An Apology to Women

December 02, 2005

The archbishop of Wales recently apologized for how the church had "denigrated women and treated them as second-class citizens." BBC NEWS | UK | Wales | 'Church denigrated women' apology He said:

"Let me as an Archbishop admit that Christians throughout the ages have denigrated women and often used the Bible to do so - and let me apologise for that."

"Little wonder then that violence has been committed against them when you can back it up with religious justification."

"It has to be realized that the Bible was written in patriarchal times and that colours the way women were regarded."


He also said that everyone of faith needed to join in "making a difference" to stop this treatment. In light of that I would like to apologize to women on behalf of Baptists for Russell Moore!
