403 U.S. 602 (1971) has refined the Establishment Clause to be applied using the following test, known as the Lemon test (as in you can suck a Lemon if you think religion in government is permissible).

    In order for governmental action to not violate the Establishment Clause of the 1st Amendment of the U.S. Constitution it must meet the following criteria:

    1. The government’s action must have a secular legislative purpose;
    2. The government’s action must not have the primary effect of either advancing or inhibiting religion;
    3. The government’s action must not result in an “excessive government entanglement” with religion.

    The net effect of this test not only prohibits government from undue interference in religion, but prohibits religion from influencing government. Any proposed law, like some of the ones I’m certain Wacky O’Donnell is thinking of when she claims she can legislate morality, will not pass this test because even if it meets the first prong of the test (the easiest prong of the test to meet by the way), it has the effect of advancing her particular religion (violating the second prong of the test) and creating excessive government entanglement in religion by trying to force religious based rules upon people who have the first amendment right to have their religion of choice or no religion at all (thus violating the third prong of the test). The United States was formed as a secular nation, not a Christian theocracy, not matter what you delusional wishful thinking tells you.

    Also see Art. VI, cl. 3 of the U.S. Constitution which says “The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the Members of the several State Legislatures, and all executive and judicial Officers, both of the United States and of the several States, shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States.” [emphasis added]

    That would include any and all religions. Including any flavor of Christianity.

    For further reading on this topic:

    The Myth Of A ‘Christian Nation’

  49. what part of her quote says she is going to have a national religion?

    There are plenty of books written on both sides of that subject. There you go again. Rhubarb was right about you and your “logic” books.

  50. I saw your unfounded assertion and raised you one Constitutional article, one Constitutional Amendment and one valid Supreme Court case.

    I even threw in a news article on the subject of a Christian nation.

    What you got, smart guy?

    Facts got your tongue?

  51. there you go again, I ask you where she said she wanted to implement a national religion and you quote constitutional law which is the law of the land. Change it up and whirl it around.

    Show me where she says she wants a national religion.

  52. Buddha,

    While there is a whole lot of very disturbing crazy in the short quote you posted (the Palin is strong in that one…), it doesn’t seem to violate the 1st amendment, in my opinion.

  53. Legislating morality? Morales are a religious standard of behavior when being spoken of by a Fundamentalist Christian. There is a secular framework for discussing what constitutes right and wrong in human behavior and they are called ethics.

    She’s already proven that she’s irrational by saying masturbation is the equivalent of adultery when masturbation is self-pleasuring and adultery is something that requires at least three people (again) by defintion.

    adultery \ə-ˈdəl-t(ə-)rē\, n.,

    : voluntary sexual intercourse between a married man and someone other than his wife or between a married woman and someone other than her husband; also : an act of adultery

    Compare to masturbation (something you’re well versed in)

    masturbation\ˌmas-tər-ˈbā-shən\

    : erotic stimulation especially of one’s own genital organs commonly resulting in orgasm and achieved by manual or other bodily contact exclusive of sexual intercourse, by instrumental manipulation, occasionally by sexual fantasies, or by various combinations of these agencies

    Her “reasoning” is based in Biblical scripture. Probably in the Genesis tale of Onan which says “7 And Er, Judah’s firstborn, was wicked in the sight of the LORD; and the LORD slew him. 8 And Judah said unto Onan, Go in unto thy brother’s [Er’s] wife, and marry her, and raise up seed to thy brother. 9 And Onan knew that the seed should not be his; and it came to pass, when he went in unto his brother’s wife, that he spilled it on the ground, lest that he should give seed to his brother. 10 And the thing which he did displeased the LORD: wherefore he slew him also.” 38 Genesis, which is often misstated (also something which you know a lot about – misstating, which is a form of lie) as the shorter misquote “It is better to cast your seed in the belly of a whore than to spill it on the ground.” So not only is she irrational, she’s a Biblical illiterate (like all Fundamentalists).

    There is nothing in her statements to make anyone think that her attempts to legislate morality will be any less faith based than this specious “reasoning”.

  54. Troll,

    It’s more complicated than “national religion”.

    You can’t make laws that promote religious doctrines from any religion.

    You are a simple creature.

  55. Buddha,

    I agree that she almost certainly believes in (and if elected will try to implement) legislating morality, I just don’t think that the quote you posted (which paints a clear picture of her Biblical illiteracy) is direct evidence of it (and hence it is not in violation of the 1st amendment).

  56. Slarti,

    I didn’t say it was but upon re-reading I can see where you may have gotten that impression. I should have been more clear. Her comments while not per se a violation show a willingness to violate the Constitution based on her ideas of legislating “morality” based in her Christian fundamentalism. And then I showed why such laws would be a violation.

    Better?

    (Got to run, I’m racing the clock for one of the stops I have to make. bbl)

  57. Troll,

    I didn’t say she did. I said it showed how flawed her reasoning is in re morals and her statement on how you can supposedly legislate morality. You know, flawed reasoning, like the kind you show in abundance.

    Now I’m outta here.

  58. Buddha,

    All better. I want to concentrate on my reply to lottakatz about fractals anyway.

    Bob,

    Nice ‘Johnny Dangerously’ reference. ;-)

  59. Buddha,

    I posted this earlier on the Paladino thread:

    From Think Progress
    The Old Adventures Of New Christine
    http://thinkprogress.org/christine-odonnell-record/

    Here are some of the best Christine O’Donnell comments:

    O’Donnell warned about mice with ‘fully functioning human brains.’ “Now we’re using this to start cloning humans. … They are — they are doing that here in the United States. American scientific companies are cross-breeding humans and animals and coming up with mice with fully functioning human brains.’ [O’Reilly Factor, 10/16/07]

    O’Donnell is so fervently pro-truth that she wouldn’t lie to Nazis looking for Jews in her home. Appearing on Political Incorrect with Bill Maher, O’Donnell explained the
    importance of truth-telling, refusing to even entertain the notion of lying when a guest asked if she would tell the truth to Nazis looking for Jews hiding in her home. “I believe if I were in that situation, God would provide a way to do the right thing righteously. I believe that! … You never have to practice deception” [ThinkProgress, 9/15/10]

    O’Donnell called the Supreme Court a ‘constitutional monarchy.’ “It’s kind of like we have the nine people sitting there in Washington who have a constitutional monarchy and that is an abuse of the system but that’s the way that they push their agenda. And, if you’ll also notice, with all of these cases it’s a few people, a few people who oppose the masses.” [Savage Nation, 5/24/03]

    O’Donnell explained why there were never WMD found in Iraq by comparing the war to raiding a ‘crack house.’ “One of the biggest lies that’s going on is that we had no reason to go in. … If we were going to invade a crack house, and we said, ‘We’re going to invade this crack house. We’re going to raid this crack house.’ For six months, we gave them warning. And then you walk in and you go, ‘Hey, there’s no crack. There’s only these little pipes. Now, there’s no crack with the little pipes, so we can’t assume that these pipes are used for crack.’” [Hardball, 6/20/03]

    O’Donnell believes that spouses who have been cheated on possess compromised ‘purity.’ O’Donnell wrote in an article published in Cultural Dissident, “When a married person uses pornography, or is unfaithful, it compromises not just his (or her) purity, but also compromises the spouse’s purity.” [TPM, 9/7/10]
    O’Donnell believes the proper role of a woman is to ’submit’ to her husband. ”This is not about merely a Baptist doctrine. This is a biblical doctrine. And the passage from the Bible the Baptist article is taken from talks about a submissive family. And yet, what the media seems to be reacting to is the word “submit” in the wives.
