Beryl, it's not the gods who hate women. It's men who made up gods to hate women. It's all about the sugar. The guys want sugar and it's the easiest way to get it, scare the hell out of people and convince them gods hate women and wish them oppressed.
Are there any gods who actually don't HATE WOMEN
Isn't Kali where the Stones tongue logo came from? I should know that!! LOL
Kuan Yin is a LOVELY goddess.
Quan Yin is one of the most universally beloved of deities in the Buddhist tradition. Also known as Kuan Yin, Quan'Am (Vietnam), Kannon (Japan), and Kanin (Bali), She is the embodiment of compassionate loving kindness. As the Bodhisattva of Compassion, She hears the cries of all beings. Quan Yin enjoys a strong resonance with the Christian Mary, the Mother of Jesus, and the Tibetan goddess Tara.
In many images She is depicted carrying the pearls of illumination. Often Quan Yin is shown pouring a stream of healing water, the "Water of Life," from a small vase. With this water devotees and all living things are blessed with physical and spiritual peace. She holds a sheaf of ripe rice or a bowl of rice seed as a metaphor for fertility and sustenance. The dragon, an ancient symbol for high spirituality, wisdom, strength, and divine powers of transformation, is a common motif found in combination with the Goddess of Mercy.
