Imagine for a moment being so gullible that you could actually believe
the following things:

- Jimmy Carter: ‘Losing My Religion For Equality’ November 5, 2016
This discrimination, unjustifiably attributed to a Higher Authority, has provided a reason or excuse for the deprivation of women’s equal rights across the world for centuries.
