    285 Indian girls shed 'unwanted' names - Yahoo! News

    Read the article above.

    You do not see girls named "unwanted" in the west (ESPECIALLY, THE US) and it is because these nations are influenced by Christianity.

    You Christian haters can yammer all you want, but the fact is you see this attitude toward women outside of the influence of Christianity.

    India, the ME, China (and yes even in the old Soviet Union). Women don't come second in these societies, they come DEAD LAST.

    Yet, "feminists" who claim to be for the plight of women turn a blind eye to these women's plight to only focus on supposed chauvanism in the US.

    Why? Because they are cowards for one. You can't get stoned by a bunch of 12th Century thugs if you pretend there isn't a problem.

    It's a lot less dangerous to pretend you are standing up for somen in comparative safety than to take on the real problems women face in this world.

    Second, liberals hate Christianity. Oh, they try have it both ways with faux churchs that ordain gay pastors and the like. But, I'm talking REAL Christianity from the Bible.

    Yes, I know there is going to be come idiot citing what Paul says about women keeping silence in the church, yadda yadda yadda.

    But if one examines how women were treated OUTSIDE the Christian Church (in pagan society) and how they were treated inside the Church, then you would see the real difference.

    The fact is women were drawn to Christianity because of how it elevated women.

    Is the West's record perfect on treatment of women? OF COURSE NOT! No one is arguing it is.

    But you have to go back hundreds of years to find examples (in the West) that compare to how women are treated TODAY in countries outside of the Christian influence of the West.

    That's why multiculturalism is a joke. Not all cultures are good. Not all cultures are equal, and they shouldn't be treated as such.

    How does the Catholic Church treat women? How many female priests do you have?

    Christianity has a long history of women being subservient to men and the Bible has very few passages saying women are the equal of men

    Save me your holier than thou nonsense

    Does Christianity sanction the beating of women like in Islam?

    Only if they are slaves

    . *** When a man strikes his male or female slave with a rod so hard that the slave dies under his hand, he shall be punished.* If, however, the slave survives for a day or two, he is not to be punished, since the slave is his own property.* (Exodus 21:20-21 NAB)

    It has nothing to do with religion. It has everything to do with men and power. I will just give you one example. The Philippines... a good christian nation for you.

    The BASE problem is that they are asian... and women are nothing.

    So your little rant about "christians" being "better" is bull shit.

    So, Christianity does not sanction the beating of women like in Islime, after all.

    Must be because Jesus was not a woman-hater and raper like Mahomet.

    OK, I'll bite.

    What should we be doing differently? Supporting Christiantity because non-Christian cultures are socially backward?

    Christianity does NOT mean that we are better - there are plenty of examples of what Christians follow in the Bible that makes many people unequal or "less worthy." Should we talk about homosexuals, for example? Religion might play a part in why cultures are different, but it not everything. To understand what makes a culture different, you have to look beyond the religion and actually study the culture and the people itself. Jumping to religion is an easy answer and a cop-out.

    Mohammad had 13 wives. There is no evidence that Jesus even liked women

    Before anyone watches this and gets angry, remember that it's just comedy. If you have difficulty remembering that, look at the woman's hair, and know that she came from New York, not the South.

    Also, I fall into two of the groups she makes fun of, so don't take it seriously. It just came to mind while reading this thread and how we sometimes argue about silly things
    Only messin' with the TPS.
