Jehovah is a Sexist – Part 4

In previous posts on this topic here at the Secular Outpost I have not attempted to build a case for the claim made in the title.  Instead, I have discussed the meaning and implications (i.e. Jesus is a false prophet and Christianity is a false religion) of the claim.  However, on my own blog I have written a few moderately long posts in defense of the claim that ‘Jehovah is a sexist’:


My plan was to work my way through the Pentateuch, the first five books of the Old Testament, traditionally attributed to Moses, discussing each significant passage that promotes a sexist belief or practice.  But in the above three posts I only made it to the second chapter of Genesis, so following my original plan would take me months and many, many posts.  

Instead of carefully working through the Pentateuch,  I will finish up my more detailed discussion of the opening chapters of Genesis, and then shift to a more compressed mode, where various key passages will be quoted, and I will make only brief comments on the sexist implications of each passage.
