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.
The Bible had a point at the time in Hebrew history. There would be no Jews today if it wasn't for the strict marriage roles. They served a purpose. If you aren't Jewish then they don't pertain to you. So why worry?

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 :)
You should report the student that slapped you to the police
as an assault.
Children that are abused in school by anyone whether
it be by another child or an adult, should call the police.
The schools do not care and going to jail is where they belong.
Especially teachers. They get away with their abuse because
the children don't tell. They get sick.
It goes on their record.
God is justice. Righteousness.

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 purpoe does eating turkey on Thanksgiving serve? It is tradition and men taking their hats off in church and women covering their heads is tradition and culture.

Aside from that he says that women and men are not independent from each other. He says that man comes from God and woman from man and yet man comes from woman by birth. Read more than just the parts that irritate you.

So? Whether or not YOU see marriage and motherhood "like that" is irrelevant to me. If both marriage and motherhood are AGAINST a woman's will, meaning she was forced or heavily pressured by her family or religious community to both marry and have children when she really didn't WANT to do either, then both marriage AND motherhood is a prison sentence for that particular woman.
Under the so-called "traditional marriage" setup, the husband is basically the wife's BOSS, although I know conservative religionists are very careful to avoid that term. I see absolutely NOTHING good about that kind of marital arrangement, because to me, it WOULD be a prison sentence. So I make sure I avoid it. Any guy who wants to be a woman's BOSS in a marriage is definitely a guy to RUN from.
Why do you women keep getting your selves in these messes that you can't handle? Bad marriages, unwanted pregnancies and angry and resentful at a world you see as run by men. Get over the anger and make your life better. Whatever it takes.

I certainly am not bitter about anything. I had nothing to do with the legalization of abortion so therefore it has no bearing on me. It doesn't change my life in any way. People are going to be who they want to be and they have all options available to them. I'm sad about the fact that killing unborn babies is so important to women but not at all bitter.

Oh, well I guess that means I'm not 'bitter' either.

Just incredibly pissed off.

Simply out of curiosity, if abortion has no bearing on your life, why do you spend so much time railing against it?

Food for thought.

I guess you are trying to make a point. What is it? Do you have information that shows evidence that he didn't exist and that he is not responsible for the now Christian religion?

How do you not understand? You said something; I called you out on it and you said you you didn't say it. I showed you posts, gave posts numbers and yet you're still unable to follow????

You said that "it is prettying a given that he did indeed walk on the earth and did what is written that he did". Then when I questioned you about that you said you were just trying to say that he did exist, leAving out the whole "did what is written that he did".

The misunderstanding is all on your side of the table. Get back to me when you know what you said.

In other words believers can always weasel out of any argument by claiming "special understanding" of context or words or what their god "really" meant. Why would an omnipotent deity's teachings rely on time and culture?

No that you actually write what 'the text says' in the context that it is said. Most of the time when non believers quote the Bible it is either inaccurate, out of context or not considerate of the times and culture.

Gladly, from what I have read the words attributed to Him by the writers of the gospels do fit a pattern and a consistancy that leads them to believe that he did exist and that he said the things the gospels say he did. What don't you understand?

The gospels also say he rose from the dead and that he rose Lazarus from the dead, but that is absolutely not agreed upon. Why do you become so obtuse and have selective memory when called out on something you claim, but can not prove?
