Jimmy Carter is awesome.

He's leaving his church because of how it treats women and girls.

Say what you will about the man, he is no hypocrite.

Would that more public figures would follow. Shoot, would that *anyone* would follow. I just don't get why people tolerate -- let alone fork over their money to support -- the institutionalized misogyny in their religions.

People talk a lot about trying to change things from within. I would buy that line if things were, you know, changing.

Kudos to President Carter for voting with his feet. Thank you, sir.


  1. actions speak louder than words, for sure!

  2. Tremendous quote - well written as well. Thank you for finding this.

  3. Wow. What a completely amazing man. Thanks for posting this!

    (Wouldn't it be nice if all our ex-presidents did such worthwhile things with their post-presidential lives?)
