Rep. Steve Pearce (R-NM): "The Wife Is To Voluntarily Submit To Her Husband"


Contrary to what Think Progress is emphasizing, the problem here is not that this dude is "offending" women...  The problem is that he's a bigoted freaking lunatic.
Washington Post reports that a chapter from Pearce’s new book emphasizes wives and husbands each have roles in the household, and the wife’s role is obedience. “The husband’s part is to show up during the times of deep stress, take the leadership role and be accountable for the outcome, blaming no one else,” Pearce writes. “The wife’s submission is not a matter of superior versus inferior; rather, it is self-imposed as a matter of obedience to the Lord and of love for her husband.”
Why emphasis people being offended in a story about a U.S. Congressman believing some insane sexist horseshit?

Anyway, quibbling with TP's emphasis aside...holy crap, what a nut.

It's not that he's saying something "offensive"... It's that he's saying something idiotic and patently false.
