Ninety-two years ago this week, President Woodrow Wilson announced his support of the 19th Amendment to the US Constitution which banned all sex-based restrictions on suffrage. Today women enjoy the right to vote.
I am often annoyed by Christian fundamentalists who claim to base their morality on the Bible. Do Christians consider what bearing the Bible might have on the matter of women's suffrage? Do they not realize how far removed biblical ethics often are from their everyday "God-given" moralities and human rights?
Let me ask you--What does the Bible say about women's suffrage? Do the scriptures give women democratic rights--the right to vote and to hold authority on par with men?
A few passages to consider are Numbers 30:6, 9 / Isaiah 3:12 / I Corinthians 14:34ff / I Timothy 2:11,12
