I’m still working on the “Myth of Equality” post, but in the mean time I felt this was relevant to the discussion.

I was responding to an email from a reader the other day when I glanced at the ever-present Google Ads sidebar showing "related" links adjacent to my inbox. What was one of the links shown there, based on the contents of the email exchange about the biblical meaning love and submission as described in Ephesians 5?

“Stepford Wives”

I kid you not.

It’s a very sad statement indeed. I don’t know what algorithm Google uses to derive its linked content, but whatever it is, it can’t be good. Unfortunately, I think this is an all too common misunderstanding of the Bible’s take on marriage. I would venture to say that even some inside the church would use this comparison.

How about you. Do you subscribe to the Ephesians 5 = Stepford Wives equation?
