Bible Does Not Say that Women are Inferior

To Someone,

God was not happy with Adam, nor with Eve. I don't think God is playing favorites here.

Genesis 3:16-20:
"Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee. And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life; Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field; In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return. And Adam called his wife's name Eve; because she was the mother of all living."

"It's obvious, according to the plain meaning of words, that Christians believe women are inferior. It's right in the good book."
Respondent, would you please show me the chapter/s and verses in the Bible that you are referring to?

Respondent, is your head inferior to your body? Which could you do without?

Postscript to Someone Else: I thank God for Social Security. I certainly would not cut funds for those who have come to need these benefits to live on. But, yes; I agree with you, to a point, in that benefits should be cut or eliminated for those who have been so blessed, such as you, who don't need the resource for basic needs, and especially in light of the present instability of this good program. That is what the name "social security" implies to me. Christians not only have a duty to look out for themselves, but more importantly, for one another. How does anyone know what is around the corner in their life? Thank God for 'social security,' and the Christian principles that guide us.
