A Woman's Place?

Hubby and I were having lunch today and were discussing politics and religion. Hubby and I love eachother very much but have slightly differing views in these areas. He's a recovering Republican and Agnostic and I'm a Bleeding Heart Liberal and Atheist. Anyhow, we were chatting and laughing and debating eachother while we ate our lunch. We were having a great time when the elderly man at the table next to us said, as he was getting up to leave:

"You see, that's what's wrong with the world today. Women who have opinions and don't acknowledge that the man is always right and should make the decisions. Once women know their place again, this country will once again be great. God bless you and good luck with that uppity one. If I were you, I'd show her who was boss with a nice whuppin'".

Nice eh? And to think we didn't respond. We just sat there with our mouths open going "gaaah".
