She quoted the Bible first and we were all responding to that.
So?

What's that got to do with JM chastising somebody about misrepresenting what another says? She did that just after she chastised Morgana for YOUR words. Why won't you admit to JM those were your words, Ink?

JM says Morgana was incorrect. Since Morgana quoted your words, JM says YOU are incorrect. Why don't you deal with her about this? Why keep digging in your heels and misrepresenting what Morgana did?

Your inability to act on this, along with your willingness to distract about posted bible verses does nothing but highlight YOUR deceit.

Or hadn't you noticed?

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." @@
Wh do you assume that if you had a husband, you would have to live by 2,000 year old Jewish rules? Can't you come into modernity with everyone else?

The 10 commandments still work? How so and what do you mean "work"? Do you refrain from coveting your neighbors Ox or Donkey?
Breaking the "thou shalt not commit adultery" worked for Gtown. In that instance, violating one of the commandments made his life better.
Honor thy mother and father? Yeah, i'm sure those who were sexually & physically abused by a parent need to adhere to that.
You find the evil in everything. Maybe you should give up on life and crawl in a hole for the rest of your days. Then you won't have to deal with anything or use any common sense.

No it didn't. You weren't part of the conversation. Those who were spouting how they love their freedom know who I was talking about but if you want to put yourself with them go ahead it's your choice. I haven't posted to you in days.

This is tiresome but to give you an answer;

Yes it is a good idea to not covet any of your neighbor's
possesions, be it ox donkey, horse, dog or new 50" screen TV.

Not committing adultry is syill a good idea.

And finally honoring your parents is a good idea.

Physically and sexually abusesive parents are either sick or evil and not worthy of honor due to their own efforts.

Why is common sense so rare?

Excuse me, but since when has any of us said anything about 'hating men' OR our children? None of us hate MEN sweetie - we loathe and despise the way MEN have assumed control of our >collective< lives for the last few thousand years.
And I happen to love my children at LEAST as much as you love yours. It's just that in order to have them, I had to sacrifice the first one...and if you think I enjoyed that, you're out of your bloody mind....but I'll be DAMNED if I'm going to let a bunch of do-goody self-absorbed busybodies take away the right to that option from my daughter in law, or my granddaughters, or my sisters, or me.

Don't like it?(I know you don't.)

For the millionth time that was the culture back then and parent lineages and family structure was very important. Men were expected to care for wives and children unlike today. You can set up any rules you want in your own house and are not bound by 2,000 year old Jewish laws.
What is expected of men today? If I understand you correctly, the Old Testament should be discarded? If that's the case, why do I so often hear Catholic priests quoting from the OT?

Ink, you cannot have it work both ways. It's either old/out of date to be discarded, or it's the word of God and every single sentence in the Bible matters.

No, the pope spoke out against abortion but tHe church wasn`t politically active in tryiNg to block women's rights, fucwit. The scholarship money paid for my SECULAR education...I took no religious classes at all, and the money stayed entirely on campus. Please stop trying to tell me about MY life, idiot.

After 1973 and RvW the Catholic church was most definitely politically active in the anti-abortion movement. And that was well before you would have begun attending college ( you forget you've posted your age here ). The scholaship money the college received was in your name. That was the point.
It was the same institution you despise today. The fact that the administration of the specific school you attended did not voice the current church position did not alter the fact that money in your name was going to the church, and you were receiving and benefitting from an education received from an institution you despised.
Hypocrisy epitomized.

Childbirth can be lethal, you clueless moron. If a doctor decides aborting is safe, I don`t care when it is done.

The definition you gave noted knowledge OUTSIDE of what is known, so it can`t be found in anyone's mind. Gaining knowledge from another's mind is telepathy.

Don't worry li`l fella. Someday you`ll comprehend something.

Of course he should. But that's not what you said. You said you agreed with restrictions because the risk of abortion at that point was roughly the same as normal chilbirth. Your scenario did NOT involve a physician facing the choice of performing a procedure more dangerous than NOT doing it. Moreover, your subsequent statement about not minding if all restrictions were removed indicates that your supposed concern over a physician's dilemma over medical risk was an outright sham.
You favor a woman's right to personal risk assessment and the right to choose to abort at ANY time. You've said so.
So there is absolutely no reason for you to agree with any restrictions for ANY reason. A woman at any time would always have the choice to not abort given her assessment of the risks involved.
You're a phony. And you facked ap. And you're STILL squirming to avoid admitting it.
<quoted text>
Sorry, stupid. You were wrong. The definition of clairvoyance I provided indicates it is a form of extrasensory perception or the the alleged power of perceiving things ( past, present or future ) beyond the natural range of the senses. That would defintely include the ability to perceive what the other poster was thinking.
Your attempt to define it as ONLY the ability to see things that are currently happening at another location, was laughably incorrect.

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.
Exactly. It's the same kind of patriarchal BULL that's been told to girls from a very early age within the Catholic Church. GAG.

That's one of the main reasons I rejected the whole religionist package as an independent adult. I refused to live by faith-based rules that treated women as little more than slaves and mindless baby factories "for God and church."

Of course Inky and Sassy will continue with their efforts to con us into believing "there's no patriarchy in the Church" or something equally ridiculous. I don't buy that nonsense now any more than I did a couple of decades ago.

Thanks, Inky, you just proved Bitner's point. That being, any woman who isn't like you and sASSy, who prefers NOT to either get married or have children, who prefers, perhaps, to be a financially independent career woman instead, has something "wrong" with her. She must have had some terrible "life experience" that has made her so unwilling to follow the same life script that the Catholic Church (or any other conservative "Christian" church) has dictated women "should" follow.

A growing number of women have decided they DON'T want to stay in the restrictive confinement of marriage and motherhood ONLY. It seems to me that the only women who are bothered by the decision of some women to remain single and childfree (which means no children by CHOICE rather than by circumstance) are women like you and sASSy. If you weren't, you wouldn't be circulating these "angry, frustrated, man-hating" labels about them.

I see. You're pissed at Morgana9 for posting those ACTUAL bible verses that put women in a 2nd-class, subservient position BELOW men. Too bad. Only a fool would deny that those verses treat women as subservient, and IMO little more than slaves. As far as I'M concerned, the real fools here are yourselves, for refusing to see what the Bible actually says.

That's why I kicked the toxic baggage of gods, religions and churches to the curb. I like the freedom of making all my OWN sexual and reproductive choices, without some nosy male cleric telling me I'm "sinning" for making a particular decision. One of those decisions is using reliable birth control to AVOID unwanted pregnancy. I'm DONE with the whole procreation thing, and since it is MY life, only I get to make the personal decisions regarding it. Regressive priests and politicians don't get to make MY life decisions for me.

I think conservative Catholic or Christian women DO have to follow such backward and oppressive rules, if they have decided they are going to "live by what the Bible says" or words to that effect. And these are CHRISTIAN rules too, they don't just apply to Jewish laws.

That's why I kicked the toxic baggage of gods, religions and churches to the curb. I refused to be treated like a second-class citizen, a man's unpaid servant, and mindless baby factory "for God and church" simply because I am a woman. I decided that for MYSELF, the benefits of secularist freedom are much better than the miseries of religionist slavery. Got a problem with my saying that? Too bad. I'll say it as many times as I want.

Sure you can say it all you want, the first amendment says you can, but it doesn't mean you are right.
