Religion’s Role In The Discrimination Of Women

Religion lies about women, an astute, thoughtful essay about religion’s influence on gender discrimination.

[Religion] has got away for so long with the kind of lunatic word-games that allow death-by-torture to be presented as an act of love, and eternal torment in the flames of hell to be seen as a necessary act of justice, that we should perhaps not be surprised that it has also managed to dupe its followers into seeing the systematic suppression and silencing of women as an act of liberation and equality. Nevertheless, it is a lie.
