Kim Burell is a Hypocrite

Standard

Let a woman learn quietly with all submissiveness. I do not permit a woman to teach or to exercise authority over a man; rather, she is to remain quiet. For Adam was formed first, then Eve; and Adam was not deceived, but the woman was deceived and became a transgressor. Yet she will be saved through childbearing—if they continue in faith and love and holiness, with self-control. -Timothy 2:11-15

womenbibleThe Bible has oppressed woman for centuries. It left them without any rights and susceptible to abuse or worse at the hands of men and with little or no way to escape it. In fact there are still many places in the world where this is the case.

Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife even as Christ is the head of the church, his body, and is himself its Savior. Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit in everything to their husbands.  -Ephesians 5:22-23

So if it is Kim Burell OK with using the Bible to make gay men and women sinners then it should be OK for her spouse to deny her rights and abuse her? She is a Christian after all. Of course that is not OK and neither is her attitude about another human being’s feelings.

This whole issue should be to the forefront the bigger issue of religion and equality.

Either way any woman using the Bible to justify anti-gay sentiment is at least guilty of cherry picking. However if miss Burell truly understands her religion then she is a hypocrite and deserving of the backlash she is getting.
