crankypants

i had two great blog pals- dan'l and spadoman...i could email them daily and have epic rants and they would know just what to say to bring me around to sane again...i don't have them anymore to rely on so i tend to get myself into a pickle on social media now and again...i don't know why i bother to venture an opinion there...it isn't the right forum for me...but i'm a glutton for punishment...

i continue to have trouble wrapping my mind around how women, in particular, can be an adherent to christianity in our culture....mostly because most of us women have the freedom to choose in this country...no matter how nice the person is or how many good works they accomplish, christianity has the stigma of being a patriarchal and controlling religion....no matter how many good works done or how strong the faith- women will always be second class citizens....going to church with like minded people only perpetuates the cycle....

'oh my church doesn't teach that or believe that' well, according to your christian bible- it should....according to the christian bible- women are lesser than men....lgbt should not be tolerated....non christians will burn in hell for all eternity and on and on....and if you aren't reading that and having it preached to you- your church is cherry picking just as surely as the churches who are.....

anyway, i am glad that there are so many 'good' christians out there....i am glad that they are doing 'good works' and that they have strong belief and faith in their religion....and i am glad that the women in these churches are happy to be second class citizens....

i, for one. am not....oh, and i don't eat babies either....
