Quote of theweek: Donald Kaul

June 30, 2008

From a column on sexism and the Hillary Clinton campaign:

“I blame religion. Religion is the great machine societies have for passing on values and one of the chief values religions pass on is that women are second-class citizens, useful in their way but not to be entrusted with leadership. And the more orthodox the religion, the more likely to be hostile to the idea that women are the equals of men.”
Donald Kaul, The American Way

    Religion is completely man-made, and I do mean this term in gender-specific way. Nothing good ever comes of it, nothing good ever will come from it. It is and always has been pure, utter, thoroughgoing fraud.

    Well, as damaged as I have been by mainstream religion, it is at least a bit comforting to know a few people who, while practicing their beliefs transcended sexism, racism and other prejudices.

    It’s interesting, though, that the “most Christian”  Christians I know are very Buddhist.

    Interesting … the authentication text required for me to post this is “love”.  all you need is ….
