Jimmy Carter wrote me back!


I was over the moon to hear about Jimmy Carter's new book several months ago.  I decided to write him a letter telling him so and enclosed a copy of The Girl God.

This afternoon, I found a letter back from him in my mailbox!

Let's keep President Carter in our thoughts and prayers as he finishes what looks to be a remarkable book.

"...it’s the practice of religion that is the basic cause of the foundation of excuse for the other abuses; where women are deprived of an equal right to serve God. And where they are treated as subordinates or inferior people. And this example set by religions leaders gives an excuse to other dominant males to persecute, or abuse, or deprive women of their justifiable rights. This is a question that has never been publicly discussed before, and the Elders help this will arouse and interest in the world in trying to seek corrections made to religions themselves to set an example for full rights for all women.” ~Jimmy Carter
