Recovering Catholic part 7
Some denominations call us Eve and some call us Mary, as if we are entirely one or the other. Rather than explore and resolve the conflict by acknowledging we are both at once, Christianity buries it. The overall message seems to be that we should be treated like Mary in the hope that we will try to emulate her, but God will forgive us for being Eve. This is to occur in a moral vacuum, with no male leadership, as Adam and Joseph are gagged and duct taped to a chair in the corner.
