    I do not condone or endorse any community, religion or system that abuses or oppresses women or children. Everyone should be cherished, loved and cared for.

    Theophanes: The problem with social engineers of our day is they incorrectly assume the only differences between men and women are their respective sex organs. Truth is, the differences are vast and they encompass the spirit, mind and body.

    Freeing the slaves in the USA was a big deal. Before that happened slavery was abolished throughout the British Empire. A lot of the work done in the West doesn't require a lot of physical strength.

    Cre8iveOne: If a husband and wife truly become "one flesh" as the Bible states, then I cannot see the left hand fighting against the right. What we see today are spouses competing with each other instead of completing each other.

    I agree with you on many count, JamieD, but I also know (from a Biblical standpoint), that the Almighty gave man the authority to rule over his home and this includes his wife and children as well. The Federal government has now displaced most men.

    I agree with you adorablebaby. Every society that's allowed its women unrestrained freedoms and took the authority from their husbands, have always destroyed themselves from within. The Lord intended for a good man to govern his wife and family. :0)

    I believe the man should be the "lord of the manor" and should govern his family and wife with love, respect, justice and affection. "Too many cooks spoil the broth". :0)
