VAGINA - THE GATEWAY TO HELL !

THE VAGINA IS THE GATEWAY TO HELL!

WOMEN AND THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH




The Roman Catholic Church's negative and derogatory attitude to women goes right back to the beginning of the Church's history.

Below is a short list of what some of the most famous Church Fathers and influential figures of the Church said about women:

TERTULIAN: 

"Woman is the gate to hell and her gaping genitals the yawning mouth of hell"

"Woman, you are the devil's doorway. You are the gate of Hell. You are the temptress of the forbidden tree. You are the first deserter of the divine law.

ST CLEMENT OF ALEXANDRIA:

 "Every woman should be overwhelmed with shame at the thought that she is a woman".

ST JOHN CHRYSOSTOM:

"Among all the savage beasts none is found so harmful as woman".

ST AUGUSTINE:

"Any woman who acts in such a way that she cannot give birth to as many children as she is capable of, makes herself guilty of that many murders".

THE COUNCIL OF MACON 584 AD:

In the years in Lyons, France 63 bishops held a debate on the topic: "ARE WOMEN HUMAN"? The result was: 32 YES - 31 NO.

SAINT THOMAS AQUINAS 13TH CENTURY:




"Woman is defective and misbegotten, for the active force in the male seed tends to the production of a perfect likeness in the masculine sex; while the production of woman comes from a defect in the active  force or from some material indisposition, or even from some external influence".

ST JEROME:

"Woman is a tool of Satan and a pathway to Hell".

POPE BOETHIUS:

"Woman is a temple built on a sewer".

ODO OF CLUNY:

"To embrace a woman is to embrace a sack of manure".

ST ANTHONY:

"When you look upon a woman consider that you do not face a human being but the Devil himself, the voice of a woman is the hiss of a snake".

When you realise that this kind of thinking has informed the Roman Catholic Church for hundreds and thousands of years its hardly surprising that right up until today the Church forbids women to be ordained or indeed have any meaningful say in the running of the Church.

Even though modern Church leaders would not dream of saying such things out loud (even though they may think like that) things have not changed at all in the Church when it comes to women.

Women cannot be popes, cardinals, bishops priests or deacons.

Women cannot hold positions of influence on any Church body whether at the local, national or international levels.

The men in the Church give the very lamest of excuses that "Jesus did not appoint women apostles".

That is absolute rubbish.

Jesus never had - or indeed envisaged - such offices as pope, cardinal, bishop, priest or deacon. These are man made offices.

And Jesus had plenty of women co-operators and disciples:



- There was Mary he mother of Jesus - who travelled with him and was directly responsible for his first miracle - turning water into wine at the wedding in Cana.

- There was Mary of Magdala - whom Jesus chose to be the FIRST witness of his resurrection.

- There were the women who travelled with him who "provided for their needs out of their own resources".

- There was Mary and Martha who ministered to Jesus at Bethany.

And in the New Testament we see women as being the leaders of early Christian communities.

The principle role of the priest today is the celebration of the Eucharist - what we believe to be the Body and Blood. 

It was Mary - Jesus mother - who first gave us the body and blood of Christ - LITERALLY by giving birth to him.

If a woman can give the world the Body of Christ LITERALLY - then why can she not do it SACRAMENTALLY? Its nonsense to say that she cannot.

There is no decent biblical, theological or rational reason for the subjugation of women in Roman Catholicism.




It is pure SEXISM and PATRIARCHALISM  that is behind keeping women as second class members of Roman Catholicism.

And yet women make up the biggest attending membership of the Church.

In this sense are not women contributing to and co-operating in their own subjugation?





  THIS IS MY BODY. THIS IS MY BLOOD
                                                   (Francis Croake)


Among the animals in the cold dank dark of a stable,
After the pain and the bleeding and the birthing;
Mary looked down at the baby lying across her legs
And said: "THIS IS MY BODY. THIS IS MY BLOOD".

In the shadows of the bleak Calvary hill,
After the pain and the bleeding and the dying;

Mary looked down at the broken frame across her legs
and said: "THIS IS MY BODY. THIS IS MY BLOOD".

Its just as well that she said it to Him then.
For now, dry old men,

In brocaded robes belying barrenness,
Ordain that she cannot say it to Him now.

    1. I think you will find that it is the RC Church that has that unhealthy obsession with sex.

      Have you read above?

  2. Indeed it does! Leviticus speaks of clean and unclean and is pretty precice when it comes to women. However medical science, psychology and personal hygiene have moved on since those days. So should the church-what soap does Treanor et all use? Easter good wishes and blessings to one and all

  3. Bishop Buckley, there is no more a gateway of the devil than a heretical and reprobate bishop of the Catholic Church. For such is a wolf in sheeps clothing. His eternal fate is the blackest of darkness.
