More women than men typically participate in church. In recent years this has been the source of much worry and hand wringing, at least in certain, often more fundamentalist circles.
Some have leveled accusations that the church is too feminine, with the clear message that feminine traits are inferior.
Others seek to explain the imbalance by suggesting that women are just more “religious” than men, but this assertion does not hold up because Christianity is the only world religion that has higher participation by females than males. Interestingly this has been true from the earliest days of Christianity.
Today’s link takes a thoughtful look at the question of why Christianity seems to be more attractive to women than other religious traditions.
