    Arrow Held Them With Fear

    In God's Name | Culture | The Guardian
    It is the crippling shame the church inculcated in the women that angers Mullan most: "In any oppressive regime, you take away people's ability to think once you take away their ability to express themselves. The church is a pretty sophisticated organisation. It simply didn't serve their purposes to educate these women. They held them with fear, guilt and shame - its oldest and vilest weapons. The methodology they applied is shared by torturers all round the world.
    Did the woman view the church with fear, guilt and shame, or did the church use fear, guilt, and shame to control the women?
