Inquisition: Damning Evidence of Abrahamic Atrocities Towards Women

Austin Cline from atheism.about.com has an excellent picture and accompanying article about the sexual torture used by inquisitors during the witch hunts of the past.

Among other atrocities, the inquisitors used to look for supernatural tits:

Inquisitors were also quick to search for the purported "witches' tits," blemishes which were supposed to be extra nipples used by witches to suckle demons. If the men interrogating the witches were to become aroused, it was assumed that the desire originated not in them, but instead was a projection from the women.


What fun is it for a male authority figure to go through the trouble of torturing and killing a bunch of women if you don't get to fondle some tits and put hot pokers on vaginas in the process?

At least these inquisitors were more preoccupied with adult female sex organs than prepubescent male sex organs. But on the other hand, modern day anally raped altar boys didn’t get burned at the stake after the assault. I can't decide which is worse... I guess they are both equally bad.

The Bible reinforces and legitimizes violence, cruelty, and inhumanity towards women. I've had a number of Christians tell me that only an incorrect interpretation of the Bible allows for this horrible treatment of women.

Bullshit! Next thing you know, we will be hearing Neo-Nazis insisting that Hitler "hijacked" true Naziism through incorrect interpretation.

No true scotsman my friend.

me: "Christian's have committed plenty of violence, look at the crusades, Christian Identity, the Spanish Inquisition, Salem Witch Trials, etc."

Fundy: "Those weren't real Christians"

What the fuck!?!? Ok, to paraphrase Eminem "Can the real True Fundy, please stand up?" Apparently, I've never met a real Christian...

...kinda kills the point of my blog then I guess, lol.

Another great post! You are absolutely correct! The bible is very clear on its treatment of women. It is also clear on its treatment of children and slaves and animals and pagans and non-believers.
