GOP Candidate Questioned Careers for Women

Mark Harris (R), who won the GOP nomination in North Carolina 9th congressional district, once delivered a religious sermon questioning whether it was the “healthiest pursuit” for women to prioritize their careers in lieu of their biblical “core calling,” ABC News reports.

In one portion of Harris’ sermon, he tells parishioners that “only one title is given to a woman in all of scripture… the title given to a woman is ‘helper.'”

He then quoted from the Epistle of Paul to Titus, reading, “The older women likewise, that they be reverent in behavior… that they admonish the young women to love their husbands, to love their children, to be discreet, chaste, homemakers, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God not be blasphemed.”
