More Notes From My "Stupid Christian" Files

Read this , if you can get to the end before you need to run to the bathroom and vomit.

Oh -- and if in addition to keeping the womenfolk ignorant, pregnant and in the kitchen you also have a hankerin' for a good ol' slave to do the scut work around your house or business, here here is a Christian "scholar" who thinks we're all really too PC and hung up about the institution of slavery.

Where do you find this stuff?!

Google is a wonderful thing.;-)

If you really want to kvell over idiot Christians, go to Sharper Iron and read the discussions. These people are, frankly, nucking futs. They make me want to rename myself something other than "Christian" -- Jesusian or Messianic Druid or Theistic Buddhist or anything else. And -- scariest of all -- they vote.

Ugh. We's womans nead to be dum gurls so's we kan gets uss sum mens to marry.

Sick. Unfortunately, it sounds much like one of my seminarian classmates who has said, "Women are the only ones who can suckle the child. That's their role."

What year are we in now?

oh dear. It made my skin crawl to read that stuff. Every time I think we're over this "women be submissive" stuff I get re-awakened to the basic stupidity.

Believe it or not, on Ship of Fools a poster just argued that things were "different" in the South, and we need to understand that slavery "wasn't personal, it was business"-- shades of Don Corleone.

Yeah, we could fill up a couple more seasons of Studio 60 with all our stupid Christian tricks.

yup -- these are pretty fierce, all right. No wonder onlookers think Christian = stupid...

If'n slavery's so great, why doesn't aforementioned author go sell himself?

You want to be really depressed, the fact that there's a need for this agency depresses the hell out of me.

This is really sick. I have no idea why some people are so fixated on 1950's sitcoms that they think all women should live like them for all time? I say that because that is *really* the only place I have ever heard of a single-income, mother-at-home family happening in any amount. Meanwhile, those of us who live in reality are out earning money because we have no other choice-as much as we might like to stay home and keep house (and I would honestly rather drink anti-freeze), survival dictates that we go out and bring home some money. And sometimes even *two* incomes aren't enough.

It must be nice to live in such an insulated world where you have enough energy to worry about what roles other people are living at home. I have a hard enough time taking care of myself and my husband.
