I'd rather see this paper as an advance in social matters all over  
the "christian" world (even though religion is the opium... etc) than  
only as a "set back" for the American religious right.

Things like:

> Genesis ii, 21-22
> So the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and while  
> he slept he took one of his ribs and closed up its place with  
> flesh; and the rib which the Lord God had taken from the man he  
> made into a woman and brought her to the man
> Genesis iii, 16
> God said to the woman [after she was beguiled by the serpent]: “I  
> will greatly multiply your pain in childbearing; in pain you shall  
> bring forth children, yet your desire shall be for your husband,  
> and he shall rule over you.”

May be obvious for a lot of "us", they are still very deeply embedded  
in the occidental psyche. It's been more than 3000 years that a huge  
lot of common people have lived by those rules... It is about time  
the people who seeded that confirm it was total crap...
