The Evangelical Election Meltdown

Started by Joan Denoo. Last reply by Mrs.B Nov 15, 2020. 4 Replies

Seth offers us several silly, outrageous, ridiculous, disgusting examples of some evangelicals' reaction to Trump's loss. No wonder his crowds look and sound so vulgarly. There is no use in trying to reason with such hysteria.Continue

Stephen,  Jocelyn Bell Burnell's story is so much like the women of my generation. I was the first and only female majoring in horticulture when I went to the aggie school, Washington State College. 

My grandmothers took care of other people, their ironing, cleaning, and their bodies when they were too old to take care of themselves. 

My mother worked at Kaiser Rolling Mill during WW II because there weren't enough men to do the tasks. She was so good at her job she received promotions until she was in a supervisory role. As soon as the war ended she got her pink slip, as did all the women who worked in war industries. Her generation broke the tradition of "women's work."

My generation defined the fields we wanted in education and became the first in medical school, law school, and any profession they chose. When I bought my home in 1974 I had to have a husband, father, or son sign the mortgage papers. I was divorced and had no husband, my son was 10-years- old, and my father signed for me. I was the one who paid off the obligation with my earnings.

Chris B the only solace from this story of misogyny is I believe things are slowly improving 

Comment was by Stephen Brodie on August 1, 2021 at 1:27am

Jocelyn Bell actually made the discovery of Pulsars,

but Anthony Hewish got the Nobel Prize what an injustice.

I remember watching the children's TV show BluePeter about her discovery not knowing what happened later on about the Nobel Prize.

Comment was by Chris B on August 1, 2021 at 1:01am

Thanks for posting! She focusses on her work, not on her name, like men do. It's the same story as with the Wegener plates, the calculations to get people to the moon, and I've probably forgotten a dozen examples.

Comment was by Mrs.B on July 31, 2021 at 4:29pm

I cannot even imagine the depth of what she felt.

Comment was by Mrs.B on July 31, 2021 at 4:02pm

Smart, strong woman to have to struggle with so much outside the work.

Comment was by Stephen Brodie on July 31, 2021 at 11:03am

I Changed Astronomy Forever. He won the Nobel Prize for It.

What an injustice 
Comment was by Mrs.B on February 23, 2021 at 8:04pm

Yes, I've had some notifications up to 5 times for the same post, often hours apart.

Temporary yes, but a necessity for now until vaccines are world wide.

Comment was by Stephen Brodie on February 23, 2021 at 8:00pm

Mrs.B I think I agree with you that having to use a vaccine passport is no hardship, but I would want a guarantee that was temporary. We use vaccine passports when we travel to another country.

Comment was by Stephen Brodie on February 23, 2021 at 7:53pm

Mrs.B oddly enough just recently I've been getting repeat notifications sometimes hours apart. Annoying or what.
