Jimmy Carter says Southern Baptists discriminate against women

Former President Jimmy Carter spoke at a Bible study at the Baptist World Congress in England yesterday, where he said that the Southern Baptist Convention is led by men who want “to keep women in their place.”
Carter also said that Southern Baptists and other churches misuse Scripture to deny women the chance to serve as ministers.
Interesting stuff…though I’d argue that discrimination against women isn’t unique to Southern Baptists.
