    God made them the supreme authority. He chose Abraham, Moses, David, etc to lead them. You arguing that God is made in man's image is a complete non-sequitur when discussing what BELIEVERS do. You are a moron.

    All this questioning of somebody's self-identification as male...the hate speech is strong here.

    Yeah, if a man can claim to be a 5 year old girl and the liberals cheer him on, why can't God claim to be a man without the liberals pitching a hissy?

    What Tass thinks of that was not the point. Why god was conceived of as male was the point Tass was making regardless of how he feels about the patriachal nature of ancient Israelites. You can bet if it were a Matriachal culture god would most likely have been conceived of as a female. Probably would have made for a better world as well.

    I think we both know that given the choice, Jesus would never be a republican.

    Well, He was Jewish, and a resident of Israel, so ....

    That is still the case and barring millions of years of evolution in the opposite direction (unlikely) that will always be the case.

    There is no such thing as innocence, only degrees of guilt.

    It is demonstrably not the case. Women have gained equal rights in the developed world and acquired premier status in many governments worldwide. The days when women had the legal status of "chattels" have long gone.
