Last month, Operation Save America organized a week of anti-abortion protests in Wichita, Kansas, to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the Summer of Mercy, the famous 1991 abortion protest event. Participants in OSA’s event were treated every night to a lecture at their host church including, one evening, a talk about the “deception of the homosexual agenda” that touched on how Satan worked through Susan B. Anthony to get women into the workforce.
Bishop Otis Kenner, a Louisiana clergyman who does African-American outreach for OSA, told participants that through Satan, “Susan B. Anthony and the women’s lib and equal opportunity has devalued our women and has put them into the workforce”:
The Bible says in 1 Corinthians 11:3, Christ is the head of man, man is the head of the woman and God is the head of Christ. Satan has devalued our women. Proverbs Chapter 31 talks about the virtuous woman and talks about her occupation in the home. She rises up early before her family gets up to prepare meat for them. She goes into the marketplace, she sews, she cooks, she invests. But Susan B. Anthony and the women’s lib and equal opportunity has devalued our women and has put them into the workforce. Whoever told our women that to be a homemaker was subservient?
Kenner said that women should be “pampered” and have a “good time” as long as they do all of the childcare work and are home when their husband gets home from work:
What it looks like, I got steel-toe boots on with a bandana around my head because I’ve been in the workforce, and my wife comes home looking like me? I mean, I just believe that women were to be pampered and was to be loved. You should get your nails done as much as you want, your feet done as much as you want, I mean just go shopping and all that kind of stuff, take care of the children, watch over them, just have yourself a good time, just be home when I get home from work. That’s not so bad, is it?
“Here’s the deal,” he concluded. “Because Satan has broken the governmental authority of God, he had put the women in the workforce. Who are raising our children? The government. And our public schools, they our turning our children out one by one.”
