A blogging bishop after my own heart

As an English major, I have longed for someone else to say what Dallas Bishop James Stanton noted on his GenCon blog yesterday:

Bishops voted to "urge and encourage" gender equality. (D024) They wanted to see that women and men were equally participating at all levels of the life of the Church. Actually, what they wanted was "sex equality"--"gender" is a grammatical term, as in masculine and feminine nouns, etc.

Or as I often say, "People do not have gender, nouns do."

I think, grammatically, he means "equality of the sexes." "Sex equality" means something quite different....
