I did quite a conservative Afrikaans wedding the other day and the Domenie went on and on about how the woman must submit to the husband, who is head of the home etc. etc. ad nausium. I was shocked.
I foresee that all this banging on submissiveness would be cut slack on in the near future.  They’ve slowly but surely moved from a merciless gawd who would cast you in hell, to an all loving and caring gawd who actually would forgive you just about anything, in the past 30 years.  When the “sisters kerke” realised their support is dying a slow death to their competitors who is preaching a loving gawd, they had to change their approach.


What also shocked me was the nodding congregation - nodding in agreement (not falling asleep)
Sure?  Grin

Interesting how quickly the credulous move away from the Biblical God when it suits them. If Christians read their Wholly Babbles they would find out who their Gawd really is and run screaming to a more decent religion like atheism (hehe  Grin).

The forced wearing of niqabs is oppressive to women and must go.  What is rather disappointing, is Sarkozy’s motivation, blatantly portraying his religious bias:
He has ordered a nationwide debate on Islam's place in secular France, briefing journalists he wants no halal food options in school canteens, no prayers outside and no minarets. He was defiant on Thursday, giving a speech lauding the "Christian heritage of France".
The “Christian heritage of France”, which Sarkozy is so proud of, encompasses horrific persecution, especially by the Roman Catholic Church, still revered by a significant proportion of France’s population.  So minarets are banned, but church steeples are fine.  The musical quality originating from the bells of Notre Dame is, in my subjective opinion, vastly superior to the prayer calls from the minarets, often blared with megaphones, but we are dealing with principles here and allowing the one and banning the other would require sound motivation.  One is left with the impression that Sarkozy is not motivated by women’s rights, but by canvassing votes from the Christian right.

Of course--he's a politician, not a statesman.
