So this is the time of year when once again the Catholic Church insists on reading the first century, patriarchal defined Bible verse where women are instructed to “obey” their husbands. They justify this legalized discrimination by saying that it is a beautiful expression of men and women mutually valuing and caring for each other. It is anything but that.
There are always Biblical prescription for slaves to obey their masters and some how in the 21st century we have been able to acknowledge that that is inappropriate in modern society. Women however, must continue to be under the authority of their husbands because that is “god’s” will.
No, it is man’s will and it is a power play.
Women have to stand up against discrimination just as any oppressed group has in the past millennia. We don’t need to accept oppression in the name of god, not Christians, not Orthodox Jews, not Muslims, Hindus or Buddhists. It is misogyny plain and simple.
Unee represents women’s power spirituality. Women can step up and acknowledge their true intuitive, spirituality connected selves absent of male direction or domination. This is what true spirituality looks like, being able to find and walk your own spiritual path.
