    Default You GO Baptists

    North Carolina congressional candidate Mark Harris, a former Baptist pastor, believes women are second class citizens, because the Bible tells him so.

    Harris, who won North Carolina’s 9th Congressional District GOP primary in May, believes that women should serve their husbands, because

    Poor schmuck obviously did not read of Deborah in the Book of Judges. Typically illiterate and spiritually impoverished right wing phony christian Republican.

    I suspect he may get some stick over that. But I do hope he does not get elected.

    Women should get together and laugh at the fool.

    And yet he shaves his beard! These selective, quasi-religious toe rags really make me want to go all Leviticus .

    Not among those who believe they are the helpers, although they probably defer to their old man for voting and other issues, anyway.

    They should be stoned.

    Man is a gullible creature, most seem to need someone to tell them what is and make false promises. It's true for the big organisations and the small.

    Long history there. Southern Baptist, of course, the denomination that split off from the American Baptists over slavery (the Southern Baptists supported it.) Remember that women only got the vote in 1920. Equality is still a pretty recent concept as things go, and some folks haven't caught on yet.

    Remember Who put the fundament in fundamental. Staying close to the womb.

    And while we're on the subject of the ol' wazoo, what is the derivation of the expression that means when some venture fails, it 'goes south?'

    And, also, when invertebrates succumb, do they do it belly up?

    Although 'fundamentalism' is a pretty recent phenomenon too, only about 100 years old (origin story here).

    Sometimes I think maybe we should have let the south go in 1860. We'd probably have to send them foreign aid now. If ever one needed and example of history's long shadow . . . .

    What's the beef?

    The US DID 'let the South go' on its merry path in 1877.

    Kwicherbichin'.






    Also, Lincoln was entirely correct in his desire to preserve the Union.

    If he had 'let the South go', the West would have gone soon enough.

    Maybe even fractured into parts.

    Equality: In a resolution released in 1998, Southern Baptists view all people as equal in God's eyes, but believe the husband or man has authority in the household and responsibility to protect his family. While both men and women are gifted to serve in the church, the office of pastor is limited to men.

    As per the Wiki link, a religious, social, political term in the modern U.S., but it refers back to the original practice of fundamentalism a bit further back

    Law as something other than the king's whim is a good idea, 4000 years ago no doubt a revolutionary advance.

    In the 21st century, law as something eternal and unchanging handed down for all time 4000 years ago by the Southern Baptists' version of God (including the inferior status of women) is a fetter fastened around the legs of half the population by previous generations. In the vernacular, f*ck that sh*t.

    That a definition is useful for some purposes does not mean it's "the" definition. Fundamentalism in its broadest sense is as old as religion.

    Consider the current US definitions of "liberal" and "conservative".

    Yeah.

    'Liberal' means 'wants universal health care', while 'conservative' means wants only white, male, "Christians" to have any voice.

    Radical is a better classification than Conservative I reckon.

    They do love to turn to the Old Testament. That's what I find so surprising.
