Teksten er på engelsk, fordi den er tatt fra King James Bibel, den engelske oversettelsen, som vel anses for å være den mest korrekte oversettelsen, men de samme stedene er å finne i den norske varianten.
Det er kun NT-steder som er omtalt, for ellers vet vi jo hva de overtroiske prøver seg med som motargument...
Ha en fiiiiiin kvinnedag!
Christ is the head of every man, and a husband the head of his wife, and the head of Christ is God.
For a man is the image and glory of God; but woman is the glory of man. For man did not come from woman, but woman from man; neither was man created for woman but woman for man. For this reason, and because of the angels, the woman ought to have a sign of authority on her head.
Women should remain silent in the churches. They are not allowed to speak, but must be in submission, as the Law says, If they want to inquire about something, they should ask their own husbands at home; for it is disgraceful for a woman to speak in the church.
Wives, submit to your husbands as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife...wives should submit to their husbands in everything.
A woman should learn in quietness and full submission. I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man; she must be silent
For Adam was formed first, then Eve; and Adam was not deceived, but the woman was deceived and became a transgressor. Yet she will be saved through childbearing, provided [she] continue in faith and love and holiness, with modesty.
Likewise, tell the older women to be reverent in behavior, not to be slanderers or slaves to drink; they are to teach what is good, so that they may encourage the young women to love their husbands, to love their children, to be self-controlled, chaste, good managers of the household, kind, being submissive to their husbands, so that the word of God may not be discredited.
Train the younger women to be subject to their husbands." There is no indication of equal power sharing in marriage.
Wives do not adorn yourselves outwardly by braiding your hair, and by wearing gold ornaments or fine clothing; rather, let your adornment be the inner self with the lasting beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit. It was in this way long ago that the holy women who hoped in God used to adorn themselves by accepting the authority of their husbands. Thus Sarah obeyed Abraham and called him lord.

I tillegg vil vi gjerne friste med en morsom sak vi fant:
Om du skulle ønske å bevise for deg selv at Gud er ren innbilning, har du her en enkel måte å gjøre det på: Se etter steder i Bibelen der Gud er en absurd og komplett tulling i stedet for å være den ”allvitende, ”alt-elskende” og ”fullt opplyste” skapningen det er meninga at Gud skal være. Denne totale selvmotsigelsen beviser at Gud er ren innbilning.
Denne tendensen er synlig i flere deler av Bibelen, eksempelvis her og her. Er du imidlertid en kvinne, er Guds absurditet aldri klarere enn når du ser nærmere på hvor mannssjåvinist Gud er.
Fortsettelsen finner du her.
Og, ja, vi vet vi bruker et bilde av en sannsynligvis muslimsk kvinne. Kvinnesynet i Koranen er enda mindre å slenge tenna i tapeten for.
