I hesitated writing about this subject as I know it may ruffle some feathers. However, I read my "cousin's" blog last night and about fell off my chair realizing that she holds the same beliefs I do in this area. I thought I was the ONLY one. So, her writing gave me encouragement to let you all know how I feel about women voting.
I think we should vote...according to how our husbands (or fathers, for single women) vote. The reason women fought for their right to vote was mainly because they lost confidence in their husbands and fathers. Women didn't trust the votes of the men. So, they took matters into their own hands - usurping authority over a man. They no longer reverenced their husbands (or fathers) by allowing him to lead his home in the voting decision.
Many Christians women who are against feminism will support it as they vote for whomever THEY want at the polls - with no consideration of how their husbands are going to vote.
We women have the right to vote, therefore, I believe it is our responsibility to vote and allow our voice to be heard - as long as our voice is ringing in unison with our husband's.
We have the right to vote. We have the responsibility to vote. We are commanded by God to reverence, obey, and honor our husbands. Is it honoring him when you say, "Well, I don't think your choice is a good one, so I will make my own decision in this election"?
"Would you vote for Obama, if your husband did? How could you, as a Christian, live with that?" you may ask. For the record, my husband isn't voting for Obama - I don't even know if he's voting for McCain. He may choose a 3rd party - a throw away vote. I will vote the same. Why? Because I don't have to answer for whom I vote for. I have to answer to God for how I have reverenced my husband and how I've lived my life as a Christian woman.
Get out there and vote...all the while honoring your husband.
