    hat tipping and rising when a woman leaves the table or enters a room......WT52 April 15 QFR

    I dare say satan's ways are as mysterious as god's. (i now have to wonder if letting a woman on or off the elevator first is part of Satan's schemes)

    "To refrain from tipping the hat to a woman does not mean one disrespects her. Frequently it is the ones who are excessively courteous and gallant to women who show the least respect for womanhood. They use these flattering gestures and forms of outward courtesy hypocritically, as an opening wedge for improper advances that ultimately show disrespect and lead to misuse of women. It is not good to flatter people, to turn their head; it is to their harm. Specifically, why would a woman want this special show of respect from a man? One woman said in response to this question: “You don’t know how important it makes a woman feel to have a man tip his hat to her.” That is sufficient reason for Christians to refrain from the custom. It is not in the interests of the individual to make him feel important, whether the individual is male or female.

    Some might argue that the friendly nod of the head came from the practice of bowing—but the nod is given regardless of sex, by both men and women. It does not exalt the woman. If hat-tipping were done by both men and women to each other, as mutual greeting and show of respect for each other, at least it would not be exalting one above the other. When a customary show of respect is performed between men as well as between man and woman, when it does not set the woman apart for special honor because of her sex, then it does not seem Scripturally objectionable. Hat removal would be too inconvenient for the woman? Then why is it the man that is supposed to rise when a woman enters a room or comes to or leaves the table, and never the woman? Is it too inconvenient again? Is she pinned to the chair, as the hat is pinned to her head? What custom does exist whereby women show respect to men? The absence of any is not just by chance, but is by satanic design to untheocratically elevate the woman above the man. In many ways Satan has taken the woman from the position assigned her by God, taken her from the home and its duties and put her into politics and commerce and religious leadership, and thereby caused much of the modern breakdown on the family front.—Heb. 13:4; Rev. 2:20.

    The GB or Presidents of the WTS. have always insisted that woman must take a lower status of servitude toward men in regards to

    womans place in society. Very much carbon copying how women were regarded and treated back in ancient times.

    God himself is deemed to be a man so and it continues on from there.

    As far as this person who wrote this article goes woman should only be at home waiting on their husbands hand and foot

    to serve their higher ranking men and no where else. Funny how the WTS writers always use its Satanic when ever they didn't

    like something or they wanted to press the controlling button over people.

    The stupid babbling thats there in this shows what kind of idiocy that came and still comes out of the WTS.
