"Christian husbands: Don't pay for milk if you own the cow."

Why buy the cow, when you can get the milk for free?

This phrase was coined to reflect the reality that when you make sex outside of marriage culturally acceptable, less people will marry, and the statistics today prove it. The most literal and historical meaning of this phrase meant “why marry a girl, when she will give you sex without marriage?”...

I can hear it now – “What about those boys! This is not fair that all the pressure is on the women”. Yes the Scriptures command BOTH men and women to not engage in sex before marriage, and yes they did speak to us as young men about being godly men of integrity, about being gentlemen. However, if you examine the Scriptures closely, you will see that God places the greater burden on the woman to refuse the man. In the Old Testament law, a woman could be executed for not being a virgin when she was married, whereas there was no such punishment for a man that was not a virgin. I realize this goes against our modern “gender equality” ideas, but the Bible supports no such notion.

But once you have bought the cow, you ARE supposed to get the milk for free.

One of the problems we face today in the Christian community (but it certainly is not limited to Christians) is that often times, even after we have waited, and “bought the cow” (married our wives), our wives expect us to “buy the milk” as well. I recently wrote a post responding to a Christian teacher’s false belief, that in marriage men do in fact have to “buy the milk”(earn sex), even after “buying the cow”(marrying a woman).

A quick word on the “cow analogy” before we continue – in no way am I meaning disrespect toward women, or saying that cows are somehow equal to women, or that women are less human than men. But Biblically speaking, a wife does belong to her husband (men paid a “bride price” and one the terms for husband in the original languages of the Bible is “baal” which means “owner or master” (e.g. Proverbs 31). I Peter 3 says “Sarah obeyed Abraham, calling him lord[master]“....

So they call their partner a cow, and they are surprised when she doesn't put out for them? Not only a cow, but a chattel. Hmmm..., that's a tough one. :ask:

So if the cow(woman) does not get sufficient grass(money/jewelry), could that mean the husband is not going to be able to milk the cow?
Mighty confusing these Christian nuptial-agrarian arrangements.

And why then are Christians so disapproving of those who pay for their milk in single transactions? Jesus said you're only supposed to buy wholesale?

No mention of pasteurization either. Still, I suppose milk from Holy Cows doesn't need it.

I like the way he says the cow thing is just an analogy, but that Christian men really do own their wives. That's doublethink in a nutshell.

It is double-something. I don't think we can dignify the mental process as thinking without perverting the meaning of thought. More like the emergence of a big smelly mind-turd. the bigoted shit-head. :thumbup:

Perhaps it's best to sample the milk from a wide selection of cows to see which milk you prefer and when you have found the milk that pleases you best then you should purchase that particular cow.

Just to be contrary, in this analogy the cow is a chap and milk is, er his milk. Or whatever, it's all bullshit.

:shock:

He goes on to give advice on "how to stop this wicked behavior."

You must see this as God sees it, as an act of rebellion against your authority over her (and her body), and by extension as an act of rebellion against God himself, because he has given her to you. You need to rebuke your wife’s sinful behavior.


and then

This is a form of discipline, and discipline is never pleasant, but all authority figures must discipline those who are under their authority from time to time.


:o :nono:

So then I went to the 'About Me' page. Turned out he was divorced. :coffee:

But it reminded me of this 80s classic:

Well is he really wrong (in context of "Biblical" Christianity) if he's following the Bible on gender roles in marriage?

I don't know about a sea of cows, but there are certainly cows in the sea.

Good to know that Christian men can rape their cows on land, at sea, and in the air! God is great! :clap:
