On Domestic Abuse
Rev. and Attorney
Robin Kimbrough, Esquire
October 13, 2009
“. . . purpose . . . to recognize the seriousness of domestic abuse as a crime and to assure that the law provides a victim of domestic abuse with enhanced protection from domestic abuse . . . the general assembly intends that the official response to domestic abuse shall stress enforcing the laws to protect the victim and prevent further harm to the victim, and the official response shall communicate the attitude that violent behavior is not excused or tolerated.
“We recognize that family violence and abuse in all its forms—verbal, psychological, physical, sexual—is detrimental to the covenant of the human community. We encourage the Church to provide a safe environment, counsel and support for the victim.”
God created woman from the man.
Women should keep silent; they are inferior.
Young women must be taught to be good homemakers and be obedient to their husbands.
Wives submit to their husbands.
Says that neither spouse can deny the other sex unless both agree.
The man is the head of the household.
Submission means learning from the husband. Shameful for women to speak in church.
To be a Christian wife, must submit to the husband.
