In this post, Mike mentions that one commenter responded to the phrase "equal but different" with this remark. (see the World on the Web, comment #2) The entire comment thread is fascinating.
- “Separate but equal” is a colloquial phrase ridiculed for good reason. I am, personally, baffled by the idea of a Christian woman (or a woman engaging any of the three great monotheisms).
Why embrace a theology (or any other set of ideas) that makes a nonsensical claim to one’s perpetual second-class nature?
