Former President Jimmy Carter said on June 28 that both Christian and Islamic religious leaders share the blame for mistreating women across the world.
During an international conference on women and religion, Carters examples of religious authorities continuing doctrines of male superiority included the Catholic Churchs practice of banning women from the priesthood and some African cultures mutilation of the genitalia of young girls.
Describing these doctrines as theologically indefensible, Carter said they contribute to an environment in which political leaders passively accept violence against women, sex-trafficking, and inequality in the workplace.
There is a great aversion among men leaders and some women leaders to admit that this is something that exists, that its serious and that its it troubling and should be addressed courageously, Carter said at The Carter Center, the human rights organization he founded in 1982 after he left the White House.
Carters event, called Mobilizing Faith for Women, was attended by representatives from 15 countries. A goal of the conference was to emphasize to world leaders that religious institutions can be forces for equality, Carter said.
The nations participating at the Carter conference included Afghanistan, Botswana, Egypt, Iraq, Malaysia, Nigeria, Senegal, and the Sudan.
Carter said widespread oppression of women is found in both nations dominated by Islam as well as western countries where Christianity is the primary cultural influence.
Referring to St. Paul and his writings, Carter said, Paul said there is no difference between Jews and Gentiles, slaves or masters, man or woman. However, he noted gross abuses of religious texts in the Koran and in the Bible, Old Testament and New Testament. Singular verses can be extracted and extorted to assert the singular dominance of men.
Carter was especially critical of the Roman Catholic Church......

Sometimes, when I look at my children, I say to myself, “Lillian, you should have remained a virgin.”
Nah, I think of Jimmy as that short kid that was always trying to prove himself by doing and saying dumb and outrageous things.
39th President James Earl Carter- the gift that keeps on taking.
Here is the douchebag wearing booties at Three Mile Island. I wonder how badly the gamma rays and neutrons effed him up.
Fairly obvious now that Billy was the brains in that family.

Jimmah passed his date of expiration on the day he was born.
The truth of the matter is that Carter is ticked off because Obama is beating him out as the worst President in the history of the US. His game plan is to do whatever it takes to recapture that title. Try as he might, this despicable individual can never hope to top Obama. However, in the process he is succeeding in reminding the rest of us just how bad a President he really was.
Thanks Jimmy. Keep it up.
I was hoping to stone an adulteress. But I left Mass early so maybe I missed it.
