AMES, Iowa (AP) -- The Bible tells wives to be submissive to their husbands. If she were president, would that apply to Michele Bachmann?
In Thursday's Republican debate in Iowa, the Minnesota congresswoman was asked if she would be submissive to her husband.

I think she should have responded with:
“Sounds like a question more suitable to Hillary Clinton.”
lol. Who the hell asked that?
Sounds more like a Soviet show-trial.
She said she loves and respects her husband and that the meaning (to her) of being submissive means being respectful to her husband. I liked her answer.
She knocked it out of the park.
in the original language its “Wives be supportive of their husbands” That’s why God made Eve from Adam’s Rib, not from his head to be above him, not from his foot to be beneath him but a companion to walk beside him.
A man is the head of his household, but its a stupid man who chooses a companion who won’t put her back to the wall with him and take on the world. Its also a stupid man who chooses a companion from which he will not take counsel from in all things.
Then they follow up with an attack on Bachmann implying that Christianity is a sexist religion which keeps women subservient. And she handled that one well.
But Fox was disgusting.
Who the hell asked that?
That punk, Byron York.
The reason AP didn't make the headline "Bachmann says husbands should be treated with respect" (her actual answer), is because screaming liberal bitches would have ripped down their buildings and slaughtered them for advertising such an offensive, repulsive heresy.
Wow. That is an absurd question. What a putz.
They tried to make Bachmann look foolish from the time that idiot Chris Wallace set Pawlenty on her, but she managed to handle herself very well.
She hsa my support, my vote, my contribution and my admiration. She is a class act.
Incidentally, I REALLY liked the way Gingrich put that ass Chris Wallace in his place and Herman Caine followed up with a second shot at that bastard.
Wallace looked discomfited and ticked off throughout the rest of the show.
I hope his heartburn keeps him awake all night.
Might as well have been asked by the mouth of the snake, ‘hath God said’..... Unbelievers are blinded by their own foolish arrogance. This world would be a far greater place if we heeded the Almighty’s wisdom instead of rebellion against Him.
Another turdbrain trying to be the “smartest” guy in the room!
New International Version (NIV)
22 Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands as you do to the Lord. 23 For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior. 24 Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything.
25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her 26 to make her holy, cleansing[a] her by the washing with water through the word, 27 and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless. 28 In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. 29 After all, no one ever hated their own body, but they feed and care for their body, just as Christ does the church 30 for we are members of his body. 31 For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.[b] 32 This is a profound mysterybut I am talking about Christ and the church. 33 However, each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband. http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Ephesians+5%3A22-33&version=NIV
Posting the entire passage since it seems the press and left in general always remove this from its context as though it is a one way street to hold women to be inferior, which it is not - the husband also has his own great responsibility that he must give to the wife as well.
Fox News owes Congresswoman Bachman a Major League Appology on all of their shows tomorrow (if not tonight) for that punk York’s question. I turned off the debate when I saw his next question was about gay marriage. Democraps never get these questions in a debate. I’ve had it with Fox News. What a bunch of low-life establishment clowns they are.
The panel was an embarrassment. I never understand why Fox News has a reputation as a conservative outlet. It’s not. I consider it anti-conservative and pro-Left.
I couldn’t agree more.
I guess my mistake is judging from FOX from Fox and Friends in the morning and Sean Hannity.
The rest of them are as liberal as they come.
Even Kraphammer gets on my nerves at times. But at least they dumped that idiot Bushbot Fred Barnes, another of their nebbishes.
A biblical answer would be in the vein of “in things marital, yes, short of the point of disobeying an explicit command of God.” Sarah Palin as a faithful Christian would likely say something similar. It would have zilch to do with how either one would carry out a presidency.
