This isn't an attack on Christians or anything, I think Christians can be great people just like anyone else, and I'm not trying to challenge your faith, but why doesn't any Christian female pay attention to the fact that in the Bible (and up until the 1980's) women were treated as property of their... show more This isn't an attack on Christians or anything, I think Christians can be great people just like anyone else, and I'm not trying to challenge your faith, but why doesn't any Christian female pay attention to the fact that in the Bible (and up until the 1980's) women were treated as property of their husbands??

In the time the Bible was written women were literally seen as property of our husbands, but now that we live in a more advanced society where women and men are socially seen to have equal class why doesn't anyone notice this?
