Jimmy Carter Accuses Catholic Church of Human Rights Abuse for Not Ordaining Women

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.

He’s no longer the worst, but he’s definitely obnoxious.

He used to be a strong voice against abortion.

More theological incontinence from Jimmah the Buffoon, but other Demonrats will no doubt try to throw it into the political fan to their advantage.

Wasn’t his presidency a human rights abuse?

Crazy Jimmy is having more and more ‘Lust in his heart’ as he gets older. He’ll say most anything to get a piece — or was that ‘peace?

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.
