Christian Mom: To Avoid Domestic Abuse, Wives Shouldn’t Be So “Quarrelsome”

Always eager to stir the pot, Christian blogger Lori Alexander (who, to the shock of many, is real) has some thoughts when it comes to domestic violence: Ladies, it’s probably your fault.

Given her vitriol for all things feminist — or even remotely decent — her words are exactly what you’d expect from someone who believes a woman’s place is in the home.

A wife has a much greater chance of being abused if she is quarrelsome, contentious, & abusive towards her husband rather than if she is kind, loving, & submissive. God’s ways are for our good, NOT for our harm.

A wife has a much greater chance of being abused if she’s with an abuser. Full stop.

No one deserves to be mistreated, and a marital spat isn’t grounds for violence. Abuse is always the abuser’s problem. Ask any woman who’s ever endured violence from her partner: Being kind doesn’t work. Not burning dinner doesn’t work.

Want to stop an abuser? Try a restraining order. (And even those can fail.)

For someone who holds men to such a high standard — they must represent God in order to spiritually lead the family — Aunt Lydia Lori sure doesn’t think much of them on a personal level. She seems to believe their malevolent behavior can be easily excused with a simple “She made me do it.”
