"Women shall not lead prayer at city council meetings"

Recommended Posts

Im gonna just jump right off and ask why in the fuck is a governmental organization holding prayer to begin with?

People gonna people. Stupid gonna stupid. Digress.

Eric Hogue, city councilman of Wylie, Texas, has decried that women shall not lead the opening prayer of their meetings. He has cited the new testament of the bible as his reasoning for this.

 

This speaks volumes about a lot of things. He may want his wife and daughters to never be able to speak or think for themselves, but ill be damned if I let that be the kind of life my daughter experiences.

After we resolve this touchy gender issue, can we finally address getting some Muslim prayers up in the hizzy?

If we do one, we need to do them all, right? Fair is fair after all.

 

Personally I can't wait until we get to the concept of polytheism and have to include payers to every god that's ever been thought of.

Got to love it when a guy takes a verse about something happening "in church" and applies to to "in this town hall room." Hogue is wrong here. Obviously.

Yes, but invite the children's choir.


Video of children in Philadelphia Muslim Society: 'We will chop off their heads' for Allah

 

"Woe unto ye filthy corrupt councilmembers

We will chop off your pet's heads and bind your feet with their flea collars

The eyeballs of your infidel grandspawns will be fed to catfish trolling the bottom of Lake Lavon

You bribe taking falafel deniers will be servants of the Grand Caliphate of the West."

 

Would definitely liven things up.

The WFAA article cited a blog called "Befuddled By The Clowns" which is a Wylie gossip rag. Oh man what a great read if you're into local politics on steroids with an anti-liberal bias. Keep it classy Collin County

I agree with the councilman. The fairy tale I believe in also says woman are terrible at reading.

You can't just pick and choose. Make them all leave town during their periods. I'd support that one.

I have been waiting with baited breath for the opinion of Eric Hogue, city councilman of Wylie, Texas, to finally get here so we can have a serious discussion.  Thanks OP.

I don't give a shit about eric hogue or his backward ideas and bigotry. I don't really give a shit who speaks to anyone else's imaginary friend. 

 

I DO give a shit when the people that do so are in control of anything. There are so many layers involved in what is fucking wrong in everything going on with this entire enterprise.so fucking bandwidth isn't really at issue. But by all means, you do you bro.

It's a non-issue... except that it is one.

 

Maybe the guy was trying to establish how fundamentally wrong the bible is for claiming that women shouldn't speak.im not wiling to give that much credit though. Perhaps instead he should've started with the abomination of slavery and its sanction in the same bible that claims women shouldn't speak in church but seek guidance from their husband at home.

Scottsdale city council used to open with prayer from different church groups until the local satan worshippers sued for equal time.  No more opening prayers.

We have a dude at work who thinks it's so meaningful to say a (Christian) prayer of blessing before we have lunch at our monthly meetings( that is, until Covid.)   I asked him how much he would would rejoice when our Muslim guy wants us to all join in and do his prayers, or one of the  Jewish guys asks why we're praying in jesus' name...

It gets all quiet and shit.

 

I'm cool with a moment of silence.  Everyone call for blessings and give thanks to the god of their choice.  One of em has to be the right one, correct?

There are scriptures that can be interpreted to limit women’s participation in worship.   There are also scriptures that can be interpreted to allow women to participate fully in all aspects of worship.  The most often cited scriptures on both sides of this issue were written by the same biblical author.  Most scholars view the positive scriptures that allow complete participation as generally applicable instruction while the more restrictive scriptures were written to address a specific challenge faced by a specific group of people at a specific time.  
 

Point is... those who want to twist scripture for their own oppressive purposes can do so  That’s not a problem with the Bible.  It’s a problem with the person.

Haven’t read any more than the OP of this thread. This is fucking ridiculous and what gives Christians a bad name. I like diversity of prayer. Female pastors at my church touch on things us men wouldn’t, and I’m happy to have them lead in prayer. 

And OP, I totally agree with your last paragraph. I’m raising 2, and I constantly challenge them to lead prayer, amongst a litany of other challenges and leadership positions I want them in. I love women for a variety of reasons and they are equals in most, and in many categories better than us.

Why is this dude worried about women leading prayer when he needs to focus on important stuff like revoking their driving privileges?

I agree he’s a backwards moron. But some of the worlds largest religions don’t let women lead services. I was raised Catholic and they still adhere to this. The whole system of organized religion is a mess which is a big reason why I’m atheist.

My wife is a minister and theologian.  I regularly cite the book of Timothy to her:

Quote

11 A woman[a] should learn in quietness and full submission. 12 I do not permit a woman to teach or to assume authority over a man; she must be quiet.

She is never amused.  But I am.

Catholics don't let women into their leadership because they probably would instantly blow the whistle on the kiddy diddlers.

The fact that a prayer is being used to open a government function is much more troubling than the notion that a fundamentalist Christian is a misogynist.  There's no surprise there, is there?
