Women

Former U.S. senate chaplain, Peter Marshal lamented back in the 1940’s

“Godly womanhood…the very phrase sounds strange in our ears, we never hear it now.  We hear about every other type of woman: beautiful woman, smart woman, sophisticated woman, career woman, talented woman….  …but so seldom do we hear of a Godly woman—or of a Godly man for that matter. 

We believe woman come nearer to fulfilling their God-given function in the home than anywhere else.  It is much nobler thing to be a good wife, than to be Miss. America.  It is a greater achievement to establish a Christian home than it is to produce a second-rate novel filled with filth.  It is a far, far better thing in the realms of morals to be old fashioned, than to be ultra-modern. 
The world has enough women who know how to be smart.  It needs women who are willing to be simple. 
The world has enough women who know how to be brilliant.  It needs women who are willing to be brave. 
The world has enough women who are popular.  It needs women who are pure.

We need woman, and men too, who would rather be morally right, than socially correct.”
