    Obviously sane, rational people can't--but wing lunatics can and do.

    and the key issue here is the misogyny.   Essentially, if women have access to birth control, they won't be chained to church, kitchen and children (which by the way, is based on a NAZI slogan about the correct role of women, which means these guys have more in common with Nazis than women do) and they'll want education and a means to support themselves. They thus won't be properly submissive and spend every waking moment catering to Master/Husband's every whim and stay with him even if he's a violent abuser (after all, he wouldn't be violent if she'd just cater to hi every whim).

    When I was in 4th grade my very Catholic parents informed me I WOULD go to college (I was an only child and while Dad attended college, he dropped out   6 credits short of graduation because he had a bleeding ulcer from years of heading from work in Stamford Conn. to NYU) and I MUST be prepared to get a job. Mom, who worked at least part-time during my childhood, pointed out that even if married happily and became a SaH Mo, ther was no guarantee that my hsuband wouldn't be killed or injured in an accident, and I had to be prepared to be the breadwinner.  SHe didn't see it as at all at odds with her religious faith.  Of course,s he probably wouldn't have been considered properly submissive enough for these guys--yet they were married for 62 years, very happily. Dad might not have een the best father in a lot of ways--but he adored my mother.

    The last time we mixed religion and politics people got burned at the stake.
