The other day I was reading Michal Moore's book, Stupid white men. In one chapter he said the women ratio is out numbering the men, and then going on on about how men deserve to be whipped out and all. But then I was thinking about the women ratio in the future and what it'll do to Christianity with in the next 40 years or so. I'm thinking that it'll come to three conclusions:

1. It'll raise the lesbians to a large majority in the world.

2. Or that Christianity will have to adopt a watered down version Mormonism of having the maximum of two wives.

3. Mormonism will dominate Christianity in the western world.

I'm willing to bet that at least one of these events will happen, if not all three. I do notice that Christianity constantly changes it's laws on marriage all the time. God is always there to seal a marriage but never around to bless the divorce papers. So sense Christianity is always backing out it's promises, it wouldn't surprise me that Christianity would steel this concept too. Sense they've already helped stolen land form natives, encouraged slavery and torcher, (indorsed it actually), and create generations of genocidal war. I'm actually surprised that they haven't stolen the mormonism doctrine yet.

Another thing I just want to also emphasis is that most evangelicals see Mormonism to be just as ridiculous as you and I see it.  There may be some who convert, but for the most part, I don't think that very many people will take it seriously.  Most Christians either laugh it off as a ridiculous and silly belief system, or they see it as something sinister and demonic.

Well in my experience I tend to notice how easily a female Christian will ignore and cherry pick the sexist areas of the bible in order to remain free and religious both at the same time. There's always some sort of excuse; its symbolic the old testament doesn't' apply anymore old laws blah blah blah. 

The old classic lying for Jesus tactic.

Réasúnach,

Christianity a la carte... it's got something for everyone.

So long as you are willing to pick out the distasteful parts :)

Geeze... Ok, how about 15 years, 3 months, 2 weeks, 3 days, 9 hours, 22 minutes and 52 seconds trapped on an island, and they are all in their 20's, if you want to get technical about it Karen. It's a freak'n example that you've missed twice now. Do you want to know what each of them their favorite color is too? The Island represents the world, and the ratio represents unbalanced genders.

Yes christianity is changing, and not because of the Bible, it's because of society and the future that it brings.


Look, *sigh...* Cristynfaye or anyone else reading this, I never said people choose their partners, but if the men ratio continues to dwindle, what do you think will happen to christianity once it faces this? I think that it behaves in a way that forces people to do something that they probably wouldn't normally do, like say some jobs no longer mail out checks, it's all direct deposit now, well some people don't like the idea of having someone going into there account and tampering with it. It violates privacy. Well to bad, you ether open an account or you don't get paid. You see how that option is now gone? Well if this goes on, it's the same deal. Now I'm not saying this is good or bad or anything, It's just watching christianity become so lose with it's "holy laws", it's hard to take any of it seriously.  I also never said that this "one and only" event will happen, a variety of events in the mix will happen, this being one of them. Now I'm willing to bet that within the my or your lifetime, will see that christianity will do this or something like it. And to those who say that this is just a fairy tale, all I can say to you is, give it time.

I remember the last chapter in a Feminist theory textbook, talking about the future, men a caged and milked for their sperm. The men are kept docile, because they are dangerous and untrainable for the long term.

Guys, it is time wake up and become good men, else the powerful women with heavy science knowledge will rise up and treat you like cattle. Remember, women know and remember how they were treated in the past, Given our history, it might seem justifiable.... 

Comment by Cristynfaye on July 10, 2012 at 8:04pm

Well there might be more gay Christians because Christianity as a whole is becoming more accepting of homosexuality.  So maybe more people will convert, or people who are already Christians will come out of the closet.

This has turned into a lesbian debate. There used to be bisexual people once too. Only they are not allowed to exist anymore because THERE IS NO CHOICE. Ho hum.

There have always been more women, numbers have not promoted their case at all, and if there are only a handful of men left on the planet, bet you a dollar one of them will be the one in power.
