More words of wisdom from former President Jimmy Carter

Posted on: April 7, 2011

According to an Associated Press article, Jimmy Carter says religious leaders discriminate against women. He claims that much of the discrimination and abuse suffered by women around the world is attributable to a belief “that women are inferior in the eyes of God.” He further said that such teachings by “leaders in Christianity, Islam and other religions” allow men to beat their wives and deny women their fundamental rights as human beings.

Carter made these remarks at a gathering of human rights activists and religious leaders from more than 20 countries in Atlanta. He further said that he doesn’t fault religions for oppressing women, but blames men who selectively interpret the Bible and other scriptures. He then suggested that there should be other and more flexible interpretations.

Wasn’t this the same man who claimed that he “lusted in his heart” after women but never cheated on his wife?

Now I’m no expert but I have seen reports that say the abusive men (and women as well) have come from abusive homes and it may be a learned response by abusers.

As for blaming Christianity for these problems, Mr. Carter should go back and read his Bible or talk to his preacher. Christianity is a very tolerant religion as preached by Jesus Christ. But once again, Mr. Carter has to share his words of wisdom that just doesn’t make sense. He should stick with building homes.

Jimmy Carter was the second worst president of all time. The worst of course is the current one. Carter was an incomeptent panty waist president who sought counsel from his 13 year old daughter and talked about “killer rabbits”.

He was and is a whiny litty wimp of a man, for whom I have no respect.
