Concerning “The Presumption of Equality,” by Rose Marie Berger (September-October 2012): Only when we understand that our God is so much bigger than we can begin to imagine, and that God is able to use women as well as men to respond to God’s sovereign will, can everyone be allowed to grow and serve in ever-new ways. I have been closed out of my religion so many times. I’m so sorry the women religious are suffering, but I urge you to continue to stand your ground. God’s perspective is enormous.

Sojourners Comment Community Covenant

I will express myself with civility, courtesy, and respect for every member of the Sojourners online community, especially toward those with whom I disagree, even if I feel disrespected by them. (Romans 12:17-21)

I will express my disagreements with other community members' ideas without insulting, mocking, or slandering them personally. (Matthew 5:22)

I will not exaggerate others' beliefs nor make unfounded prejudicial assumptions based on labels, categories, or stereotypes. I will always extend the benefit of the doubt. (Ephesians 4:29)

I will hold others accountable by clicking "report" on comments that violate these principles, based not on what ideas are expressed but on how they're expressed. (2 Thessalonians 3:13-15)

I understand that comments reported as abusive are reviewed by Sojourners staff and are subject to removal. Repeat offenders will be blocked from making further comments. (Proverbs 18:7)
