Benedict's Encyclical Unwittingly Honored by Feminist Blog Carnival

The Raving Atheist notes that his post in which he quoted Betty Friedan on monogamy and chastity has been included in the online Carnival of the Feminists, which aims to " End Sexism, Sexist Exploitation, and Oppression."

There's just one thing. As the RA reveals on his blog, a large quote that he attributed to Friedan was actually taken from the Pope's encyclical on love, "Deus Caritas Est."

The RA — who had submitted his post for consideration to the feminist blog carnival — waggishly attributes the miscredit to "an editing error."
