Back in 2008, Violet Socks wrote:"It is entirely possible to be a deeply committed Christian and simultaneously reject the old-fashioned notion that wives must obey and submit. Many Christian denominations have long since relegated the wifely submission business to the dust-heap of obsolete doctrine, along with various other antiquated rules and regulations. The New Testament, like the Old, is chock-full of archaic notions and sheer weirdness that no one dreams of obeying anymore."
Socks also pointed out New Testament verses that many Christians ignore, such as prohibitions against braiding hair, against wearing gold or pearls, and against taking oaths. Since there are quite a few pictures of Christine O'Donnell wearing pearls, we assume that she is one of the pick and choose Christians when it comes to which parts of the Bible to follow.
O'Donnell's perception and image of marriage is different from our view of marriage. We believe some of the keys to a successful, long lasting marriage are mutuality, friendship, respect, and equality.
