attack the old testament instead

How the Hebrew Scriptures (Old Testament) generally viewed women:

Women's behavior was extremely limited in ancient times, much as the women of Afghanistan during the recent Taliban oppression. They were:

Unmarried women were not allowed to leave the home of their father.

Married women were not allowed to leave the home of their husband.

They were normally restricted to roles of little or no authority.

They could not testify in court.

They could not appear in public venues.

They were not allowed to talk to strangers.

They had to be doubly veiled when they left their homes.

In the Hebrew Scriptures, women were generally viewed in a negative light:

Women were considered inferior to men:
Genesis 1:27 to 3:24:

In the first creation story (Genesis 1:27) God is described as creating man, both male and female at the same time: "So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them."
To me, this is interpreted as implying equality between the two genders.
But in the second creation story, (Genesis 2:7) God formed only a man: "...the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.
Realizing that he needed a helper (Genesis 2:18), God marched all of the animals past Adam (Genesis 2:19-20) looking for a suitable animal. Finding none suitable, God created Eve out of one of Adam's ribs. The term "helper" has historically been interpreted as implying an inferior role for Eve, although some modern interpreters believe that the word can mean a companion of equal status. the Hebrew word translated "helper" is used twenty-one times in the Old Testament: twenty of these cases refer to help from a superior.
In Genesis 2:27, Adam later asserts his authority over Eve by naming her: "...she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man." In ancient times, one was believed to have authority over a person or thing by naming it.

Genesis 3:16:Adam's role is to be Eve's master. The King James Version (KJV), New International Version (NIV), and Revised Standard Version (RSV) use the term "rule" to describe Adam's role over Eve: "...thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee." The Living Bible uses the term "master". The Modern Language Bible uses "dominate". By implication, all of their descendents are would have the same power imbalance between spouses.

The bad part about all this is...over in the "middle east"...women are still treated this way. Can't drive a car - can't vote - can't go to school - some can't show their face..let alone their legs! Some can't leave their home compound....and you thought you had it rough!

A man could marry (literally "become the master of the woman") as often as he desired. In Genesis 4:19, Lamech became the first known polygamist when he took two wives. Subsequent men who took multiple wives included: Esau with 3 wives; Jacob: 2; Ashur: 2; Gideon: many; Elkanah: 2; David: many; Solomon: 700 wives of royal birth; Rehaboam: 3; Abijah: 14. Jehoram, Joash, Ahab, Jeholachin and Belshazzar also had multiple wives.

So...according to the've come a long way baby!

Gee, great comments this time. Now I see the true benefits of comment moderation.

I agree with Brit Com. He erased any veneer of class that he had with this mind-numbingly stupid and crass act.

Heyyyy Saby... I'm just being honest. It's true I haven't visited this blog long enough, but I didn´t like your comment with the bible excerpts and the bragging about having the largest porn collection... As I said, not my style. Nothing exceptional about that.
Siesta is Spanish. In Portuguese we say sesta. Never heard the word suzegadd and bon fest is not Portuguese either...
Sorry, but I'm used to correcting... I'm a teacher!
