    Huh? Doesn't ring a bell. Granted, it's been a long time since I read any version of the Holy Word according to various sects of Christianity.

    Is that in my old King James? Mom's old Catholic Bible? I'll go dust them off...

      Note: "Christianists" will tell you St. Paul (the former Saul of Tarsus, who persecuted the early church until his "conversion experience") was NOT a misogynist, but a feminist for his time.

      I disagree.
      St. Peter, and Jesus, were kinder to women.

        that's why I blanked on it. Even my Methodist minister responsible for getting us kids thru confirmation studies didn't focus long on Paul's work.
