“Let us consider the qualities that make Mary such an ideal in Christian teaching: she is meek, she is silent, she is obedient and she is sexless. What does it say about Christian attitudes towards real women that the only woman who can be venerated is one who has had everything that would make her human stripped from her?”

    This is exactly why I don’t understand why some women would want to be vicars or bishops. Perhaps they just ‘leave out that bit’ during their sermons?

    Hell, religion would evaporate were it not for strong support from women. I don’t get it either.

    The Stockholm syndrome is what comes to mind when I hear of how people fall in line to submit to all that blarney. Aren’t most preachers men? Does not man; in his arrogance have power over “the entire World”? Why do you think we (the USA) did not pass the ERA amendment? Power has remained in the hands to the male preachers for eons now. However, there is one sure thing… Change is a coming! Viva the revolution!!
