Because supposedly the Bible says so.
But you know, I am more influenced by science than the kind of things
That really happened. My mom would read newspapers and look at the news on tv and when election day rolled around, she and my dad would go to the polling place, and they were back in like 20 minutes or so, and the whole family unit was in no way disturbed. I even vote to this day, and have blessedly been married for like, over a decade. It really doesn't screw anything up at all, except, you know, my dad is a labor Democrat and my mom is an economic liberal and well, me and the spouse are godless social liberals so maybe Barton's real problem is that , if spouses are what they call "unequally yoked", liberal wives might cancel out the votes of conservative husbands. Huh. So in which case wives shouldn't get concerned.
Is it just me, or does it seem like Barton just selected some Bible nonsense to pretend like there is a reason for women to not vote to benefit a particular party? Because that is what it looks like to me. How very like he tried to make the Bible be the tool of his preconceptions. I'm not sure that Book should mean whatever people think it should, you know? I also don't know what is stopping the Bible from meaning just anything, anyway, so there's another thing.
