The blog AND the governor are idiots.  If you want to use the bible to justify your misogyny, you quote 1 TIMOTHY, not Corinthians.

"A woman should learn in quietness and full submission. I do not permit a woman to teach or to assume authority over a man; she must be quiet."

FTFADude, it's right there: the sixth, seventh, and eighth words. Also, the last three. In. The. Church.

Well, see, the Apostle Paul says the church isn't a building, it's the people. The church is us. So when he says you need a penis, what he means is he needs a penis in himself.

Ah the church of Christ. I grew up in this  version of christianity.  I'll give them credit for encouraging me to be knowledgeable about the bible. It led to my eventual embrace of atheism. All of their congregations are independent, and there's a lot of subtle attempts to control the kids, in my experience.

I suppose that's fair enough against people that choose to belong to the church. But as the article and the header stated, this artifact (my term) is talking about prayer at government council meetings. No women leading prayer in the church or those they're doing in government....

I'm perpetually amazed that women with the vote allow these people to attain office, and to somehow breed without the assistance of labs.

No, the "what happened to the separation between church and state, and why the hell is there a religious invocation before a government meeting" haven't been said yet.

Because small town governments just love to waste their money on paying the Church of Satan's legal fees.

A follow up on my experience.  There were the meek and humble women in the church, but there were also a crapload of women that were very good puppet masters.

Remember, more white women vote for Mr "grab them by the pussy" than another woman. There is no solidarity among women.

I rarely agree with that less than a man you mention, but I do agree there's a lot of vote fraud out there--usually in the form of suppression...

I'm against any religious doctrine being invoked in public meetings just for reasons like this guy who wants official city business to adhere to his particular dogmatic concerns.

The blogger shouldn't try to out lawyer a Bible Thumper.

It just makes them both idiots.

You know why the verse doesn't apply here? Because it's not 1020, it's 2020 and you shouldn't be waving the Bible around as if it's anything more than your own personal favorite book of fiction.

I was asked to do a prayer before my local city council meeting once and started by saying, "God of the foolish and God of the wise..." After the meeting, I was told that I had been banned from praying for them ever again because one council member thought I was talking about him when I said 'God of the foolish.'

Is there a name for that little bullshiatty expression he's wearing in the photo? It's almost a universal thing among southern religious figures and other crooks, that little hillbilly drawl out-turned lip thing. I'm gonna call it a "Beavis" until someone invents something better.

Sooooo, my BIL is an evangelical. Women are to be lead by men (Promise Keepers/Gays are Ruining America!! and everything else).  When I pointed out to him that his own mother was their churches pastor and that she is in violation of the book club rules that he subscribes too, his response was, " That's different."
