1 Timothy 2:12

I do not permit a woman to teach or to exercise authority over a man; rather, she is to remain quiet.

Ephesians 5:22-33

Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife even as Christ is the head of the church, his body, and is himself its Savior. Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit in everything to their husbands. Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her, that he might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word,...

1 Corinthians 11:3-16

But I want you to understand that the head of every man is Christ, the head of a wife is her husband, and the head of Christ is God. Every man who prays or prophesies with his head covered dishonors his head, but every wife who prays or prophesies with her head uncovered dishonors her head, since it is the same as if her head were shaven. For if a wife will not cover her head, then she should cut her hair short. But since it is disgraceful for a wife to cut off her hair or shave her head, let her cover her head. For a man ought not to cover his head, since he is the image and glory of God, but woman is the glory of man....

No less important than what is important to you. My mother has a cousin who many years ago was in a short, very abusive, marriage. She had her marriage annulled before I was even born. After that she chose to never marry again and had no kids yet she has lived a very happy, full and productive life. Being a wife and mother is a choice like anything else and nobody is required to follow that path.
I think in some cases more important. It's like they have something to prove and are quite driven.

Fabulous!! Best to file it away in the ancient history mythological/misogynistic section and leave it in the past where it belongs. I am all for it! Matter of fact that is where we taught are daughter it belonged, she agreed!
Problem is the damn pesky mythological believers wish to club you over the head with it.
Who bothers you with the Bible? Most people have never read it or just googled the out of context parts that fit their agenda.

I know what the book says and you can try to sweeten it all you like. But the bottom line is...as you said
"He says that man comes from God and woman from man", nothing degrading about that right Ink? Think about it Ink, she is lower on the totem pole. A child could figure that out.
Well if you believe that the first person on earth was a man, then it is accurate not demeaning. The verse speaks in a circle woman comes from man and man comes from woman. That makes them equal to me.

Actually, yes I do.

In the first trimester, I do...because it's not a child. In the second and third trimesters I do...if I don't want to die trying to gestate it, or it will die anyway, in grave pain, or it is severely/profoundly compromised, and I don't have the resources to raise it. You know: INDIVDUAL CIRCUMSTANCES.

You and your brood want to make it illegal regardless. Even if the woman is likely to die gestating. As happens to 650 women every year in this, the most medically advanced country in the world.

We both know you'd be fine with higher numbers...because martyrdom, in your little world, is FREAKIN AWESOME.

And yet,....MOST proaborts are in favor of the gov't restricting abortion. SUDDENLY,the so called "pro-choicers" are anti-womans choices regarding her "BEST CHOICES FOR OUR INDIVIDUAL CIRCUMSTANCES".
Yoo hoo? what's wrong with this picture?
It REEKS with contradiction and hypocrisy.
As you know, if it was up to me, there wouldn't be any restrictions at all. But it isn't up to me.

And thank goodness it isn't up to you either, you fundie fuck.

Most of the time? No, I disagree. They may have a different perspective from your most learned and scholarly POV but it is no less accurate than the interpretations of believers.
I didn't say their point of view or interpertation was less accurate, did I? I said that what they choose to post, in their own words is not what the Bible actually says or that they post one line without context or they take 3000 year old Jewish rules and apply them to today. I just don't think it makes sense. There are beautiful words that that transpire and inspire even today but that is never what they choose to focus on.

No worse than the fundies who tirelessly try to cram their dogma down our throats. I never had a feminist knocking on my door to proselytize but I get fundies all the time.

What are religious nuts people like the Nebraska Nag trying to prove on here?

And you fundies aren't trying to take 2000 year old rules and apply them to today? Or take the bible scriptures out of context to support your own POV?

Your double standards are showing.

"I didn't say their point of view or interpertation was less accurate, did I?"

Then you've rendered your own point as moot.

They don't have to knock on your door, they are all over the television and internet and they convinced many women that they aren't living up to their potential if they are satisfied with their lives. They seem to be on a campaign to promote angry, frustrated disenchanted women. They are women, just look at the anger on here when anyone challenges their ideals.

There are the many who have creeped into politics in order to enforce their no so good book. They wish to role back womens rights, they are on a mission. They take scripture seriously...starting with the ROLE of women, that must be enforced above all other things. You should pay more attention Ink.

LMAO!!! that's cute.
I'm so glad you think it's "cute," sASSy. I think it's also TRUE. As I said, I know conservative religionists like you really don't like the word "boss" being used. So you all do your best to try and CON us that such isn't the case. You like to use the term "head of the family" instead. Nice try, but I'm still not buying the phony bill of goods. "Head of the family" still means BOSS to me.

For me, the whole "raditional marriage" thing stinks. So I do my best to avoid that kind of toxic arrangement. Whether or not YOU have a problem with it is irrelevant.

Exactly. Romney, Ryan, Santorum, all of those guys are militant religionists who have crept into politics over the years. I am just very grateful that all three of them LOST their elections. They would have made things far worse for women if they had won.

Let's not forget the now-classic remark of Santorum's, that "contraception is not okay" nonsense. How is it ANY of his business or anyone else's whether women use contraception to prevent unwanted pregnancy or not? Simple; it ISN'T his business at all. But his public comments have made it clear that he would like to MAKE it his business if he ever got the chance. Thank goodness he DIDN'T get it.

You are right! I don't believe that. However, the scriptures are quite clear on rank and file.

Shall we take another peek at just a few that I previously posted?

""For the husband is the head of the wife even as Christ is the head of the church, his body, and is himself its Savior.""

The churches purpose is "worship" correct? Do you worship your husband, is he your savior?

I do not permit a woman to teach or to exercise authority over a man; rather, she is to remain quiet.

Well there you have it Ink....you have no authority.

""Slaves are to be submissive to their own masters"""

Women and slaves have much in common it appears.

"""Likewise, wives, be subject to your own husbands, so that even if some do not obey the word, they may be won without a word by the conduct of their wives""

How nice, men do not need to obey if their wife is in line......

"""I will surely multiply your pain in childbearing; in pain you shall bring forth children. Your desire shall be for your husband, and he shall rule over you."""

He shall rule over you, enough said.

""""Likewi se, husbands, live with your wives in an understanding way, showing honor to the woman as the weaker vessel,"""

The weaker vessel....enough said.

"""To be self-controlled, pure, working at home, kind, and submissive to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be reviled."""

That is pretty straight forward, ""working at home", there does not appear to be another option or CHOICE.

"""If there is anything they desire to learn, let them ask their husbands at home.""

AH! The wife only is allowed knowledge from her husband! If he desires she has any.

That enough for now, with so much more to go!
