A Belief Beyond Theology: the Catechism of Patriarchy
Lulu.com, 2005 - 294 pages
Exploring our belief in dividing, conquering, controlling, and converting, this catechism explains both contemporary culture and monotheism by its root--patriarchy. Inclusive of genderism/sexism, racism, and classism, patriarchy is over ten thousand years old, and is the real religion behind our cultural beliefs and many contemporary faiths. Gordon engages this topic through the lenses of Creation Spirituality, and suggests ritual forms that help us break free of our traditions. The Catechism of Patriarchy found within this work articulates clearly what we have come to believe about ourselves and our cultures.
