1 Timothy 2:12
But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.
“Somebody shut that cunt up or Imma gonna go over there and fuckstart her head.”
It must be nice to live in a world where only the loudest men have any say in everything. As money is now the sole measure of one’s permission to speak, the loudest ones are now merely the richest. And I find it interesting that the two loudest are both unmarried, and seem to be completely wedded to their daddy’s philosophy.
Paul, of course, was a paranoid . AS he himself said, “I am ordained a preacher, and an apostle”
In modern terms, here is a man who claims that I spoke with him and gave h9m power over all people.
Today you have drugs for this affliction.
Paul’s message to Timothy also has meaning for Seahawks fans.
In the world of football, women only serve to titillate. The San Jose Mercury News just reported that cheer leaders are not even paid minimal wage! Talk about male dominance!
Liberal fans of the Hawks need to be wary. Obamacare and the $15 dollar minimum wage could force the Hawks to move to another state.
Why? Well as we all know there can not be big guys throwing their ball around without sexy camp followers ladies to cheer them on.
Trouble is the camp followers cheer leaders are paid WAY below the minimum wage. Here in lefty Seattle, we keep the pay secret but data from more open teams suggest a real wage of three or four dollars and no tipping allowed.
That brings us to Obamacare, since the camp followers Seagals do not officially work full time, they have not been eligible for healthcare. BUT .. since WASTATE is an Obamacare state the pretty ladies ought to aly for Medicaid!
Of course, the camp followers could form a union since tittilation on the sports field is legal even though prostitution is not. Then the Seahawks would have to move to a a right to work state!
Mark Driscoll’s favorite verse.
You know, Paul is really the source of so many of your problems. If you hadn’t let him run around evangelizing, people today wouldn’t see his (maybe) letters as the word of God rather than the first interpreter of the Jesus fellow.
You should have smote him when you had the chance.
That’s right… Just say NO to Hillary 2016…
I’m an agnostic Christian and it’s crap like this passage, and the response to crap like that that turns me off to religion.
I’m like conservative kkkhristians in that I also pick and choose the verses of the bible I pay attention to, but I choose the verses that promote love and tolerance and equality. I try to be tolerant of everyone but the intolerant.
Then why identify yourself with the KKK Christians? And why not look at other religions for what they offer?
I understand people who want to take what is of Me in Christianity .. who can not admire the role of Christianity in creating the (non) Christian views of Jefferson. And, yes >>I<< did create all people equal.
On the other hand, given the immense evil done by Christianity, I would say that whoever claims to be both a Christian and a good person has to seek ways to redeem herself from the evils done by Christianity.
Pope Francis has this problem.
The question is, can he serve Me and his church? Could he take the sins of his Church onto himself by enabling women to become priests, by selling off the stolen goods that decorate churches, by offering reparations for the enslaved and massacred? By excommunicating evil does from America's Tea Party?
Let Me offer you a view of what a good pope might do … emulate Jimmy Carter. President Carter has recently wiped out a major human disease … Guinea Worm. Why was this done by someone with so much less resources than the Pope?
@6 Even a woman with a big mouth is better than anyone you guys have.
@7 “I choose the verses that promote love and tolerance and equality.”
Not me. I kick bigots, racists, and Republicans in their shins. I’d scratch their eyes out if I could reach that high. Gandhism is fine for you humans, but we rabbits know what works in nature.
This would be the perfect bible verse to add to your paper if you were the young man (plaintiff) in the lawsuit against the Sabine Parish School Board (https://www.aclu.org/religion-belief/lane-v-sabine-parish-school-board).
Mohandas was anything but a Christian. He taught that ahimsa was a weapon.
Rand Paul has decided to run for president in 2016 on a Monica Lewinsky platform. You know:
“What Bill Clinton did with Monica Lewinsky was bad, and Bill Clinton was a Democrat, therefore the Democratic Party is bad.”
@2 Paul was not only paranoid, but a zealot with a rather pithy sense of humor…and the sumbitch could write and presumably was equally well-spoken. The Jesse Duplantis of his day, if you will. That, and his having covered a lot of territory, is why a lot more people paid attention to him than did to Jesus himself. It could be reasonably argued that most of the people who identify themselves as “Christian” are actually Paulists.
Sadly, the drugs don’t seem to be working as well as they used to.
I rather doubt that Jesus’ message as a peripheral figure in the Jewish wars would have gotten any traction.
Paul hyped the guy, put him in a God suit and started the ball rolling. Of course Paul had real divine help .. Caesar cam along an damn near exterminated all the Jews, opening things up to Paulistas.
Please do remember that Titus, after all a divine being, though less of one than I am. Romans only chose divine folks to be Caesars.
Than came a really big deity, Constantine … he went one step further making the Roman Bishop the Pontifex Maximus. Poor Jesus never had a divine with those kinds of powers.
The word “Pont” literally translates to “Bridge” in Latin. The “Pontifex” was the keeper of the bridge, meaning the toll-taker who regulated traffic. “Pontifex Maximus” therefore literally translates to “the boss of the toll-takers.”
Christianity was literally started for the same reasons, using the exact same methods as Scientology. There is little difference between the two.
We’ve all had a Paul in our lives. The Jackass who dropped out after taking two years of lower division Philosophy in college and now will tell you all about how he’s THE authority on Hegelian rational order.
Paul set himself up as THE interpreter of Christ’s teachings (added in a few rants of his own) and passed them off as divine.
And you, God, let him get away with it. If Jesus was your true son, why didn’t you stick up for him in the early days as the Word was being corrupted?
The Latin suffix -fex means “maker” or “builder”. A pontifex, the term predates Christianity, was one who built a bridge or path between believers and the deity. No toll-taking involved.
