  • 7. Let us look at examples of history’s “macho men” to find out…
  • 8. THE HINDU CODE OF MANU “ In childhood a woman must be subject to her father; in youth to her husband; when her husband is dead, to her sons. A woman must never be free from subjugation.”
  • 9. ARISTOTLE “ The female is a female by virtue of a certain lack of qualities – a natural defectiveness.”
  • 10. TERTULLIAN “ Woman is a temple built over a sewer, the gateway to the devil. Woman, you are the devil’s doorway. You should always go in mourning and in rags.”
  • 11. AUGUSTINE OF HIPPO “ Any woman who acts in such a way that she cannot give birth to as many children as she is capable of, makes herself guilty of many murders.”
  • 12. CONFUCIUS “ One hundred women are not worth a single testicle.”
  • 13. JOHN CHRYSOSTOM “ Among all savage beasts, none is found so harmful as woman.”
  • 14. THE COUNCIL OF MACON, 584 Women were declared to be human by one vote according to an all-male council
  • 15. MOHAMMED “ Men are superior to women.”
  • 16. THOMAS AQUINAS “ Woman is defective and accidental…and misbegotten…a male gone awry…the result of some weakness in the (father’s) generative power.”
  • 17. MARTIN LUTHER “ If a woman grows weary and, at last, dies from child bearing, it matters not. Let her die from bearing; she is there to do it.”
  • 18. JOHN KNOX “ Woman in her greatest perfection was made to serve and obey man, not rule and command him.”
  • 19. SAMUEL BUTLER “ The souls of women are so small that some believe they’ve none at all.”
  • 20. NAPOLEON BONAPARTE “ Nature intended women to be our slaves. They are our property.”
  • 21. JOSEPH SMITH “ Accept this doctrine [polygamy] and allow me to have as many wives as I like, along as they are all virtuous and pure.” (said to his first wife)
  • 22. BRIGHAM YOUNG “ Take a plural wife or two…since this is the surest cure for a shrewdish and recalcitrant female.”
  • 23. ORTHODOX JEWISH MEN PRAY… “ Blessed art thou, O Lord our God and king of the universe, that thou didst not create me a woman.”
  • 24. OSCAR WILDE “ No woman is a genius; women are a decorative sex.”
  • 25. GROVER CLEVELAND “ Sensible and responsible women do not want to vote.”
  • 26. THOMAS EDISON “ Direct thought is not an attribute of femininity. In this, women are now centuries behind men.”
  • 27. BRUCE MCCONKIE “ Woman’s primary place is in the home, where she is to rear children and abide by the righteous council of her husband.”
  • 28. JAMES THURBER “ A woman’s place is in the wrong.”
  • 29. JAMES DOBSON “ My observation is that women are merely waiting for their husbands to assume leadership.”
  • 30. JERRY FALWELL “ I listen to feminists and all these radical gals – most of them are failures. Most of the feminists need a man to tell them what time of day it is and to lead them home.”
  • 31. PAT ROBERTSON “ [Feminism is] a socialist, anti-family, political movement that encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism, and become lesbians.”
  • 32. BILL MCCARTNEY “ Women readers, submit for the survival of our culture.”
  • 33. PAT BUCHANAN “ The real liberators of American women were not the feminist noise-makers, they were the automobile, the supermarket, the shopping center, the dishwasher, the washer-dryer, the freezer.”
  • 34. POPE BENEDICT XVI “ [Banning women from the priesthood] is necessary in order to protect true doctrine, to safeguard the communion and unity of the church, and to guide consciences of the faithful.”
