Women and Christ

1.31.2008


Nothing is more startling, and indeed horrifying, than the contrast between the perfect simplicity of Jesus in His relations with women,...His complete silence as to any special duties, frailties, mysteries, dangers, or dirt connected with their sex, and the self-consciousness and interminable chatter of His followers on the subject.

- Dorothy L. Sayers

I'm glad you like it! Sometimes I get so frustrated about what Jesus didn't say about women, but maybe the fact that he kept silent on them was revolutionary in and of itself.
