Not only was he upset that women were not submitting to their husbands, but Ware "cited gender roles as one example of churches compromising and reforming doctrines to accommodate to culture." Ware also said "it really has been happening for about the past 30 years, ever since the force of the feminist movement was felt in our churches,"

Why is equality so threatening to some of the evangelical Christians like Ware?
