Chuck Colson

One of the places these biological differences manifest themselves is the way in which our brains work. According to the Los Angeles Times, ?men and women, on average . . . possess documented differences in certain thinking tasks . . . ? Those of us who are married know this?and are glad of it. It helps me that Patty?s often more sensitive than I am. None of this means, however, that a given girl might not be a brilliant mathematician?only that, all things being equal, mathematicians are more likely to be male than female.

Ideologues like Hopkins don?t care about the facts. Like the villains in C. S. Lewis?s That Hideous Strength, their goal is to re-make humanity in a more amenable image. That begins with denying the obvious and punishing those who dare to point it out?even if his title is the ?president of Harvard.?
