Sheep Lawsuits Feminism and Venn Diagrams
I'm have often wondered why so many women support religion, I have always supposed that it has to do with the fear of death and separation from loved ones. But then again, maybe it's the certainty that it supposedly provides.
But Christian Feminists? Really this is truly an oxymoron
Lets see the compatibility:-
Feminism is a collection of movements aimed at defining, establishing, and defending equal political, economic, and social rights for women. In addition, feminism seeks to establish equal opportunities for women in education and employment. A feminist is a "person whose beliefs and behaviour are based on feminism."
Christianity is whatever you want it to be, whenever it is convenient for you, as long as you believe Jesus Christ was some sort of godly figure, and will save you from death. You have a choice to be in one of 33,830 denominations.
But it comes down to men on top, and women down the bottom...look see! I have even made a Venn Diagram.
I have often commented on the UK Nadine Dories as one woman who pushes the Christian view of abortion and sex education. This basically consists of the first will stop, if the second is all about saying no. This is just plain weird.
Australia has her equal in Melinda Tankard Reist, who famously was once an adviser to Sen Brian Harradine, the man who kept RU486 out of the hands of Australian woman for as long as he could.
No place for sheep is the blog of Jennifer Wilson, who also writes in various other places, such as ABCs The Drum.
On the 14th January Jennifer received a notice from MTR and her lawyers to delete all posts about her, claiming that she was upset about being called a Baptist, and was duplicitous and deceptive about her religion.
As you might guess this brings lawsuits in Australia to a new level, it doesn't look to be a case of seeking to clarify the facts and for a correction, but as a means to silence someone through Lawfare.
Australia has a semi-nationalised healthcare system called Medicare, maybe it's time the Legal system was nationalised as well, as it's only seems to serve those who can afford it. But then that's why it's called a Legal system, and not a Justice system.
PZ Meyers gets into the act
As does Russell Blackford
The Australian Sex Party also add their bit, and they are not happy.
Actually I never asked my friend Spitfire about her actual Church.
When a man sells his daughter as a slave, she will not be freed at the end of six years as the men are. If she does not please the man who bought her, he may allow her to be bought back again. But he is not allowed to sell her to foreigners, since he is the one who broke the contract with her. And if the slave girl's owner arranges for her to marry his son, he may no longer treat her as a slave girl, but he must treat her as his daughter. If he himself marries her and then takes another wife, he may not reduce her food or clothing or fail to sleep with her as his wife. If he fails in any of these three ways, she may leave as a free woman without making any payment. (Exodus 21:7-11 NLT)
