Daily Wire: Barack Obama, a man who almost single-handedly prevented a woman from becoming president in 2008, recently said that women are “indisputably” better leaders than men. Constructing a utopian vision of an estrogen-filled future, Obama said he was “absolutely confident” that there would be “significant improvement” in all aspects of life “if every nation on earth w[ere] run by women” for even just two years.
He did allow that women “are not perfect,” but he insisted that they’re “better than us,” meaning men. Despite having chosen an old man (and not a woman) as his running mate for both of his presidential campaigns, the former president laid the blame for the state of the world at the feet of “old men” who just refuse to “get out of the way.
Perhaps all that needs to be said in response to this simpering nonsense is “speak for yourself.” If Obama feels like he was an inadequate leader, I’m strongly inclined to agree. But I don’t think his problem was an excess of testosterone. . Read More …
Opinion: What does the Bible have to say?
“And the woman said to the serpent, “We may eat the fruit of the trees of the garden; 3 but of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God has said, ‘You shall not eat it, nor shall you touch it, lest you die.’ ”
4 Then the serpent said to the woman, “You will not surely die. 5 For God knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”
6 So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree desirable to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate …” Genesis 3:2-6

Two chapters into God’s Genesis story of redemption, we find Eve, the first woman, hoodwinked by the serpent. She doesn’t exactly portray us as trustworthy. Since my childhood, I’ve noticed every storybook picture of the fall of mankind placed Eve in the center of the narrative as the one who was easily deceived. Her failures follow her to the New Testament, when Paul used the sin in the Garden to explain why first-century women in Ephesus were not permitted to teach men. Here’s what Paul had to say about it: “I do not allow a woman to teach or to have authority over a man; instead, she is to remain quiet. For Adam was formed first, then Eve. And Adam was not deceived, but the woman was deceived and transgressed” (1 Tim. 2:12–14). Read More …
