Scotties Toy Box

even as a boy in church school I never understood why all our pictures of Jesus showed him as a white guy with straight light brown hair.

  1. Reblogged this on word from the trenches and commented:
    As hard as this was for a boy, for a girl it was much worse. I grew up with an image in my head of god as male. Women, by definition, were one off. We were created to keep a man company. We are from the man. But we grow up thinking of god in male terms and by definition anything male is somehow the norm. So we should strive to be more like men.
    I have officially abandoned that notion.
    Now, to spread the word.

    • Thank you for the reblog, it is very kind of you. I so agree with your comment and I reject anything that says women are not equal and in some cases far better than men in any activity. Here is a life example. A few years ago I had a man tell me no woman could ever best a man in any area or activity and shouldn’t be in charge. I told him that when I was in the navy I met a former navy shorewoman ( navy police woman ) who was working now in the same office I was. She was the first person I know to have a PR-24 police riot baton. I later took a job where I also had to learn how to use that baton, however I will remember to this day how easy that woman took me down, handled me, and had complete control over my actions during practice. I never got the better of her. She was totally amazing. so that is one example of a woman who was better at her skill than a man was. Hugs
