I mainly find it amongst those hwo have se thtmeselve sup as Eneies of Christendom. Neo-Pagans and Atheists hwo ar eintent on discussing why CHristianity is hte greatest evil to visit the world, or at leats find ample reaosn for it ot be Critisised, namly lathc onto such arguments.
Mianly they parrot it form others, who got it form soemoen else, ad nauseum. I do not even know the origins but doubt many of them arrived a thtis conclusion direclty. I also doubt many out much thuth into it or even bothered to read the texts for that they said, rathe than snippet quotes. Those thsat do are ismply looking for reaosns to be critical.
Thus they seek the verses they cna use to suppot their proposition whilst ignorign those that d o not.
Cultural considerations, History, and he actual meanign of hwat Paul said is ignroed, as are verses htta praise owmen, in order to depict the Sexism they wan tot storngly to be rpasen ot justiy their anger and rage.
I am more puzzled by the osurce of he rage, rather htan by the existane of such arguments. THey are easy to see through, btu why is it that so many are os opposed violently to Christendom? Although the majorty seem to be Ex-Christiasn themselves, and htis may play a vital role in unravlign the puzzle.
I think if you knew what the comps argue it would make you sick.

You better believe it. I went on CARM and was utterly flabbergasted. One of them was basically saying, in a nutshell, that
everything strong and ruthlessly logical and based on reason is male, and everything fluffy and emotional and mentally fuzzy is female. Where he found that in the Bible, I'll never know. He actually made me angry enough to post, when I'd sworn to myself I wouldn't except to support Joe. Erg. Now I've laid myself open to abuse over there. But I won't withdraw what I said in reply.
"Oh Jerusalem, Jerusalem, how I have longed to gather you to Me, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you would not." Jesus wasn't afraid to use a feminine metaphor in reference to Himself.
what name did you post under? those guys are pathetic.
