    That's your choice to believe, but don't treat it as fact.

    Ironic - considering that religious people don't extend the same consideration . . . religious people will argue it's truth - and will argue that the sexes are treated differently within religious guidelines because it says to do so in the Bible.

    So I'll say the same: it's your choice to believe that it happened - and the sexes are created unequal - but don't treat it as fact.

    We're talking football, anyway - which she was playing until some assholes decided to bitch about it. . .nevermind those god-given talents that he told people not to squander, hunh? If it violates the gender-roles expected to be cloven to by the church you just need to pretend God didn't make you that way.

    Just a statement of fact.
    As do public schools across the nation. Why not go after them first since they are the vast majority of the problem.

    They are unequal. That doesn't mean that they're unequitable. Only women have give birth, thus inequality is inherent.

    If she gets hurt then what? You're too rash to judge and say that this is about sexism.

    Who says I don't?

    She was ON the team and then they decided to bump her OFF the team. Don't tell me that's not unfair and not just downright mean.

    The reasoning that cannot be defended is positivism.

    But for other positions, the Church has no position. They can be sacristans, run charities, run convents, etc. There is no problem with that. And lest you think that women have no role in the theology of the Church, remember St. Therese who is a doctor of the Church.
    You can call it heretical, but I am unconvinced about the necessity of God having to transform himself into a man. I would assume if the situation required it, God would have chosen a female form. I would be even less convinced after the apostles being men, that here on out, that is all that can be said on the matter.

    The way words are being thrown out here you'll be called a sexist for saying boys have a penis and girls have a vagina.

    He could have, but he didn't.
