Living on a prayer

Fair play to Janet Jackson for taking the opportunity to use her Billboard awards acceptance speech to voice her support for the #MeToo movement. It's hugely disappointing, then, that she went on to claim that Christianity might be the solution to sexual discrimination: "My prayer is that, weary of such noise, we will turn back to the source of all calmness, that source is God. Everything we lack, God has in abundance: compassion, sensitivity, patience and boundless love." It's not like religion regularly institutionalises gender inequality or anything, is it?
