Disdain and Oppression of Women – Part 5

The Fathers of the Roman Church blamed the first woman “Eve” for the so-called fall of man, since in paradise she picked and gave “Adam” an illegal “fruit” to eat. Due to this saga from the Church Bible, they now teach that every woman must atone for this guilt by submitting to man and keeping silent in society and Church. In later centuries, churchmen accused mainly women to have an alliance with the “devil” whereupon they were cruelly tortured and burned. Up to our time, there are no equal rights in the Vatican church. By teaching decision of the priests, it is a man-dominated institution. All this has nothing to do with Jesus, the Christ. In His following were both men and women, and in Original Christianity women were active as apostles and as prophets.
