What if Jesus was born a girl?
Honestly, I don’t think Christianity would have taken off. I can almost guarantee the Three Wise Men would have turned around at the disappointing sight of a mere girl. Fathers pass their teachings and life lessons to sons, it’s a campfire tradition, so of course, God would have to have a son.
According to Adam and Eve, men are supposed to provide the food while women bear children. This is no longer relevant. Women are waiting longer to settle down, preferring to complete the appropriate education and launch their careers. They no longer exist for men and men need to take notice. If women are also bringing food to the table, putting off what the good book tells them to do, men will need to take more of an active effort in the child rearing. They no longer have the excuse of “working all day” to come home to a quiet house- kids don’t equal a quiet house and with most millennial staying in the city, the space for peace and quiet will also diminish. Good.
I've said this before, Catholicism should put women in power. If they did, maybe, just maybe there wouldn’t be rampant child molestation. Women in power would persecute the men for their crimes because they were never part of the centuries old trade. Popes, especially during the Renaissance were known to have boy lovers, that’s been the known secret that has passed on through the generations. Also, it appears to me that women deal with sexual frustration more than men. I don't have any stats but I have yet to come across an example of women acting out violently or maliciously due to taking part in a sexual repressive society. This can also be attributed to the amount of domestic violence amongst the radical Islam.
Nuns need to have equal power to priests. The idea that God is a man and his word can only be translated by a man is just another form of men manipulating their power with zero evidence to support their claim… and no the Bible doesn’t count because it is a collection of stories written by men. In order to restore faith in Catholicism and religion in general, women should hold more governing and authoritative power otherwise risk becoming irrelevant to any true social conversation. Then I’d take the whole idea of an omnipresent, merciful and all-knowing deity a little more seriously.
