Why I don't wote

As a citizen of the US, I have a right to vote. However, I do not exercise this right, because I believe that based on the Bible, it is wrong for women to vote.


Now, I am not trying to convince any other ladies of my beliefs. I simply wanted to share some Bible verses of why I believe what I believe, because I have been asked about it repeatedly.


1Timothy 2:12 - But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.


Based on the Bible, it is wrong for women to exercise authority over men. However, women voting can lead to a passing of laws that the majority of men would oppose. One example of this is abortion - more than 50% of men are against it, but more than 50% of women are for it, which is why it is legal.

Women have died in their campaign to earn the right to vote, You are entitled to your opinion but your justification is utter nonsense.

Then don't vote. And tell all your friends to obey the will of god.

> based on the Bible, it is wrong for women to vote.

Hey, you're right! But then again, based on the Bible, it is wrong for men to vote, too.

Let Greek and Roman pagans run those stupid democratic experiments, they'll *never* work. Monarchy is the future!

Why do these twits think Timothy's letters are part of the Bible anyways? Am I wrong, or are the 'Book of' books like peripheral accompanying texts? Timothy was a misogynistic scrote pimple who used his position to push his own agenda.

Well, at least this fundy indirectly acknowledges separation of church & state.

Wasn't Deborah a Judge in your book of contradictions? Didn't she kill Sisera?

This idiotic woman is actually acting against a democratic practice, and showing clearly that as far as fundies as concerned, the Bible doesn't approve of democracy, hitting out, as she indicates, against the essential act of democracy, the vote. She must be a commie. Moreover, she is trying to subvert others - by her own admission. She is a danger to the state.

"But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence. "

Now, if you believe this is a direct instruction to women, why are you breaking your divine-ordered silence to teach anyone else on what they should do?

I guess Stepford wives are real.

And the bright side is one less fundie voting.

One vote less for the GOP.

Can I use my male authority that apparently exists to command you to stop posting misogynist drivel?

And when all of those Y-chromosome-carrying politicians urge you to vote, what will you do?

This is how to bring down the patriarchy: when enough men as well as enough women don't feed into it, it will die.

Timothy's letters ... Timothy was a misogynistic scrote pimple who used his position to push his own agenda.

Complete and total Bible fail.

Those are letters *to* Timothy, not *by* him.

The letter were written by Paul, at least supposedly.

For what it's worth, I'd rather you not vote, too.

Why I don't wote.

You don't have to explain. I don't wote either. Not at my age.

Paul was a sexually dysfunctional misogynist - a never-married celibate. Why would anyone want to listen to anything he had to say on the subject of the role of women, marriage, sex or family life?

Agreed, you shouldn't vote. You shouldn't really be expressing your opinion, therefore, you should report to whatever man has authority over you so that he may chastise you. You should say a prayer to Bible God. Say the following:-

Jesus, I command thee to punish me, for I have openly expressed my opinion in a place where it is likely that men may be insulted and righteously angered by my inappropriate and insolent behavior.

O Jesus, my commanding man has beaten me but I feel as though you should further punish me for I am but a lowly and worthless female and have spoken out of turn.

Amen

Warning. Further punishments may be necessary after this unseemly display of unladylike behavior. Please, in future, remember your place, keep a low profile, remain silent unless a man speaks to you, practice your sandwich-making skills and be ready to spread 'em immediately on command.

Since you'd vote for the most right-wing nutjob you could find, I'm rather glad you don't vote.

Ah well, in two days time thousands of women in my country will vote for a party that does not allow women to be a member, and would like to see woman voting abolished.

Thankfully I can already tell that they will get two seats, like the last 30 years or so. At least
she is not voting against her right to vote.

And if you refuse to exercise your right to vote, then you have no right to complain or make commentary on the political landscape. In my view, those who refuse to take part in the process have not earned the privilege to criticize it.

If god's word is truth, it is THE truth, universal and unquestionable. So it's the truth whether or not god says it.
So go on, quit spouting bible verses and tell me why women shouldn't vote.
We ate from the tree of knowledge, we left the garden, and we've grown up as a species since. Stop trying to drag us back to the middle ages.

If you don't want to exercise the hard won right to vote, that is your prerogative, but you'd better show some goddamn respect for the women who fought so you could have that right.

And just so you know, voting is not an exercise of authority over men only. I find it sad that you'd rather be a brainwashed doormat than an independent person with a mind of your own, but it's your call.
