  • Yes of course

    The question is whether a true feminist can still be religious ??Unfortunately the answer is no ,because more or less or religious beliefs are based on patriarchal norms ,so at some point of time you will be compelled to denounce them. You cant argue for equal rights between sex while following the jesus christ teachings .

  • Yes of course

  • Yes, obviously it is.

    The major religions in the world today were originated from the patriarchal society. Religion are man made so the human at that age can't escape the idea of patriarchy. Due to the productivity of different gender both in the west and the east history it's common, religion is the old age product so not so odd to mix with patriarchal.

  • Yes of course!

    Entirely male - gods, prophets, apostles, popes, and in most religions all male priests. Why do women go along with these ancient beliefs with little female representation? Only 'god the father' and a 'son of god' in Christianity for example. All major religions are obviously patriarchal and most are inherently misogynistic. I say to men and women - be logical and brave and ditch all that childhood indoctrination.

  • What is the systematic affirmation of male dominance if not patriarchy?

    Do religious texts refer to God as male or female? Were the religious prophets or manifestations of God male or female? Are the present religious leaders male or female? Do religious teachings empower men or women? If these answers don't categorically prove to you that all major religions practiced today are patriarchal you are likely privileged by these institutions, and are biased to defend them by denying their inherent sexism.

  • Religion isn't patriarchal

    It is common to assume that religion, in the form that it was first founded, intended to be patriarchal and beneficial to men and men only, however the context in which religion was based has transformed over generations and it could be argued that it is the way in which men interpret the belief system and sacred texts that make women feel oppressed. This is certainly the case within the class system- e.g. the bourgeoisie exploit the proletariat through capitalism but justify this by interpreting sacred texts in the manner that they do and teaching this to the working classes in order to prevent revolutionary ideas by maintaining a false class consciousness: "work hard and you will be rewarded for your quiet suffering with entry in to Heaven"; it is better to be poor and humble than rich, etc. Religion serves as a source of hope and support, it is other agencies of 'social control' that make it seem patriarchal, religion itself is not.

  • Yes definitely patriarchal

    Religions are about conservatism and keeping the rules (status quo). Women are inherently dangerous because they bear the future populations. If there were only three men left and many women the world could go on, but not the other way. In the end men can be made (nearly) redundant so women must never realise their power. Nothing to do with intelligence ...To do with biology.

  • Yes, it is.

    Many religions seem to view men and women differently as well as unequal to each other, which can be seen in some verses of the Bible as well as Quran. Also, most leadership roles seem to be held by only men and in very rare cases, women. In most religions, at least in the major ones, women are not allowed to be priests for whatever reason, making it a position for only men.

  • Dunno wat to put as headline

    Im a Muslim so ill just tell for my own religion only.

    Some of the Muslimah wear hijab, and they are not feeling like forced at all. Why? Because they know and understand the reason 'why' they need to wear the hijab, and that's why they wear it.

    In Quran, everything, every deed, there are reason exist. It's not like, " You must wear hijab. Why? Cause you should? :v " No definitely none are like that. Please look at the reason why the rules establised, Same with our law. Just that we believe our Creator's rules is the best.

  • Religion itself isn't patriarchal.

    I accept that many world religions including Catholicism and Islam denounce women as inferior and restrict their rights but this isn't the case for all religions. The idea of religion itself ISN'T patriarchal however particular religions can be described in this way. If I was asked for example is Catholicism patriarchal then I would've replied yes.

  • No, not inherently.

    Some religions are patriarchal. For example, the Catholic church, which does not allow women to be priests or hold other top leadership positions. However, that does not mean that all religions are patriarchal. Not all institutions should be based on the actions of one. There is nothing in the nature of belief that means all religions are inherently patriarchal.
