Abrahamic religions are anti-woman…also grass is green

The Abrahamic religions, absent centuries of being dragged into modernity, are vehemently anti-woman.  It is not a positive reflection on these religions that not as many believers treat women as property nowadays (even though plenty still do), but rather a negative reflection on religion that this process has even been necessary.

Even with all our progress away from the sexist core of these faiths, we still see shit like this.

As John Corvino says, “Religions give people infallible backing for their fallible human prejudices.”

Some will say that we need to oppose these more malicious species of faith and let the more benign ones go.  But their dictates and presumed authority are produced entirely by the same reasoning by which the moderate arrives at their belief about god.  By telling one they are wrong, we are necessarily saying the same of the other – we must if we are being intellectually honest.
