There is evidence that the exclusion of women from roles of religious
authority is an obstacle to the *integral human development of both men
and women*. Another conclusion is that incentives (including subsidies),
as well as disincentives, are the best leverage points that must be
democratically adjusted/revised to steer societies and economies from
the current crisis toward sustainable development.

Reply by Mugisho Ndabuli Th. Exluding females in religious authority is a religiuos segregation. We all including females, should unite and be one. If we consider what the Bible teaches about the creation of man, God saw that everything was nice but Adam was still missing a wife; so God made him one. This clearly explains the reason why we should not discard females from any religious activity and this is out of the total integration of females. They should not be accepted in some domains and be segregated in others. However, this can be possible in case they are not able to perform satisfactorily but since they can still do as well as their fellow men, let them develop integrally in any domain of their choice. We men are often too selfish in considering some passages of the BIBLE that do favour us but those that favour females are looked down. Females are our mothers, they beget us for a long period before we are born, they follow us up until we become mature and only at this moment we feel able that they must not be given chance for total development. Let them develop as they made us develop in their whomb. Dec 3, 2009
