Dear Conservative Women,
Did you ever see someone you care about get caught up in a bad situation, get beaten up, abused, and pushed around by someone they loved? It hurts to watch doesn’t it? Makes you feel powerless and helpless and just really sucks.
I don’t know if you’ve ever been in that situation, but it’s pretty common that when you try to intervene, they make crazy excuses or attack you by proclaiming that you don’t understand or “You’re just looking for an excuse not to like him!” It feels like you’ve got your hands tied behind your back, watching your family/friend suffer until you can’t watch anymore. So, you slowly separate yourself until you never see or hear from them again. At that point, all you can hope for is that they’re still alive and learn to love themselves enough to get out of that horrible relationship. But, at least it’s good to know that you tried, that you made an effort to do something about it.
This is your intervention.
No, I am not being facetious or sarcastic. Nor am I trying to “save your soul” by delivering you to the Goddess (because pagans don’t do that), no. I am genuinely afraid for you because most of you are Christian. And though I don’t have any beefs with Christ because he was just a teacher (and not too bad of one from what I read) , I’ve got a major issue or two with his “Father.”
I am really concerned about this “big daddy in the sky” and his relationship with some of his followers, particularly those that have a relationship with you.
I don’t know how else to put this, but I think he hates you.
Now, I’m not saying that I’m right or wrong, I’m just giving you my perspective, from the outside looking in – because when you’re underwater, you can’t tell if it’s raining…
First of all, from what I understand, he’s omnipresent, right? Knows everything, does everything, creates and destroys everything, and it’s all by his own volition. He’s this massive multi-tasker, micro-manager in the sky that knows you better than yourself and if you don’t follow his rules, you’ll be severely punished — particularly if you’re guilty of these “7 deadly sins” if I understand correctly. So, he does it ALL. By himself. All the time.
If that’s the case, you are not created in his image.
He doesn’t need a woman, so why would he give one to his son? That doesn’t make sense. If he can do everything by himself, wouldn’t he want the same for his child? Lilith wasn’t necessary. Eve wasn’t necessary. Girls, according to the image of your god are simply not necessary. If you were indeed created in your god’s image, according to Genesis, then your god would be a hybrid of all kinds of wonders; man, woman, whale, fish, cat, dog, tree, rock, bird, slug, dinosaur…
So, either your god is lying to you or his “real” kids are.
How can you trust and love someone who’s lied to you?
So, not being a direct descendant of the mighty father, the message to you has been made very clear that you are a luxury, not a necessity. You were “given” to his kids…like a toy.
Toys are meant to be played with. They are meant to be available when your owner says so, handled upon his command, and then put in your place when he’s done.
So, technically, there is no rape in your world, is there?
It’s your duty to present your “sin” and carry your god’s real children’s seed until they are brought into the earth as future masters or future toys. Now, I can understand why you’ve been so quiet…
Okay, maybe you’ve got a great house filled with great kids and a great marriage with someone you love with all your heart, so you’re probably wondering why I’m wasting my time. Look, if that is the case? Outstanding! Seriously, congratulations! That’s awesome! You’ve found the good life! You’ve found your utopia and that is really wonderful, so what’s the point in thinking of anyone else?
Because your life is the life! You’re happy, everyone else should find happiness the same way – you know, the “saved” thing. Because everyone is like you, or at least maybe you think they are. Everyone was born in a house with a garage, right?
Or maybe you were told that they did. But, I’m really sorry. That’s not true, either.
I want you to know I believe everyone deserves happiness and I am glad for you. But, happy or not, you were never given a choice. Your “one-man-show god” doesn’t need you. He never has. Take a moment to think about what kind of real man would punish the daughters of a woman because she sought knowledge? Would your father beat your kids because you wanted to go to school? Who would hold such a grudge and punish the innocent because their mother wanted to learn so she could question and evolve, maybe have an impact…be Free.
A lot of women are in shelters now for the exact same reason.
You should meet them.
You have more in common than you think.
Yours in sisterhood,
