Jimmy Carter: equality is more important than the Baptist convention

…my decision to sever my ties with the Southern Baptist Convention, after six decades, was … an unavoidable decision when the convention’s leaders, quoting a few carefully selected Bible verses and claiming that Eve was created second to Adam and was responsible for original sin, ordained that women must be “subservient” to their husbands and prohibited from serving as deacons, pastors or chaplains in the military service.


That’s former president Jimmy Carter.  Carter has turned out to be an excellent ex-president (one wishes he could have been a faster learner on the job, but …)

I’m guessing that when Jimmy goes to the great beyond to face God, She will forgive him.
