"It is past time that:
he was subjected to the R A T I O N A L critique that
he has evaded so arrogantly and for so long."

THE very last sentence written 
("Afterword," page 105)
by Mr Christopher Hitchens 
inside his 1995 dedication to Gertrude and Edwin Blue entitled
The Missionary Position:
Mother Teresa in Theory and Practice

It is a good thing to remember — — so as to try so, so hard as to .not. repeat such .his.tory, not ?

Yeah, yesterday ? 1975 ? the bugout.

As a parent who cannot even imagine having .ever. to make these decisions, here are my heroes of that time: the Mama and the Daddy who themselves hurled onto a moving carrier, the USS Kirk, in deep, deep waters outside Saigon on 30 April 1975, with the Parents’ Chinook running out of fuel, a drop of at least 18 feet as Daddy hovered the aircraft above it — — their 8 – month – old, their two – year – old and their five – year – old.

Then Mama jumped, too; and Daddy purposely plunged the chopper into the seas, the suction of that act pulling him down way under.  He was gone from others’ view; then at least 30 seconds’ later, Daddy surfaced and lived.

As well then and a very few days afore that specific 30th of April, there is, too, this hero, one with his then having no biological children of his own: Mr John Riordan, and who himself was out and safe inside Hong Kong — — but volunteered to his banking colleague with him there … … to catch the very last flight BACK IN TO Saigon.

And went BACK TO HIS Saigon bank to save and get altogether out in the final four hours of that day a total of … … 105, certain to be tortured and to die if left behind, of his Vietnamese employees, along ... ... with almost all of them saved as well, their entire biological and related family members.

on Earth Day y2016, Ya' May Wanna Know About This ... ...

... ... about this:  https://hopejahrensurecanwrite.com/2014/08/29/thursday-night-dear-colleague-letter

(You may want to know .not. about sending email transmissions to very UNintended people.)  Instead:  You may want to know that .still. in y2016 ?  STILL in y2016, and WORLDWIDE, women and girls .still. meet up with SEXISM in S C I E N C E endeavors of theirs.

Who'd've thought, back when I was 18, in May y1966, and graduated high school, rural Midwest, as at where was raised also Dr Jahren, that this muck 'd still exist.

Rampantly.  In the USA !  Let alone, Worldwide.

Who would have thought this ?  Who would have thought that not only is SEXISM Worldwide not only .not. COMPLETELY GONE by the year 2016, but that SEXISM is incredibly h u g e l y existent .STILL. in allegedly First World and E D U C A T E D areas ? !  Who ? !

You already .do. know this:  There IS a solution.
NOT only is there a solution ... ... but this as well ! = the solution is freakin' C H E A P ! 
IF ONLY !

Where is, in y2016 and beyond, the solution therefor:  the W I L L (ingness)?

Mr Frost's Two Tramps in Mud Time

Check out, in particular, verse #3 !

TWO TRAMPS IN MUD TIME

Mr Robert Frost 

 
Out of the mud two strangers came
And caught me splitting wood in the yard,
And one of them put me off my aim
By hailing cheerily "Hit them hard!"
I knew pretty well why he had dropped behind
And let the other go on a way.
I knew pretty well what he had in mind:
He wanted to take my job for pay. 


Good blocks of oak it was I split,
As large around as the chopping block;
And every piece I squarely hit
Fell splinterless as a cloven rock.
The blows that a life of self-control
Spares to strike for the common good,
That day, giving a loose my soul,
I spent on the unimportant wood. 


The sun was warm but the wind was chill.
You know how it is with an April day
When the sun is out and the wind is still,
You're one month on in the middle of May.
But if you so much as dare to speak,
A cloud comes over the sunlit arch,
A wind comes off a frozen peak,
And you're two months back in the middle of March. 


A bluebird comes tenderly up to alight
And turns to the wind to unruffle a plume,
His song so pitched as not to excite
A single flower as yet to bloom.
It is snowing a flake; and he half knew
Winter was only playing possum.
Except in color he isn't blue,
But he wouldn't advise a thing to blossom. 


The water for which we may have to look
In summertime with a witching wand,
In every wheelrut's now a brook,
In every print of a hoof a pond.
Be glad of water, but don't forget
The lurking frost in the earth beneath
That will steal forth after the sun is set
And show on the water its crystal teeth. 


The time when most I loved my task
The two must make me love it more
By coming with what they came to ask.
You'd think I never had felt before
The weight of an ax-head poised aloft,
The grip of earth on outspread feet,
The life of muscles rocking soft
And smooth and moist in vernal heat. 


Out of the wood two hulking tramps
(From sleeping God knows where last night,
But not long since in the lumber camps).
They thought all chopping was theirs of right.
Men of the woods and lumberjacks,
The judged me by their appropriate tool.
Except as a fellow handled an ax
They had no way of knowing a fool. 


Nothing on either side was said.
They knew they had but to stay their stay
And all their logic would fill my head:
As that I had no right to play
With what was another man's work for gain.
My right might be love but theirs was need.
And where the two exist in twain
Theirs was the better right--agreed. 


But yield who will to their separation,
My object in living is to unite
My avocation and my vocation
As my two eyes make one in sight.
Only where love and need are one,
And the work is play for mortal stakes,
Is the deed ever really done
    For Heaven and the future's sakes.

On the 24th anniversary of My Daddy's Dying ... ... Just Two Years After ACTUALLY Apologizing to Me for ANY "Religious Education" (= Child Abuse)

Why Women Need Freedom FROM Religion

Organized religion always has been and remains the greatest enemy of women’s rights. In the Christian-dominated Western world, two bible verses in particular sum up the position of women:

“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.” By this third chapter of Genesis, woman lost her rights, her standing—even her identity, and motherhood became a God-inflicted curse degrading her status in the world.

In the New Testament, the bible decrees:
“Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection. But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence. For Adam was first formed, then Eve. And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.” 1 Tim. 2:11-14

One bible verse alone, “Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live” is responsible for the death of tens of thousands, if not millions, of women. Do women and those who care about them need further evidence of the great harm of Christianity, predicated as it has been on these and similar teachings about women?

Church writer Tertullian said “each of you women is an Eve . . . You are the gate of Hell, you are the temptress of the forbidden tree; you are the first deserter of the divine law.”

Martin Luther decreed: “If a woman grows weary and at last dies from childbearing, it matters not. Let her die from bearing, she is there to do it.” 

Such teachings prompted 19th-century feminist Elizabeth Cady Stanton to write: “The Bible and the Church have been the greatest stumbling blocks in the way of woman’s emancipation.”

The various Christian churches fought tooth and nail against the advancement of women, opposing everything from women’s right to speak in public, to the use of anesthesia in childbirth (since the bible says women must suffer in childbirth) and woman’s suffrage. Today the most organized and formidable opponent of women’s social, economic and sexual rights remains organized religion. Religionists defeated the Equal Rights Amendment. Religious fanatics and bullies are currently engaged in an outright war of terrorism and harassment against women who have abortions and the medical staff which serves them. Those seeking to challenge inequities and advance the status of women today are fighting a massive coalition of fundamentalist Protestant and Catholic churches and religious groups mobilized to fight women’s rights, gay rights, and secular government.

Why do women remain second-class citizens? Why is there a religion-fostered war against women’s rights? Because the bible is a handbook for the subjugation of women. The bible establishes woman’s inferior status, her “uncleanliness,” her transgressions, and God-ordained master/servant relationship to man. Biblical women are possessions: fathers own them, sell them into bondage, even sacrifice them. The bible sanctions rape during wartime and in other contexts. Wives are subject to Mosaic - law sanctioned “bedchecks” as brides, and male jealousy fits and no-notice divorce as wives. The most typical biblical labels of women are “harlot” and “whore.” They are described as having evil, even satanic powers of allurement. Contempt for women’s bodies and reproductive capacity is a bedrock of the bible. The few role models offered are stereotyped, conventional and inadequate, with bible heroines admired for obedience and battle spirit. Jesus scorns his own mother, refusing to bless her, and issues dire warnings about the fate of pregnant and nursing women.

There are more than 200 bible verses that specifically belittle and demean women.

Here are just a few:
  • Genesis 2:22 Woman created from Adam’s rib
  • Genesis 3:16 Woman cursed: maternity a sin, marriage a bondage
  • Genesis 19:1–8 Rape virgins instead of male angels
  • Exodus 20:17 Insulting Tenth Commandment
  • Exodus 21:7–11 Unfair rules for female servants, may be sex slaves
  • Exodus 22:18 “Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live”
  • Exodus 38:8 Women may not enter tabernacle they must support
  • Leviticus 12:1–14 Women who have sons are unclean 7 days
  • Leviticus 12:4–7 Women who have daughters are unclean 14 days
  • Leviticus 15:19–23 Menstrual periods are unclean
  • Leviticus 19:20–22 If master has sex with engaged woman, she shall be scourged
  • Numbers 1:2 Poll of people only includes men
  • Numbers 5:13–31 Barbaric adulteress test
  • Numbers 31:16–35 “Virgins” listed as war booty
  • Deuteronomy 21:11–14 Rape manual
  • Deuteronomy 22:5 Abomination for women to wear men’s garments, vice-versa
  • Deuteronomy 22:13–21 Barbaric virgin test
  • Deuteronomy 22:23–24 Woman raped in city, she & her rapist both stoned to death
  • Deuteronomy 22:28–29 Woman must marry her rapist
  • Deuteronomy 24:1 Men can divorce woman for “uncleanness,” not vice-versa
  • Deuteronomy 25:11–12 If woman touches foe’s penis, her hand shall be cut off
  • Judges 11:30-40 Jephthah’s nameless daughter sacrificed
  • Judges 19:22–29 Concubine sacrificed to rapist crowd to save man
  • I Kings 11:1–4 King Solomon had 700 wives & 300 concubines
  • Job 14:1–4 “Who can bring a clean thing out of an unclean? not one . . .”
  • Proverbs 7:9–27 Evil women seduce men, send them to hell
  • Proverbs 11:22 One of numerous Proverbial putdowns: "Like a gold ring in a pig's snout is a beautiful woman who ... ... "
  • Isaiah 3:16–17 God scourges, rapes haughty women
  • Ezekiel 16:45 One of numerous obscene denunciations
  • Matthew 24:19 “[woe] to them that are with child”
  • Luke 2:22 Mary is unclean after birth of Jesus
  • I Corinthians 11:3–15 Man is head of woman; only man in God’s image
  • I Corinthians 14:34–35 Women keep in silence, learn only from husbands
  • Ephesians 5:22–33 “Wives, submit . . .”
  • Colossians 3:18 More “wives submit”
  • I Timothy 2:9 Women adorn selves in shamefacedness
  • 2 Timothy11–14 Women learn in silence in all subjection; Eve was sinful, Adam blameless
Why should women—and the men who honor women—respect and support religions which preach women’s submission, which make women’s subjugation a cornerstone of their theology?

When attempts are made to base laws on the bible, women must beware. 

The constitutional principle of separation between church and state is the only sure barrier standing between women and the bible.
