It’s Crazy Bible Verse Tuesday and I’m pulling another verse or two from Ezekiel 23. There’s so much material to take from this single chapter!
“Therefore I delivered her into the hands of her lovers, the Assyrians, for whom she lusted. They stripped her naked, took away her sons and daughters and killed her with the sword. She became a byword among women, and punishment was inflicted on her.” – Ezekiel 23:9-10
This chapter basically says that a woman who likes to have sex was killed for the sole reason of sex with multiple partners. Huh? What about the men who willing slept with her? Were they killed? Nope! Only the woman is punished for having sex. On top of that, her sons and daughters were killed! As far as we know, the sons and daughters were virgins or only having sex with their husbands, but they were still killed for doing nothing!!!
We learned a few days ago that Deborah, a female, was leader of the Israelites at one time, but that didn’t stop the extreme misogyny in the Bible. Having sex as a women = bad. Having sex as a man = God’s reward to men. Sickening. Disgusting. Yet worshipped by over a billion people on this planet.
