Should Girls Go to College? [...]

In the past few years, we have seen many young people who appeared to be wise beyond their years go away to college and seemingly lose everything their parents taught them. We have seen them turn their back on God and break their parent's hearts. After witnessing such things, we began really thinking through the whole college experience in light of God's Word.

God created women to be the 'help meets' for men (Genesis 2:18). Women are not only created to be the 'help meets' for man, they are created to be under the authority of a man (Ephesians 5:22, Colossians 3:18, 1 Timothy 2:12). Scripture is clear that fathers and husbands are to be the heads of their household (1 Corinthians 11:3) and that wives are to submit to their husbands (Ephesians 5:22). How does college prepare a young woman for any of those things?

Hence why I say that IF God exists and IF He wrote that Bible then He definitely does not deserve to be worshipped.

Doormat for jesus award. Screw you, lady. If YOU want to remain ignorant, be my guest, but don't encourage other females to do the same.

Allegory for Jesus

Yeah, yeah...women are the slaves of men, and education is the devil. And you fail to see anything wrong with either of those two beliefs. Typical...

Ward, there's something wrong with the Beaver...

Fuck you and your archaic gender roles.

I rather be a well educated, independent woman with a my Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Education in my hands than a slave, passive and baby popping machine.

"We have seen them turn their back on God and break their parent's hearts"

My parents were thrilled when i got into university... it took me 2 years of sweat and blood to achieve such a goal. And if God didn't want me to go to university he should have intervene... but i think that God is proud of me too...

And now you know why fundy-ism is such a fuck.

How she dares to tell us what is right in god's eyes!

She is just a woman and should be silent and be her man's help meet! (or is het help meat?)

All of my female friends, several of which are in, or are planning to go to, college would like your head on a pike, please.

Remember, you're supposed to be obedient to men, so hurry up about it.

Women can do whatever now.

Deal with it.

It teaches women to think for themselves and have a life of their own outside the limited bounds a primitive belief system imposes on them.

You wanna be a doormat, that's your choice.

5/7/2008 5:55:48 AM


If the backward religion this fundy believes in is true, then why are young people who become highly educated rejecting this religion?

5/7/2008 6:04:36 AM


Uh oh... someone's trying to rationalise having all her college applications turned down.

And what are you doing telling us the mind of God and instructing in the Word? Aren't you a woman and forbidden to do so by that very same instruction manual for a thought-free existence?

5/7/2008 6:13:55 AM


From your side of things, I would think that an educated husband would want an educated wife, if just to have more educated conversations.

That's a generalization. I know many people who didn't go to college who are quite intelligent. Just looking for a fundie reason...

Barefoot and pregnant, just how Jebus wants 'em

Deep Search

If GOD is so powerful and great and your religion infallible and true, then how are the teachings of GOD and the bible so easily lost? It can't be that they are oppressive, ridiculous, and limiting... Can it?

Talk about being brought up in a cult.

For starters its Help Mates... You seem to have skipped the need for basic english alongside your need for further education.

Secondly, I want my "help meet" to be able to assemble and operate a giant death laser/orbital space station/giant robot/genetically engineer godzilla/defend me in court against charges of supervillainy... That requires college education. Uneducated housewives SUCK at that. Believe me I have tried. One second they are happily doing what they are told, the next they have accidentally used my supply of mutagenic milk to make tea and coffee for the minions and I have to deal with Beebop and Rocksteady...

Thirdly... You are as bad as the Taliban. I hope one day someone emasculates you... With a rusty spoon.

Dear Crystal,

Did your man beat you into accepting this view? If yes, then you have my sympathies. If no, then you should be beaten for caving in without a fight!

5/7/2008 7:58:49 AM


Interesting that all but one of her references are from Paul, and none of them are from Jesus.

@FMG: You win the internet for your second point.

[We have seen them turn their back on God]

And that is what is really sad... all these promising young college women having to share a single back.

Mr Smith

Should Girls Go to College?
Yes. Have you seen those "Girls Gone Wild!" videos? :)

5/7/2008 8:53:31 AM


Is it a she?

5/7/2008 9:11:55 AM


Betcha didn't read those gospels the "church" said aren't "real", right? You know, the ones where Mary of M. was the head of the church, not Peter. Right... dead sea scrolls are a fake?

Times like this I wish someone would find a complete copy of the bible before the misogynistic monks "edited" it to suppress all that goddess worship going on around them.

5/7/2008 9:31:57 AM


Since you have no balls, a good cunt punt would be in order here.

5/7/2008 9:33:03 AM


"Help meet" is not a word, you fucking dunce! "Meet" is used as an adjective! A fucking adjective! If you're so goddamn fixated on trying to use a dead language then go to fucking college and learn it, idiot! This is precisely why they wrote updated versions - so that clueless morons like yourself don't end up making stupid mistakes trying to blindly guess what the archaic constructions mean! THIS IS WHY YOU SHOULD GO TO COLLEGE! SO THAT YOU FUCKING LEARN STUFF BEFORE YOU TRY TO TALK ABOUT IT!
