Call me antiquated. Call me backwards. But it doesn’t thrill me to see a woman leading our country.
(For those of you who are out of the loop, Australia swore in their first female Prime Minister today.)
Call me old fashioned but as a Christian woman I believe men should be in leadership roles: in our homes, in our Churches, in the workplace and most definitely in our Parliament. Not that women CAN’T do these things, but that it’s not the role God gave us.
Okay, just to dig myself in even further, it isn’t just about leadership roles for me. It also breaks my heart to see mothers in the workforce, leaving the raising of their children to others. They already have the most important and fulfilling role in their life and yet they choose, or succumb to pressures, to abdicate their role as keepers at home.
It disappointed me to see news reports of young girls relating their excitement about the role of Prime Minister now being a “conquered” domain for women. I viewed their coveting of this role with great sadness.
I’m raising my little men to lead, protect and provide for their families. I do hope there will be little women left who cherish their roles as their husbands’ ‘help meets’ and as full time mothers and teachers to their children.
And now I’ll take cover and find a safe place to hide…
