Feminism and Christianity

It doesn’t work.

You cannot call yourself a Christian and a Feminist at the same time, not in today’s society. Once upon a time feminism may have been about the right for women to vote or to work but not anymore.

So why doesn’t feminism mesh with Christianity? Let’s see what some of the leading figures of modern feminism have to say…

” It is important for us to encourage women to leave their husbands and not to live individually with men… All of history must be re-written in terms of oppression of women. We must go back to ancient female religions like witchcraft” – The Declaration of Feminism , November 1971.

……. Witchcraft….. How lovely.

“God is going to change. We women… will change the world so much that He won’t fit any-more.” – Naomi Goldenberg, Changing of the Gods: Feminism and the End of Traditional Religions (Quoted at beginning of From Father God to Mother Earth)

I didn’t realize God changed. Did you? Oh, what was that? Riiiight, it says in the Bible that God is un-changing. Awesome. God: 1 Feminists: 0

“By the year 2000 we will, I hope, raise our children to believe in human potential, not God” – Gloria Steinem, editor of ‘MS’ magazine.

What do you think is more trustworthy? A never-changing, all-powerful God who cares about you and loves you? Or the “potential” of your crazy neighbor down the street who owns five dozen cats? Or maybe you want to believe in the “potential” of all those amazing politicians….

“No women should be authorized to stay at home and raise her children. Women should not have that choice, because if there is such a choice, too many women will make that one” (Feminist pioneer Simone de Beauvoir, Saturday Review, June 14, 1975).

Okay, this one gets me, because ten years from now I want to be at home, taking care of my first baby, not having to worry about work and who’s taking care of my little girl or boy. Do not take away my rights to take care of my future children at home.

“We can’t destroy the inequities between men and women until we destroy marriage. ” — [Robin Morgan, “Sisterhood Is Powerful,” (ed), 1970, p. 537]

Destroy marriage…… Destroy marriage…. that sounds pleasant. Doesn’t that sound pleasant all you women who are married or want to get married? This woman was insane….

“The most merciful thing a large family can do to one of its infant members is to kill it” -Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood, in Women and the New Rage, p.67

Whoa. Whoa. That’s murder no matter how you spin it.

“Marriage has existed for the benefit of men; and has been a legally sanctioned method of control over women… We must work to destroy it. The end of the institution of marriage is a necessary condition for the liberation of women. Therefore it is important for us to encourage women to leave their husbands and not to live individually with men.” – The Declaration of Feminism , November 1971

Ladies, do you feel that marriage only benefits men? Because I’m not so sure. I mean, I’m not married, but I cannot wait until I get to marry the love of my life and live with him. And he’s going to take care of me in a way that I could not take care of myself. I’ll be happy and cherished and loved and I can’t think of a better lifeĀ I will benefit greatly from marrying him.

I’m going to stop with the quotes there and say that no matter what, feminism is NOT the answer. God is. Whatever evil there is in these areas cannot be fought with feminism. When I see feminism I see the devil working against God, against women, against children, and against the sanctity of marriage. It breaks my heat to know that so many women buy into this.

So please, do not tell me that you are a feminist and a Christian. It doesn’t make sense.
