‘Christian’ Site: Wives Must Have Sex ‘No Questions Asked’: ‘There Is No Such Thing as Marital Rape’

A sex advice website for married Christians tells its readers that women must never deny sex to their husbands with “a flat no” because “her body does belong to her husband.”

The Biblical Gender Roles website told its readers earlier this month that “some women” think it’s “selfish for a man to have sex with his wife, knowing she is not in the mood.”

“In fact, some claim if a man has sex with his wife when she is not in the mood this is rape,” the article says. While insisting that a husband should never “force himself physically on his wife,” the author points out that “a Christian wife should never give her husband a flat no, BUT she can humbly and gently ask for a delay.”

But, any request for a delay “must be done humbly and respectfully, and always with the attitude in mind that her body does belong to her husband.”

The anonymous author goes on to say that a “wife does not have the right to stand and deny her husband access to her body” and can only ask for a delay if she has a “legitimate” reason. Of course, “the judge of what is legitimate or not is her husband.”

“Despite American laws to the contrary, Biblically speaking, there is no such thing as ‘marital rape,’” the author insists. “In the Scriptures the only way rape occurs is if a man forces himself on a woman who is not his property.”

Atheist blogger Adam Lee went after the anonymous Biblical Gender Values writer, writing on Daylight Atheism that, “If BGR says he doesn’t endorse violence or rape, that’s only because moral progress has influenced his thinking to the point where he glimpses, dimly, the awfulness of the belief system he professes.”

“But it hasn’t influenced him enough for him to do the right thing and reject it entirely as the misogynist atrocity it is,” Lee stated.

    The author of that statement is sick. Using that same logic, I’m sure he must support a man having incestuous relations with his children since under biblical teachings they are his property too.

    Why don’t you go over to the Middle East and live….This is not an American way. Women are not property….
