Ink, there's no way to read those verses and think to self - women are not subservient, 2nd class citizens. Absolutely not! I mean what woman in their right mind would not want to be considered property by virtue of a father handing over his daughter to another man in holy matrimony? While it's fallen out of modern use, the bride often vowed to obey much like a good dog.

Wrong. There are also changes in anatomy and physiology, changes in consciousness, legal status, and for some spiritual changes.
But you knew that, as it's been pointed out many times here.

My Catholic Grandma began studying Paganism later in life. I have her tabletop Bible with Jesus' words in RED -- a collector's item I intend to keep until I'm done with it.
Why are you so dense? Why do you let your imagination run wild instead of being open to ways different from your own? You're a horrible name calling, judgmental, asexual individual who is too chicken to reveal their screen name everyone would know.
When I go to publish my life story, I'll let you know first.
No wonder you are so confused.

I would have you know, that the head of the woman is the man;

Nevertheless, in the Lord woman is not independent of man, Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.
you get anything but "Man rules women" and "women are screwed" You're an idiot.

Seems pretty self-explanatory to me.

Why do you profess belief in an outdated book? The entire book was written by Jewish people 2000 years ago. Now you are picking and choosing what is to be believed and lived by and what is not? WHY does the bible contain the OT in the first place? The NT is as misogynistic as the OT. Can't you read?
If nobody is following old Jewish law then nobody is following the bible...correct?
I think many parts of the Bible transcend time and are appicable today. Basically if Jesus said it, I believe.

Not so much as in past decades, but much progress remains for any semblance of equality. You only have to look around the abortion threads to know that many believe women who sleep around should pay the piper by giving birth. What happens after that doesn't seem to matter nearly as much. Perhaps not at all?

That's the impression I get from both Inky's and Sassy's posts as well. They really don't like it when their faith-based "all women were meant for marriage/motherhood" dogma is challenged, especially by women who enjoy being single and who have no children BY CHOICE.
So they have to say that single/childfree (the term for no kids by choice) women are "angry, bitter, lonely," etc. when such is usually NOT the case at all.
No we said some single childless women are happy but you don't seem to believe that women married and raising families are happy too. We want everybody to be happy.

Sure it is, within the bounds of the Catholic Church, at least. Of course you'd prefer that the women you're trying to CON with this nonsense not know just HOW patriarchal it really is until they're tricked into joining. Too bad.

I know exactly how patriarchal this toxic institution is. That's why I kicked all of it to the curb 25+ years ago, and the unwanted baggage of all gods, religions and churches while I was at it.

It's wonderful how much freedom a woman has when she ISN'T mentally chained by a regressive and oppressive religious institution.

How do words in a book transcend time?

Too bad there isn't a shred of evidence to support what you believe jesus said. You might have a leg to stand on.

You're right, there is no way that those verses do not place women below men.

Hi Bitner!:::waving to Junket too:::

Absolutely; those biblical verses definitely put women below men, treating them as 2nd class citizens.

What's hilarious is watching Inky and Sassy trying to outdo each other in trying to CON us into believing these verses don't put women in a subservient status. Next thing you know, either Sassy or Inky will say something really stupid; like "submission and subservience are 'good' for women." @@

Hi AJ :)

According to a Catholic article I just read, America has moved away from patriarchy (not sure I believe that, though)... but it would do well to get itself right back into it, don'tcha know? With patriarchy comes virginity and chastity, the sacrifice of celibacy. All good sexual morals, y'know? It's an interesting read.

According to the article I just posted, it appears the worshipers are being spoon fed that man and woman are equal... provided they follow the patriarchal marriage. It's that whole concept of man coming from God, woman from man, man from woman through birth.

Totally circular logic and therefore illogical. But that *is* what they're being taught. Just in time for a new generation of young women to be told their priorities and goals for life.

Greetings Ocean!

Katie, it's a whole new ballgame with the current generation. Divorce is a piece of a paper, much like getting married. Seems to not mean much and exchanging vows is like pledging allegiance to the flag. Seems by rote - words that mean nothing iow.

What I don't get, and never will, is why women can never win. If they stay at home - lazy. If they work and place child(ren) in day care - selfish.

It's not right. Women should support other women regarding personal choices. We've come a long way baby, but we have a long way to go.

I have no doubt sASSY and Inky really do believe this backward nonsense. It truly boggles the mind what religious brainwashing, usually done from early childhood onward, can do to women. I'm just glad I spared myself from that insanity by rejecting all of it a couple of decades ago.
Please tell me what would improve my life if I adopted your views.

Of course, if someone is not exactly like them, they have to believe that something dreadful happened in their past to make them different (and wrong, in their eyes), and that they suffer for being "different".
Not at all but on here you all tend to be angry, frustrated and man hating. Not one of you has anyhing nice to say about children or men. Some lifeexperience has created that attitude.
