Something New | Quote by Theologian and Philosopher Daphne Hampson

Half of humanity, throughout the ages and in all cultures, has effectively been prevented from expressing its spiritual aspirations or its understanding of that which is God. Culture and religion have been male; formed by men with--as we shall see--a 'place' for woman. It does not do to patch up the past. We need revolution. Only when men can be prized free from their ancestry, can we, women and men together, begin to create something new.

~Daphne Hampson (from After Christianity, 1996)
