Far-right Christian activist: Women’s right to vote contrary to “a truly biblical worldview”

    Conservative Christian activist Scott Lively.

    Trump-loving far-right Christian Scott Lively claims that a woman’s right to vote is a “product of the Soviet Bolshevik Revolution” and runs contrary to “a truly biblical worldview”.

    Right Wing Watch reports:

    During Sunday’s “Breaking News Bible Study” program, which airs on radio station WETR in Knoxville, Tennessee, Trumploving radical anti-LGBTQ activist Scott Lively declared that the 19th Amendment, which granted women the right to vote, was “a product of the Soviet Bolshevik revolution” and runs contrary to “a truly biblical worldview.”

    “This is going to be very controversial,” Lively said, “but the women’s right to vote—the 19th Amendment—was actually a product of the Soviet Bolshevik revolution that was transported here to the United States in the 1920s.”

    The conservative Christian continued:

    “I’m not talking about taking away women’s right to vote. I’m just saying let me ask a question here: Would the voters of 1920—of course, these were all men—and would the women who were urging their husbands to vote have voted for the 19th Amendment if they knew that the highest achievement of women’s right to vote in the minds of women in 2020 would be the slaughtering of unborn babies?”

    “Would the women of the church of the 1920s be so inclined to pastor and lead churches if they knew that it would lead to rampant homosexuality and the approval of transgender pastors?” Richard May, Lively’s co-host, replied.

    Lively said:

    “This is the thing about having a truly biblical worldview. A truly biblical worldview has male authority—male authority established by God. And that doesn’t mean that women can’t vote, but what that does mean is that there is an order to civilization in which men and women are designed to be complementary halves of one whole but with distinct functions in society, and that male authority is an aspect of that that’s inseparable from the health of civilization.”

    Lively added:

    “Nobody talks about this. It’s verboten because of the political correctness and because so many Christian women don’t even understand this concept today. Feminism has crept into the church to such an extreme that you can’t have this kind of conversation anymore without being attacked by Christian women.”

    The Progressive Secular Humanist notes that as well as his work promoting Christian patriarchy and discrimination against LGBT people, Lively also ran for Governor of Massachusetts in 2014 and 2018. Earlier this month, the Christian activist claimed he would rather be beheaded than wear a mask to prevent the spread of COVID-19, and in May he “warned his fellow conservative Christians that they must prepare to wage a violent revolution against those who would use the coronavirus pandemic to impose socialism”.
