SIR,-In the recent discussion in your paper about "Equality of the sexes as to acquirement of higher education," one reader, Mr. John H. Talbot, quotes (Ttia CATHOLIC HERALD, May 28) from the Holy Scriptures in favour of a discrimination of the sexes as to the acquirement of higher education I Corinthians xiv, 34, 35, and I Peter iii, 1-6, to which it should not be very difficult to reply by means of another quotation from the Holy Scriptures, namely, Galatians
28-30: "There cannot be Jew and Greek, slave and free man, male and female; you are all one in Christ Jesus," which is in striking contrast to Mr. Talbot's quotations. I am convinced that the Holy Scriptures are to he understood in their entirety and not according to a few detached quotations, which may easily be interpreted according to human wishes, for which reason I do not overestimate such quotations.
However, when the doctrine of the equality of sexes as to acquirement of higher education is challenged (by men and, strange to say, by women) as un-Scriptural, un-Christian and un-Catholic, I am afraid that somebody does not realise the important fact that Christianity never can sanction any kind of discrimination of sexes, classes, races, etc., in regard to common human benefits, least of all when the acquirement of higher education is in question.
