Mr Cummings makes the same mistakes as many who do not understand the difference between what the Bible actually says and what religion teaches. I assume he means Judeo-Christian though he does not say.
Even the most cursory of examination of scripture would show that there is no basis at all for the mistreatment of women. The fact that men and women have different make-ups and fulfil different roles is nothing to do with a lack of emancipation as you claim.
Consider the verses that follow the quotation from (1)Peter chapter 3. “you husbands continue dwelling with according to knowledge. Assigning them honor as to a weaker vessel the feminine one…….. in order for your prayers not to be hindered.”
Similarly in Ephesians 5 he omits to continue the passage which reads “ Husbands continue loving your wives just as the Christ and gave himself up for it (that is be prepared to die for your wife) hardly dragging them by the hair! He goes on to say that “husbands should love their wives as they do themselves.” Thus no Christian man would assault his wife either in word or deed. Children are told to “honor their father and their mother.”
Jesus set the perfect example and wherever you read of his interaction with women it is nothing less than respectful and kind the same qualities afforded to anyone.
