Abused Women Should Stay in their Marriage-Another Reason Rick Warren Sucks

From sermons of Warren via Slog

The Bible answer is yes. Does God expect me to stay in a miserable marriage, and why would he do that to me? I often say to people when they're facing this decision, really, you're choosing your pain in this moment because it's going to be painful either way. If you stay in your marriage there is the opportunity for reconciliation and for the loss of pain, but there is going to be short-term pain on the way there. ... There is lifelong pain in divorce. ... I wish there was a way to say there is a choice here where you're not going to have pain but there is pain in relationships. Now, God understands that... He can be with us in our pain and he can comfort us, he can strengthen us, he can give us perspective. He can also give us wisdom. Does God expect me to live with this pain? No. I think he expects us to ask for wisdom to do the things that would cause the pain to begin to be solved. ... The Bible says the husband is to sacrifice for his wife and the wife is to respect her husband and if that doesn't happen you have the right to keep pushing for that.

Oh, please. Keep on being abused, even if that means you're getting beat up or some other heinous action, but just pray that your hub *gets* it.  That's what's wrong with religious instruction that wants to keep women in a position where, if a male leader says so and they can't find a Bible *out*, they should stay in a relationship that could injure or perhaps even kill them.

Yes, I understand that there are some religious who believe this is appropriate. Run by people like Rick Warren. But that's doesn't mean those religions or that *leader* deserve any respect.
