  •  I think one could argue that organized religion, (6+ / 0-)

    especially early Christianity, has done more to prevent women from gaining equality than anything else. Obviously, some religions have come much further than others but, clearly, we still have a long way to go.

    •  C'mon (0+ / 0-)

      As bad as the SBC is here, how does it compare with women being unable to drive in Saudi Arabia, unable to go to school under the Taliban, female circumcision, "honor killings" and much more?

      I'm not praising Christianity here -- I am just suggesting we need a little perspective.
