You knew it was out there. But when would the anti women angle several religions lay claim to be put into play? Now it is here. A group of conservative Jewish and Christian clergy has sounded the alarm that God’s wrath may come upon the nation that defies the rules.
I have thought for a long time it would be great to have some kind of measurement that would put a number on how far prominent religions get off kilter from their society before they right themselves. Parts of the Jewish, Christian and Muslim faiths are now far out of alignment with their respective societies. I don’t know when they will right themselves.
In these branches female clergy are prohibited. To them, it stands to reason if women cannot do the ordinary work of preaching and tending to the flock they could not possibly hold elected offices. In my opinion, it is OK to ridicule religions hold ridiculous beliefs.
A good argument can be made this no-woman-should-be-President represents only a part of all the religions where it is found. That all religious people are painted with this brush highlights the problem of identifying with any religion. They are grounded in ancient myth. If you buy some of those myths it is hard to claim others who buy into different myths are wrong.
One of the many good things about candidate Hillary is that anti women factions in our society cannot hide in the weeds.
