It has been interesting to watch the Republican primaries play out.
Out of the seven starting viable candidates, two seemed to have floated to the top. One denies he is a moderate in fear of alienating the right-wing base, and one says his political decisions will be guided by his strong religious faith. Both men have demonstrated high ethical and moral standards, but in assessing the candidate who says he would make decisions based on his strong religious faith, one might want to refer to his or her Bible.
Considering the consequences of such a statement, a voter might want to review 1 Timothy 2:11-12.
Verse 11: "Let a woman quietly receive instruction with entire submissiveness."
Never miss a local story.
Verse 12: "But I do not allow a woman to teach or exercise authority over a man, but to remain quiet."
A word of caution to all women: Be careful what you wish for.
