    from what perspective are you coming from?

    First, I haven't watched the show...nor heard the commercials.

    if you attack the show from man's perspective--traditional values--you could defend any conclusion you reach: i.e. there are groups continuously trying to get the bible banned from libraries across the country...as pornography, and shouldn't be viewed, or read, by children. from that perspective, if you've decided that Christianity is sexist, you could defend that point based on the writings in the bible...and how you interpret them.

    if you view the show from the Creator's perspective--spiritual values--you could recognize that God put in place a system of order, in which everything, and everyone, has its place...and its purpose. "...Man is the head of the house...just as Jesus is head of the Church..." is an extension of that system. In accepting God, you accept that system. In denouncing God, you reject that system. it's called faith...in believing that God knows all...and put that system in place for the benefit of ALL His people.

    i'm not here to debate the right or wrong of it; your belief system is your own and i'm not trying to convert you to mine. i'm only saying that, if God is our Creator--as i believe--and He outlined a system for us to follow--as i believe--our faith will urge us to follow his dictates. is that sexist?

    if you build (create) a computer, and write a programming system on which it operates, is that system sexist because you created the male character, in one of your programs, as the dominant character, versus the female character? if someone accused you of being sexist, would you change the whole program to satisfy them...when you were satisfied with your accomplishment before they criticized your work? at what point would you say, "These are the laws that define my creation." and...if they don't like it, they should create their own.

    Satan came into existence because he placed himself in opposition to God's creation. Should God have bowed to Satan's will?

    God laid out the game plan for His creation. Do you, or do you not, agree that He had the RIGHT to do that...with His creation?
