Jesus says: Women Suck!

Ever notice how the most highly respected Christian women are subservient to their men?

There's this guy on the Daily Show* talking about an xtian cult he joined (to see what it's like), and how he didn't help in the kitchen, they actually had a group of women assigned to do that...that the men's job was to follow Jesus, and the women's job was to follow their men. It struck me that the further into traditional Christianity you get, the more you get into those roles.

He just said the New Testament is about power, by the way. I think I can agree with that.

Yeah, I love how being "really good" in most religious moral code means allowing yourself to be subjugated. I just WONDER who came up with that idea. You can't trust the code when the people who came up with the code have their own selfish reasons for wanting you to follow it, such as, they don't want to do housework, and would rather have a free servant they can guilt trip into it.
