Quote for Day: "No One Can Say They Are for the Poor as Jesus Was and Do Nothing, Nothing, Nothing for the Equality of Women"

Sister Joan Chittister to a panel of scholars of religion at the American Academy of Religion meeting in November:

Pope Francis has won the heart of the world by being humble, simple and pastoral -- the warm and caring face of the church, a man like Jesus who is a man of the poor. 
But clearly, no one can say they are for the poor as Jesus was and do nothing, nothing, nothing for the equality of women. To address classism does not begin to resolve the problems that come with sexism.
