Protecting Women: “Saving Face”

Two weeks ago I spoke to the power of Christ’s word when he told people in Mark that a man must leave his mother and father and “cleave to his wife.” That is powerful – revolutionary actually – for the Middle Eastern culture into which it was spoken, a culture that held women as property and the male line as supreme. That battle continues. I was struck by this documentary and the continued need to ensure the protection of women.  As New Church theology clearly points out, the love of dominating destroys all hope of love in a marriage.  Marriages can survive many things, but not one partner controlling the other.
