This Morning I Heard…

About the “Obedient Wives” club in Malaysia, while listening to NPR radio this morning.  Are you serious!! This is yet another misinterpretation of a holy book. A local women’s group is preaching Polygamy and the obedience of wives to their husbands.  Apparently this is a good way to deal with the social issues blighting Malaysia and a way to help cut down on the rising divorce rate in that country.  This story was amazing and entertaining to a degree to listen to, I won’t go too much into the story here, but please take 5 minutes (actually 4:08) to listen to the story on NPR, it’s an interesting listen and will remind us of how fortunate we are in the western world to not be dictated to in this way.  We are free spirited, fabulous, and intelligent woman who are able to excercise our God given freewill.

  1. I agree with you that we’re blessed and I saw something like this on TV sometime ago. It was in Afghanistan where women were being sentenced to 20-30 years in prison for having sex before marriage and falling in love with men who were not assigned to them as future husbands. It was crazy. I couldn’t imagine going to jail becuase I fell in love. And 30 years? WOW!

    • I totally agree with you. It’s hard for us to wrap our minds around the fact that there are countries in the world, where you could go to prison just for falling in love with the “wrong” person.
