Sydney Anglican women will be promising to submit to their husbands under a new marriage vow written by the diocese's liturgical panel, which has the imprimatur of the Archbishop, Peter Jensen.
Kevin Giles, a New Testament scholar in Melbourne, says... Jesus does not once mention the subordination of woman and says much in contradiction to this. Paul's comments over the subordination of women fit into the patriarchal culture of the day and are not the biblical ideal. The truth is that happy marriages today are fully equal, and unhappy marriages are ones where one or the other party is controlling.
Muriel Porter, a Melbourne academic and laywoman who writes on Anglican Church issues, said... submit was a more derogatory word than obey and had connotations of slavery. ''Frankly I'm horrified,'' she said. ''It is a very dangerous concept, especially in terms of society's propensity for domestic violence.''
Missy...Sydney Anglicans are a progressive group who don't think wives have to obey by carrying out the demands placed upon them by their husbands... That's because that might mean a woman may still retain some indepenent thought and spirit... No Missy...Sydney Anglicans want women to surrender themselves to the will and authority of a man, thus removing their identiry completely.
Now Missy when you marry me ... remember that sound Sydney Anglican theology...The male always leads, even if he's not necessarily the best dancer ... or knows how to dance at all!
