Stormy, these churches have NO desire for people to "settle into a suburban life with children." If they did, they would PAY BETTER. (I know people who work in church run schools and offices and they pay like shit.)
Churches do this to keep women barefoot and pregnant! It's simple. They don't give a shit about our economy, they just want things the way they were in the 1600s. Where people were afraid of the Church, yet were powerless to not be part of it, and did anything the Church said.
FTR, I live a nice suburban life with
children and some of the products that go with it, and I think this law is absolute bullshit. Some of us choose
to have marriages with kids and a nice house in the suburbs, but that doesn't mean we expect everyone else to want that. It's kind of unfair to those of us who live that way, to say we're being forced into it? Isn't it? Not to mention that most of us who do live this lifestyle need birth control just as much as hipster city dwellers.
I'm all for people living in the way they choose. And, not having a church or an employer tell them how to live. But, please don't put down those of us who do want a family. Few of us want a baby every other year until we go into menopause, even if we do want kids. I think as women, we are ALL under attack. And we need to stick together, not splinter among ourselves. This is NOT the fault of suburban families with kids, it's the Right trying to grab control. That's it.
