Haiku #168

Men leaving in droves
their far too feminine churches -
too much love and compassion

That's the question: Where are the men in the world?? Just about everything I do women outnumber men at least 2 to 1.

Here's a haiku back:

Watching TV sports
Pretending they're not depressed
Men in 2010.

Gwei Mui said...

Where do the men all go to?

Ronda Laveen said...

So, at church, there should be hate and lack of concern? And they say women can't make up their mind.

Male priests and female congregations. An odd combination.

Obviously, they drive away....

Kass said...

Why do we equate spirituality with femininity?

It's service training,
a hangover from the war
instilled into the male population
"Never volunteer for anything!"

Gwei
Secret - I'd be ex-communicated from the male gender, if I were to tell that.

Ronda
It's the love thing, they say. Too feminine - but love wouldn't fit in the haiku like it doesn't fit the male image thingy.

Madame deFarge
Maybe it's the prospect of female priests that driving them away!

ArtistUnplugged
Yup, they drive away when they're driven away - they'd say.

Kass
Back to the love thingy - can't be letting their mates know they buy that!

Hellfire and brimstone is what's needed, Dave!

Right on. Men have not been able to get over the fact that women have rights and especially in churches men have ruled for such a long time. Maybe some day there will be churches that show equal responsibility and equal respect for both men and women.

Only if where the men went wasn't a secret. Smiles...

I guess that's why all of the spiritual godly rock stars, like jesus, and Buddha and krishna , mohamhed and moses ...have been male- sort of to let men know that they are indeed superior on every realm- men can ride that train and don't have to grovel in man made churches- men are already there- god is a big angry man in the sky- everyone knows that!
