Home » Make a Donation – Women’s Ordination

Jimmy Carter
“The truth is that male religious leaders have had – and still have – an option to interpret holy teachings either to exalt or subjugate women.”
Jimmy Carter, former USA president.

“We had not realised how much we denied ourselves. Now we have the first Anglican women bishops, we are asking ourselves why we were so stupid for so long?”
Archbishop Desmond Tutu
