Now the bible says that the son of god is born to a virgin. Never mind that it is a biological impossibility unless Mary was a mole rat. Mole rats can actually be born pregnant. Was Mary a mole rat? I don't think so.
Most likely she was a poor jewish 14-year old that caught the eye of an adulterer and sexual predator, Joseph.
The thing is that the new testament is filled with the denigration of women. The consensus view of women in the new testament is that all women that are not virgins are in fact whores and or prostitutes. Paul says that women are made for man and only for that reason. Almost every female character in the new testament is a whore.
It is blatantly obvious that the "original sin" is really only visited upon women. That males are innocent victims and actually bear no responsibility at all.
Now the only respect to women or I should say to a woman in the bible is afforded to Mary. Not because she is the mother of jesus, but because she is a virgin (she doesn't, and has never known sex....EVEN THOUGH THE GREAT CHILD MOLESTOR FUCKED HER).
So Mary is treated differently than any and all other female characters in the bible. This is only a small respect as Mary doesn't give us any great gospel to read. She is to be looked upon and revered not listened to.
Therefore no REAL christian respects his mother or his wife or any woman that has had sex. They can't, the bible teaches them to hate women to disrespect them to ignore them to treat them like livestock and property.
This is why christians are so against women's health, women's independence, women's freedom and women's rights.
Why there are christian women is beyond me. I can't understand why they would hold with any organization that is so demonstratively against them simply because of their individual biology.
Don't get me started on homosexuality and christianity. That is a whole different ball of wax.
