You are saying that wives and mothers are breeding stock and glorified maids. What do you do in life that is more important than raising great children?
"The flip side is people who say ignorant things..."

My remark went with this previous statement.

Are women who have never had kids just a waste of space in this world? Are they useless or something?

Instead of being proud and secure,they choose to attack their very own(womanhood). Who are they punishing? themselves,their children? Who are they pleasing? Nobody.
I wish women would empower themselves by standing up for their feminity instead of degrading it. The proabort women feel empowered by killing or having the choice to kill their offsprings. How tragic.
Not even close.

We're no angrier than you...and we're not ashamed of BEING angry, either.

Although you SCPL certainly take it amiss that we dare to get angry...acting as if women aren't supposed to feel anger over our autonomy, our motives, and our right to defend ourselves against unwanted pregnancies, questioned...impugned...and chipped away bit by bit. Or about being more or less told that we aren't trusted to make the best choices for our individual circumstances, and the government's going to take over that role, regardless of our feelings about it.

If men were told they'd be required by law to impregnate someone every time they had sex, they'd be pretty frigging angry about it too.

Just sayin.

On a personal level the difference of opinions is not that much of an issue but on a much larger scale it becomes a problem...a big problem. Especially when each group, thinking they are the ones who have it right, try to impose their version of God on everyone else. As you know, bloody wars have been fought over who is right about God.
Yes - sad but true.

What I or anyone else talks some into another can talk them out of.

When it comes to "God / people" - personal, is the only thing that will matter.

Those who try and force God or beliefs on others, are spirituality retarded at best.

<quoted text> You sound like a woman scorned. The consensus of pro-abortion women is that marriage and motherhood is a prison sentence where within the woman is victimized. I don't view marriage or motherhood like that. God intended man to leave his mother and father and clings to his wife. THEY become ONE. With that said,we are one body. Your negative experiences has tanished such a beautiful union. Motherhood is the extension of that beautiful,loving bond.
Interesting, I sound like a woman scorned by posting demeaning biblical passages pertaining to women? Gee, and I only posted a few when there are SO many.

Well I guess I am making some progress at least you recognize the “scorn” in the passages.

The consensus of the pro choice women and men is that the bible and those that wish to enforce it make women a slave in marriage and recognize without a doubt that the bible encourages victimization of women.

Apparently god intended for man to leave his parents and rule over a wife according to a number of scriptures.

How you view marriage and the treatment of women within the book you profess appear to be two different scenarios.

I have not had any negative experiences, you are simply projecting. I have been married for over 30 years and there is no ONE ruler in our house. There is a partnership of equals. I have enjoyed my life, I have worked and accomplished much on top of being a mother, I am an individual with the same rights as a man. My daughter is a source of pride. She has never been subjected to religion that deems her second class, nor does she have time for such nonsense. We brought her up quite well.

I do not need a book written by men telling me that I must be subservient or submissive, and that I am to be ruled over by a man as though I am a child. I am sorry that you find those things acceptable, women have moved on and have a healthy dose of self-respect, self-interest and
self-concern as they should.

<quoted text> Oh boy!
Listen,I am truly sorry that many women feel used and abused like you describe. But,I gotta say,today,women ADD to this. Let me explain. I hear women(you and some others on here..cough..cough...OCEAN56.. .)degrade the role of homemaker and motherhood as "if" it is a pathetic and unworthy position in life. If we care for others on the outside(jobs where we attend to,care for,nurse,service,etc..)then we are considered "employeed with honor". If we take on the job at our own home,with our own children and families,we are prisoners some how.
Wake up lady. Charity begins at home. Stand proud. Hold you head high. Understand the true value and honor that it is to be a mother and caretaker of our homes and you will THEN lead the mislead pack to a very serene,honorable place.
No job is stress free or without it's tiring moments. Get a grip on reality. Don't take your insecurities out on motherhood/being a wife.
You wanna leave it all behind in such of a "worthy" lot in life(work outside the home),then be prepared to do doubletime work. If you have kids,THEY come first. You want to put them last,then you will have no joy in your life and your priorities will distort who YOU really are and what YOUR place in life is really about. Sorry to be so harsh.
You are confused. We are not degrading the role of homemaker and motherhood. The bible degrades it. The bible reduces it to subservience, submissiveness and the need to have a man rule over the wife as though she were a child. It gives it no value but that of a slave.

Who and what we really are is a matter of individuality, it is not up to you or anyone else to determine that for another. You are the one who sounds bitter towards women who choose to be individuals and life life to the fullest. In fact you are intimidated by women who step out of a role issued to them by male hierarchy religions.

Are you suggesting that the bible can be reinterpreted to produce such an outcome? That would be a difficult task since the bible was written by men as the foundation of male hierarchy and maltreatment of women as his pet/slave/whore.
I have witnessed and read enough history to understand the so called "order" proposed by the bible.
Yes, thankfully women CAN do as they please within or without marriage as she is an individual and not a pet/slave/whore thanks to women stepping up and taken their rightful place as the producers of the human race.
I am married and have been for over 30 years. We have a partnership and we are both the heads of the house. One does not rule over the other.
I never said women were garbage, I was referring to the bible as being such.
Who sinned first in mythical story? The ridiculous HE-MAN Childish male god who decided to play a game with a tree and an apple.
Why the verses concern me so much? Think about it genius, they have been the force behind the maltreatment of women for ages. I would have thought you could have figured that out. Obviously you are a man and this doesn't concern you.
Yes I'm a man, and have been a great husband, and other times I've been a horrible husband.

I've changed diapers, cleaned clothes, cooked, washed dishes, and other times I've not done those things, and took my wife for granted.

There should be some type of order, in anything.

When things have order, they run much better.
When they don't,they don't.

You and ocean just seem to be upset, becouse many men in the past have used the Bible to justify their bad actions.

Had the Bible reversed the man and woman's role, I believe many women would've done the same thing.

Many who cry equality, truly just want to run the show.

No matter what saith the Lord, people still do as they please.
That's the whole reason He sent His son.

I'm just thankful I don't get what I deserve.

Most wouldn't want what they deserved if they only knew.

Well lady, if it helps I will tell you, that I don't "know" if the flood took place. I don't "know" if any Bible thing happened, since I wasn't there.

I believe by faith that it did.

There were many accounts of a Flood, but again who knows??

I didn't know nor care about anything of God.

I now do,and "believe" He saved me, just like the Bible says.

Better?

I believe if someone truly wants to know about God, they can seek Him, and other then that all I can do is tell my beliefs.

Excuse Ocean and I....and a good many other women on this thread for recognizing the FACT that male hierarchy religions have been used in the maltreatment, abuse, rape, burnings, enslavement, beating, killing, and discrimination of women throughout history. I consider the goal to control women's reproductive lives another product of male hierarchy religion, just another stone in our path.

Gee, why would we be upset? I am surprised you did not say "hysterical", isn't that what the boys use when women stand up and recognize mistreatment or don't accept mistreatment?

<quoted text>I don't think that Paul was part of a Godly religion to begin with. He joined forces with some who where not "of God",therefore,displaying unGodly behavior. Was his belonging to this group intentionally meant to be anti-God/Christ? Who knows. Only God know,I suppose.
"BY THE FRUITS YOU WILL KNOW THEM"
When Paul had his conversion,he indeed followed him religiously(he became a Christian. He then belonged to Christs church here on earth. What he became intolerant about was unGodly religions where they didn't obey the teachings of God/Christ...hence,his making of so many enemies,..as well as followers :)
Paul was clearly not of God.
He was just very religious. "Thinking " he was doing Gods work.

After meeting God, and realizing how far he was off on the whole God thing, he made one of my favorite statements,when he listed all of the "great " things he had been, and done, and then turned around and said he counted it all dung.

He then said he only knows Jesus Christ, and Him crucified.

He may, like many today, have known a lot of scripture, but really changed when he met the Arthur.:)

No, many (women) just want equality they have grown weary of double standards they would simply like to live their life to the fullest. YOU are the one who seems hung up on running the show. I imagine you feel entitled.

I asked you a question earlier since you were interpreting scripture for me. What purpose does this serve?:

1 Corinthians 11:5-15
New International Version (NIV)
5 But every woman who prays or prophesies with her head uncovered dishonors her head—it is the same as having her head shaved. 6 For if a woman does not cover her head, she might as well have her hair cut off; but if it is a disgrace for a woman to have her hair cut off or her head shaved, then she should cover her head.

What.....it wasn't the same institution back in the 70's ? It had a different position on abortion and women's reproductive rights ?
There were no instances of priest abuse and church cover-up ?
The fact is there were most likely many more cases than there are today.
And even if I believed your lie about the scholarship, which I don't for a second, scholarships still represent real money. Money was paid to that institution in your name. And the fact the college said nothing about a woman's pregnancy doesn't change the fact that the money still went to the Catholic Church.
Spin it any way you like. It still spells hypocritical phony.
What does it matter if there are cover ups, lies, abortions,
murders, pregnancies?
Tower of Babel?
Priest abuse us just like the media.
We listen to their lectures like teachers.
They never practice what they preach.
The church should feed the children.
Their money is theirs. They are worthless.

Well we don't know that he actually did Sassy. That reporter you linked to and was giving the interview was not the reporter that had a change of heart. Mullane is a pro life columnist. I have to question the validity since the "pro choice" reporter hasn't actually come forward and spoke for himself. But if he's out there, it's just not that big of deal that he's had a change of heart.
sassyjm wrote:

I never said the trial was based on the lack of inspections Sassy, all I said was that perhaps this reporter could have some influence on the lack of inspections. The media can be the Governments worse enemy sometimes. This is supposedly what the other journalist said:“This is the worst on many levels,” he said.“Not only because of what was going on in Gosnell’s clinic in West Philadelphia, but also because of the indifference of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the Department of Health, which did not inspect any of the state’s 22 abortion clinics for 17 years.”
So yeah, his change of heart had alot to do with the lack of inspections on Philadelphia abortion providers. But I get you are thinking he's changed his political stance which is his right, but I'm just not seeing that he has.

Although I've been a sorry excuse for a husband, if you only knew how my wife and little girl gets whatever they want, it may shock you.

I have "friends " who feel the need to let their wives know who's boss, in Jesus name, but I believe if a man is in right step with God, then there is no need to even bring up who is and who's not the head.

Many folks want to be the boss, but don't want the responsibility that comes -with it.

Not bragging, but I've Never once asked, let alone demand my wife cook any meal period!
or clean anything, period!

If she does either, then great!

She's not Martha stewert on any, but that's ok, neither am I.

Goggle your verse, if you want opinions.

My suggestion is for you to find out what your thoughts on God are first.

How did we get here?

Does God exist ?

If God was real, and wanted you to accept Him, would that God have any problem hearing you, if you truly wanted that God to hear you?

What if YOU are wrong?

What if I'm wrong?
What if all you've held onto is wrong?

Why not cut out all the middle "men" and go directly to God?

Jesus had to ask a man who laid near a pool.,if he wanted to be healed "
Many folks today don't truly care about "truth", they just want what they are comfortable in to be accepted by all others :(

Ok, I claim that I was an atheist, before I was saved,although yes, as a child I was taught about God and how He wanted us to be good. The day I round my father "hero" dead, when I was 9-10 years old I did stop believing in God, after all how could a loving God allow such a situation? Especially since I had tried to be a "good" boy for those few years of my life??

I had a Guy who slapped me EVERYDAY on the school bus, yet I never fought back, becouse I knew it wouldn't make Jesus happy.

After my dad died, the kid almost made it to my seat, before I beat the hell out of him, or as much as a 9-10 year old could.

I went from being a "good" kid, to on probation three times, and state probation twice by the time I was 14 years old.

I didn't care about life, and I know what "religion" can do to a person.

Yet, no matter what has happened to me in this life, or what I've done, to deny that God is real, "regardless of how I feel toward how He does things, or allows things to happen ",it would be lying to myself.

Anywho I'm just very glad you responded to me,and I mean that,with all sincerity!

To me, there are those on this thread, who spew out what they've been taught. No matter, if for / against abortion. For /against God.

Then there are a few, who are what I call "real" and truly want what is real.

Again - I'm probably anything "you" call me, but would like to just thank you :)
