I was actually looking at some bible verses the other day and this isn't really anything that would be out of place in the bible:

1 Corinthians 11:  For a man indeed ought not to cover his head, forasmuch as he is the image and glory of God: but the woman is the glory of the man,   For the man is not of the woman: but the woman of the man. Neither was the man created for the woman; but the woman for the man.

1 Corinthians 14: Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience, as also saith the law.

1 Timothy 3: But I (Apostle Paul) suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence. For Adam was first formed, then Eve

And there is a lot more about modesty, a woman's place in the home etc.. Women are not considered equal to man but one step below man as man are one step below God.

 

This is why you never play the 'which religion is better' game.  All 3 of the Abrahamic religions have passages of violence, hate, subjugation, intolerance, war, contradictions, etc...

Especially with people that have no interest in recognizing it.

 

And even in the thousands of religions that exist it would be hard to find one that is perfectly peacefull.

We humans are flawed and we did write down flawed religions and this is surely true when you consider that most were conceived in times with more turmoil.
