Why Do Women Subjugate Themselves to Religion?

In Fails, People, Religion on May 8, 2011 at 12:16 am

Serious question. Why do Jews, Catholics, Muslim and Mormon women adhere to a religion that considers them less capable than men? There are very few women rabbis, no women priests, Muslim women can’t be an Iman to men and Mormon women can’t head the church. Why?

This question and the reality of the answer is one of the reasons why I stay away from organized religion. The answer is: because men say so. Since when do modern women listen to that misogynist bullshit? It’s as if women have all kinds of self-esteem when it comes to pushing for pay equality, equal rights in employment and the right to choose what happens to their body but, hey, let them attend their place of worship and they’re content to be second-class citizens.

There is no reason whatsoever that women should not be as equal as men in religion. Tell me differently if you like but  please don’t quote scripture. We are all created by God; all of us have individual talents. If a woman is drawn or called to serve as a rabbi, a priest, an Iman or a church leader why is this calling different from a man’s?

Serious question.

  1. “but please don’t quote scripture.”

    That is your answer right there and you completely reject it and therefore the reasoning you are asking to have produced. That is like saying in a court of law, have a trial without using evidence or law books. How do you know there is a God if you don’t believe in any scriptures that put forth the idea of a divinity? Your “question” is nothing more than rhetorical.
