Tirades Against Feminism

Don't believe there are those who use the Bible and religion to put women in a subordinate position? The sites and quotes below will convince you that though many people will say that Christianity isn't anti woman, there are some who believe strongly in the most hateful interpretation of some Biblical statements.

My question here is - why would God insist on these rules? What are these people so afraid of in terms of equal rights that they cannot allow individuals to make their own choices based on their own set of gifts and circumstances?
"I know this is painful for the ladies to hear, but if you get married, you have accepted the headship of a man, your husband. Christ is the head of the household and the husband is the head of the wife, and that's the way it is, period."--Pat Robertson, "The 700 Club," 1/8/92

What does the "headship of a man" mean? Why is it so important for these people to insist on it?

Read in their own words how hateful and judgemental the Religious Right is.

From this site:

Feminists have peddled the fiction that men are engaged in a vast conspiracy against women, that something like 85 percent of employed women are sexually harassed in the workplace, and that something on the order of 50 to 70 percent of wives are beaten by their husbands.

I'd like to see some evidence for this straw man, Ms. Schlafly. While feminists do indeed take on the issues of sexual harrassment in the workplace (an increasingly important issue as more women work) and domestic violence (an issue swept under the rug by those who support anti-woman agendas and would rather the wife just "be a good little helper and he won't beat her any more") I have never seen such numbers except in this report of yours.

I have a hard time believing this guy, take your time and laugh at his whole site.

To summarize his views on feminism and religion:
Holy women, Christian women, did and will, subject themselves to their own husbands, by definition. A feminist, by definition, will never do that. A feminist can never qualify as a holy woman, a Christian in good standing. By proudly rejecting that role, she just as surely rejects Christianity, even if she won’t admit it.

Well I know I indeed proudly reject the role of "subjecting myself to my husband" and proudly accept the title of feminst, rather than associate with the likes of individuals who expect submission out of me.

Telling language at this site:
Feminists have also infiltrated other areas of study, such as history, sociology, anthropology, and even theology.

Oh my! One must INFILTRATE a place one is not permitted to be. Sounds like war or at least enmity to me.

Biblehttp://www.mcgill.pvt.k12.al.us/jerryd/cm/antifem.htm A Catholic site with such gems as:
The radical feminists know that the greatest enemy of their agenda is the Catholic Church. The Catholic Church absolutely and categorically opposes every item on their agenda: abortion, contraception, reproductive technologies, lesbianism, sex outside marriage, sex for children, destruction of the family, denial of the differences between men and women, and absolutely statistically equal participation of men and women in all areas of human endeavor.

Let's count the straw men there....

1. Destruction of the family? No. Acceptance, possibly, of different family structures, or at least not penalizing them when they emerge.
2. Denial of the differences between men and women? I don't think so. What I hear from feminists is the desire to allow the INDIVIDUAL to shine through, rather than the gender.
3. Absolutely statistically equal participation of men and women in all areas of human endeavor - while a nice goal, it is not possible due to the above ADMITTED differences.

4. Lesbianism: It is apparent many feminists are also very much pro individual rights in terms of personal relationships, feeling (as I do) that what consenting adults do in the privacy of their own bedrooms is none of others' business. This is a long way from "advocating" lesbianism.

And when they're taken out of the equation:
Abortion and contraception: If God doesn't want me to control my body to prevent conception if I so choose, I do indeed disavow Him.
Reproductive technologies? What reasonable person isn't for a certain level of medical progress to help couples with fertility problems? Most of us perceive ethical/moral limits, but these are generally held as individuals.

This is a site by "Biblical Patriarchs" - must be seen to be believed.
While I in general support individuals developing whatever family structure is right for them, including those with multiple adults,

More on the way!
