Today, three Episcopal priests launched a new website, entitled All Faithful Can–a play on the earlier hashtag: #yesallwomen. The priests: the Rev. Jordan Haynie Ware, the Rev. Robert Berra, and the Rev. Jocelynn Jurkovich-Hughes, have set up the site to be a safe space for women’s stories of experiencing misogyny inside and outside of the Church.
The site also hosts resources on how the Church can construct theology to fight sexism, and honor the dignity of every person in a practical way.
From the section, “Why should the Church care about Rape Culture?”, it explains why a site like this would be needed now:
To sum up: God loves human beings. All of them. And rape culture devalues women and warps the minds and relationships of both women and men. The Church, rather than combating this sinful worldview, has perpetuated it by wrongly focusing on sexual sin as the primary sin one can commit, and laying at women’s feet the responsibility for avoiding this sin. The Church must repent for our past actions and actively work to support survivors & hold perpetrators accountable if we seek to participate in the kingdom of God.
