A Unique Male Perspective on Faith. Fannie’s Room on reading a male centered religious rant on WaPo’s On Faith blog:

This utter lack of consideration for the female woman’s perspective enables him to cockily categorize pro-choice feminism as a “wicked” religion and his anti-abortion opinions, the opinions of a man who completely ignores the female perspective in his philosophical pontifications, as True Faith….The religions that “spiritual men” create are either true or false, depending on which men have created them. (We can speculate where Reynolds stands on which are true and which are false). As for which religions are wicked, things get decidedly more simple. Any so-called religion that de-centers the male perspective and instead views women as fully human as men, possessing bodies and vantage points of their own, is a wicked one.
