Virgin daughter offered by father in Christian magazine ad sparks outrage

A FATHER has sparked outrage by posting an advert in a Christian magazine offering his “godly, gorgeous, virgin” daughter.

Stephen Stewart took out a “son-in-law wanted” ad in Christianity Today magazine looking for a match for his daughter Rachel whose attributes he listed.

The ad sparked fury when it appeared online amid accusations it made Stewart sound like he was “trying to sell cattle” and Christianity Today has since apologised and withdrawn it.

The “son-in-law wanted” advert read: “”Her: godly, gorgeous, athletic, educated, careered, humorous [sic], travelled, bilingual, 26-year-old virgin.”

“You: unworthy, though becoming less so daily,” it added.

Stewart’s daughter Rachel insisted she wasn’t angry about her dad’s post, the Daily Beast reported.

Instead she reportedly felt her father was simply trying to help single people “seek the kingdom of God”.

Christianity Today’s editor-in-chief Mark Galli later tweeted an apology, however saying the ad was “rightfully seen as demeaning” and “in poor taste.”
