‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ Now Suggests Christians Want Child Brides

After slamming pro-lifers by literally presenting a woman “barefoot and pregnant” while chained last week, the feminist nightmare fantasy show “The Handmaid’s Tale” now suggests that pro-life Christians actually endorse the concept of child brides.

Here’s how LifeNews described the episode:

The May 16 episode “Seeds” features a ceremony known as “Pray-vaganza,” which is a term so ridiculous even the characters mock it. At this ceremony, the city is to honor the police force known as the Guardians, in particular Nick Blaine (Max Minghella), who has a secret relationship with Offred/June (Elizabeth Moss), Commander Fred’s (Joseph Fiennes) handmaid.

Fred’s hateful wife Serena (Yvonne Strahovski) learns of the affair between Nick and June and quickly arranges for the ceremony to turn into a mass wedding, much to June’s shock and dismay. But the reveal of the brides is even more depressing, namely how young they look.

During this creepy marriage of child brides, a priest even quotes scripture, not the Quran, mind you, whose author actually had a child bride, but rather Matthew 19:5 — “For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.”

“And therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother and shall cleave unto his wife,” the priest says. “And they shall be one flesh. I now pronounce you man and wife.”

“God blessed them. God said unto them ‘Be fruitful and multiply. Replenish the Earth.’ May the Lord order your steps now and all the days of your life.”

If the writers were to actually look at real-world facts for inspiration rather than warped fantasies ripped from the nightmares of Gloria Steinem, they would see that the highest rates of child brides in the world are in Muslim-majority countries like Niger, Chad, and Bangladesh.
