You might be done....That is where you have lowered yourself to Just as your own people have.
The second century St.Clement of Alexandria wrote: "Every woman should be filled with shame by the thought that she is a woman."
The Church father Tertullian explained why women deserve their status as despised and inferior human beings:
"And do you not knowthat you are an Eve? The sentence of God on this sex of yours lives in thisage: the guilt must of necessity live too. You are the devil's gateway: you arethe unsealer of that tree: you are the first deserter of the divine law: youare she who persuaded him whom the devil was not valiant enough to attack. Youdestroyed so easily God's image, man. On account of your desert that is, deatheven the Son of God had to die."
The sixth century Christianphilosopher, Boethius, wrote in The Consolation of Philosophy, "Woman is a temple built upon a sewer."
In the tenth century Odo ofCluny declared, "To embrace a woman is to embrace a sack of manure..."
St. Thomas Aquinas suggested that God had made a mistake in creating woman: "nothing [deficient] or defective should have been produced in the first establishment of things; so woman ought not to have been produced then."
We are done.
Please have the couth to acknowledge this or be ignored.
Anyway, are you just quoting catholics here, because you do know that catholics are not Christians, they believe a different gospel that sees Jesus lessened and the mother having the role that Jesus has. And they have some really weird “traditions” that aren’t even Biblical...so I’m not going to defend what those people say at all.
As to the issue of women taking a back seat...well we were created to be a man’s helper...we already have the back seat and someone has to be in charge, you can’t both be the head, someone has to be the tie breaker. This doesn’t bother me at all since Jesus says that the man must love the wife as Christ loves the church...He didn’t leave it for a man to dominate us, like say in islam but love with a sacrificial love. And His Spirit will even teach you how this works. Like I say Jesus’ burden is light. God’s ways work.
I don’t see why it bother’s you so much especially when you are so offended by that yet you will belittle me if I don’t agree with you...you seem more like the people you quote that you despise.
