Ultra-Orthodox Jewish women protest gender apartheid in Jerusalem

Since anti-woman sexism is an integral part of Ultra-Orthodox Judaism, the only way these women are going to succeed is if they stop following Ultra-Orthodox Judaism and stop producing children who do likewise. Otherwise, they’re stuck with the Abrahamic misogyny. Fortunately, this group of fervent misogynists is tiny; unfortunately, many of them have beaucoup bucks, which means they can and do influence policies well beyond their demographics.

As a temp, I once worked briefly for a massive company called “Olympia and York,” which was responsible for constructing many skyscrapers and other buildings in NYC and Toronto, among others. The owners of the company are Ultra-Orthodox Jews or Haredi who were extremely wealthy. I was the receptionist at their HQ in NYC for a few days. I had to wear not only a dress that was below my knees but also to make sure that my elbows were covered. Apparently, a woman’s elbows are just so very sexy. I don’t think they made me cover my hair, but I was just a goy, so they cut me some slack.

I also once worked as a receptionist for Sutton Place Synagogue in New York. The old, chain-smoking women there were horrendous and basically chased me out after a few hours – the same they had done with the previous receptionists. The rabbi’s wife was very nice and couldn’t understand why I was leaving. She asked me to stay, because I said, “Shalom, Sutton Place Synagogue” so well. 🙂

I had many experiences with Orthodox and Ultra-Orthodox Jews in NYC and Los Angeles. These latter are especially xenophobic and consider non-Jews to be inferior.

Ultra-Orthodox Jewish women continue protests against segregation in Jerusalem

The women sit in the front instead of the back as they are supposed to here. Some followers of ultra-Orthodox Judaism believe men and women should be separated in public, although it is illegal under Israeli law.  Women who challenge segregation have been insulted and spat upon….

In certain neighborhoods, advertisements showing women have been vandalized.  Women are encouraged to walk on the other side of the street from men, and recently, an 11-year-old schoolgirl complained on television of being harassed.  Critics say some rabbis condone these activities….

To base one’s worldview on genitalia is a mark of unconsciousness and unenlightenment. Is forcing women into such subservience and enslavement the only way these men can get mates?

    I spent some time in Israel
    I spent some time in Israel and experienced what you describe so precisely. Fundamentalist orthodox Judaism is not that different from fundamentalist, orthodox Islam !! In fact, some of the fundamentalist, orthodox Coptic christian, Greek orthodox and, roman Cathloic (Opus Dei, Jesuit, franciscan, etc) and Armenian orthodox sects are also similar in their horrendous misogyny.

    This is no mystery since all of these groups learnt about misogyny from the good old old testament!!!

    But, to be objective and fair, there is considerable misogyny in Goddess-centric religions like Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism ! Shinto society and Daoist society like the religions of India have Goddesses but are also incredibly misogynist!!

    Men should have a sense of shame but don’t seem to care or be aware of the instituitionalized misogyny in “all” cultures/countries/civilizations.

    Being a straight male, I am ashamed to confess that as long as men are ordained to write the “rules” there will be misogyny because that’s the way men from all cultures are. It is definitely not “genetic” but culturally and socially trained behaviour.

    I wonder if you are familiar with Bonobo chimpanzee society where females rule the roost and roles are reversed. The females have a ‘harem” of multiple male partners in their “group”. The multiple male Bonobo partners actually take part in child rearing, food gathering, group organization all activities not practised by other primates.

    Being a guy who is a strong supporter of women’s rights, human rights, equal rights for “all”, that is the most important reason, I oppose religion and refuse to kow-tow to a male-dominated God or religion.

  2. I’m afraid that Roman Cathoilics pretty much ignore the old testament. And much to your surprise, they and the majority of Muslims venerate the ‘woman’. What the issue is, is ‘culture’. And culture can be shaped formed and reformed.

    1. Neither Catholicism nor Islam “venerates the woman” in any significant way, shape or form, as should be obvious from one glance in the direction of where these ideologies have reigned supreme.

      The New Testament is full of sexism, and Christianity has imposed a male-dominant spirituality, with an all-male Trinity, reducing the divine female to a mere “virgin” sidekick. Women have been widely abused through Christian dogma, particularly because it is claimed in the biblical fairytale that Eve caused the downfall of mankind – a thoroughly sexist bias based on ancient creation myths regarding the Goddess. Ever heard of the “witch” persecutions conducted mainly by the Catholic Church?

      Quotes from the New Testament ([url]http://www.truthbeknown.com/christianscript.htm[/url])

      “It is well for a man not to touch a woman. But because of the temptation to immorality, each man should have his own wife and each woman her own husband.” 1 Corinthians 7:1-2

      “But I want you to understand that the head of every man is Christ, the head of every woman is her husband, and the head of Christ is God…. any woman who prays or prophesies with her head unveiled dishonors her head …For if a woman will not veil herself, then she should cut off her hair …For a man ought not to cover his head; since he is the image and glory of God; but woman is the glory of man. (For man was not made from woman, but woman from man. Neither was man created for woman, but woman for man.” 1 Corinthians 11:2-10

      “Wives, be submissive to your husbands, as to the Lord. For the husband is head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, and is himself its Savior. As the church is subject to Christ, so let wives also be subject in everything to their husbands.” Ephesians 5:21-24

      “…the women should keep silence in the churches. For they are not permitted to speak, but should be subordinate, as even the law says. If there is anything they desire to know, let them ask their husbands at home. For it is shameful for a woman to speak in church.” 1 Corinthians 14:34-35

      “Let a woman learn in silence with all submissiveness. I permit no woman to teach or have authority over men; she is to keep silent. For Adam was formed first, then Eve; and Adam was not deceived, but the woman was deceived and became a transgressor. Yet woman will be saved through bearing children, if she continues in faith and love and holiness, with modesty.” 1 Timothy 11:15

      “Wives, be subject to your husband, as is fitting in the Lord. Husbands, love your wives, and do not be harsh with them. Children, obey your parents in everything, for this pleases the Lord. Fathers, do not provoke your children, lest they become discouraged. Slaves, obey in everything those who are your earthly masters, not with eyeservice, as men-pleasers, but in singleness of heart, fearing the Lord.” Colossians 3:18-22

      The disingenuousness and ignorance when it comes to Islamic misogyny is equally disgraceful and appalling.

      Quotes from the Koran ([url]http://www.truthbeknown.com/islamquotes.htm[/url])

      “They ask you about menstruation. Say: ‘It is an indisposition. Keep aloof from women during their menstrual periods and do not approach them until they are clean again; when they are clean, have intercourse with them whence God enjoined you….'” Quran 2:222

      “Women are your fields: go, then, into your fields whence you please.” Quran 2:223

      “Men have authority over women because God has made the one superior to the other, and because they spend their wealth to maintain them. Good women are obedient. They guard their unseen parts because God has guarded them. As for those from whom you fear disobedience, admonish them and forsake them in beds apart, and beat them.” Quran 4:34

      “A male shall inherit twice as much as a female.” Quran 4:11

      “Call in two male witnesses from among you, but if two men cannot be found, then one man and two women whom you judge fit to act as witnesses…” Quran 2:282

      “[Forbidden to you are] married women, except those whom you own as slaves.” Quran 4:24

      SUMMARY OF KORANIC QUOTES REGARDING WOMEN

      Menstruating women are unclean, and men must stay away from them. Women are men’s “fields,” and men can have sex with them whenever they want. Men are superior to women and have authority over them, while women must obey men or risk being beaten. A woman is worth one-half of a man. Muslim men can own sex slaves.

      The world’s reigning religious and political ideologies, not mere and nebulous “culture,” are largely responsible for much of the rampant misogyny and sexism.

  3. Jews are anti-women – pornography and such
    The Jewish religion has always been against women and actively suppressed them. It was the communistic Zionism that freed Jewish women from under the heel of Jewish men by turning the religion into a race for self worshipping atheists.

  4. Many men have treated women this way since Eve caused the fall of mankind; however, Adam did not have the backbone to say “no” to temptation, so they were both thrown out of Paradise. Women have carried the blame ever since.

    Fortunately, Christ came to restore mankind to the knowledge of goodness and light, and most Christian women are treated as they should be. Women are to be the heart of the family, men the head of the family. Love is the key. Not just romantic love, but universal love. Love of neighbor, love of family, and love of self. To see yourself as God’s creation, to see God as Father, Savior and Redeemer–these people who despise women do not have this yet. I don’t know how these women can live as they do, marrying these men who despise them and giving birth to children–yuck!! Double yuck!!

    The day willl come when Christ returns to the earth to set things right. Men will cherish their wives as they should, and women will regain their rightful place. Family life should be a joy, not a burden. I do not believe these kind of protests will be successful, as the beliefs are too ingrained for centuries. You can’t force someone to respect you as a human being with a right to “life, liberty and happiness,” as our great Constitution says. But I hope they keep trying and that the movement grows.

  5. jews and muslims alike
    so all the rhetoric re misogony in the muslim religion is to detract from the jews doing exactly what they are objecting to and telling the west they want to impose sharia law when judaic law is already allowed in uk…what a sham and Ive just learned about it now…where have I been???

    1. Actually Jews and Muslims are not alike
      Women in Third World countries that happen to be Muslim exploit and oppress women. Poor men and children are also exlpoited.

      In more developed Muslim countries, there is very little subjugation. Islam instructs that women have rights and that they are different to men but equal under God’s eyes.

      Women in Islam have always had a right of divorce, a newly wed woman has rights of security so a man must provide her a dowry as security and a home. In developing Muslim countries, like Iraq was, there were more women graduates than men until the US destroyed it. Some of the assassinated Iraqi scientists and intelectuals in Iraq were women. They were victims of UK and US special forces hits. So much for women’s rights.

      There are nearly two billion Muslims in this world and the zionist Jew media have been propagandising every terrible and criminal incident that has happened in Muslim societies to slander and libel all Muslims.

      The irony is that the fastest growing religion in the world is Islam and the fastest conversion rates are amongst white Western woman who are sick of the over sexualisation of women in the misogynistic zionist Jew controlled media in the West.

      1. Terry,

        I wish the so-called “[i]zionist Jew media[/i]” were making it all up “[i]propagandising every terrible and criminal incident that has happened in Muslim societies to slander and libel all Muslims[/i],” but the facts are that there are over 18,000 terrorist attacks worldwide just since 9-11. From where I stand the media isn’t talking ENOUGH about all these attacks.

        Here are several videos of Muslims in their own words

        Three Things About Islam ([url]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ib9rofXQl6w[/url])

        There are real problems with Islam that must be worked out BEFORE they spread out of control:

        “Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant. The Koran, the Muslim book of scripture, should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth.”
        – Omar M. Ahmad, founder of (CAIR) July 4th 1998

        “Greater integration between Islam and the West depends on incorporation of Sharia law into the legal systems of Europe and the U.S.”
        – Ground Zero Mosque Imam, Faisal Abdul Rauf

        “The 9/11 hijackers should be honored as martyrs.”
        – Warith Deen Umar, Former Muslim Chaplain, New York Prisons

        “I am a traitor to America because my religion requires me to be. We pledge to wage jihad for the rest of our lives until either we implant Islam all over the world or meet our Lord as bearers of Islam.”
        – Samir Khan

        “I want to see the U.S become an Islamic nation.”
        -Ibrahim Hooper, CAIR Spokesperson

      2. From your message, it’s clear we don’t need the “Zionist Jews” to spread propaganda, since practically everything you’ve said here constitutes as much.

        Islam, Christianity and Judaism [i]all [/i]emanate from the same cruel and brutal monotheistic Abrahamic cultus. These various cults’ view of women is essentially the same, although Christianity merged a more Pagan perspective into the Jewish misogynistic bias that mitigates some of the women-hatred.

        Islam, however, takes pretty much the whole Jewish women-hating root and magnifies it. There is nothing remotely egalitarian about Islam’s treatment of women, and such comments as yours are completely disingenuous and astounding, since it only takes one glance at nations where Islam is dominant to see how badly women are treated there. (E.g., Iran, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan and Afghanistan.)

        Even in this thread alone, I’ve already addressed this fallacious nonsense about women in Islam – please stop with these appalling lies, which only serve to endanger women further. Here’s the depiction of women in the Koran ([url]http://truthbeknown.com/islamquotes.htm[/url]), again:

        “They ask you about menstruation. Say: ‘It is an indisposition. Keep aloof from women during their menstrual periods and do not approach them until they are clean again; when they are clean, have intercourse with them whence God enjoined you….'” Quran 2:222

        “Women are your fields: go, then, into your fields whence you please.” Quran 2:223

        “Men have authority over women because God has made the one superior to the other, and because they spend their wealth to maintain them. Good women are obedient. They guard their unseen parts because God has guarded them. As for those from whom you fear disobedience, admonish them and forsake them in beds apart, and beat them.” Quran 4:34

        “A male shall inherit twice as much as a female.” Quran 4:11

        “Call in two male witnesses from among you, but if two men cannot be found, then one man and two women whom you judge fit to act as witnesses…” Quran 2:282

        “[Forbidden to you are] married women, except those whom you own as slaves.” Quran 4:24

        SUMMARY OF KORANIC QUOTES REGARDING WOMEN

        Menstruating women are unclean, and men must stay away from them. Women are men’s “fields,” and men can have sex with them whenever they want. Men are superior to women and have authority over them, while women must obey men or risk being beaten. A woman is worth one-half of a man. Muslim men can own sex slaves.

        These utterly SEXIST quotes from Islam are taken largely from the Old Testament and Mosaic law. Here are the “fabulous rights” of women in Islam. ([url]http://freethoughtnation.com/womens-rights-in-islam.html[/url])

        It is further ludicrous to insist that all the world’s media is “Zionist Jew controlled,” as it clearly is not. Certain Jews definitely own media, and some of them may own parts of the “lefty liberal” media that predominates in the U.S. However, that lefty liberal media constantly assails Israel, promotes “Palestinian rights” and panders to Islam at every turn. Some of the media is owned by MUSLIM Saudis and others, and this lefty media has been pushing Muslim issues globally for decades. To reduce or deny the Saudi influence is not only to be foolish and ignorant but also insulting to these Muslims – are they all helpless and incompetent victims of the bad, bad Jews, who – according to this contention of “Jews controlling everything” – are apparently more intelligent and clever than any other group, including the inferior Muslims.

        Moreover, in this day and age of the internet, no one needs to turn to any one source for their information – we can get it straight from citizens. And citizens themselves, not just “Jew-owned media,” are exposing Islam. Much of my information as to the women-hating nature of Islam not only comes from the Koran and hadiths but also from ex-Muslims or “moderate” Muslims who have LIVED in countries like Iran, where misogyny reigns supreme.

        In the West, we have the [i]choice [/i]to dress in bikinis or live like nuns. We are not subjected to oppressive dress codes that pretend to have something to do with God but which in reality merely reflect the worst of the male nature. It’s frankly an insult to “God” – who, according to religionists, created Woman – to be so heinously oppressive of females. In much more enlightened communities, such as the Polynesian, women go naked, and men don’t act like savage rapists – on the contrary, they are not sexually rabid, as they are in the Muslim lands of gender apartheid. This obsession with gender, genitalia and sex is unenlightened and unevolved, not “godly.”

        The exploitation of women [i]everywhere [/i]is dependent significantly on attitudes and mentalities that in turn are founded upon religious ideologies in large part, including not only the Abrahamics but also Buddhism and Hinduism, which are not devoid of sexism.

        Half the world is either Christian or Muslim, both sexist cults that teach ingrained women-hatred. Depending on where one lives, chances are that at least 50% of the women-abusers in one’s country will be either Muslim or Christian. Jews make up a tiny percentage demographically, but certainly there are Jewish misogynists as well, as this article highlights.

        Time to take the head out of the sand.

  6. God wants us to be kind and yield one to another, all; to treat one another like gold, never lording it over anyone.

    THE NICOLAITAN DOCTRINE IS WHAT LORD JESUS CHRIST HAD IN MIND WHEN HE COMMANDED THE 12 APOSTLES OF WHAT THEY WILL NOT DO; AS IN LORDING IT OVER OTHERS.

    **This “lording it over”, in the hated (hated by Lord Jesus Christ) Nicolaitan Doctrine is what Christ, Lord Jesus had in mind when He Knew how some, throughout the centuries and up to today, would “rule” or lord it over women and men for any reason especially spiritual teachings.

    ALERT: We are the creation; Not the Creator. Does that make any sense. If you are listening to His Spirit you will know and truly understand this Truth. Humble down and tone it down, please all who “think” they are “chosen” of God and have “arrived”.

    There is a satanic lie directly “refuting” how our Holy God Views 1/2 of His family, women. It is this terribly dangerous act against God that is a direct cause of the great falling away from Him which has occured and is in steadfast place right now. When mankind takes the unholy stance as the head, when Christ and HE ONLY is the Head, this satanic falling away was prophecied to take place and is here. Done.**

    Here is Lord Jesus Christ Explaining how the doctrine of the Nicolaitans is not to be used among His people.

    Matthew 20:25-28 But Jesus called them together and said, “You know that the rulers in this world lord it over their people, and officials flaunt their authority over those under them.

    Yet it shall not be so among you; but whoever desires to become great among you, let him be your servant.

    “And whoever desires to be first among you, let him be your slave–

    “just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to Serve, and to give His Life a ransom for many.”

    Who were the first people that Christ appeared to after He Resurrected? Women, right? And who did He Command that these women preach to? Men, Right? Matthew 28 Mark 16 Christ chose men to go out to preach at that time because man’s laws and man’s traditions at that time did not allow women to do that.

    Women actually were/are to be witnesses to the Body of Christ. The brothers and sisters in Christ are supposed to be spiritually discerning in all areas and especially in this. Anything else and you are lying to yourself, to others and to God. Are you sure you want to continue on with this? If you do, you are surely going up against Lord Jesus Christ Himself. Not a good place to be.

    Which is why Christ cleared all of that up for us when He Appeared to women first to go preach the Truth that Christ had Foretold to all of them. He does not want anyone to teach man’s rules and traditions and think it’s from Him. He wants us to know what He Wants done and taught in His Name. Please get over this horrible satanic prejudice because that is exactly what it is.

    John 5:39-40 “You search the Scriptures because you think they give you eternal life. But the Scriptures point to Me! Yet you refuse to come to Me to receive this life.

    Here are just a few Scriptures which tell us that Christ Himself, the Author of Truth, will Teach us. When He Teaches us, we will learn and believe. He tells us this.

    John 4:30-42 Many Samaritans from the village believed in Jesus because the woman had said, “He told me everything I ever did!” When they came out to see Him, they begged Him to stay at their village. So He stayed for two days, long enough for many of them to hear His Message and believe. Then they said to the woman, “Now we believe because we have heard Him ourselves, not just because of what you told us. He is indeed the Savior of the world.”

    John 5:39-40 You search the Scriptures, for you believe they give you eternal life. And the Scriptures point to Me! Yet you won’t come to Me so that I can give you this Life Eternal.
    2 Corinthians 3:5-6 Not that we are competent of ourselves to claim anything as coming from us; our competence is from God, Who also has made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the Spirit: for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives Life.

    1John+ 2:27 But you have received the Holy Spirit, and He lives within you, so you don’t need anyone to teach you what is true. For the Spirit teaches you all things, and what He teaches is true–it is not a lie. So continue in what He has taught you, and continue to live in Christ.

    1John 2:19-21 They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would have continued with us; but they went out that they might be made manifest, that none of them were of us. But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and you know all things. I have not written to you because you do not know the truth, but because you know it, and that no lie is of the truth.

    1Timothy 4:16 Keep a close watch on yourself and on your teaching. Stay true to what is right, and God will save you and those who hear you.

    The bible is a map, so to speak, which leads us to HIM, NOW. Hopefully we will qualify to be able to serve with Him when He Returns.

    Luke 21:36 Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

    Let’s look at what God is doing NOW. He moves like the wind; never stagnant. He moves on ahead in us so we cannot stay where we are. His Spirit and Life are everything.

    John 3:7-8 Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again. ‘The Spirit breathes where He wills, or where He pleases, and you hear His voice, but you do not know where He comes from or where He is going, and so it is with everyone born of the Spirit’.

    Mark 15:40-41 There were also women looking on afar off: among whom was Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James the less and of Joses, and Salome; They had been followers of Jesus and had cared for him while he was in Galilee. Many other women who had come with him to Jerusalem were also there.

    Mark 16:7 “But go, tell His disciples–and Peter–that He is going before you into Galilee; there you will see Him, as He said to you before He died.

    9-11 Now when He rose early on the first day of the week, He appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom He had cast seven demons. She went and told those who had been with Him, as they mourned and wept. And when they heard that He was alive and had been seen by her, they did not believe.

    12-14 Afterward He appeared in a different form to two of His followers who were walking from Jerusalem into the country. And they went and told it to the rest, but they did not believe them either. Later He appeared to the eleven as they sat at the table; and He rebuked their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they did not believe those who had seen Him after He had risen.

    Was it a man or a woman who realized the Holy purpose of the act of anointing Lord Jesus Christ’s Feet?

    John 11:2 It was that Mary who anointed the Lord with fragrant oil and wiped His feet with her hair, whose brother Lazarus was sick.

    John 12:3-8 Then Mary took a pound of very costly oil of spikenard, anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped His feet with her hair. And the house was filled with the fragrance of the oil. But one of His disciples, Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son, who would betray Him, said, “Why was this fragrant oil not sold for three hundred denarii and given to the poor?”
    This he said, not that he cared for the poor, but because he was a thief, and had the money box; and he used to take what was put in it. But Jesus said, “Let her alone; she has kept this for the day of My burial. “For the poor you have with you always, but Me you do not have always.”

    John 20:14 Now when she had said this, she turned around and saw Jesus standing there, and did not know that it was Jesus. Jesus said to her, “Woman, why are you weeping? Whom are you seeking?” She, supposing Him to be the gardener, said to Him, “Sir, if You have carried Him away, tell me where You have laid Him, and I will take Him away.” Jesus said to her, “Mary!” She turned and said to Him, “Rabboni!” (which is to say, Teacher). Jesus said to her, “Do not cling to Me, for I have not yet ascended to My Father; but go to My brethren and say to them, ‘I am ascending to My Father and your Father, and to My God and your God.’ ”

    All of Matthew 23 in particular: Matthew 23: 5-12 “But all their works they do to be seen by men. They make their phylacteries broad and enlarge the borders of their garments. “They love the best places at feasts, the best seats in the synagogues, “greetings in the marketplaces, and to be called by men, ‘Rabbi, Rabbi.’ “But you, do not be called ‘Rabbi’; for One is your Teacher, the Christ, and you are all brethren.

    “Do not call anyone on earth your father; for One is your Father, He who is in heaven. “And do not be called teachers; for One is your Teacher, the Christ.

    “But he who is greatest among you shall be your servant. “And whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.

    Acts of the apostles 2:17-18 And on My menservants and on My maidservants I will pour out My Spirit in those days; And they shall prophesy. ‘And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God, That I will pour out of My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, Your young men shall see visions, Your old men shall dream dreams.

    Galatians 3:28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus.

    Acts 18:26 When Priscilla and Aquila heard him preaching boldly in the synagogue, they took him aside and explained the way of God even more accurately.

    Just to mention only one of the many instances that Paul DID acknowledge woman are 1/2 of God’s family and should never be kept “silent”. This would be to Paul absurd and to God an abomination.

    This is one of the main reasons that there is such a FALLING AWAY from God up to today; unauthorized “authority” grabbed by men who listen to their own wisdom and prejudices.

    When that girl or wife or man stands before God, and she has been taught crazy doctrine, (one being man only being able to teach even though God NEVER SAID this, thus being led astray, will God then accept the excuse that it was her husband’s or their father’s fault that she was led astray? No, it is her responsibility and hers alone to go to Christ and to HIM ONLY for her/their/anyone’s Spiritual teaching.

    Luke 40-42 But Martha was distracted with much serving, and she approached Him and said, “Lord, do You not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Therefore tell her to help me.” And Jesus answered and said to her, “Martha, Martha, you are worried and troubled about many things. “But one thing is needed, and Mary has chosen that good part, which will not be taken away from her.”

    Joel 2:28-29 “And it shall come to pass afterward That I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, Your old men shall dream dreams, Your young men shall see visions. And also on My menservants and on My maidservants I will pour out My Spirit in those days.

    Acts of the apostles 2:17-18 And on My menservants and on My maidservants I will pour out My Spirit in those days; And they shall prophesy. ‘And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God, That I will pour out of My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, Your young men shall see visions, Your old men shall dream dreams.

    1. Please shove the idiotic bible spouting up your ass. Thank you.

  7. your intreprtation about Quran and Islam is totally wrong and based on your free will instead.

    1. Whose “interpretation” of the Koran are you referring to?

      What you have said is simply a parroted Muslim apology with no basis in reality.

      Here are the quotes again [i]from the Koran itself[/i] concerning women – no “interpretation” is needed, although I do summarize what these verses themselves say. There’s no “interpretation,” just a [i]summary [/i]- there’s a difference.

      “They ask you about menstruation. Say: ‘It is an indisposition. Keep aloof from women during their menstrual periods and do not approach them until they are clean again; when they are clean, have intercourse with them whence God enjoined you….'” Quran 2:222

      “Women are your fields: go, then, into your fields whence you please.” Quran 2:223

      “Men have authority over women because God has made the one superior to the other, and because they spend their wealth to maintain them. Good women are obedient. They guard their unseen parts because God has guarded them. As for those from whom you fear disobedience, admonish them and forsake them in beds apart, and beat them.” Quran 4:34

      “A male shall inherit twice as much as a female.” Quran 4:11

      “Call in two male witnesses from among you, but if two men cannot be found, then one man and two women whom you judge fit to act as witnesses…” Quran 2:282

      “[Forbidden to you are] married women, except those whom you own as slaves.” Quran 4:24

      SUMMARY OF KORANIC QUOTES REGARDING WOMEN

      Menstruating women are unclean, and men must stay away from them. Women are men’s “fields,” and men can have sex with them whenever they want. Men are superior to women and have authority over them, while women must obey men or risk being beaten. A woman is worth one-half of a man. Muslim men can own sex slaves.

      No interpretation – that’s why the Koran itself says.

      Moreover, I am just reflecting the beliefs of these MUSLIM SPOKESMEN at the link here ([url]htp://islamreality.wordpress.com[/url]). Are they also “interpreting” the Koran incorrectly? Then you need to tell THEM that. Here’s what these MUSLIM SPOKESMEN themselves are supporting:

      Islamic supremacy and global domination
      Prohibition of music and singing
      Imprisonment, flogging, torture and death for homosexuals
      Jihad to force Islam on the world
      Jews as apes and pigs
      Jews as the eternal enemies of Muslims
      Osama bin Laden in Paradise
      Raping women okay in Islam
      Female genital mutilation “obligatory” in Islam
      Sex slaves for Muslim men
      Child marriage/rape
      Mohammed having sex with a 9-year-old girl
      Wife beating
      Death for “insulting” Mohammed
      Death to apostates and infidels
      Genocide of Americans
      Jihad to “raid the world”
      Non-Muslims being not innocent and subject to death

      Again, if you don’t agree with these MUSLIMS and claim they are “misinterpreting” Islam and the Koran, you need to tell [i]them [/i]that.

  8. The day will come when the superstitions of religions will be done away with. The Christian religion is no different, as it too, reviles women to a lower status….I am a former christian, who gave it up because of this.It’s time women everywhere banned together to stop this insane attack….We are a HUGE part of the human race; deserving of dignity, and respect.

  9. Dear Susanne,

    “The day will come when the superstitions of religions will be done away with. The Christian religion is no different, as it too, reviles women to a lower status….I am a former christian, who gave it up because of this.It’s time women everywhere banned together to stop this insane attack….We are a HUGE part of the human race; deserving of dignity, and respect.”

    I agree that the “Christian religion” has placed women to a lower status and those who do that are 100% wrong. They are wrong because God, Who manifested Himself as a Man, The Christ, never wanted it nor wants it that way.

    The reason is that many in all religions are erroneously taught. People listen to the “preacher/pastor/father this or that/imams/rabbis /popes etc and what ever other human, grabbing “titles”, and raise themselves above what the Creator Has in Mind.

    All religions/denominations and title grabbers use God to make money off His Back, use God’s Name to go war and to trod people down. This is horrible.

    Which is why I ask God Himself to Teach me as to what He Truly wants from me. The number one thing is I found out is to go directly to God and persevere in learning from Him only; NEVER a title grabber.

    I also keep this in mind. Politics, which drive wars do cause orphans, widows, widowers, famine, homelessness and all of the depravities, debaucheries, and atrocities that have followed with the making of orphans, widows, widowers, famine homelessness etc. No sane person can really take it all in.

    Yet many in the false “Christian” churches, synagogues, mosques simply look the other way. They are in deep delusion because they listen to their titled ones who teach falsely.

    They are listening to and do the deeds of the unseen evil that runs this world.

    The unseen evil looks for self-elevated men and women who have no idea nor seem to care that what they do is deadly to themselves as well as deadly to the innocent.

    Please don’t give up on God. Learn from Him as God truly is worth seeking 24/07.

    1. Please don’t give up on God
      Anonymous. Don’t you think it would have made a difference if God was represented as a She? If She has written the Law so men and women could follow Her word then mysogyny, rape, genocide and child abuse may not have been part of your religion. The fact (according to the Bible) that God represented Himself as a dying Man upon the cross would then have been rejected as unnecessary and not worthy of Her wisdom, for it has been by wandering from the immutable laws of reason that the Almighty was so reduced by men! Don’t you think that She would be better suited to represent Her gospels void of these horrible tales? Why is it that women adore this book when they are represented as inferior to men? Of all people women should spurn the Bible for then it could be revered as the cradle of humanity.
