..because it's a "male" vegetable ....!!
No joke -bitter truth ,and showing more and more the absurdity of Al Qaeda's pseudo-islamic infuence (actually nothing in the Coran dictates the difference in sexist vegetable purchases...)
But the first victims have occured - and one can wonder where all this madness stops..

No surprises here, just another example of how religion (all religion) is used to oppress women.

Men would have fingers cut off for smoking, hair salons and shops selling cosmetics were bombed, ice vendors were killed because ice was not available during the time of Islam's Prophet Mohammad -- all common tales of al Qaeda justice.

Presumably because bananas weren't available to the Prophet Mohammad (because they're native to Southeast Asia and Australia), anybody found buying, selling, peeling or eating a banana should be killed.

"ice vendors were killed because ice was not available during the time of Islam's Prophet Mohammad -- all common tales of al Qaeda justice."

Can't remember hearing about guns and missiles at the time of Mohammed either... or is a weapon a weapon?

Very few, if any, religions treat women equally. Can a woman freely become a rabbi, an imam, a priest? Catholicism's anti-contaceptive doctrine effectively oppresses a woman's right to chose whether or not they become pregnant.

Most organised religion = men setting their agenda for women.

I heard they are going to ban measuring tapes and rulers next, and adopt the metric system because 180 mm sounds so much bigger than 7".

Maybe once a woman has a cucumber then why do they now need Al Qaeda. Maybe Al Qaeda is unable to measure up to what a cucumber brings to the proverbial table.

In Reform, Conservative, Reconstructionist, and Progressive Judaism, yes.

In certain circumstances, yes.

While it certaintly does oppress women, the pro-life movement is rooted in the notion (which I feel is misguided) that they are preserving life. They aren't out necesarily to oppress women, but rather to preserve life. Keep in mind that women have played an integral role in the pro-life movement.

As opposed to the governments of most modern nations up until recent times?

Too late for that, they already did (along with most of the world) - Al Qaeda might be a bunch of religious thugs willing to drag us back to the stone ages but at least in that respect they are in the 21st century (which is more than can be said of... shall we say... some countries Big grin  duck  )

He didn't say that the religions themselves oppress women - but that they're sometimes used as an excuse to do so.  Smile

Fair enough. That, however, makes no difference for the examples I cited. The moderate forms of the religions I cited are not used to oppress women.

I'm sure that there're some freaks out there that have come up with a way to misinterpret the writings of these religions and oppress the women around them. Not that I have any examples...

I'll give you one of those - Judaism. As for the rest, you may be right but these are surely the exception rather than the rule....i.e. breakaway cults from the main established cult.

Quoting Bok269 (Reply 18):

I can't see how using contraception is deemed to be not preserving life. As for abortion, that's a totally different matter, and even from my purely secular viewpoint, it seems wrong.

Quoting Bok269 (Reply 18):
Reconstructionist, and Progressive Judaism, yes.

How do we define religion? I'd call reconstructionist and progressive judaism a social club, rather than a religion. I almost wish I was a member.


25 Scbriml : Those circumstances are so narrow as to be practically non-existant. Can a female imam can lead men in prayer in a mosque? I think not. A female imam
26 Bok269 : I agree with you. However it seems likes the anti-contraceptive movement is rooted more in preventing non-procreation sex rather than oppressing wome
