While it may be too little too late, Jimmy Carter's decision to sever his ties with the Southern Baptist Convention, after six decades is a welcome sign of improvement. This former USA President cited the discrimination of women based on outdated scripture as the main reason for doing so.
What has disappointed me is Carter still blames the injustice upon women as a selfish interpretation of the bible/"holy" teachings by religious leaders. The fact is that religious leaders willingly believe or hypocritically claim to believe in an unproven god and wield their power based on such a lie is a greater crime to humanity. The world would be a much better place without religion.
