Women’s Plight Perpetuated by World Religions

From Huffington Post, June 28, 2013

ATLANTA — Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter says religious leaders, including those in Christianity and Islam, share the blame for mistreatment of women across the world.

The human rights activist said Friday religious authorities perpetuate misguided doctrines of male superiority, from the Catholic Church forbidding women from becoming priests to some African cultures mutilating the genitals of young girls.

A Peaceful World Awaits You Beyond All Religion

  • Most all religions are based upon a bedrock of lies.
    Moses is based on the Sumerian life and legends of Sargon I, King of Akkad, “set in a basket of rushes and “cast into the river”. Egyptians kept exhausting hieroglyphic records. There is a complete absence of any record of Moses leading over 600,000 men, women and children away from Pharaoh’s army.
    See awesome revelations here: https://beyondallreligion.net/old-testament/
    Joseph Smith, founder of Mormonism, was convicted in a court of Law of being an “impostor”, today a fraud, con man, in 1826. He wrote the Book of Mormon soon after.

    Question: You decide: Does the text of the verses of the Qur’an correspond exactly to those revealed to Muhammad directly as the words of God, delivered to Muhammad (who married a 6 year old girl) through the angel Gabriel, as claimed? See: https://beyondallreligion.net/islam/
    Christianity was invented by Emperor Constantine , for political purposes, based upon the myth of Mithra, a Persian savior god born on December 25 , son of a virgin. Mithra performed miracles and was later crucified. Pope Leo X (died 1521) called Christ a “Fable”. Later Pope Paul III expressed similar sentiments.

A NEW LOOK AT THE OLD TESTAMENT!


Abraham, Solomon and David: Romantic Nonsense?

WAS THE PATRIARCH ABRAHAM JUST A STORY?  DID ABRAHAM EXIST?  You decide:

From: http://ancienthistory.about.com/od/amen/a/122710-CW-Archaeological-Evidence-About-The-Story-Of-Abraham-In-The-Bible.htm

abrahamHistorians date Abraham’s bibilical story around 2000 B.C., based on clues in Genesis Chapters 11 through 25. Considered the first of the biblical     patriarchs, Abraham’s life history encompasses a journey starts that in a place called Ur. In Abraham’s time, Ur was one of the great city-states in Sumer, a part of the Fertile Crescent located from the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers in Iraq to the Nile in Egypt. Historians call this era from 3000 to 2000 B.C. “the dawn of civilization” .

It turns out that Abraham in the Bible is undoubtedly just a story.

Abraham in the Bible:  Promotion of lands surrounding and now occupied by Israel began a long time ago in the Old Testament. The Judean scribes did their writing in about 700 BCE, referring to happenings that supposedly existed  more than about a thousand years prior to when they were writing. Abraham in the Bible has al the markings of being just a made-up  story:

Were There Important Whistleblowers INSIDE Religion?

 Indeed there WERE IMPORTANT Whistleblowers INSIDE Religion.

To name a few:

Arius for one who disagreed with Christ being divine, and said Christ was instead a “created being”.  (See below for more on Arius).

At the Nicene Council:

From: Did Constantine Decide What Books Belonged in the Bible?
http://www.gotquestions.org

“Constantine called the council of Nicea (which was the first general council of the Christian church, 325 A.D.) primarily because he feared that disputes within the church would cause disorder within the empire. The dispute in mind was Arianism, which was the belief that Jesus was a created being.”

At the end of the Council, the Council produced the Nicene Creed after much arm twisting and threats. Christ was made divine by a Vote! Arius was classed as a heretic. The Nicene Creed promoted the Trinity- “ – the deity of The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit under one Godhead, having three co-equal and co-eternal Persona.” (ibid)  It is said that at the end very few present believed what was written (i.e. the Nicene Creed).

What did Arius believe?

From: http://www.inplainsite.org/html/council_of_nicea.html

“In the populous Alexandria suburb of Baucalis, a well-liked presbyter by the name of Arius began teaching in opposition to the bishop of Alexandria, Alexander. Specifically, he disagreed with Alexander’s teaching that Jesus, the Son of God, had existed eternally, being “generated” eternally by the Father. Instead, Arius insisted that “there was a time when the Son was not.” Christ must be numbered among the created beings — highly exalted, to be sure, but a creation, nonetheless. Alexander defended his position, and it was not long before Arius was declared a heretic in a local council in 321.

This did not end the matter. Arius simply moved to Palestine and began promoting his ideas there. Alexander wrote letters to the churches in the area, warning them against those he called the “Exukontians,” from a Greek phrase meaning “out of nothing.” Arius taught that the Son of God was created “out of nothing.” Arius found an audience for his teachings, and over the course of the next few years the debate became so heated that it came to the attention of Constantine, the Emperor.

Having consolidated his hold on the Empire, Constantine promoted unity in every way possible. He recognized that a schism in the Christian church would be just one more destabilizing factor in his empire, and he moved to solve the problem.4 While he had encouragement from men like Hosius, bishop of Cordova, and Eusebius of Caesarea, Constantine was the one who officially called for the council. ”

Beyond all the Religions

You may be interested in the following lengthy list of Bible verses compiled and paraphrased by renowned freethinker Barbara G. Walker:

While we are on the subject of religion, to be fair, I must add for balance purposes: The Bible is not peaceful. The Koran is not peaceful. The Buddhists in Tibet were not peaceful, the Mormons: “Slit their Throats”-said Brigham Young… A rabbi said “a million Arabs are not worth one Jewish fingernail”.

The above said, let us move BEYOND ALL RELIGION, allowing the brilliant beacon of peace and truth to illuminate the world bringing love, tolerance and healing to all.

WHO WAS THIS?

WHO WAS THIS?  (See “ punch line” at the end after the word “Included”!)
Holes pierced in his feet … a hole in the top of one foot, just above the toes, where the nail was inserted in the act of crucifixion.  Savior __________ atoned for the sins of a grief-stricken world by “pouring out his blood as a propitiatory offering” while stretched upon the cross.But Before the crucifixion :  “he soon became surrounded by many earnest followers, and the people in vast multitudes followed him, crying aloud, ‘This is indeed the Redeemer promised to our fathers.’” His pathway was thickly strewn with miracles, which consisted in healing the sick, curing lepers, restoring the dumb, deaf and the blind, raising the dead, aiding the weak, comforting the sorrow-stricken, relieving the oppressed, casting out devils, etc. He come not ostensibly to destroy the previous religion, but to purify it of its impurities, and to preach a better doctrine. He came, as he declared, “to reject evil and restore the reign of good, and redeem man from the consequences of the fall, and deliver the oppressed earth from its load of sin and suffering.” His disciples believed him to be God himself, and millions worshiped him  ….
There is more:
1. His miraculous birth by a virgin.
2. The mother and child being visited by shepherds, wise men and the angelic host, who joyously sang, “In thy delivery, O favored among women, all nations shall have cause to exult.”
3. The edict of the tyrant ruler ______, ordering all the first born to be put to death.
4. The miraculous escape of the mother and child from his bloody decree by the parting of the waves of the River ________ to permit them to pass through on dry ground.
5. The early retirement of ________ to a desert.
6. His baptism or ablution in the River _________….
7. His transfiguration at ________, where he assured his disciples that “present or absent, I will always be with you.”
8. He was anointed with oil by women.
9. …fish story is told of him — his disciples being enabled by him to catch large draughts of the finny prey in their nets. Many of the precepts uttered by ___________display a profound wisdom and depth of thought.
For a list of them Click on the Christianity page above and slide to the end.
Here is one of the final ones: Above all things, cultivate love for your neighbor.

WHO WAS THIS?  This was Chrishna (Krishna) of India, who according to tradition was crucified approximately 1200 B.C. Incidentally, he had a “virgin” birth, either by a hair of the Hindu God Vishnu entering his mother’s womb, or in another version of the myth, God Vishnu himself entering her womb.

At Amazon.com, take a look at my book “Beyond All Religion-Beyond religious SCRIPTURES and practices that support intolerance violence and even war, A PEACEFUL WORLD AWAITS”.  http://tinyurl.com/7cz2cwv
INCLUDED: How is this for religious intolerance? Rabbi Yaacov Perrin said, “One million Arabs are not worth a Jewish fingernail.” Muhammad married a 6 year old girl. Joseph Smith, the founder of Mormonism had 24 wives, one was 14 years old. Smith was convicted of fraud (of being an “imposter”- a con man), in a court of law.. Then he wrote “The Book of Mormon..”. The story of Moses is patterned after the story of Sargon the Great. Moses did not exist.  Christianity was invented for political purposes by the Roman Emperor Constantine (“The Great”) in 325 A.D. based on the myth of Mithra (Persian savior god born on December 25th).
