Quoting St Paul For His Own Purposes?

No, not the devil.

Himself just told me that in one of his epistles, St Paul says, Women, remember - your husband is the boss o' you.

And that, boys and girls, is how domestic violence occurs.

Geri, if I'm not mistaken that was a photo of Carrie Nation, stern prohibitionist and to Catholics an outright terrorist. Would you please substitute a photo of a true domestic terrorist, like Lizzie Borden or Hillary Clinton, please? Thank you. Someone has to pay attention.

Was she anti-Catholic? I had no idea! I shall change it forthwith.

Well, I only implied Mrs. Nation as a prime mover towards prohibition of all types of alcoholic distillation. I've have no clue as to whether she was an anti-papist in reality. But one can imagine not a few Irish thinking calumny as she axed a barrel of whiskey, or ze Francaise y Italieni a barrel of red.
