In place of my normal Thursday post, I refer you to this one at Common Consent. Please go and read it. And then think of your own mother -- by name.
Like most of the commenters at BCC, I doubt the article in the Friend (go to page 24 of the .pdf version) had any malicious intent, but rather is symptomatic of a bigger problem: that no one saw a problem with an article about the mother of so many prophets that failed to name any one of those mothers.
I love the Friend and hope this oversight will not be repeated.
[Red-faced, I noticed the link to BCC was broken since I posted this last Thursday; my apologies.]
