Islamophobia M103 – How religious freedom goes against equal rights and women’s rights

 

 

” Women are treated more equally in some countries that are atheistic or where governments are strictly separated from religion” ~ Jimmy Carter

The three of the biggest world religions, the Abrahamic religions  ( Judaism, Christianity and Islam ) preach of a male god that has given the power to men over women. By these preachings women have become second class citizens the world over. In these teachings it is believed that women are the cause of the original sin, this sin inflicted onto Adam by Eve’s seduction or fall to temptation. And so we see the root of the evil placed onto women, their bodies and their sexuality. Women are constantly being judged by man for his lack of selfcontrol. Religion is and has been a catalyst towards creating culture and culture towards creating traditions. We are a world that traditionally abuses women and girls in the name of religious freedom.

HOW CAN RELIGION BE A HUMAN RIGHT WHEN IT GOES AGAIST HUMAN RIGHTS?

Religious scipture, dogmas, and ideologies go against the human rights towards sexual freedom for mainly women and gays

The Canadian bill M103; if it becomes a law or if it is even entertained as religious bigotry towards questioning religion will set a tradition, a culture, a precedence towards the merger of Govenment and religion and by that the death of freedom of expression. IF RELIGION IS NOT DEBATED TOWARDS REFORMING IT ,  HUMAN RIGHTS WILL BE OBLITERATED FOR RELIGIOUS FREEDOM. If we deny sexual freedom by allowing sexual repression into the government than women’s rights will be turned back 200 years.

Women and men newly immigrated from countries that are dominated by religious extremism will more than likely find it very difficult to let go of their cultural and religious practices based on these religious fundamentalisms.

But my point is this if religion teaches men that they are above women, and religions create culture and traditions that are then settled into a culure to polute it with inequalites;  how then can it be put into to feminism as feminism is about women’s equality?

The answer is; it cannot. Religion without proper reformation and mediation cannot bring us towards becoming a modern civilization. We will keep waring, we will keep repressing each other in the name of the god and the dogma of that god. We will never come to true diversity, we will never experience true social justice, and we will never become a global community that is fair and just under the umbrella of these patriachal religions, that places government and spiritual control in the hands of men by placing women under men.

Right now the Liberal Government is pushing globalization and global citizenship or a world government by the union of councils like The Unitied Nations. The elite did this with the use of a patriachal religions back in 325 AD;  Constantine The Great united the Roman Empire by uniting religions but he gained control over his empire by denying female gods and placing male gods over the people; by placing sexual shame onto women; over half of society, he used men in his empire to oppress women for him. By the oppression of women he gave men a spureriority to repress the women of the empire for him. By repressing and abusing their own women they were actually abusing themselves by the false hierchy over them becoming more and more elite above them by the subterfuge. By the use of religion over the masses the worlds oldest elitist families have been steadily gaining over the average citizen. That is why the bigotry and hate in religion has not been reformed to this date as it is the deceit, deception, guile and cunning from the upper class to keep the lower classes lower by keeping the religious wars going; they steal and cheat from the common people.

IF A ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT AND A ONE WORLD RELIGION WERE TO FORM TODAY UNDER GLOBALIZATIN AND GLOBAL CITIZENSHIP, WOMEN’S RIGHTS WOULD BE DESTROYED BY RELIGION

To this day we are seeing multicultulism being the term used towards breaking down borders and reforming governments towards becoming a one world governmen through the UN to unite the world under one umbrella for the elites to take total control of the masses. We know from history that absolute power corrupts absolutly. With religion still in the bronze age; humanity will revert back towards more barbarism in the name of mass conformity.

In order for true democracy to take up root we must root out the darkness within the scriputres that are deep within all the worlds cultures and deep within us as individuals. We must be able to speak our truths and name our fears so that we can bring humanity and ourselves personally out of the darkness.

 

Justin Trudeau and the Patriarchy

 

Dear Mr. Trudeau the patriarchy is a system of society or government which men hold power and largely exclude women from it. The patriarchy is also religions based on the rule and worship of male gods that exclude female gods. It’s interesting how what we believe governs us from above manifest as governing us on earth. The worlds first spiritual or religious practices were governed by both female and male gods. The seat of religion, historically is the Middle East; this is were the three most powerful worlds religions were formed and of course were there is the highest concentration of war and violence today due to these religious beliefs or dogmas. But before Roman Times ; Gaia was believed to have been the first God or Goddess to have given birth to the cosmos and all of it’s creations. When the Middle East and Rome began to grow and expand it’s empire through war, Zues the god of war began to take over the belief systems of mankind. With the belief of all male gods men on earth began to use violence against women and their children to enslave them into being property vs being equals. We see that to this date in dogmatic beliefs that make women sex and sexuality evil, tempting, seducing and distracting towards causing men to rape them, beat them and or miss treat them. Women today in our western and eastern cultures are blamed and abandoned by a male based society that vitimizes them and then chastizes them for being victims.

To this very day men of power like yourself use women issue;s like feminism as a means of self promotion to then further control women by promoting patriarchal religions like Islam, Christianity and Judaism ( just to name the three most powerful ) as being pro- feminism or pro- diversity when in fact, the fact of their specific and fundamentalistic dogmas, these dogmas written into their scriptures as a belief system; these religions and others like them are anti-woman, anti- gay and full of hate speech – is a speech which attacks a person or group on the attributes such as race, religion, ethinic origin, sexual orientation, disablity or gender – yet you have termed the phrase Islamaphobia as a potentially hate speech to label those who appose it’s sexism or misogyny, or terrorist attacks done in it’s name as racist. What you are attempting to do is to silence freedom of speech, freedom of thought and to disolve democracy – a system of government by the whole population – there is a reason why government and religion must remain separate. Clearly government and religion must remain separate because the dogmas in religion cause hate and division by causing inequality. That inequality obviously all ready existis in this so called modern society that isn’t really modern or evolved. Women have yet to see equal pay for equal work, the law has yet to be equal or fair to women as sexism and sexual harassment exist deeply within our judicial sytems. You have yet to address in depth the sexist judges, police and courts who still further victimize women and girls for being victims of men. Yet you use your time in power to further relgion that is sexist, enslaving and violent towards women and children.

Canada is still a country that doesn’t support it’s women in children with far wages, child care and programs that help average families with, health and education so that women, children can flourish, and so that all of Canadian’s can experience a greater quality of life. It seems to many of us that you are more concerned with your own social, global profile towards other world elites than you are concerned about the health and safety of every Canadian citizen. This isn’t a populatity contest this is real life. Most Canadian’s were not born to privilege like you and it seems that you have never understood that you are not a King you are a Prime Minister of Canada, this means that you work for the people. It seems you need to be reminded of the fact that our tax dollars pay your wages and that accepting gifts of vacations from your filthy rich elitist Muslim friends ( Who of course is a man ) has erroded the people’s confidence in you. You have not put all of our interests into perspective but simply a select few whom you can use to further your own political goals and strategies. Going by the history above it is easy to reason that your goals along with the other powerful men of the world is to keep the power over women;  by confusing them into believing that patriarchial based relgions support feminism by having women internalize misgyny by being brainwashed and slut shamed by their dogmas. Having women believe that they are responsible for enticing men by exposing their bodies or expressing their sexuality is misogyny. It starts in the school system by sending young girls home for wearing shoulder bareing dresses; saying they distract the boys while teaching them that they cannot be distracted by male sexuality. These are double standards and they are inequalities; this is sexism. The government or system is teaching boys that they are not responsible for restraining themselves but that girls and women are responsible for being sexualy harassed by what they are wearing or doing. The system is not teaching men and boys not to rape but is teaching women and girls how not to be raped; this then leads to victim blaming that we see in the relgious and court systems when women and girls are raped or abused.

Religion isn’t spirituality. Spirituality is truely diverse as it doesn’t judge or condemn by dogmas as everyone has a right to believe in what they like as long as it doesn’t infringe on the personal rights and freedoms of others. Religion doesn’t allow freedom to those who don’t follow it’s dogmas; those dogmas are to condemn and to cause physical harm to others who wish to be free of them. Religious freedom is an oxymoron as it doesn’t allow freedoms to those who do not follow it or even to those who do. Religion hates women as it condemns them for their wombs blood and sexual pleasure.

If you were a true feminist like you profess to be you would not be promoting religion over women’s rights or gay rights.

The only thing that you should be speaking out about is that everyone deserves not to be terrorized by religion or for their beliefs but also no one should be able to use their religion to take away the fundamental rights of others. People do have a right to speak out and to protect themselves from anyone or group that wishes to take their rights and freedoms from them in the name of their relgion or god.

If you really want diversity than how about we include some female gods in the state holidays. On my calendar I only see holidays that pertain to male gods and male worship. But that might just be too feminist for you?

Anti Abortion Protests in Kelowna BC Canada

This happened on Wednesday morning May 20th 2015.. it’s taken me a few days to calm down so that I can write this post as objectively as possible.

I was driving my kids to school; driving past Mission Park in Kelowna..down Springfield Rd.. we saw bright colors along the hillside. At first my kids and I thought they had turned the hillside into a huge garden bed of flowers; but upon approaching we saw the anti abortion signs and that the flowers were bright blue and pink landscape flags. I must say I was instantly livid!..and I can pinpoint exactly why now. Because pro choice gives women and men the choice to continue a pregnancy or not.. it gives choice and non judgement. Pro choice doesn’t attempt the owner ship of women’s bodies or both men and women’s lives. Pro Life attempts to take away the rights and freedoms of others by painting all abortions with the same brush of brightly colored shame. To me all of those flags were a guilt trip! All of those flags dipped in the manipulative poison of shame. Each of those flags represents the ownership of the womb; they tag women as incubators for the seed of the patriarchy.

What really pisses me off the most is that these anti abortionist; pro lifers .. were given a permit from the city to use a public park..along a very busy road .. using freedom of speech and freedom to protest to attempt to take freedom away from women and men who, for varied reason have chosen not to take a pregnancy to full term.. how is it that shaming people who practice their rights to choice isn’t considered hate speech? I think it is because the Government is steep in religious dogma..that it has been absorbed into the constitution if the constitution is even at all relevant at times like these.. and so my rage; my anger .. was the response of protecting freedom.. and such is the effect of passion.and my passion for women’s rights, equality and freedom.. yes this makes me an emotional girl.

I knew upon passing this display of self righteous hypocrisy that I would be taking a stand .. as I dropped my children off at school I was chomping at the bit to confront those who attempted through guilt and shame to take way the rights and freedoms of others.. and so I did.

Dressed for the gym.. I walked up the slope of the park to address a man sitting smugly in a lawn chair.. he was about 65. I asked him what the protest was about; he told me that each of the flags represented a boy or girl that was aborted. I asked him ” Were are the rainbow flags for all of the gay children then? You know they are born gay right?” He then asked me if I believed in hell.. my response was ” hell is here right now and you are creating it.” He told me they had a right to protest..and then I told him I have a right to protest your protest by picking up the garbage that you have all over this public park. I then began pulling out flags. I was yelled at of course. I was asked ” Don’t you believe in God?” I was told ” You are a baby killer !!” ( I myself haven’t had to have an abortion..but I just might need to one day ..if I am raped..or my daughters and your daughters might need to one day too) Then soon I found myself surrounded. I was preached at; my hair was pulled. They tried to untie my runners. They tried to pull the flags from my arms..but I kept pulling them up.. the posts were steel..they were getting heavy.. they said ” You have quite a few now..they must be getting heavy.. why don’t you just put them down..give them to us..they are our property.. you are taking our property ..we are calling the police now!!” I told them ” It is a good thing I lift heavy weights then.. I was just on my way to the gym..I go 5 days a week. I am not taking your property off this property so I am not stealing anything. When I am done cleaning up your guilt trip I will give them back to you. Call the police.. my name is Gracie Ackerman.” I was glad they were calling the cops. I wanted to get my point across, strong and clearly. The men were so arrogant and manipulative. They told me they were just trying to stop all the baby girl abortions in China.. they told me that was male control.. not what they were doing in the name of God.. then they told me this was non religious.. then in the next sentence they were condemning me and judging me a evil and a sinner. One woman who had an abortion.. who obviously regretted it; was sure I had, had one too.. she said ” She is obviously wounded from her abortion” I said ” Obviously you are..but you have no right to think that other women will share your feelings should they chose to abort.”

One man in his 50s droned on and on.. with his own personal dogma..saying the same thing over and over again..it was so ultra creepy.. He stood toe to toe with me as I bent over and kept picking up the flags.. saying ” That was another baby you just killed.. that flag was a boy..now you just killed a girl..” then he went on and on and on about the baby girls in China .. his eyes would glaze over as if he took comfort and got a high from his own internal dogma spewing out of his mouth..finally I just couldn’t take him anymore and I said ” Do I look like your subservient good Christian wife? Do I look like that stunned bitch over there that is in a constant guilt trip in her own head over her choice to abort? Do I look like I empower the patriarchy by giving you my submission and my mind? Fucking shut the fuck up! You fucking arrogant ignorant boy man! Go tell you wife this shit.. You represent women’s imprisonment! You fucking make me sick! You are the type of man in the church that would rape a young girl.. then blame her for dressing the wrong way inciting her own rape.. look at how these women dress here.. like sickening gray zombies.. no make up .. no skin showing.. they are servants to men.. do I look like the fucking type that is going to believe your manipulations and dogma bullshit.. shut the fuck up!” I was thinking ” Were the fuck are the cops! I want to make my stand..get the point across for all women who are to afraid to do this..because I am not afraid..but hurry up cops!”

So next the sang Amazing Grace..because they thought it funny and ironic that my name is Grace.. So I sang it will them.. my voice shaking in anger.. and I corrected them when they got the lyrics wrong..idiots! And that is right I am Amazing Grace.. because what I did was for the love of equality and freedom.. for everyone that is here on this planet with me and everyone who will walk after me..

Finally the cops showed up.. I motioned for him to walk up the slope.. He had to give me shit..that’s his job. I understood that. I had to drop the flags were I stood..because legally they were not my property. Yes they got a permit to protest from the parks board.. ( way to go Government and religion mixing ) .. that equals inequality..

But after the cop gave me shit.. I told him ” I am proud of myself and what I did. I write about women’s rights and equality…sexual repression through religion..I respect the fact that you are a cop.. your job is intense.. but I hope you can see that we both stand for the same thing and that is justice.. I didn’t just write about it..I just walked my talk.. I think I took a stand today for many people.” We then shook hands..and I got in my car.. and I went to the gym and worked it all out in sweat.. mission was accomplished.

I learned that they had a right to put their hands on me for pulling up there flags.. imaging that? Some thing is really wrong with that..

But imagine if this does set hard and fast into our Government.. and women become less than people because the potential life inside of them becomes more important than the proven viable life carrying the the potential.. if that happens humanity is damned to fall into ashes.
