WOMEN ARE TREATED LIKE INFERIOR BEINGS THROUGHOUT THE BIBLE.
I do not permit a woman to teach or to assume authority over a man; she must be quiet.
-1 Timothy 2:12
Like children, women are instilled with fear throughout the Bible. Men are clearly designated as the superior sex, and God is referred to in the masculine form (making it less surprising why many men are Christians). Women aren’t so lucky, and the Bible is filled with countless insulting and appalling views of them. Passages demand that wives follow orders from their husbands, just as they are to follow orders from God. The Catholic Church’s stance on barring female priests today is not surprising when you examine the way women are treated as second-class citizens throughout the Bible.
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.
