  •  Getting men to attend (1+ / 0-)

    As bobinson noted upthread, churches like this one market themselves to men.  The "submissive wives" line appeals to abusive men who see no problem with their own behavior, just hers.  While they officially don't condone abuse, these sects urge abused women to 'forgive' their abusers.  Jesus wipes the slate clean and the man is good to go on as before.

    In the old days, the local oligarchs could enforce church attendance by refusing to give credit to non-attendees.  In some rural areas that is still true.
