“Christianity was not mocked in the early centuries for being anti-women. It was mocked for being so pro-women. Christianity was made fun of by the cultural elites in the Greco-Roman world because so many Christians were women. As a result, the elites said, ‘Oh, this is a religion for women and children.'” – Michael Kruger
