Women Need To Throw Away The Shackles Of Religion by frosbel2(m): 1:44pm On Jan 06
I keep wondering why almost all religions abuse women and relegate them to the background, almost as if they are some sort of inferior breed of animal. Throughout the bible, women were told to hide themselves for a period during menstruation, stay with husbands who had previously raped them, not speak a word in church and concentrate almost solely on rearing children. Further, women were looked upon as war booty, enslaved, raped and killed. They had no say and no rights.

The catholic church is a major culprit in the abuse of women. Rendering intelligent and fertile women to a dark existence of nun-ship , women were often raped by Priests, babies aborted, money and goods extorted from widows and hideous cover-up of all these crimes using some of the most gruesome methods ever known to man. Women were accused of witchcraft and murdered in horrendous ways.

Evangelical churches are no different. Women are constantly sexually abused, denigrated and silenced in the church. The Lords Chosen turns women into miserable objects while deeper life women dress as though going for a funeral service. It’s always the women who have to behave in certain ways so as not to tempt men into sin. When a pastor screws a young innocent church girl, his wife and the congregation turn on her and totally destroy her reputation while the randy pastor (so many of them ) continues to 'serve god'.

In some sects of Islam, women are covered to such an extent that only eyes are shown. They are hidden in harems and live lives that are totally controlled by the alpha male. He is her lord and master and without him she is nothing. Woe betide her if she decides to leave the faith, she is sought and murdered as a lesson to others who may wish to embark on a similar path.

During my days in deeper life, I always thought that the women looked miserable, unhappy, unkempt , and unfulfilled. Their entire life was monitored and controlled by the church even when seeking for a husband. Imagine been told by some pastor male, that a particular brother you prayed for is not your husband because God told him so - consider the sheer arrogance. I also did not fully understand why women and men were segregated in seating arrangements in those days at Gbagada. Why? Do they not trust their HOLY BRETHREN to remain sexually pure? Communication between male and female was observed, and prolonged conversations were deemed to be suspicious. Beautiful women dressed to hide their beauty and look miserable. They were told to endure abusive marriages and keep praying for deliverance as divorce was never an option. Indeed, many women endured a miserable existence of abuse without saying a word.

I believe that WOMEN need to throw off the shackles of religion just as Africans threw away the shackles of slavery. Women need to awaken, be empowered and be great. They need to respect their husbands but not worship him, they need not tolerate abusive men much longer, they should educate themselves and go and do greater things, they should dress modestly but brightly and look beautiful and happy. They should have a social life outside the confines of the home and they should be seen an co-equal with the man. The man is not GOD, he is a protector and co-provider period.

Things are indeed changing rapidly here in the west and to a certain extent in Africa, but MORE needs to be done to liberate women from the clutches of ILLITERATE, IGNORANT and SUPERSTITIOUS religion, so that they can live fulfilled, happy and contended lives.

if I begin to talk about misogyny wey I don witness for church ehn e.g I was more than shocked when a minister said women shouldn't go to the gym cause going to the gym she'd have to wear training gear which would expose all the curves of her body hence her indirectly sinning cause probably the gym instructor or anyone on the street might lust on her, like what the actual fuçk, you need to see me then I was cringing my brains out. said it was wrong to go to the gym!!! the guy also said having male friends as a married woman or talking with male guys as long as the husband disapproves of it cause he's jealous is wrong, hence it's a sin to keep male friends cuz of that. they always talk about what the women should and shouldn't do (these things are always weird,) while leaving the men aside

Funny thing is , these same ministers are serial adulterers and in many cases paedophiles. Furthermore, it is a proven fact that the way a woman dresses is irrelevant when it comes down to sexual predator behaviour. We see this in ISLAMIC countries where despite the way women dress, rape and sexual abuse is rampant.

In the west where women dress the way they want sexual abuse incidents are very low, whereas in countries where religious dogma is upheld sexual abuse is rampant.

I also think women, need to respect themselves and not allow these so called ministers talk to them anyhow.

There is plenty to criticise in Islam's view of women. Last year, the Observer told the story of a man in Basra who stamped on, suffocated and then stabbed to death his 17-year-old daughter for becoming infatuated with a British soldier. The relationship apparently amounted to a few conversations, but her father learnt she had been seen in public talking to the soldier. When the Observer talked to Abdel-Qader Ali two weeks later, he said: "Death was the least she deserved. I don't regret it. I had the support of all my friends who are fathers, like me, and know what she did was unacceptable to any Muslim that honours his religion

This was clearly extreme, but the truth is that the God many people believe in - whether Muslim, Christian or Jewish - hates women. Take America's Southern Baptist Convention, which declares in its faith and mission statement: "A wife is to submit herself graciously to the servant leadership of her husband." That's fair enough, isn't it? After all, he's probably stronger than she is.

Or there's the Catholic church. The Pope put things more suavely in an address in 2008: "Faced with cultural and political trends that seek to eliminate, or at least cloud and confuse, the sexual differences inscribed in human nature, considering them a cultural construct, it is necessary to recall God's design that created the human being masculine and feminine, with a unity and at the same time an original difference." The insistence on difference is the necessary first step to insisting on inequality and subordination and it is a step that popes have been taking at regular intervals for decades.

In November 2006, Nicaragua enacted a ban on all abortion, with no exceptions, even to save the mother's life. The law was ratified by the National Assembly in September 2007. Both the original enactment and the vote in September 2007 were widely attributed to the influence of the Catholic church. In a report this month, the United Nations Committee against torture called Nicaragua's total ban on abortion a violation of human rights.

Then there is Judaism. In one neighbourhood in Jerusalem, religious seminaries flank streets with yellow signs that warn: "If you're a woman and you're not properly dressed - don't pass through our neighbourhood."

So why is it so often women who fill the pews? Is it a form of Stockholm syndrome? Religions do a good job of training people to be obedient and loyal to the authorities and women in particular are raised to be both devout and submissive. Religions are sticky: they are hard to abandon and that is doubly true for women, given that subordination and unshakable fidelity are their chief duties.

The fact that women are defined as different from men ("complementary" is the religious euphemism) and confined to narrower, more monotonous lives as a result, means that they have more need of the excitements and passions of religion. For women, religion often is the heart of a heartless world. All they have to give up in exchange is their right to shape their own lives; as long as they behave themselves, all will go swimmingly.

The intimate and inescapable connection that contemporary liberal believers like to see between God and love, theism and compassion, is largely a modern invention. It's far from universal now and it was vanishingly rare in the past. St Francis was an eccentric, not an exemplar. The painful truth is that still, to this day, most people who believe in a god believe in a god who is often vindictive, punitive and sometimes just plain cruel. The Ryan report on abuse of children in Irish industrial schools, released two weeks ago, provides a mountain of searing evidence for that. For decade after decade, generation upon generation, the religious congregations in charge of the institutions saw nothing wrong.

One survivor of Goldenbridge, the most notorious industrial school for girls, run by the Sisters of Mercy, told the commission: "The screaming of children will stay with me for the rest of my life about Goldenbridge. I still hear it, I still haven't recovered from that. Children crying and screaming, it was just endless, it never, never stopped for years in that place." Many of those children were there simply because their mothers were unmarried or divorced.

The God we have in the Big Three monotheisms is a God who originated in a period when male superiority was absolutely taken for granted. That time has passed, but the superior male God remains and that God holds women in contempt. That God is the one who puts "His" imprimatur on all those tyrannical laws. That God is a product of history, but taken to be eternal, which is a bad combination. That is the God who hates women.

So why do so many women put up with it? Partly because God gives with one hand what "He" takes away with the other - God consoles people for the very harshness that God creates. It's the sad, familiar, heartrending bargain in which the victim embraces the perpetrator, in some complicated, confusing, all-too-human mix of appeasement, need and stubborn loyalty. The fact that the embrace is all on one side is resolutely ignored.

Religion generally is SEXIST and discriminatory towards women. The fact and brutal truth is women have refused to read the Bible. They mostly rely on what their pastors tell them. The pastors on their part cherry pick what to tell them and the women believe.
Women need to educate themselves and read what the Bible says. In my opinion NO woman can read the Bible and remain a Christian unless she is a dummy. The Bible is the most SEXIST book ever written and completely AGAINST women.
It is all there in the religious book of the Christians and no woman stands a chance of being free if she adheres to the contents.
If I am challenged I can provide enough passages that completely relegate women to second class beings.

To a certain extent you are right. Unfortunately many people are gullible and they need our help coupled with patience to be free from their religious delusions. In many cases, , a lot of our women are in a Stockholm Syndrome situation and others are afraid to break from the status quo due to cultural reasons.

THERE ARE PEOPLE (MOSTLY MEN) WHO JUSTIFY THE TERRIBLE ACTS OF TERRORISM BY YAHWEH IN THE OLD TESTAMENT , AND THE ABSURD INACCURACIES IN THE NEW TESTAMENT, THE SAME WAY OTHER MEN IN INDIA AND SAUDI JUSTIFY THE DEGRADATION, MOLESTATION, AND EXECUTION OF WOMEN AND CHILDREN FOR NO JUST CAUSE.

What you just stated is a fact.

I actually stopped my wife from going to Christ Embassy to listen to all that gibberish and 'witness' all the fake miracles involved. My sons went once and vowed never to go again ( they were only little then and yet knew it was bullsh1t ). Thankfully she has stopped going and is of a sounder mind that when she was at church. Her church and many others in the UK are made up of 80% of women and 20% of men, that says a lot.

The key thing in these churches ( of course, I would know after two decades of attendance ) , is that they programme their members and herd them like cattle into obedience. Those who want to leave are threatened, shamed or ostracised and those who know too much are kicked out with their reputation in tatters.

These people are not Christ like ( if there is such a thing ). They are the real heathen, totally immersed in myth and fable and unable to think outside the context of the 'inerrant' bible ( haha ).

There are thousands, no, millions of women smarter than their husbands but religion dumbed and numbed them.

While religion still thrive in Nigeria isn't because men loves it, it's simply an avenue given to them to control women freely.
They are so quick to quote that you submit to them according to the holy book thereby emotionally draining them cos of the fear of hell.
