Resolved: That the Gospel of Jesus has done more to help more women than any other teaching in the history of Planet Earth.
I challenge you, John.
I issue this challenge assuming that John is sincere, and because millions of other people agree with him that Christianity has harmed women terribly.
Supplemental question: if my claim turns out to be true, John, would that open your mind to rethinking your rejection of Christianity?
2017 Update: Loftus declined to debate, or to change his mind or even stop repeating these comments or amending them in any way. But his followers insisted on my making the case for my position, anyway. I subsequently did so, with a seven-part series, beginning here. The series has now grown to some two dozen posts, and a book is in the works as well. Needless to say, Loftus never responded substantively, though I did stir up a few other hornet's nests.
