Jimmy Carter Accuses Catholic Church of Human Rights Abuse for Not Ordaining Women
Gateway Pundit ^ | June 23, 2013 | Jim Hoft

Posted on 06/23/2013 8:51:29 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

In an interview today with Swampland Jimmy Carter, the second worst president in US history, said the failure of the Catholic Church to ordain women was human rights abuse. He also compared the Catholic Church to Islam. and Acts of Apostasy reported, via Free Republic:

It’s not news when irrelevant people spout irrational opinions, because it happens nearly all the time, but hey – it’s been a slow day.

From Swampland:

Let’s get right to it. This week the Carter Center’s Mobilizing Faith for Women conference will ask the question, “Can religion be a force for women’s rights instead of a source of women’s oppression?” What’s your answer?

Well, religion can be, and I think there’s a slow, very slow, move around the world to give women equal rights in the eyes of God. What has been the case for many centuries is that the great religions, the major religions, have discriminated against women in a very abusive fashion and set an example for the rest of society to treat women as secondary citizens. In a marriage or in the workplace or wherever, they are discriminated against. And I think the great religions have set the example for that, by ordaining, in effect, that women are not equal to men in the eyes of God.

This has been done and still is done by the Catholic Church ever since the third century.....

If Jimmy Carter played Major League baseball, he’d be the captain of the 1962 Mets.

If he’s not the worst President of all times, he is the most obnoxious.

Then Chico Escuela would have written about him instead of Ed Kranepool.

I am anxiously sitting here awaiting those practicing Liberal Catholics, Pelosi, Biden and their minions to come out and put J Carter in his place.

He has a ‘cross hair’ up his arse that is bothering him because he knows his place in history will be lost forever when the present occupier of the White House is escorted out of town, hopefully on a rail, in cuffs.

“As you may or may not know, the Southern Baptist Convention back now about 13 years ago in Orlando, voted that women were inferior....”

Sure they did. Right. That’s what it was, for sure. Yeah.

“This has been done and still is done by the Catholic Church ever since the third century, when the Catholic Church ordained that a woman cannot be a priest for instance but a man can.”

I wonder what he thinks this gibberish means.

There is a certain advantage in not feeling constrained to think about anything beyond your own experiences and predilections when you speak. The drawback, of course, is that you only resonate with the similarly self-absorbed.

This is about abortion. The Democrats need to destroy the Church because it is the single largest opponent of the unjust mass killing of early stage innocent humans. The urgency becomes greater as science and imaging increasingly reveal the obvious humanity of the unborn. Obama is leading the way with his HHS and IRS as the instruments of persecution. Just last week Obama said that Catholic education is divisive. Jimmy is about as irrelevant as one can get. He just wants to pile on to get attention. He pretends to be a Baptist but is as big a baby killer as any of the other Democrats.

...move around the world to give women equal rights in the eyes of God

Women already have equal rights in the eyes of God. God made us male and female for a reason. Difference among genders isn't inequality among genders, though some will claim such for political purposes.

Actually Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton formed their own Baptist labelled religious group (New Baptist Covenant) a few years after Carter renounced and left the Southern Baptists.

"In October 2000, Carter again made headlines with his widely-publicized decision to leave the Southern Baptist Convention. Carter sent out over 75,000 letters to Southern Baptist churches nationwide explaining his decision."

"In April 2006, Carter, former-President Bill Clinton and Mercer University President Bill Underwood initiated the New Baptist Covenant."

I accuse that maggot Carter of human rights abuse by failing miserably to discharge his responsibilities as POTUS and failing to respond to the taking of our Embassy staff by the Islamists working under the orders of the Ayatollah Khomeini.

I'm at a loss as to how this outrage of over thirty years ago differs from the outrage that occurred in Benghazi nine months ago.

And he calls the Catholic Church out for not ordaining women?

How about calling out the so-called "Religion of Peace" out for fourteen centuries of abuse of women?

Female circumcision, "honor" killings, executions of rape victims who couldn't find four male witnesses to support their complaint?

And the Republicans are accused of waging a war against women?

We're surely in 1984. Interesting that in calendar year 1984 we were basking in the sunshine of the Reagan Administration.

One of President Reagan's earliest acts was to allow the maggot Carter to go to Iran and join the freed hostages on their way home.

Have any of the Leftists who have come into power lately extended that kind of courtesy? Hell no! Five years into the benighted Obama Regime, all they can do is blame Bush!

It may seem to some to have gotten off topic, but to bring it back home, Obama had the unmitigated to stand on Irish soil and blame Catholic education for "divisiveness" in Northern Ireland.

He needs education on what happened in Ireland through seven heroic centuries. There were not only crossroad dancers, there were Shanachies and Hedgerow priests who kept the ancient lore, traditions, and Religion brought to us by Saint Patrick, fostered by Saint Colm Cille, and preserved for us and all by a host of anonymous Irish monks in cold, inhospitable scriptoria in the British Isles and throughout Europe in the First Millennium.

This is the Tradition that was given to us, the Tradition that our Fathers fought for, and which we now must defend. This is the the Truth that was taught to me by selfless nuns dedicated to nothing but the Truth of God.

It is not just the "Catholic" Tradition of which I speak, it is the Christian Tradition that we all uphold - Catholic or Protestant.

It is under attack now as it has been for 14 centuries. And the secularists in our society are in lock-step with the Islamists. They have no clue of what awaits them.

I care not what others may say - I will die as I have lived - a Disciple of Christ and a proud citizen of the United States of America. And to Hell with the Carters, Kerrys and other traitors who seek to bring us down. i am old and weak, bit mu blood still runs strong, my blade is sharp, and my powder is dry.

Here I am and here I stay!

Yep. I was changing channels earlier tonight when i came across a show about Jim Jones. The MC said he had denied Jesus existed and claimed that name for himself. I knew JJ was off his rocker but had no idea about that claim. How can people be taken in by someone like him? I just do not understand.

"How can people be taken in by someone like him? I just do not understand"

Because it's easier to let someone else do the thinking and just sit back and be told what to believe.When certain men insert themselves between that which "is a discerner of the thoughts and INTENTS of the heart" (a heart which we do not fully know and is deceitfull ABOVE ALL things and desperately wicked!)and those coming to God with their truck load of baggage then bad things can happen.When we take up the Sword of the Spirit the first person it slays is the bearer!The deceitfull (above all things) and wicked human heart knows this and would rather a steady diet of carnal commands.Where itself can remain in control,judging and weighing things the same way it always has,better that than death.

Jesus said believing was WORK.

Guess I learned to think for myself from all the reading I have done since learning how to. I learned to decide for myself what was right and wrong. Grew up going to church 3 times a week. When I was in 5th grade, we could memorize verses or chapters of the Bible. If we did so many, we got a Bible. In high school, the students led a devotional and said a prayer. People today do not read like I did, so they hae no idea what is true and what isn’t. They just take the word of some character on a power kick. Is that why there are dems? It seems they have no idea of how to decide the truth. They want to be spoon fed. Am I making any sense? It is 4 here.

Jimmah rose from obscurity to fame, and fell back to obscurity in four years. He fell so fast because he was a senile old fool. He is even more of a senile old fool now. The Catholic church has been prominent in the world for two millennia. Whom do you want to believe, Jimmah, or the Pope?

"Carter's Baptists". Is that a new denomination?

I only ask because none of the Baptists I know best and respect (my dear in-laws) are "Carter's Baptists".

You’re making plenty of sense.

“Faith cometh by hearing” so whatever you’re hearing the most you’ll trust the most.It’s why propaganda works.

It amazes me as well that people seem to be happy to be spoon fed rather than buy that field and get to digging.

It was when I started reading the Bible I started to question everything AND everyone.In particular the numbskull in the mirror!

‘Belonging’ seems to be a powerfull motivator amongst humans but it also shows our ‘un-wholeness’ for ourselves and all to see.No doubt satan plays this to great advantage over people.Killing,stealing and destroying that which someone else deemed precious enough to lay down His very life for!
