Why Eve Took the Rap” from Page Publishing author John Casperson is a pointed analysis of organized religious teaching and texts, which throughout history have been written by men, for men.

John Casperson is an author who has lived in or traveled to fifty different countries and finds that established, formal religious worship is a mostly superfluous pursuit. He has published his latest book “What If God Has a Vagina? Why Eve Took the Rap”: a provocative exploration of gender, sex, and nature in the eyes of organized religion.

The author writes, “Stars and galaxies, atoms and molecules, all created so to render a divine arena for God to love man and for man to love God. Atoms and molecules of our bodies observe the same physical laws as those stars of the cosmos. Yet divinity rests not with the stars but within each of us whose spirit seeks to touch them.

In the twenty-first century, it is now more appropriate to equate gender identity with a spiritual hemisphere (masculine or feminine) than merely biological plumbing (genitalia).

I think, too, that the Golden Rule, ‘Do unto others as you would have them do unto you,’ falls short of the mark unless the statement applies to animals and plants.

Misogyny—the hatred of women. Or more provocatively, is misogyny the hatred of being attracted to women?

Evil resides within one’s own mind and is pointed toward other people as hate, envy, bigotry, racism, etc.

The mind is a wonderful window for the sun to shine in but only works if the shades are open.

Men and women participate in the game of sex—the board is the same but men bring checkers and women bring chess pieces!

The most marvelous sex organ isn’t between the legs, it’s between the ears!

Let’s be clear, worship is not love. Worship is idolatry; love is love.

We seek expression, sexual or otherwise, without hindrance to seek and discover self, our unique identity, our inner yearning to reach for infinity left behind yet achingly just ahead. Our souls strive for freedom, and in so doing… ‘What we commonly call man—the eating, drinking, counting man—does not (as we know him) represent himself. Him we do not respect. But the soul, whose organ he is, would make our knees bend. When it breathes through his intellect it is genius. When it breathes through his will it is virtue. When it flows through his affection it is love’ (Walt Whitman).”

Published by Page Publishing, John Casperson’s engrossing book is an insightful examination of misogyny, chauvinism, and the male-oriented teachings of organized religion throughout and into the modern era.
