Jimmy Carter warns the Bible is being used to promote the abuse of women and girls


Jimmy Carter is making a “call to action” over discrimination and violence against women, addressing issues from female genital mutilation to child marriage in a new book out in the US this week.

The 39th US president writes in A Call to Action of his belief that “the most serious and unaddressed worldwide challenge is the deprivation and abuse of women and girls”, which he says is “largely caused by a false interpretation of carefully selected religious texts and a growing tolerance of violence and warfare, unfortunately following the example set during my lifetime by the United States”.

Out tomorrow from Simon & Schuster in the US, the book is already drawing positive reviews: the Pittsburgh Post Gazette said that it “should not only be required reading in America, but should also serve as the template for a complete reinterpretation of the religious views behind our treatment of each other”. The St Louis Post-Dispatch said it “reinforces [Carter's] dedication to wiping out injustice – and his ability to move others to join his cause”.


Simon & Schuster said that Carter, who, with his wife Rosalynn, has visited 145 countries, his charity The Carter Centre active in more than half of them, was “encouraged to write this book by a wide coalition of leaders of all faiths”. The book will see Carter point out “that women are treated more equally in some countries that are atheistic or where governments are strictly separated from religion”.

MCGRUFF THE CRIME DOG'S ACTOR ARRESTED FOR POSSESSION OF GRENADE LAUNCHER, MARIJUANA

Bow Wo Boom?

The state of Texas sentenced McGruff the Crime Dog actor John R. Morales to 16 years in prison for possession of drugs and weapons.

After a traffic stop for speeding in 2011, police found blueprints for two marijuana-growing facilities on McGruff/Morales' front seat and marijuana seeds just in the trunk of his car.

During a subsequent search of Morales' home, officers found "1,000 marijuana plants, 27 weapons – including a grenade launcher, and 9,000 rounds of ammunition".

Dalai Lama Opens Senate Session With Prayer

And on Thursday, the Dalai Lama prayed in the U.S. Senate.

With dozen of lawmakers listening raptly, the Nobel laureate from Tibet opened the session with his favorite prayer and words of advice. He delivered his brief remarks in both a foreign tongue as well as self-described "broken English."

"With our thoughts, we make our world," said the Dalai Lama, dressed in gold and red robes. "Our mind is central and precedes our deeds. Speak or act with a pure mind and happiness will follow you like a shadow that never leaves."

He hoped for joy in the world and good fortune.

Offering his favorite prayer, he said that "as long as space remains and as long as sentient beings remain, until then may I, too, remain and help dispel the misery of the world."
