A lot of southern states keep trying to adopt the display of the Ten Commandments in public arenas, including state buildings and school classrooms. Of course, backlash follows, and rightfully so.
This goes against the First Amendment, but so should placing your hand on the good book of rape and murder before swearing an oath in court.
In any event, there are many more disturbing commandments in the bible. I plopped five of them into a fun video, but I have to point out the most screaming hypocrisy.
I was all gung-ho to talk about the display of the Ten Commandments in schools and in other public arenas. I planned on commenting on the rote recitation of the “Pledge of Allegiance” which includes “One Nation, Under God.” Instead, I stumbled upon some fascinating history.
The original pledge is not what we know: it didn’t include the United States or God.
“I pledge allegiance to my Flag and the Republic for which it stands, one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.” – Francis Bellamy, 1892
So there I was redditting when I came across a diddy in Ezekiel 20 that amused me. Somehow, I missed including a good biblical passage into my book, Sex in the Name of God.
Ezekiel 23 20 There she lusted after her lovers, whose genitals were like those of donkeys and whose emission was like that of horses.
There is a hint of jealousy regarding size, and God forbid women should get any big ideas.
This sounds like a true case of “penis envy,” a term coined by the famous Sigmund Freud wherein women don’t have penises; therefore they are envious of men.
Headline news tells us that radio station WDOK in Cleveland, Ohio is refusing to play the song, Baby It’s Cold Outside.
This duet involves a man trying to convince a lady friend to stay, either longer or for the evening, while the woman seems to be struggling with her conscience.
That’s my take, anyhow.
Naysayers are now claiming this classic to be akin to a rape song.
People are pointing to the phrases, “The answer is no” and “I really must go”. Yes, but she also seems to waffle with “I ought to say no,” and “Maybe just a half a drink more”.
Religious institutions, especially Catholicism, have not been kind to women. Nuns are very much on the decline because they weren’t taken care of as well as the men. Women also complain that the opportunity for rising up in the ranks is poor.
Having women in charge might fix a whole lotta messes.
Yet, it is beyond me why women would want to claw their way to the top of an organization that views them with less regard, is overly concerned with their vaginas, extols money, and molests children.
