2. My husband made a correction to that quote

"Then SHE made the earth round....and laughed and laughed and laughed..."

He's a very wise man.

6. This is obviously not really in the Bible!

Because not a single author of the books of the Bible knew the Earth was spherical.

10. True, but liberal Christians don't take the Holy Bible as the complete, literal, inerrant word of

God anyway. There are very scholarly, devout and feminist-favorable translations and interpretations available. You might legitimately have other objections, but don't worry about fundies. They're our version of the Taliban.

14. The Greeks accepted a spherical earth about 300 B.C.

The whole everyone thought the earth was flat until Columbus is a myth. Though this might not cover early Judaism.

Still funny though.

8. Over time, back in my dating years post-divorce, I learned a few shortcuts to finding out

what a man really thought about feminism. You do know some will lie in hopes of a lay, don't you? Well, referring to the Higher Power as 'she' proved a dead giveaway. Watch for the immediate micro-expression when that first falls on their ears. You'll learn a lot. If it was somebody I didn't think would care one way or another because they might not be the least bit religious, I might smile my sweetest and ask who he liked better, Pig Boy or Gloria Steinhem? Oh, the garden paths I escaped with that ruse. Better not to start down that road in the first place.

but when I did believe I thought that, since we are made in his image, he must be a smart ass. So, this makes me laugh.
