Former President Jimmy Carter has left his church because he believes in equality. For any white male to take a stand for women’s rights, this is huge. I applaud anyone who stands up for their beliefs, especially against huge opposition. In the wake of the HBO released documentary on Scientology,interviewing leaders that left that church, I hope this becomes a trend.
I left organized religion at age 15, after being badgered into participating in one last rite solely to please my family. It pains me to see intelligent people push agendas because they blindly accept the claim that God is behind their actions. And they hold the Bible up every time.
Use your “God given” free will and stand up for you own beliefs instead of following the herd.
