Why do some "Christian" men feel that women are so far beneath them, they can ignore or treat women with a lesser standard? Is this a cultural thing? Something taught by extremely conservative preachers? I've run into this quite a bit since living in WV, and I'm confused and irritated by it. I've found this to be true of other local pastors, visiting missionaries, members of other churches, and even the husbands (who don't attend church) of some of our church ladies. They are rude, unkind, and openly dismissing of women, even while in our home, or receiving hospitality or meals (mostly provided by me.) They treat my husband completely the opposite. This has happened with all ages of men. Do churches and Bible colleges (or even parents!) not teach people basic manners anymore?
