I think we need to quit whining. Out of many churches, the Catholic Church actually puts women on a pedestal. They are treasured and cherished. I personally think that God made it so only men could be priests so he could throw them a bone seeing as how women are more physically beautiful, maternally beautiful and so beautifully complex. He had to give them SOMETHING. ...just my opinion, no body go after me
All right, but I think you're wrong

But I frankly think that if you just take the Biblical passages at face value, the Bible itself doesn't
That's why you don't always take the Bible at face value. Many Christian denominations have the problem of taking the Bible 100 % literal. I remember on facebook being in a Bible group when a female quoted Scripture and a guy came on telling her to be silent. That is not how Catholics interpret it. We have more resources for our faith than just the Bible alone at face value precisely because of problems like these.

"Share" is the key word.

Sure, they "share" power, but in different ways.

Congress or the Supreme Court can't send in the Seals to kill Obama or rescue hostages. Only the President can.
In a real sense the President has all the power, and the other two branches can only block him after-the-fact if the President really wants to do something.

Are you saying that a husband is (or should be) like a U.S. President when to comes to authority over his wife?

Compared to many much more autocratic regimes (such as Russia's or Cuba's) yes.

The nations of the world struggle violently against one another for control of the globe at the expense of their people: Would you model a family in their image?

I would humbly suggest that modern Americans have no idea of the nature of feminism because the Communist influence co-opted this pro-life movement. Susan B. Anthony, along with the American Medical Association, had abortion outlawed as destructive to the health and well-being of women. The endless columns of newspaper ads offering abortion to women reflected the widespread practice that ceased overnight. After voting rights for women were attained came pursuing equity in salaries and civil rights.

Wealthy New York Communist and husband-beater, Betty Freidan, inserted herself into this milieu to co-opt the grass-roots feminist movement. Freidan was aided and abetted by Gloria Steinem, who had made a pilgrimage to Communist Russia and returned with financing for the nominally feminist MS Magazine that was underwritten by the sex trade, including the Playboy Foundation; and Planned Parenthood. College-based feminists seeking salary equity and civil rights openly commented at the time on Gloria Steinem's strange ascent and sought answers as to who she was and where she had come from, unaware of her ties to Communist Russia.

In May 2010, Sarah Palin addressed the conservative Republican-based Susan B. Anthony List, a pro-life lobbying group. Sarah Palin said the Susan B. Anthony List was "returning the women's movement back to its original roots" and voiced her hope of creating a new "conservative feminist identity." Compare this with the Communist-rooted Progressives and the homosexual hit-woman who bullied the American Medical Association into submission. The AMA had declared the tissue harvesting technique of so-called Partial Birth Abortion as a procedure inherently dangerous to the female patient and thus NOT a therapeutic abortion technique. Obama administration's Elena Kagan bullied the AMA into changing the status of Partial Birth Abortion to magically make it a therapeutic abortion technique--all in harmony with the Democratic party platform. This is not an aberration behind which Catholics can hide.

So maneuvering a large, late-term, ready-to-be-born baby around in the womb to induce a feet-first breach birth, a procedure with no medical necessity and one which always risks perforating the uterus, is now a therapeutic abortion technique. Elena Kagan has become a made woman, a Supreme Court Justice, rewarded for her Big Lie. Sarah Palin has been marginalized by relentless media mockery. May the humble Quaker, Susan B. Anthony, pray to God to unleash His vengeance on this bloody travesty and elevate Woman & Seed in His divine plan of crushing and conquering Satan, the "Father of Lies and Murder," and his seed.

Real feminism was and is authorized and empowered in Genesis 3:15. "I (God) will put enmity between you (Satan) and the woman (fulfilled in the Blessed Virgin Mary and all women "among" whom she is blessed); between your seed and her seed (collective term best defined as Jesus and the Body of Christ); and s/he (gender indefinite) will crush your head; and you will lie in wait for her/his heel." May the Immaculate Heart of Mary and the Sacred Heart of Jesus now triumph.

Feminism became popular and political, and took its real roots, under the heavy funding of the Rockefeller family. One member of the family admitted that there were two primary reasons they were funding feminist activities. 1) To get both of a couple working and thus increase the tax base, and 2) to give government greater access to children to "educate" them "properly."
