I would have asked what dad would have told his son about social intimacy for his son if the note had been to a girl in the class? I believe the same advice would apply.

@16 I prefer polyamorist not bigamist :D

You do NOT live under "capitalism", you live under CONSUMERISM. This is a vastly different and destructive animal.
Aug 11, 2013 hermes60 commented on Slog Bible Study: 1 Timothy 5:11-15.
1 Timothy is part of the pseudo-pauline letters (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Authorship_…). Letters attributed to Paul but apparently written by other people. This group of letters appear to be written to put forward someone else's ideas taht do NOT coincide with Paul's teachings. From what I can see, most of the sexual inequality BS comes from these letters, as Paul recognized women as apostles, and, therefore, teachers of men.

This moron's rant is a complete non-sequitor. There is a massive difference between "god" and "religion". "god" was NOT kicked out of public places - RELIGION was kicked out.

I learned that some of the indians here in Canada do NOT consider menses unclean. Women are considered having great power/energy during that time.

Not all religions are practiced as "being the one true religion" or that their texts
are totally literal and factual." Many Pagans see what they call deity(ies) as a means of relating to a Higher Source - even if that source is humanity. Their texts are stories for teaching, conveying ideas.

When the context of the source of a text is forgotten, that text becomes irrelevant to current times. A religion that does not change/grow with the people and times is not a living thing.

If you read The Politics of Jesus by Obery Hendricks, you will learn a different way (and I think more accurate) of what Jesus' teachings actually say.
