Reviews - What do customers think about Behold Thy Mother?
There is no such thing as authentic sexism Sep 27, 2000
Ave Maria Dover likes to push buttons. She is a strong woman with an equally strong message. This is apparent in her book.
Ave's message is simple, in fact it is so simple, most of us have not even thought of it. God is not inherently sexist. If we want to change the treatment of women, homosexuals, and our children, we must change the attitudes of our churches, mosques, and temples. A beautiful and invaluable message.
Ave writes, "I believe the exclusion of our mothers and daughters by almost every major religion, past and present, is the root cause of every other oppression. We cannot, we must not, allow the world's religions to sit our sons and daughters in a pew and teach them this great lie: 'God discriminates against your mother.' " I say, amen sister.
This book is sometimes brutally honest. But that is a good thing. Most movements are started by brutally honest people who have a clear vision. And I believe this book could start a movement. A movement towards equality for women, not only in the work force, but in the eyes of the men who run the religions of the world. This might be a long time coming, but we've got to start somewhere, so let's start with the mamas and their children.
