Religious Patriarchy and Gender-based Violence

The Bible is unequivocal about the role of the father in the family, the role of the family in society, and the responsibility of children to families and society. It describes in every way the responsibility of a Christian in society, the role of a wife and mother, the meaning of the Ten Commandments, and the tyranny of anti-Christian courts.

God warned us 2 millennia ago not to take our cause before "infidels", not to practice "idolatry" (feminism), not to worship the goddess of sex, not to commit murder and adultery, that feminism is blasphemy, and generally how to create a society which fears and worships God. Our Christian Forefathers relied heavily on the ability of the Holy Bible to maintain social order while the Constitution focused on restricting the raw power of government. They took the pains to add the Bill of Rights to the Constitution through the First Amendment to guarantee "free exercise [of religion]", the most important part of which was family structure, the basic building block of every culture:
To the woman he said, "I will greatly increase your pains in childbearing; with pain you will give birth to children. Your desire will be for your husband, and he will rule over you.", Genesis 3:16
The husband is supreme over his wife, and God is supreme over Christ, 1 Corinthians 11:3
For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is head of the church, his body, of which he is the savior, Ephesians 5:23
Wives, submit yourself to your husbands, for that is what you should do as Christians. Husbands, love your wives, and do not be harsh with them, Colossians 3:18
Keep your women silent in assemblies, because they are never permitted to utter; indeed, they must obey according even to the law. Moreover, if they wish to understand, they must ask their husbands at home, because it is a disgrace for women to utter in an assembly, 1 Corinthians 14:35
A married woman ... is bound by the law to her husband as long as he lives..., Romans 7:2
Wives must submit themselves completely to their husbands just as the church submits itself to Christ, Ephesians 5:24
How hard it is to find a capable wife; she is worth far more than jewels, Proverbs 31:10
Let not the wife depart from her husband; but and if she depart, let her remain unmarried, or be reconciled to her husband; and let not the husband put away his wife, 1 Corinthian 7:10
... you wives should be obedient to your husbands, 1 Peter 3
You husbands, also, in living with your wives you must recognize that they are the weaker sex. So you must treat them with respect, because they will also receive, together with you, God's gift of life, 1 Peter 3:7
... in order to train the younger women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled and pure, and to be good housewives, who obey their husbands, so that no one will speak evil of the message from God, Titus 2:4
During instruction, a woman should be quiet and respectful. I give no permission for a woman to teach or have authority over a man, 1 Timothy 2:11
Nor was man created for woman's sake, but woman was created for man's sake, 1 Corinthians 11:9
My son, hear the instructions of thy father, and forget not the law of thine mother, Proverbs 1:8
As the law of Moses prescribes, they were given the same punishment as they had schemed to inflict [adultery] on their neighbor. They were put to death, Daniel 13:62
she shall be brought to the door of her father's house and there the men of her town shall stone her to death. She has done a disgraceful thing in Israel by being promiscuous while still in her father's house. You must purge the evil from among you. Deuteronomy 22:21
A bastard shall not enter into the congregation of the LORD; even to his tenth generation shall he not enter into the congregation of the LORD, Deuteronomy 23:2
... false teachers will appear amoung you... [to] bring in destructive untrue doctrines ... and they will bring upon themselves sudden destruction ... They want to look for nothing but the chance to commit adultery, 2 Peter 2:1
Even if you do not commit adultery, you have become a lawbreaker if you commit murder, James 2:11
If there is a man who lies with a male ..., they shall be put to death, Leviticus 20:13
Some of them go into people's houses and gain control over weak women who are burdened by the guilt of their sins and driven by all kinds of desires, women who are always trying to learn but who can never come to know the truth, 2 Timothy 3:8
In our law Moses commanded that [adulteresses] must be stoned to death, John 8:5
Does this mean that we do away with the law by this faith? No, not at all; instead we uphold the law, Romans 3:31
"So I will come near to you for judgment. I will be quick to testify against sorcerers, adulterers and perjurers, against those who defraud laborers of their wages, who oppress the widows and the fatherless, and deprive aliens of justice, but do not fear me," says the LORD Almighty, Malachi 3:5
He will turn the hearts of the fathers to their children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers...or else I will come and strike the land with a curse, Malachi 4:6
For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false testimony, slander. Matthew 15:19
You know the commandments: `Do not murder, do not commit adultery, do not steal, do not give false testimony, do not defraud, honor your father and mother.' Mark 10:19
And it is easier for heaven and earth to pass, than one tittle of the law to fail, Luke 16:17
He [Asa, King of Judah 911-870 BC] even deprived his grandmother Maacah of the dignity of a 'great lady' for having made an obscenity for Asherah; Asa cut down her obscenity and burnt it in the ravine of the Kidron, 1 Kings 15:13
... let fear of the Lord govern you [judges]; be careful what you do, for our Lord God will not tolerate malpractice, partiality, or the taking of bribes, 2 Chronicles 19

Neither the Holy Bible nor the Constitution preach nor even remotely suggest "gender equality" . On the contrary, our Founding Forefathers debated the idea of giving women the vote and rejected it. The Holy Bible goes to great lengths to explain why and how women should be revered, but not put in positions of authority nor responsibility over men. The Constitution accepted and secured the role of the father in the family by putting him in charge of a family in which no bureaucrat could intercede. The two centuries of unprecedented economic growth of the US economy which followed was the inevitable result.

Our divergence from this important basic principle in the last 3 decades has not been a profitable venture, and those who assert that they are Christians and that they support the right of the 85% of North Americans who are Christians to their "free exercise [of religion]" on the one hand, while on the other hand asserting that they support "Egalitarian Feminism" and are "fervent advocates for equal rights for men and equal responsibilities for women" are the hypocrites the Bible warns us of. They themselves are far more dangerous to our social stability than the feminists who feminized these men.
