Came across this little gem in the First epistle to Timothy by the apostle Paul. Tim 2:11-14 (NIV)
11A woman should learn in quietness and full submission. 12I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man; she must be silent. 13For Adam was formed first, then Eve. 14And Adam was not the one deceived; it was the woman who was deceived and became a sinner.
Ahhh…just priceless…the unfailing word of a guy who literally knew Jesus. What, you want more???
As in all the congregations of the saints, women should remain silent in the churches. They are not allowed to speak, but must be in submission, as the Law says. If they want to inquire about something, they should ask their own husbands at home; for it is disgraceful for a woman to speak in the church. (1 Corinthians 14: 33-35)
And that’s ignoring the old testament…lets not even get started on the role of women there. Still want those ten commandments in a courthouse now??? The foundation for mosaic law which eventually led to this dribble…better to be a religious denier than a religious appeaser. Even if you have a need for an irrational belief and an imaginary buddy up in the sky…do you really want to also subjugate women the way he would have it. I think not. Patrick OUT!!!
What I’m listening to: Fleetwood Mac
Correction: Paul didn't know Jesus...he didn't like christians much but was a convert and then ended up writing half the new testament. My "b".
