1 Timothy 2:12:

"But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence."

Yah bronze-age moral standards!

Good grief. Either that is a horrible photoshop, or the head of the one on the right is 25% the size of the woman's head on the left (back row). And neither of them have necks to speak of.

Wow, what a mind-fark, Southern Baptists can be small-minded sexist idiots.

I'm getting a lot more use out of this then I thought I would...which saddens me.

There's them upstanding small-town morals for you.

Great. Now we got priests of both sexes I don't listen to.

I don't get it. I thought "seen and not heard" was a good thing.

Maybe it's a good thing. Perhaps the good folks at Gospel Today will understand what it feels like when the Moral Outrage Brigade gets on your case and you roll your eyes so hard they fall out of your head.

Who cares if you agree with female pastors? It's a reality for many Chritians, and a newsworthy trend.

This is what disappoints me in fundies so much -- they are so insecure in their beliefs (or ignorant in their beliefs) that they don't want anyone even talking about things they don't agree with.

"Some churches have female pastors!? Whoa, nelly! Don't want that idea getting out!"

They prefer partially clothed young boys, right?

That's Catholic priests, not Baptists. Baptists are the money hungry ones.

Diogenes: This is what disappoints me in fundies so much -- they are so insecure in their beliefs (or ignorant in their beliefs) that they don't want anyone even talking about things they don't agree with.

This. There are so many issues where they want to assert their moral superiority while barring everyone access to the alternatives. Take, for example, the issue with Bristol Palin's baby. Fundamentalists are praising her for the decision to keep her baby, yet they want to take away that very choice. Isn't it more moral to have a descision and choose the moral one than to never face a moral descision at all?

These are the same sort of people who think that atheists have no morals because they don't believe God is watching thier actions. Does that mean that the only thing keeping them from sinning is the fear of punishment? Isn't it more moral to act morally for its own sake, not from fear of retribution?

/Sorry to ramble, but it's one facet of Fundamentalism that disturbs me.

It really blows my mind how against hearing other's ideas some people are. Oh, and if you do bring up some idea they don't like, they will say you are "attacking" them..

Forty-Two: Isn't it more moral to have a descision and choose the moral one than to never face a moral descision at all?

I never thought of it that way. If you believe a person is, by nature, "good" (as did Thomas Aquinas) then, by our very nature, we would select the right path. It seems, however, that members of the Christian Right are more inclined to take the Augustinian view where we are inherently evil.

sad, when I clicked on the link I was thinking "what, are they up in arms because they're on the cover and not pregnant and in the kitchen?" then I read the article and said "holy crap they ARE"
 
2008-09-19 08:51:33 PM
I'm no fundamentalist, but I too support pulling that magazine due to the women who happen to be on the cover and their shocking lack of hotness.
 
2008-09-19 08:53:21 PM
It's easy to take a vow of celibacy when no body wants to have sex with you.

You beat me to it...next time I'll read further.

Why do you take two baptists fishing with you?
If you only take one, he'll drink all your beer.

"But I suffer not a woman to teach"

Teach what? They're pastors, to teach they'd need to actually increase someone's knowledge.
 
2008-09-19 09:01:00 PM
The whole Bible is sexist. They're just following God's example.
 
2008-09-19 09:01:20 PM
There's no misogyny like Christian misogyny. No wonder why they prefer little boys.
 
2008-09-19 09:03:12 PM
"Southern Baptist polity says that's a role reserved for men."

Why am I not surprised that it was southern baptists who complained and said this?

Again, that would be Catholic priests. This article is about Baptists, who prefer to just cheat on their spouses and steal silly people's money. In the Baptist world, women exist to bear children, bake pies, and use way too much hairspray while smiling huge scary saccharine smiles.

And tell you that you'll go to hell if you don't

Worship like they tell you
Flirt with the opposite sex
Drink

Anything else that I am missing?

I was raised as a Southern Baptists and is a main reason I disdain organized religion and their self-righteousness.

These are the people who gather for 1 hour a week on Sunday, then behaving like a**holes the rest of the week.

QFT. I grew up in a Southern Baptist family. It's a big reason why I don't speak to my family anymore.

Fundamentalist religions are fundamentally the same. The retard with the loudest mouth makes the rules and twists the scriptures his way.

I'm not sure whom to thank for the fact that my Southern-Baptist-born-and-bred mother didn't raise me with that garbage.

Probably my Episcopalian-agnostic father.

The Taliban are "conservative" Muslims if you use the same definition of the word as you do when referring to Christians. Both groups look back to a time in the past where they feel we were at a moral utopia. Most "conservatives" are just wrapped up in nostalgia for an age that never really existed.
