book from the book recs that came out of the Mary Daly obits was "Goddesses and the Divine Feminine" It is awfully silly that I am reading a book with this title, if you follow the POETICS listserv.
Anyway, in the preface, Rosemary Radford Reuther writes, "Feminists have no perfect option from some past tradition. This means that we can choose from some options..., or we can pursue new options by seeking to recover other ancient traditions."
HUH? REJECT THEM ALL. WHY PICK AND CHOOSE AMONG BAD APPLES.
