Discrimination: a lost opportunity

Just remember, that ‘no’ could mean – from ++Akinola – ‘no,they haven’t groveled enough’ – and could also mean – from me – ‘no, they did too much appeasing of bullies with no intention of compromise.’

The question is vexatious.

Have they capitulate enough to meet the demands? – yes.

Have they responded adequately? – no

They have lost trust with some souls.

Just as the feminine who rejoiced in Jesus’ birth and ressurection feels betrayed about how women have been more abused and less respected in patriarchial Christianity for the last 2000 years. At least in Judaism, women were respected for upkeeping the home culture and practices to enable all family members to remain in constant communion with God, and thus remain holy people even in the midst of the nations.

Church Times’ question is double: “No” could mean both

I think they should have “submitted”, and

I think they should have said We don’t want to take part in charades.

So; worthless.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
