I don't really have anything to add, except for this:
Isn't it interesting that this latest version of Patriarchy claims Christianity?
And yet its members don't know WHO THEIR DADDY IS:
- They use the sexist absolutist elitist reasoning methods (i.e., the phallogocentrism) of the ancient Greek patriarchs without ever once anywhere or anytime giving Father Plato or Father Aristotle their due.
- They appropriate Jewish scriptures from far away and long ago (such as from the polygamist, womanizing king David's Psalm 127: "Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are sons born in one's youth. Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them. They shall not be put to shame when they contend with their enemies in the gate"; and this line - "Be fruitful and multiply" - from Daddy Moses's Genesis creation account and from his post-flood passages on Pappa Noah).
- They don't entirely dismiss the Pope.
- They are narrowly limited to North Americans (maybe only in the USA) - perhaps imagining that they owe something to the Founding Fathers and their colonizing efforts.
