Valuing Equal Rights

I just posted a blog about Concerned Women for America on my Mainstream Baptist weblog.

CWA first organized to oppose the Equal Rights Amendment.

The most fundamental value that distinguishes Christian Democrats from right-wing Christians is that we value equal rights for both men and women.

Mainstream Christians never secured ratification in enough states to pass the Equal Rights Amendment. We need to go back and finish the job.

When business and government began slowly but voluntarily to comply with ERA, we thought we could skip this step. That was the beginning of our downfall.
