Gender equality in Christianity, Islam and Judaism
August 27, 2007 11:19am CST
As most people are aware, there are a number of discriminatory laws within within Islam that says that a woman's word is worth only half of a man. I'm wondering if there are any such laws within Christianity and other major religions that are still in effect. And yes, I am aware of the Catholic law that women are not allowed to become Priests, as well as the weak argument against it. Any other gender-based laws you know that might seem ridiculous in today's day and age?

Doesn't sound like anything I've heard, and I've been schooled in it my whole life. Also, you need the context for things like these to make sense. (I'm not entirely sure Sam's friend would be an unbiased source ;P) ReligiousTolerance.Org is a great source for this info.
