Tony Rapu, a Christian minister from Nigeria, is the kind of guy who gives sermons on Twitter with a series of short messages grouped together with a hashtag. Last week, he spoke about married men with tweets such as this:
That’s nice. That’s pleasant. That’s powerful.
Today, Rapu decided to give advice to #MarriedWomen… but it was a very different kind of advice. It boiled down to: “Obey your husbands because he can do no wrong, you inferior objects, you.”
Have a look at Rapu’s four hour-long Bible-inspired train wreck:
I’m sure women everywhere can’t wait to fix all their problems.
Stephanie Drury‘s response was just pitch-perfect:
What’s scary is that this isn’t the work of some fringe radical. This is the same sort of men-rule-over-their-wives thinking advocated by people like Pastor Mark Driscoll. It’s not at all uncommon in Christian culture.
Not all of Rapu’s retweets came from his critics, after all.
