Religion-Based Affirmative Action Programs For Men

Check out this flyer for a Baptist conference featuring lots of totally diverse speakers.

Fun fact: The group that is putting on this conference has certain articles of faith.

These articles of faith make a clear distinction between men and women, saying, "WE BELIEVE that men and women are spiritually equal in position before God but that God has ordained distinct and separate spiritual functions for men and women in the home and the church."

These articles of faith recite the word "man" 8 times, "men" 5 times, "mankind" 2 times, "he" 15 times, "him" 6 times, "father" 3 times, and "son" 7 times.

These articles of faith recite the word "woman" 2 times, "women" 2 times, "womankind" 0 times, "she" 0 times, "her" 0 times, "mother" 1 time, and "daughter" 1 time.

Takeaway: Men and women are totally, definitely spiritually equal beings before God, but more equal are the beings who possess the sword of the lord.
