Yes, if we can keep the little lady at home and don’t let her out too much, men can still be in charge.

On today’s episode of “WallBuilders Live,” David Barton explained that women were not given the right to vote when the Constitution was written because the Founding Fathers were trying to protect the institution of the family by giving every “family” a right to vote through the male head of the household.

Responding to a question from a listener who argued that the Founding Fathers denied women the right to vote not out of sexism but rather based on the biblical principle that a house divided against itself cannot stand, Barton said that this interpretation was exactly right because not allowing women to vote was designed “to keep the family together.”

    The founding fathers were wealthy men. They toyed with letting only male landowners vote and of course implicitly white men. That 3/5 of a human status they gave slaves was a stain on our Constitution from the start. Glad we vote now and the Republicans are going to get slammed from now on.
