It wasn't christians who died, it was gnostic, "pagans" and millions of WOMEN who refused to denounce their beliefs.
 Quoting: SecondPrecession


50 million Christians by credible sources.

The Vatican and their Catholic religion is GNOSTIC.

Catholic Inquisition
[link to www.archive.org]
with Ex-Catholic Priest Richard Bennett
60 min

The severity of torture and murder that took place under Papal authority during the 605 years of the Inquisition can now be revealed from the pages of history. From the beginning of the Papacy, until the present time, it is estimated by credible historians that more than 50,000,000, men and women have been slaughtered for the crime of heresy charged against them by Papal Rome. This Video contains actual photographs of some of the instruments of torture that were used.

From John Dowling's The History of Romanism Book 8 Ch. 1, p 542-543, "From the birth of Popery in 600, to the present time, it is estimated by careful and credible historians, that more than fifty million of the human family, have been slaughtered for the crime of heresy by popish persecutors, an average of more than forty thousand religious murders for every year of the existence of Popery." The main credible historians on the Inquisition, besides Dowling himself are Lea, Vancandard, Maycock, Coulton, Turberville and Scott's Church History. The torture chambers of the Inquisition lasted 605 years and were found throughout the nations controlled by Rome. They had their beginning under Pope Innocent III in 1203 until the Inquisition's final dissolution in Spain and Portugal in 1808.

The DVD documents as well twentieth century atrocities of the Vatican working with Roman Catholic dictators such as Benito Mussolini, Adolf Hitler; Francisco Franco in Spain, and Antonio Salazar in Portugal. The most brutal and bloodthirsty of all was Anton Pavelic in Croatia four-year reign of terror.

Re: Women and the Bible----Christianity only gives us whores and virgins to identify with.
OP- sorry to break it to you, but women will and have sold themselves out and continue to do so on a regular, daily, hourly basis just to preserve the egos of men..

If women dare make themselves visible in any kind of way (visible as in VISIBLE.. not as in nudity, etc), they will be immediately perceived as a threat as they have been throughout all of history..

You know this. I know this. That's all there is to know.

And men envy the womb. It's fucked up to even have to type the words, but it is the TRUTH. You always want what you don't have. It's the ultimate human dilemma, especially when "genders" have been pitted against one another for the sole purpose of enslaving both.

Women might be awfully oppressed and there is no doubting that whatsoever, but which is worse? Women who actually know their power and actually have the self-restraint to keep mum about it? Or men who have been told they are powerful and "better than" only so governments of the world can take advantage of this inflated ego by making them live up to it until their death? Which one is more disillusioned about the state of things?

I would say women are wonderfully blessed to have the perspective they do for men are blinded by half-truths they only wish they could really believe about themselves to be true.

And I probably don't need to mention anything about the Holy Grail to you.. I'm sure you are well aware.

im guessing your a muslim thats who usaualy criticises the bible thats becaise mohamad was a player and treated woman like rubbish or sorry slaves he had sex with any woman he wanted to thats including his sons wife and a nine year old girl rthats why he had so many wives and concubines. dont judge our religion judge your own. and by the way in the koran mohamad says that majority of hell is made up of woman why would a loving God send innocent woman to hell because woman are treated inferior to men in the koran.






This is what made me walk away from Christianity. There isn't much there for women, it becomes obvious that the bible was used in part to stamp out the feminine, or altogether obscure it.

This is what happened during the Crusades and the Inquisition---murder of those who were herbalists, naturalists and Gnostics.

What does a woman get from the bible aside from a male saviour archetype to which she could never identify--as a woman?

The other alternative is essentially, a whore or a virgin mother. These two are so at odds to one another. it seems like a set-up for failure.

If you're a mother and not a virgin--basically you're a whore or prostitute.

What does Christianity do for you girls? Please don't simply quote bible scripture, I'd like to hear your thoughts on the issue instead--I've read the bible many times over.

The best analogy the bible gives for the feminine is to refer to her as Wisdom in Proverbs.

Other than that, it doesn't leave much to go on for women.

Re: Women and the Bible----Christianity only gives us whores and virgins to identify with.
The real tragedy here is that the bible mentions these women for a reason.

They (not exactly all but some) are archetypal women of the divine feminine contained in all religions that pre-date christianity.

In this way, the bible is almost valid. The only thing that invalidates it, is that for 95% of Christians, this information is still esoteric--they cannot see nor do they understand it as an abstract.

Re: Women and the Bible----Christianity only gives us whores and virgins to identify with.
So, what matriarchal religion do you ascribe to?

I do not ascribe to any organized religion, but I do practice a system of initiation that is egalitarian.

You should read about Esther, she was neither. Same with Sarah and many others.
 Quoting: Lion of Judah


Miriam, Ruth, Esther, Sarah...



Miriam abandoned her baby along the banks of a river. (Let's all be like her).

Ruth sleeps with some dude and then hopes that he will "redeem" her through marriage. Nice. So empowering.

Esther was part of a Persian harem. HAREM.

Sarah was the half-sister of Abraham her husband. Incest.
 Quoting: SecondPrecession


Miriam was Moses sister, she looked after him as a babe when their mother sent him down the river to SAVE him from being SLAUGHTERED by pharoah.

The book of Esther is controversial and probably could have been left out of the canon.

Ruth and Sarah are part of the genealogy that produced Jesus Christ. That seed line HAD to be kept pure.

Oh, so incest is godly?
 Quoting: SecondPrecession


It starts off with so many examples of incest then turns around and slaps you saying it's evil. Just one of the many contradictions of the oh so "perfect" and "pure" text.
