Religion causes sexism.

Not all religion and not all religious people are bad. But sexism is always shit.

They're the same thing.

They are usually one and the same..most religions are patriarchal institutions to enforce male dominance, although a few indigenous religions had/have female gods and gender equality.

True, Gloria Steinem wrote a book called Revolution from within. That was a very insightful book. In the book she points out that All characteristics that males more naturally exhibit are deemed as having more value than the typically feminine characteristics. I don't think this is a product of religion as much as Society. Religion definitely plays its role in sexism however.

Most religious organisations are breeders of sexism and a range of other -isms

It's pretty 50/50 with choices up there. You can't have one without the other. That's one of the reasons the world is so screwed up.

Religion fuels sexism.

The religious talk out of both corners of their mouth. Jesus is said to be a prominent figure for the Christians. Jesus can't really be described as an aggressive, angry, selfish, greedy ,pussy grabbing, highly competitive macho man -most men aren't either- females typically possess the characteristics that are most likely to describe Jesus, but Christianity bashes the female and lowers her to the level of chattel.

The foundation of everything evil is based from religion.

religion. It tries to justify sexism racism slavery child abuse & many other evils because "god" has commanded it. Thus there is no way to argue the point. All the monotheistic religions do this, as well as many multitheistic ones.

This is a logical fallacy, comparing two unlike issues.

Sexism is many times a result of religion. Some religions.

Sexism can be dealt with one on one -religion can't as its a congregation of people.

You can't rank two equally terrible things. That's like asking if the crusades were better than the nazis

A few highlightst from Evilbible.com [evilbible.com]

Exodus 21:3-4 Says that if a male slave is given a wife by his master (regardless of how long they are wed, how much they love each other or if they have kids) he can not leave servanthood with his wife or children. The woman and children are merely property of the master and their personal happiness or sanctity of family doesn’t matter.

Genesis 3:16 Says that all women must suffer great pains during child birth due to Eve eating the fruit of knowledge.

Genesis 19:8 Tells of a man named Lot who offers his daughters to a crowd of would be angel rapers. Later, Lot impregnates his own daughters after God kills his wife for simply looking back at the remains of her city.

Leviticus 12:1-8 Explains that a woman has to be purified after giving birth because she is “unclean”. It goes on to say that birthing a male is cleaner then birthing a female, hence a mother must purify TWICE as long when having a daughter. This is BLATANT sexism from the point of birth. A woman is dirty simply for being a woman; this is obviously very biased and chauvinistic.

Leviticus 27:3-7 God places a dollar value on human life; with women worth less than men.

Numbers 30:3-16 A woman can’t make a vow unless her husband allows it.

Deuteronomy 25:11-12 Says that we must cut off a woman’s hand if she touches the “secrets” of a man who is fighting with her husband…“And thine eye shall not pity her.” Once again, there is no punishment for the man she touched, only the woman.

Let's not forget Islam - -

[wikiislam.net]

Yusuf Ali translation: Men are the protectors and maintainers of women, because Allah has given the one more (strength) than the other, and because they support them from their means. Therefore the righteous women are devoutly obedient, and guard in (the husband's) absence what Allah would have them guard. As to those women on whose part ye fear disloyalty and ill-conduct, admonish them (first), (Next), refuse to share their beds, (And last) beat them (lightly); but if they return to obedience, seek not against them Means (of annoyance): For Allah is Most High, great (above you all).

How can sexism be worse then this?
