Manning looked next to the challenges of the future:
Manning called on parliamentarians to recognize the importance of religion and morality in the public square.
When a younger sibling, Gloria Carter Dickerson, visited from Michigan, the two sisters went to a bookstore, read Manning's book and Shook their heads in anger.
Ruth had felt the same way in 1981, when a Sports Illustrated profile of Manning had quoted a teacher who suggested the Carters had suffered no harassment; they "were simply ignored." Three weeks later, the magazine published a letter from Ruth asserting she could have told a different story had anyone bothered to interview her about her experiences.
But with Manning, "equal but different" becomes "two separate human natures for men and women." This she then tosses aside, going to the opposite extreme, with reference to an obscure scientific study suggesting that a person's sexual identity is mutable.
As for the Pope's heresy, Manning identifies John Paul II with the second century Docetists, who argued that Jesus was a spirit having only the appearance of a body and therefore only seeming to suffer and die.
