President Jimmy Carter’s book, “A Call To Action”

There is a remarkable video on The Huffington Post yesterday.  In it, President Jimmy Carter is interviewed about his new book, “A Call to Action: Women, Religion, Violence and Power.”  President Carter left the Southern Baptist denomination in 2012, after many decades of membership, when the SBC voted against women holding clergy positions.

“There’s no evidence at all that Jesus Christ did anything except to exalt women. Never has a single word or action been alleged to him that would deprive women from their equal or superior rights.”

Here is the link to the HuffPost video, and be sure to flip through the inspiring album of Powerful Women Religious Figures from Around the World following the Carter interview.
