I DO stand for your right to speak your mind. It is also MY right, and that of anyone else, to challenge and disagree with stupid and archaic BELIEFS when I see them, including yours. Free speech goes BOTH ways, G, in case you didn't get the memo.
Yes osean I gots the memo, and if I forget, then you are always nice enough to remind me.

I still don't see how you think the keeping of the house is any less important then any other Job.

That's right. No one knows.

There may be no punishment for all anyone knows as well.

Who's in charge? The husband, the wife? Both? The kids?
What if factories had no one in charge?
Same as a home, someone must have the final say, and that choice should be made for the betterment of the family.
It is the only way it will work well, becouse men and women are different -other then physical.
When a husband and wife disagrees on a decision that must be made, then what does one do?
Ah, just as I thought, you favor DICTATORSHIP in marriage rather than a husband-and-wife equal partnership. Got it.@@

That's just the kind of toxic marital arrangement that I made it a priority to AVOID. Why any woman would WANT that kind of marriage is beyond me, but luckily, that's not MY lot to endure.

Now tell me that Sharia Law is good for woman. It teaches that woman are less than the animals you own.
Very true, Sharia Law is NOT good for women in the least. But conservative religions don't treat women well either, a fact that conservative Christians like to ignore. For the "christian" extremists who think that girls and women were well treated in past American history, I think it's time for a little reminder of some facts you probably don't want to see mentioned on a public forum. Too bad. The fact is, we had an American version of Sharia Law in the 19th century. At the beginning of the 19th century in America --

-- Girls got much less education than boys did.

-- Girls' activities, especially for middle- and upper-class girls, were limited to "ladylike" pursuits.

-- Girls and women were considered naturally weaker and inferior to boys and men.

-- It was thought shocking, outrageous, and even scandalous for a woman to give a speech in public, especially to audiences of both men and women.

-- Middle- and upper-class women were expected to confine their activities to a "separate sphere" or their homes. Women were also expected to show the "virtues" of religious piety, wifely submission, and motherly domesticity. And they always had to be escorted outside their homes by a man.

-- Married women had NO legal rights, including to own property, keep their inherited money, enter into contracts, sign legal documents, or control what happened to their wages or their children.

-- Women who were single or had to earn money had very few job opportunities and were always paid less than men who did the same job.

-- Middle- and upper-class women were expected to wear layers of restrictive and heavy clothing, and corsets that were so tight that many women suffered serious health problems as a result.

-- Almost a million African women were chattel slaves.

-- Women were not allowed to vote.

-- Married women had no choices over their reproductive process. Any woman who got married was expected to produce children, whether she WANTED to be a mother or not.

In addition to the above, as if that weren't oppressive enough, conservative men of the 19th and early 20th century opposed every measure that improved women's lives, especially a woman's right to vote. THAT'S what the 19th century feminists fought so hard to change, and eventually succeeded in doing so, even though it took 72 years, from 1848 to 1920, to achieve that goal. The shame was that it took that long for women to GET that right to vote in the first place.

Housekeeping isn't of any ECONOMIC value because the women doing it aren't getting PAID for doing so. The exceptions to that are the women who belong to a professional housecleaning service and get PAID to do housework for the women (or men) who hire them.

See the difference?

Apparently not, since you're NOT the one that remained faithful to your spouse.

You were the one "playing house" dear.

I find it funny as hell that YOU are the one that couldn't honor your vows made before G-d, yet you will try to excuse that by insulting everyone else who did.

I realize you think my way of thinking is a pic of a big bearded man dressed like a viking who rules his family with an iron fist, but you would be wrong.
My wife and I are one. We believe in a God who says the man is to rule His house with Godly wisdom.
The man is to give himself up for his wife, as Christ gave Himself up for His bride the church.
We to work together on any and all issues, and if we reach a point where we just don't know, then my wife chooses to let me choose what we should do.
Just like this last presidential election.
We were torn on who to vote for.
Obama was a no brainer for us, becouse of his stance on gay marriage and abortion, and just about all other issues.
Romney was a morman, and we did not want morman to be in the American spotlight, even though we knew it would be between obama or Romney.
Yes there were more running, but history shows that "most " people are cookie cutters and either vote D or R.
We vote according to the person running and their values.
C'mon Bright Sun, fess up.

Well that is how God says women were created. Atleast eve came from adams rib.
Of course to us that may sound weird, but just knowing how babies form and are in the womb, for so long, then they take their first breath,is kinda weird.
Plus lets take a look at evolution? It teaches us that women "men, and every thing came from...... A rock! Slim covered rock.
I geuss that makes God's version not seem so crazy after all.
Both take faith.
Evolution takes even more faith.
Evolution does not teach us that we came from slime off a rock.

Housework is less important than any other job because the wife DOING the housework doesn't get PAID for it.

One of my favorite quotes was one by Susan B. Anthony in 1896. When she was asked during an interview why she never married, Miss Anthony replied: "I never felt I could give up my life of freedom to be a man's housekeeper."

Personally, I think that many conservative guys get married simply because they're sick of doing the housework themselves and want "the little woman" to do it.

Gee, perhaps because nobody's aborting pregancies 10 minutes before birth you moron.
Virgins who got pregnant from not having sex are not the ones having abortions.
Virgins dont get pregnant. My G-D you're stupid!

Other then that please forgive me for not putting much thought in answering your questions,
Given you dont put much thought into anything you say, its not like its a shock here Sparky.

You have no idea what islam teaches.
Actually I do. I've read the Koran, and know many Muslims.

Its called EDUCATING YOURSELF. You should try it sometime.
As far as my Jesus, I've already said I mess up when I try to represent Him, but you hated Him before I ever came along, and will after I'm gone, unless you get serious about the truth about God, instead of trying to fit Him into your box.
ROFLMAO I dont hate your jebus, I dont believe in him. He's simply completely meaningless to me.

As has been pointed out - one cannot hate what one doesn't believe in.

Rest assured, I'm VERY serious about G-d, and I KNOW the truth - but your jesus ain't my g-d ya dope.

Perhaps YOU should stop trying to cram everyone in YOUR box.

G-d knew full well there would be different faiths, and he's just fine with it. Maybe you should worry about your own soul, and let Him speak to those He speaks to for Himself.

When it comes to what the Koran teaches and the STUPIDITY you and the other freak are apouting about it? No, it hasn't, becuase I have actually educated myself on the subject, and I know I'm NOT wrong.
Plus not everyone that disagrees with you are not morons, liars, or idiots.
I never said everyone was. THat's YOU LYING again. It seems to be one of your favorite lies here.

Those of you that bear false witness on a fairly regular basis, say STUPID and FALSE shit about other faiths ARE morons, liars and idiots. That's a FACT son.

Those of you that ignore facts and CONTINUE to spew your venom about other faiths ARE liars and thus, idiots.

No, not my Jesus, or atleast they don't view Him as He is.
THey view him as he is to THEM.
They view Him as a prophet but not the only way to Heaven.
That's how MOST faiths view him, if they bother with him at all.
The deal is though, either Jesus was who He said He was or He was a liar.
OR he's just another version of faith, that is meaningless to many. Many dont beleive he existed at all.
He claimed to be God, so what would you call a guy that did good things but claimed to be God?
Nuts.
The only way a muslim can go to heaven for certain is to die while killing non muslims.
You're lying, yet again.
