    Bryan Fischer, Pat Robertson and many others on the extreme religious right have been preaching veiled threats toward women for a long time now and for some reason they are never called on their behavior. In fact the 700 club is doing well. So as Pat would join me in prayer while we denigrate women, but do not forget to send me $700.00...

    Women are responsible especially slatternly ones..

    Robertson: Women Usually to Blame for Troubled Marriages - YouTube

    Here he condones wife beating for upity women.. he has to stand up to her.

    Pat Robertson Tells Man to Beat his Wife, Move to Saudi Arabia - YouTube

    He continues, guess the underlying message is women are subservient and need to always meet the needs of the breadwinner, perhaps women should greet their women at the door wrapped in saran wrap.. men never have any responsibility in these situations.

    Isn't there a directive in Christian texts which could be argued implies that a woman is below a man???

    Seeing if I can find what I am referring to.

    EDIT: What I was referring to is called "The dictum of St.Paul":

    1 Timothy 2:12 - "I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man".

    I fully admit I am not religious expert nor an expert on the modern interpretation of scripture, but if "my book" said that woman can't have authority over a man there would at least be some acceptance/understanding etc of said "misogyny" (in so many words).

    EDIT2: D, I took your question to imply why is it tolerated/accepted by the RR. If you meant by society as a whole, I can only say that I personally don't accept much of their actions, but that I also marginalize them as a "noisy subgroup unworthy of my time".

    It's part of the born-again religion and only seen as misogyny by those outside it.

    Hey, if that's what the RR believes, there's nothing anyone can do about it but accept it...stupid as that it is.

    And I agree with your assessment of the RR...they are now tiny compared to where they were in the late 80's/early 90's politically.

    I say let them die a slow death...nothing we can do to speed it along.

    My guess is that this thread was started to get under the skin of RI Patsfan...silly as that may be.

    yup...and the Morman religion is far worse. Men can have several wives but women can only have one husband.

    I'm surprised more men haven't become Mormans!!!!!:eek:

    And let's not even discuss Muslim practices toward women!

    PR - I wasnt attempting to say "we should change them".

    People are free to think they want - I certainly am not attempting to change anyone's views on anything; whether here or in my real life.

    I would guess there was a dig in here too.

    Fair enough... I just wanted to make sure my point was clear as I know I can be unclear when all I have is type on a computer screen.

    Carry on

    You are aware that Mormons have not been able to have more than one wife since 1904 when the church disavowed the practice and adopted a policy of excommunicating any and all members found practicing polygamy, aren't you?

    One wife is enough, more than one would be very confusing and probably very difficult..

    Religious right = one man? Good to know.

    It is disappointing seeing you guys continue with the "war on women" twaddle even after the election.

    Meanwhile, here on earth:

    While you guys are wasting your time chasing irrelevant bogeymen, population control aficionados are ushering in an era of unimaginable misery for women worldwide.

    They are complete idiots. I can not believe that people listen to and support the hateful crap that they spew forth year after year. but, then I also can not believe people listen to the likes of Al Sharpton, Jessie Jackson and so forth either.

    Was discussing an american issue, all women should be treated well, not matter where they are from..

    Mitt Romney actively sought the endorsement of Pat Robertson, he is a big player in the right wing world..

    How far is the right wing world from Earth? I believe I read it's about the same size as the left wing world and has about the same population...but just different opinions last time I looked.

    Guess we will disagree, but after the last election and all of the brouhaha that ensued that one might think that there would be distance from the extremists.. Robertson and Ted Nugent come to mind.. the latter is a draft dodging pants shytter who at a later time took guardianship of a minor young woman, according to Courtney Love she gave him oral sex when she was 12.. but in the last election both of these guys endorsements were sought.
