Mainstream philosophers of religion have so far failed to takeexplicit account of the gendered dynamics of religious thought, butfor thirty years a variety of other scholars, including biblicalexegetes, theologians, ethicists, and feminist philosophers ofreligion, have produced an extraordinary explosion of researchresulting in feminist thealogies, critical hermeneutics of suspicion,and woman-affirming writings on spirituality. In these, the problem ofGod appears as a crucial site of reconstruction.

Feminists argue that philosophy of religion can hardly ignorequestions of gender ideology when its very subjectmatter—religion—is riddled with misogyny andandrocentrism. They point out that, historically, gender bias inreligion has been neither accidental nor superficial. ElizabethJohnson (1993) likens it to a buried continent whose subaqueous pullshaped all the visible landmass; androcentric bias has massivelydistorted every aspect of the terrain and rendered invisible,inconsequential, or nonexistent the experience and significance ofhalf the human race. For philosophers studying the intellectualeffects and belief systems of religions, the opportunity to critiqueand correct sexist and patriarchal constructions in this field is asample as it is urgent, given the presence of gender ideology in allknown religions. Not one of the religions of the world has beentotally affirming of women's personhood. Every one of them conforms toHeidi Hartmann's definition of patriarchy as “relations betweenmen, which have a material base, and which, though hierarchical,establish or create interdependence and solidarity among men thatenable them to dominate women” (1981, 14). All sacredliteratures of the world display an unvarying ambivalence on thesubject of women. For every text that places well-domesticatedwomanhood on a religious pedestal, another one announces that, ifuncontrolled, women are the root of all evil. Religion has thuscomprised a primary space in which and by means of which genderhierarchy has been culturally articulated, reinforced, andconsolidated in institutionalized form. Religion is hardly the onlysuch space, but it appears to have been a particularly effective wayof undergirding and sanctifying gender hierarchy in the West.

It follows that the education of children is the prerogative not of the state but of the parents or church members. Furthermore, it is evident that allowing the state to dictate the standards and procedures of Christian education jeopardizes the ability of parents and of church members to carry out their responsibility to God for the education of their children. The subjection of the Christian school to the control of the state or of any other secular agency is, in effect, the subjection of the Christian homes and churches to secular domination. It is rightly regarded as vicious, for secular control (even that which may appear benign) is incompatible with the aims of a spiritual ministry.
