Former President Carter Blasts Catholic Teaching on Women’s Ordination
Catholic Culture ^ | 3/26/14

Posted on 03/26/2014 6:00:24 AM PDT by marshmallow

In an interview with National Public Radio, former President Jimmy Carter said that Catholic teaching on women’s ordination has led to the abuse of women throughout the world.

“The fact that the Catholic Church, for instance, prohibits women from serving as priests or even deacons gives a kind of a permission to male people all over the world, that well, if God thinks that women are inferior, I’ll treat them as inferiors,” said Carter. “If she’s my wife, I can abuse her with impunity, or if I'm an employer, I can pay my female employees less salary.”

They have pretty much won on homosexual marriage, and are now going for women's ordination.

They know that will lead to abortion support.

Let me know when he “blasts” Islam for their treatment of women, like, stoning or marrying 9 year old girls. Or its that the Catholic Churches fault too.

Oh wait. That would take courage.

This flippin' idiot has had his 15 minutes.

Why would anyone in this day and age give a rat's patootie what he has to say about anything?

The only thing he's good for is comparison to obama as to which was the worst president.

Yeah Jimmah, that is precisely what Paul was thinking when he wrote his epistle to the Corinthians.

It is not 2000 years of tradition but the Word as inspired by the Holy Spirit that requires Pastors, Deacons, and Teachers to be at the miminum:

A MAN of one wife not divorced
Beyond reproach
Not given to strong drink
...........
“This is a true saying, If a man desire the office of a bishop, he desireth a good work.” (1 Timothy 3:1).

He’s a Democrat first, not a Christian, just as Pelosi is a Demorat first, not a Catholic, and Reid is a Democrat first, not a Mormon. Their real religion is Big Government, and that has their full allegiance.

One thing I can give President Obama credit for: he doesn't allow that blowhard access to the White House to offer his unsolicited advice and counsel.

This ex-president has not had it easy after serving in office. He is desperate to re-write history, to salvage something from his disastrous four year record, mercifully terminated by Ronald Reagan. The current occupant is quite capable of snatching the "Worst President Ever" award from Carter on his own.

I’m not surprised that Jimmy hates Catholics. He was born in 1924, just before the peak of the vehemently anti-Catholic second Ku Klux Klan, so by the time he was 6-8 years old, he had probably heard lots of anti-Catholic rants, along with the typical anti-Jewish rants.

And it’s not surprising that this didn’t include open dislike of blacks, in that middle class whites were careful to not insult their part time domestic servants, like cleaning women, laundry women, and other help, instead holding them in gentle contempt as inferiors who lived on “the other side of the railroad tracks.”

He belongs to a Southern Baptist schismatic church, a recent religious schism, that broke away from the Southern Baptist Conference, because it wasn’t leftist enough. It is called the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship, and he is parroting their platform against the SBC.

Jimmy Carter is a turd.

Jimmy Carter carried his own suitcase into the White House in a famous photo op. Now he feels obliged to lecture other religious denominations on their beliefs. He has apparently abandoned the pose of humility that served his purposes, long ago.

Perhaps someone close to him--someone who has no ax to grind--should quietly explain to the ex-President, that this behavior is completely inappropriate.

If I remember correctly, it was only after Jimmuh became president that his church allowed Black People. I think he belonged to a country club that was similar.

Did Carter ever condemn Muslim women and child sex slavery?

UK: Child Sex Slavery, Multiculturalism and Islam

Gatestone Institute. ^ | March 24, 2014 | Soeren Kern

http://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/4226/uk-child-sex-slavery

Child-protection have almost entirely failed in their job to protect vulnerable children. From a fear of being called ‘racist,’ police forces across the country have buried the evidence.... Political correctness would be used to make sure that people did not speak about this phenomenon.” — from Easy Meat: Multiculturalism, Islam and Child Sex Slavery..

“[A Safeguarding Children Board stated that, ‘great care will be taken in drafting…this report to ensure that its findings embrace Rotherham’s qualities of diversity. It is imperative that discussions of a wider cultural phenomenon are avoided.’” — from Easy Meat: Multiculturalism, Islam and Child Sex Slavery

British authorities enforcing political correctness have allowed Muslim paedophile gangs to sexually abuse children with impunity for more than two decades, according to a comprehensive new study that examines the harrowing epidemic of child grooming in towns and cities across Britain.

The meticulously documented report, entitled, “Easy Meat: Multiculturalism, Islam and Child Sex Slavery,” shows how officials in England and Wales were aware of rampant child grooming—the process by which sexual predators befriend and build trust with children in order to prepare them for abuse—by Muslim gangs since at least 1988.

Rather than taking steps to protect British children, however, police, social workers, teachers, neighbors, politicians and the media deliberately downplayed the severity of the crimes perpetrated by the grooming gangs in order to avoid being accused of “Islamophobia” or racism.

The conspiracy of silence was not broken until November 2010, when it was leaked that police in Derbyshire had carried out an undercover investigation—dubbed Operation Retriever—and arrested 13 members of a Muslim gang for grooming up to 100 underage girls for sex.

J.C is said to have been a born again Christian, does being born again cause a man to lie,steal and disregard and disrespect every thing the Bible says?

Romans 3
4 let God be true, but every man a liar;

Men are liars and that is the best argument for what is called sola scriptura

And even then it can be and is twisted around to involve nothing more than words and ritual.

1John 3:18
My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth.

Some people need to fade into the background. Jimmy Carter is exhibit #1. I guess he serves one good purpose: to show people that wisdom doesn’t automatically come with age. Jimmy has gone from being a fool to being an old fool.
