I know we have sexism problems in our own movements — women aren’t always treated with respect and I’ve been to conferences that feature a dearth of female speakers. But because of people speaking out against this kind of thing, I have hopes we’ll get better in time.
All that said, at least we’re not as bad as some Baptist groups:
Apparently, women and non-white people aren’t qualified to speak about the Bible. Were they even considered…?
Note to all conference planners (atheists or Christians): Learn a lesson from the James Randi Education Foundation. This is the kind of diversity you ought to shoot for at your events.
