gloria steinem

Leftists love to spout outrageous moral equivalences.

But Steinem’s latest lunacy is a real whopper.

Via Bizpac Review:

….When presented with the opportunity to interview a renowned feminist, Bill Maher asked why the treatment of women in the Muslim world was not a bigger issue for those advocating women’s rights.

“Why aren’t the way women are treated in the Muslim world considered more of a feminist cause?” the host of HBO’s “Real Time” asked social and political activist Gloria Steinem….

Steinem, who was long recognized as the spokeswoman for the feminist movement, said “All monotheism is a problem.” Maher responded “Yes, but not quite as much,” as he pushed back on Steinem’s claim that all theocracies are a problem.

“I can’t handle any monotheism,” Steinem said as she pointed out that feminists in Muslim countries are trying to push reforms. But Maher still wondered why it seems the cause of women under Sharia law is not one that today’s feminists decry….

    Most Judeo-Christian women live lives of freedom without fear.
    All other theists fear almost every day.
    If only Steinem would go live in a place with mandatory burkas,she’d
    change her mind right quick.

    She’s 81 and spent most of her life fighting the Catholic Church for abortion. Recognizing that Islam is a large threat to women would mean that she picked a smaller target and diminish her life’s pursuit.

    Maybe she should talk to these women who actually FIGHT for their freedom:

    The willful blindness boggles the mind. To the narcissist, the concept of God is an anathema, in that implies there is something in the universe greater than Me. But it’s not enough for the Steinems of the world to disbelieve and carry on with their lives; they perceive your faith as a threat, because it implicitly denies her authority.

    There is certainly bad religion out there, and false prophets and evil counselors. Good religious people know this. A text from the Christian Bible comes to mind, Matthew 12:33:

    Either make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by his fruit.

    NY Post headline writer calls Steinem and Albright, ‘bully mammoths’ in the headline for M.Goodwin’s column.
