It really needs to be the case because women in general display more love and compassion and much less proclivity toward violence than men do.Read one of the most important teachings of Jesus and decide for yourself if men or women are more likely to follow it:
Matthew 5:44 (New King James Version)
44 But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you.
No war or violence there !
A few weeks ago I found an interesting article documenting the fact that women are even significantly more generous than men.It's a long article so I'll just re-print the headline conclusion:
