Female pastor says feminism in marriage is rubbish

Meanwhile, previously reported that a female pastor had explained why feminism in marriage is rubbish.

In a video that was shared on her Instagram page with the handle @pastormildred, the Christian cleric said women should practice their feminism in the office but not in marriage.

According to the pastor, feminism in marriage is not God's word, adding that women should be obedient to what God says.

In her words:

"Feminism in marriage is rubbish. Yes I said it and I'm going to say it again. Feminism in marriage is not God's word. You can be doing your feminism in the office, because yes, if you are a woman and you work like a man, you should be paid like a man.
