Carter singled out the Southern Baptist Convention and Roman Catholic Church, claiming that they “view that the Almighty considers women to be inferior to men.” However, both Christian faiths hold to the Scriptural truth that God created men and women equal.
“Their continuing choice provides a foundation or justification for much of the pervasive persecution and abuse of women throughout the world,” said Carter. Carter goes on to list horrific violations against women such as rape, genital mutilation, abortion of female embryos and spousal battery.
Now, I am not currently affiliated with any particular Christian denomination but I have attended plenty of both baptist and catholic services in my life and just like Obama was "absent" when the Rev. Wright was spewing his hateful crap, I must have been sleeping through the sermons that called for genital mutilation.
Carter has completed his short trip Nutsville. Many, many women throughout the globe face horrendous abuse based on the religious affiliation of their abusers. Even mentioning baptists and catholics as "causal" to the rapes, stonings and degradation heaped on women by adherents to the "religion of peace" obscures and excuses the terror that Muslim live with every day of their lives.
It is past time for Carter to shuffle quietly in to the sunset.
