Quote# 85695

Take a look at what’s going on around us, basically what happens I believe is that if you strip away the biblical blueprint, then males fall into one of two categories: they either become thugs and treat women with brutal callousness, or they become hideous hermaphrodites lacking the charm of women and the masculinity of men. Welcome to the new secular liberal male in America. Those are the two kinds you get, thugs or wimps, because the gifts of masculinity with all its traditions of honor and respect, commitment and responsibility, and yes treatment of women, spring directly from the pages of the Bible.

If you believe that, you've obviously never read the Bible...

Which is far, far worse than the world with the biblical blueprint, where males are thugs and treat women with brutal callousness.

Bible? What Bible would that be, Rabbi? If you mean Tanakh, that's only half a Bible.

And you haven't even got half an argument.

Is that supposed to be a joke??

The Bible is a sad collection of tales and taboos from tribes of cattle raiders, who were significantly less civilized than anybody around them and somehow made a virtue out of being pushed around by all their neighbours, until they finally found somebody to pick on and steal land from. If you want to find biblical treatment of women, you're far more likely to find it in tribal Pakistan than anywhere civilization shines. This has nothing to do with religion: your book merely sanctifices barbarous, uncivilized practices found among all peoples before they reach a decent level of social development.

I find it all the more revolting that in your rant you seem to care only for the male side of behaviour, as if women were an object that passively accepts either protection, nurture or abuse. Fuck off quickly.

Double post. Fuck you again.

Is Obama a thug who treats women with brutal callousness, or is he a hideous hermaphodite?

Let me tell you a story about a man named Job...

What biblical blueprint? The one where God told the Jews to kill everyone, except they could keep the virgin women for themselves? The one that says if a man buys another man's daughter then wants to return her in "used" condition, he has to pay her father a "restocking fee"? The one where King David got the wife of one of his generals pregnant, then tried to order him back home so the general could have sex with his wife and think the kid was his, and then when he refused to come back, had him sent into battle to be killed?

And how come the divorce rate for atheists in the US is half that of fundamentalist Christians who pour over the Bible daily?

You're an idiot. How do you explain the fact that most chauvinists are highly religious?

Danarth

Well. I am not religious and I am neither a hermaphrodite (You might want to look up what that word means in future, Rabbi) nor are I either brutal nor callous towards women.

So what does this say to your opinion, Rabbi?

I'm a black belt who doesn't go around picking fights (in fact I avoid them, for the other person's safety) and I had enough charm to get the woman I love (which is good enough for me). Oh, and I'm an atheist. Rabbi's mind=>blown.

Doubting Thomas

Eeeeh, you're an idiot.

Besides, you just have to look at fundamentalists of the three major religions (Christianity, Islam, Judaism) to see that they treat women with brutal callousness, if not treating them as property.

"Those are the two kinds you get,..."

What is it with religious fanatics and false dichotomies?

I don't know what Bible this guy's reading, must be a new and de-misogynised edition.

So he's implying that being a "wimp" is as bad as wife beating?

So the whole "Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live" and "Women must remain submissive to their husbands" came from secularism?

Heh heh. You're funny.

The "Rabbi" needs to reread his "Bible."

"...I believe is that if you strip away the biblical blueprint, then males fall into one of two categories: they either become thugs and treat women with brutal callousness, or they become hideous hermaphrodites lacking the charm of women and the masculinity of men."

Thanks. As a non-biblically blueprinted male, I am neither a misogynist thug nor a hermaphrodite. I do appreciate you idiotically sweeping and insulting generalization, however. A**hole.

"Welcome to the new secular liberal male in America."

Thank you. Welcome to you backward, social misfits too.

"...treatment of women, spring directly from the pages of the Bible."

That the Bible commands one to be a misogynistic a**hole is unimportant in our modern society. Come on, Danny, join us in the 21st century.

...or they become like George Clooney:



Educated. Prosperous. Civilised. Generous. Secure in themselves; their self-image, and how others perceive them - either by women or gay men.

Not for nothing was he voted Sexiest Man Alive. Twice.

He's an Atheist.

PROTIP: British author, broadcaster and humourist Rabbi Lionel Blue is gay. Now hop off, bunny-boy Danny.

...oh, and like homosexuals, aren't rabbits an abomination, Rabbi Lapin, you hraka!?

The first category you mention is very common among Bible-thumpers. The second is a distortion.

In your head, maybe. In the real world, we have the likes of Pat Tillman, Lance Armstrong, Jason Miller, and Robert Smith.

...the gifts of masculinity with all its traditions of honor and respect, commitment and responsibility, and yes treatment of women, spring directly from the pages of the Bible.

Which pages, exactly?
