I agree wholeheartedly with the above sentiment! For me, ANY belief system that denigrates and seeks to subjugate the female gender is suspect. More importantly, if there IS a God, I would bet it's far more likely that it's a She not a he.A consistent proof that religion is man-made and anthropomorphic can also be found in the fact that it is usually "man" made, in the sense of masculine, as well. The holy book in the longest continuous use -- the Talmud -- commands the observant one to thank his maker every day that he was not born a woman...The Old Testament, as Christian condescendingly call it, has woman cloned from man for his use and comfort. The New Testament has Saint Paul expressing both fear and contempt for the female. Throughout all religious texts, there is a primitive fear that half the human race is simultaneously defiled and unclean, and yet is also a temptation to sin that is impossible to resist.
