GOD IS A WOMAN: RELIGION+MEN=ABUSE
If Religion Were A Genre It Would Be Repression
The Bible is inherently sexists. Though the Bible is a book of much wisdom. It is also a book riddled with various forms of bigotry and prejudices. The Bible is clearly outdated and riddled with nonsense. It's a great work of literature, but it cannot be taken literally in the 21st century as male pastors try to spread the Christian agenda to control others, especially women.
If you were a wise woman, you would not let a fictional book rob you of your power and give it blindly and submissively a way to men who do not deserve having you wait on them hand and foot like a maid. Religion teaches women to value the thoughts and opinions of men over their own.
It tells you to be obedient to your husband and never leave the home. It makes you his slave and him your master. You cannot have equality in a religious household and you cannot have freedom for both sexes in a religious world.
In 1 Timothy 2:11-12 the Bible says, "Let a woman learn quietly with all submissiveness. I do not permit a woman to teach or to exercise authority over a man; rather, she is to remain quiet".
In 1 Corinthians 14:34 it says, "the women should keep silent in the churches. For they are not permitted to speak, but should be in submission, as the Law also says".
Religions say the worse things about women, calling us whores and temptresses. We were even blamed for the fall of man in the story of Adam and Eve.It makes no sense for women to defer to men, or allow them to be the leaders of not only households, churches, but society at large.
The Bible teaches women to be silent about the crimes men commit against them and other men. In reality, when we get our nose out of a fictional book and pay attention to what is going on in the world, men are the downfall of humanity, not women. Women have had very little influence over the world. We aren't the policy makers. The warriors. We are still repressed and fighting for our own liberation.
Women shouldn't be subordinates to men. If anything statistics prove women should make the decisions. It was actually found that societies and business tend to do better when women are in charge.
Let's look at some crime statistics pulled from America:
- Males constituted 98.0% of those arrested for forcible rape
- Males constituted 89.0% of those arrested for robbery
- Males constituted 85.0% of those arrested for burglary
- Males constituted 83.0% of those arrested for arson.
- Males constituted 81.5% of those arrested for motor-vehicle theft.
- Males constituted 81.7% of those arrested for stolen property.
- Males constituted 81.7% of those arrested for vandalism.
- Males constituted 79.7% of those arrested for offenses against family and children.
- Males constituted 77.8% of those arrested for aggravated assault
- Males constituted 58.7% of those arrested for fraud.
- Males constituted 57.3% of those arrested for larceny-theft.
- Males constituted 51.3% of those arrested for embezzlement.
Now, if males are responsible for the majority or crimes and murders, why should women unquestionably and silently let men lead and make all the major decisions in this world.
In 2006, Saudi Arabia defended a controversial verdict sentencing a 19-year-old gang rape victim to 200 lashes and six months in jail for being gang raped. The laws rule in the favor of the men so drastically, that the girl was punished for being out of the house.
Why are men so threatened by women? Is it because women are the creators of life and made more in god's image. Is it because if a woman doesn't pick you to mate with you may never have kids. Is that why men rape women, a deep seeded insecurity that they are not good enough for the woman, so they rape her viciously and violently. Saudi Arabia seriously needs to stop letting men get away with rape.
Guess what, men, god didn’t create you, your mother did. Show women some RESPECT. And if there were a god, women would be seen higher in god’s eyes because they are the incubators of life, so stop using religion to belittle women and use reason and rationale to honor them.
Conclusion: The Bible literally places women as second class citizens. It would make sense that men would love religion because the passages always place glorify them and make them the heroes and leaders, but it is clear women need to stop worshiping men and these books written to control them.
