There'd better be a resurrection of the body

Because I've been just itching to punch Paul RIGHT in the snocker. "...men shouldn't have their heads covered because THEY reflect the glory of God." Yeah, well, I guess as far as it goes. But apparently women are just pieces of crap to him, because we were made as freaking little "helpmates" supposed to by default walk two paces behind men automatically. Paul's a prime candidate for bobbetectomy territory. Paul, just put a sock in it. Yes. He would have hated me as a parishioner.

Been wanting to say that for a while. And what's all this "God is head of Christ" business. DUDE. Christ IS God. Duh. Take that cultural crap, Paul, and stick it where the moon don't shine. And I bet those guys who you suckered into getting circumcisions weren't happy with you, either. No wonder you were probably the original wandering Jew. Betcha got ridden out of town on more than one rail. TENTMAKER. I hope you DID have an older sister who regularly beat the snot out of you. You deserved every little bit of it. Is the year of Paul OVER yet?

[Yes, I'm having a crappy day, and I may as well take it out on Paul as anyone.]

You have a forthright manner of speech, but do go easy on the surgery!

:-D Wilco. No worries. I'm just mad at Paul. Well, okay, at Paul AND the Obaminator. You're probably safe sleeping on your back! ;-D

Do you accept that men and women are different in ability but equal in dignity? (donning flame proof pants and running fast....)

Tara said...

Karen, let me say this gently, have you been taking your horomones lately? LOL!

Angela M. said...

Oh - and I better put my veil on LOL!

Oh dear!

Angela, men are usually better at upper body strength and killing black bugs in kitchen cabinets. But that's the thing..."too many stereotypes and pidgeonholes" WHICH man WHICH woman at WHICH task? They also tend to find direction by vector and are better (overall) at spatial relationships.

One woman of my generation (and her best friend) were REALLY p.o.'d at their HS math teacher who just insisted that "women can't do math" he p.o.'d them so much they both evetually got Master's Degrees in the subject. I don't know if it was reverse psychology or whatever. I just don't like Paul's f'ing automatic assumptions that "he" is always smarter, better, faster, more "Godlike" and women is just some shlub to iron his freakin' tunic. Iron your own damn tunic, Paulie. [MIND you, if I *loved* someone I'd probably iron a tunic or two and keep his dinner warm, but because I LOVED him, and not because I "had to." ] My favorite story is the Martha/Mary one where Jesus is spending time TEACHING them, and Mary's getting it, but Martha is running around like a chicken with her head cut off. Jesus treated women like they had brains. The Pauline crew can pound sand, as far as I'm concerned.

[BTW, REAL male/female differences in the hardware ARE fascinating to me. But not this sociological BS head games Paulie used to keep the women under his thumb.]

I'm not walkin' two paces behind anybody "just because Paul said so." Who died and made him King Dick? He can't even get his conversion story straight! Johnny-come-lately cloak holder as far as I'm concerned. He probably got shoved into a lot of lockers at schul. I bet the other guys snapped their towels at his rump.

Angela M. said...

Where does Paul say we have to walk 2 paces behind? And if he doesn't say it then how is that hinted at?

My friend (single)likes the idea of keeping a home for a man - her prince, her warrior. Me, I'm lucky the hubby has lower standards than me and therefore I can get away with dusting 4 times a year whether the house needs it or not LOL!

I think mentally men and woman should learn whatever turns their crank.

One thing that used to bother me is that Paul says women should be silent in the churches. I see it a different way now. When religion is seen as a "woman" thing men start dropping off. Denoms with female ministers are NOT growing.

Pauline Year not going so well for you, Karen?

Ben Trovato said...

You can't diss St Paul without dissing:

a) the Holy Ghost: He's the one who included that stuff in the Bible...

b) Our Lord, who took the trouble to knock him off his horse and choose him as the apostle of the Gentiles!

c) the One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church, who canonised him and holds him up as an example to us all.

So put your mantilla back on and say after me:

Sancte Paule, ora pro nobis.

gemoftheocean said...

Ben, mantillas fo me are something for "after hell freezes over!"

Q.E.D.

The Digital Hairshirt said...

"Who died and made him King Dick?"

Heh, heh, heh . . . .

Tara, I'm not sure there is a polite way of saying that "gently."

Karen, I will email you something to make you happier.

Ben: bit longer answer: Paul has an annoying habit of mixing his opinions with doctrinal points. It's like the village idiot mumbling about black helicopters from space out to get him, and then muttering "oh, BTW, E=MC2. If you're going to take Paul that literally, then you're going to have to buy into him not seeming to give a damn that he's condemening poor Onesimus to a life a slavery.

Tara: Paul's Mr."Be submissive" and his logic sucks. [a FULL contrast to the Widsom reading at the TLM Mass this morning re: the viruous woman -- more on that later today. The autho of that thing "rocks the Casbah" essentially the GOOD woman has a lot going for her intrinsically, without "her man" "needing" to tell her every freakin' move -- the "virtuous cool man" is not intimidated by the "vituous cool wife" He's a strong man, so he need NOT fear the "Strong woman."
Paul was the goofy looking kid who never got over it. The loser kid sidling up to the girls "hey, baby, I'm the greatest, let me show you how the world rolls, and I can show you how to live because I know better then you cause I got dingleberries." "Take a hike, hoser."

Sisto: Yep. ;-D

Digi: Thanks!

More on "Widsom" at lunchtime. I think the H.S. told Fr. G. to pick the St. Anne's Mass for my personal benefit.

Oh, and Tara: Regards that women silent crap....don't forget they also PROPHESIED in church (along with the men....a practise I'm glad stopped, otherwise we'd be in church all day, the way some people prattle on. And no, I'm not at all in favor of women priests, any more than I am of women on a mixed submarine crew (too tight quarters!) or playing Hamlet. Paul's "hush" was partly due to women not used to being allowed to worship in assembly and them asking "what's going on? Blame Jews for not wising them up in the first place and keeping them "at home in their place barefoot and ignorant."

Christianity, overall gives women a much better shake than anything else, don't get me wrong. I STILL can't stand Paul AS A PERSON. Too smarmy.

Annie said...

Heh heh, that's brilliant! That the second class helpmate stuff brings me out in a rash whether it's St Paul or not! But I do think Paul had ishooooos, and for me it's best if I do not to dwell on them :D.

Patricius said...

Have you seen what St. Peter has to say about St Paul and some of his readers? (2Peter 3:15-16) I'm sure he didn't have you in mind

Joe of St. Thérèse said...

I take out my bad days on Zero's speeches. The funny thing about St. Paul is that he's like a loose cannon. Speaks about anything and everything. But that's why I like him, much like me. Not afraid to speak his mind.
