Xian and Muslim Sex Discrimination Confronted
The number one source of the Western world's horrific exploitation, persecution, and abuse of females -- Paul's insane stereotyping, dehumanization, and degradation of women -- continues.
I Timothy 2.11 Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection.
12 But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.
13 For Adam was first formed, then Eve.
14 And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.
15 Notwithstanding, she shall be saved in childbearing, if they continue in faith and charity and holiness with sobriety.
Now the subliminal messages Paul was sending are included so that the reader can better hear the absolute wickedness and insanity in Paul's lies.
I Timothy 2.11 Let women shut up and be shut up, and let all women be subjected to male domination!
One of Satan's super-sneaky, deceitful ploys is revealed in one little word: let. This is not a situation in which humans are to stand back and "let / allow" somebody else to do something. Paul's use of the word "let" was an attempt to disguise the reality that he was issuing commandments that ordered Christian males to forcefully silence any woman who spoke up. And indeed, all too many of his Christian males have complied. Because overall, females are smaller and weaker physically, all the males have had to do in their attempts to make us shut up was beat us up, thereby not only practicing sex discrimination, but status discrimination: the abuse of power that creates an intimidating, hostile, offensive environment.
Stated another way, what Paul was really saying to his male Christians was:
"Thou shalt be a bully! Thou shalt make women shut up! Thou shalt FORCE women to succumb to male intimidation and domination! Thou shalt beat up and/or slaughter any woman who dares to question MY authority!"
What makes Paul's compliant Christian males' attitudes and behaviors all the more despicable is when they claim they are going off to war to defend America's women and children. Then when the war is over, they themselves become veterans at treating American women and children like shit!
No dis-Spirited person can know how abSAULutely wicked are Paul's demandments that women shut up. In order to gain Spirituality, a person MUST practice rigorous honesty. He must also have a place wherein to practice rigorous honesty. In steps God's most perfect church -- the anonymous 12-Step programs -- wherein each and every person in attendance is expected to speak honestly from his own little kid gut feelings with each person taking an approximately equivalent amount of time sharing. Therein do we gain the appropriate self-expression, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills so essential to salvation.
Listen to how the founder of God's most perfect church thus far, Bill Wilson, says it.
Rarely have we seen a person fail who has thoroughly followed our path. Those who do not recover are people who cannot or will not competely give themselves to this simple program, usually men and women who are constitutionally incapable of being honest with themselves. There are such unfortunates. They are not at fault; they seem to have been born that way. They are naturally incapable of grasping and developing a manner of living which demands rigorous honesty. Their chances are less than average. There are those, too, who suffer from grave emotional and mental disorders, but many of them do recover if they have the capacity to be honest. Alcoholics Anonymous Big Book, Alcoholics Anonymous World Services, Inc. New York City, 1976. p. 58.
That statement -- the heart of recovery -- is spoken at the beginning of nearly all A.A. meetings. The fallacy in the reading is that I am not sure any human lacks the capacity to be honest. Instead, the person who fails to recover is he who willfully chooses to be dishonest, most often due to his codependency -- his fear of other people.
The bottom line is that when Paul commanded women to shut up and males to silence females, he was intentionally depriving females of the right to gain Spirituality / salvation / recovery. And such actions are that of ultimate evil / Satan. Because most of us were raised in the world's religions wherein we were taught and complied with, "Don't trust. Don't feel. Don't tell. After all, what will the neighbors think?" just opening up to tell on ourselves is a very frightening new behavior for us initially. We have to feel the fear and do it anyway in order to experience God's awesome freedom.
12 I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man! Instead, I command females to be silent!
That's where the pope's hog call, "There shall be NO ORDINATION OF WOMEN!" comes from, and why Amish, Apostolic, and Mennonite women are segregated in silence from the male domineers in church.
13 Why do I command women to be silent? Well, I'll tell you why.
Because Adam was the first human formed by God. God did not create Eve until after He created Adam.
Because Adam was the first human created, Adam was superior to Eve, because a first creation is ALWAYS superior to a second creation.
Because Adam was a male, and we are males, we come first to God.
Thus, all females are inferior to us males, and all females are nothing more than second-class citizens.
Therefore, no woman is good enough to speak up, so thou shalt make all women shut up!
Ooh, what great logic and righteous justification for his assSAULts on females and exSAULtation of males the great god of Babble-on employs, eh, boys and girls? So tell us, kids, is this true? Suppose you were trying to draw the picture of an ape. Is your first effort always better than your second effort?
14 Besides, Adam was not deceived. The woman Eve was the person who was deceived. Therefore, Eve, not Adam, was the transgressor. Since Eve was a female, ALL females inherited Eve's sin, and have therefore been deceived and are transgressors against God.
Because Adam was not the transgressor, Adam was righteous and committed no sin whatsoever. In turn, all of us males inherited Adam's righteousness. Therefore, we males are superior to females.
But you Christyin priests and preachers do not exalt yourselves every time you promote this bull, eh, boys? Too bad you didn't believe:
"Whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased, and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted." Matthew 23.12
Why didn't you believe Him, boys? Because you would rather believe the following pig slop, eh?
15 Even though all females inherited Eve's sin and are transgressors against God, women shall be saved in childbearing if they continue in faith, charity, sobriety, and holiness.
Any person who believes that childbearing has anything to do with a woman's gaining salvation is out of his mind! God compares huMANity's going through the process of gaining redemption to the pain and travail that a woman goes through when giving birth to an infant because the two processes are very much alike. At times, the pain of giving birth to the Spirit of the Son of man is so severe, overwhelming, and beyond our control that we feel like screaming. You Christians' failure to know that gaining salvation is at times that arduous, scarey, frustrating, and painful is a humongous billboard sign informing the world that you do NOT know God at all, nor have you gained salvation.
In order to fully see all the insanity contained in those verses from I Timothy, one must know that Moses' story of the Creation is not a story of God's creation of the universe so much as it is a prophetic analogy that describes the process of being born again into Spirituality. In turn, the story of Adam and Eve is a prophetic description of how Christianity got suckered into being deceived by the serpent Paul, and how they ate the fruits from his tree of knowledge of good and evil (his letters) by believing and obeying Paul's commandments. In the process, the Christians lost their Spirituality. (To study the story of the Creation, log onto THE CREATION section of this web site on the Home page.)
Contrary to what Paul repeatedly preaches, God created MANY humans from the beginning as is revealed, for instance, in Cain's desire to build a city. If many other humans had not existed at the time, the thought to build a city would never have entered Cain's head. In other words, the very foundation of the Christian religion's false belief in all humans having inherited Adam and Eve's sin is totally false. Because that issue has already been addressed extensively in "The Creation" section of this web site, here shall it suffice to say that Paul is full of crap!
I am responsible for my behavior. You are responsible for your's. Even if a person is stupid enough to interpret the story of Adam and Eve literally, the story tells us:
The serpent deceived and beguiled Eve into eating the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil.
She then gave some of the fruit to her husband.
Adam ate the fruit.
Contrary to the promotion of Paul's lies:
Adam had choices just like we do.
Adam had the choice to say, "No!" to eating the fruit.
When Adam made the choice to eat that fruit, however, Adam also transgressed against God's commandment the same as Eve did.
And Adam is held accountable for his having made the choice to disobey God.
Thus, IF it were true that all females inherited Eve's sin (which it is not), then all of you males would have inherited Adam's sin, too, and all of you would be equally responsible for the downfall of mankind. In short, Paul's entire dogmanures of blaming females for the downfall of mankind and accusing females of being less than fully human are ABSURD!
Worthy of highlighting is Paul's use of the word charity. Paul uses that word 25 times in his letters -- all with the subliminal intent of suckering his Christyins into given him their dough, exactly like his super-greedy Christian priests and preachers of today do.
Also worthy of pointing out is Paul's repeated emphasis on sobriety. All the while, he himself was an alcoholic whose drug of choice was wormwood. Not only was Paul an ultimate hypocrite who commanded other people to do what he could not do himself, but I suspect that his incessant references to sobriety was also designed to discredit Bill Wilson, me, and Alcoholics Anonymous. In other words, I am quite sure that Paul knew that Bill Wilson and the daughter of Zion would be a recovering alcoholics / drug addicts, and God's most perfect church would be founded by a bunch of recovering drunkards / drug addicts, many of whom were going to become God's angels. IF Paul could convince his snooty Christians to believe that recovering drunks/addicts were BAD, BAD, BAD people, he could sucker them into ignoring the Truth spoken through Bill Wilson, the daughter of Zion, and all the other Spirit-led recovering alcoholics in the world.
Has Paul succeeded in that ploy? Indeed he has. So many Christians want their alcoholic / drug addicted loved ones to stay away from A.A. because the hoity-toity Christians automatically assume that recovering drunks are BAD, BAD, BAD people. WRONGO! And their addicted loved ones' succumbing to the pressure inflicted on them by Christians to stay away from the Program certainly holds the addicts hostage to the disease. In other words, those Christians are attempting to sucker their loved ones into dying in the disease, thereby seducing their addicted loved ones into Hell. AARGH!
So how does Satan Christianity's clone Satan Islam seduce Muslim males into obeying the same demandments? For starters, Muslim females are segregated from males in mosque like the Amish, Mennonite, and Apostolic Christian females are segregated in church. There is no ordination of Muslim females the same way the pope screams, "There shall be NO ordination of females!" Further, Richard Lacayo and Lisa Beyer tell us:
Zalmai is a Northern Alliance soldier lounging on a tank in the town of Arkhar. Ask him how many brothers he has, and he proudly tells you four, all soldiers. Ask how many sisters, and he says none. Press him repeatedly, and he finally admits to three. Why did he deny them? "Because girls are not important." He shrugs. "They do not count." Lifting the Veil by Richard Lacayo. Time Magazine. New York. December 3, 2001. p. 48
Women's rights are compromised further by a section in the Koran, [Islam's Bible] sura 4.34, that has been interpreted to say that men have "pre-eminence" over women or that they are "overseers" of women. The verse goes on to say that the husband of an insubordinate wife should first admonish her, then leave her to sleep alone and finally beat her. Wife beating is so prevalent in the Muslim world that social workers who assist battered women in Egypt, for example, spend much of their time trying to convince victims that their husbands' violent acts are unacceptable. The Women of Islam, by Lisa Beyer. Time Magazine. New York. December 3, 2001. p. 53-55.
[Among the Taliban's bans for women were] attending school, speaking or laughing loudly, wearing shoes that click, and speaking to men who are not close relatives. Lifting the Veil, p. 40.
The ban on work for most women had a disastrous effect on schooling for both sexes, since as many as 70% of all Afghan teachers were women. Excluding them from the classroom meant that boys had few teachers to instruct them.... A recent U.N. report estimated that at most 7% of Afghan girls were enrolled in school, compared with roughly half the boys. Lifting the Veil, p. 46
Although Islam encourages education, most females are illiterate. The Women of Islam, p. 55.
In the subjugation of women, it took the Taliban to outdo the Saudis. Women here [in Saudi Arabia] are not allowed to drive cars or fly anywhere without permission. They can work only in segregation from men and must cover themselves [with the veil] when in public or in the presence of the opposite sex. The Women of Islam, p. 56.
Today the only legal evidence of a Saudi woman's existence is the appearance of her name of her husband's card. If she gets divorced, her name goes on her father's card; if he's dead, her brother's; and if she has no brother, then the card of her closest male relative, even if she scarcely knows him. Manar, 35, a Riyadh translator, thinks ID cards for women will make a real difference. "As long as you are a follower, you cannot have a separate opinion, you cannot be outspoken," she says [thereby nailing why Paul's/Christianity's and Muhammad's/Islam's edicts are so extremely evil]. "Once you have a separate identity, then other things will come." For most Muslim women, there are many things left to come. The Women of Islam, p. 59.
Yes, indeed. You Muslim women are going to have to repent and believe the Gospel in order to overcome your own idiotic degradation of females just like I did.
