I find that the great majority who attend religious ceremonies, in this case mass, are women. So where are the men? Is it that they are more likely to be spiritual rather than religious? Is it that women are more easily led, so tend to congregate into religion instead of taking the risk of seeking out for themselves? Does inwardquest have more male or female users?
Thank you, namaste

This question reminded me of a chapter in "Conversations with God" by Neale Donald Walsch, allow me to quote.
If you read that, and can acknowledge it, then you could say that women are more "spiritual" then men, however I think the "amount of spirituality" is hardly determined by gender, but more by way of life.

I think religious roles shouldn't be confused with spirituality.
Religious roles and norms are often dictated by culture. Hence, in male-dominated communities, men are naturally seen as the authority figures, and assume such roles in politics, religion and probably in the home. It is the opposite for female-dominated communities (especially long ago, in the old paganistic world where the female with her birthing abilities was seen to hold the power of creation).
All things being equal, without preoccupation with worldly concerns, I think men and women can be just as spiritual.

I discovered something interesting tonight. I have been uploading Abraham audio's to youtube and was looking at the statistics of the viewers. I noticed that countries have quite a difference in male/female viewers.
USA Male 18% female 82% EUROPE Male 45% female 55% SOUTH AMERICA male 84% female 16% MIDDLE EAST male 0% female 100%
I was quite shocked at the differences. Especially to see that South American males far outnumber females and even surprised at the differing ratio between USA and Europe. It didn't show statistics for Australia for some reason and didn't have enough data for Africa or Asia.
It also shows the age ranges of each sex but that's another story.

How interesting! The age range must be equally so! They are most definitely not what one would expect! Thank you, namaste

Good question.MOST spiritual leaders /shamens/revealers of truth /iconic figures have been male.However ive often wondered if the male religious communities have down played their role and thrown aside much of the female teaching.
The bible has very little in the way of female writing.Could it be that the powers that were ( male) left out any writing by women?
My guess is that were spiritually the same sex.

The fact that all humans are born equal, there is no separation in terms of one being more spiritual than the other. We are all spiritual beings, regardless.
In terms of religion I believe that they are more male Preachers, Pastors, and Priest in the Churches than women, although there are more female members in the Church at large. But as you are well aware women were oppressed at one time, and it was a man’s world. Although women have come along ways, and now it is being said that it is a women’s world, but the man is still the head of the family. Also there are always more male figures as world leaders than females!

Women in general - it appears their egos are not as big as mens and their mind is more conected to loving and caring ideas, much the message of Jesus. (if we are talking about a Christian Church here of course).
Nevertheless, at the church I attend there seems to be more men, who actually attend alone too.
