Newest Vatican document is last straw for women

*** begin quote ***In a strongly worded article in today’s Irish Times, Dr Mary Condren of the Centre for Gender and Women’s Studies in Trinity College Dublin, the Republic of Ireland’s foremost university, said that such “misogynist” attitudes by the Church were legitimizing violence and discrimination worldwide and called for an end to the Church’s use of Gospel to justify discrimination, as she saw it.

Isn’t it a bit presumptuous for the male writer to presume to speak for all woman?
And, further, maybe there are some women who like the status quo?
I’m a little L libertarian and I suggest that we leave “women” alone to figure out what they want and then they can do it. Frankly, if women are that upset and leave the Church in significant numbers, then it will pinch them in their pocketbook. That might end the old boys club.
As for me, I don’t think that they have to end it.
Just leave well enough alone.
Not everything has to conform to the new political correctness.
As a private organization, “they”, who ever “they” are, can set the rules how ever “they” want. Unlike the Gooferment, “they” can’t use force to compel anything.
Now, I DO think that a society that puts half its population in head to toe sacks is depriving itself of half its creative energy. Just as I think the society that puts the largest number of people in the world in cages deprives itself of a huge pool of “human resources”.
1. Restore us to “honest” commodity money;
2. End the personal and corporate dole;
3. Stop the various wars — foreign and domestic — repatriate the troops home;
4. End the drug war; pardon all non-violent drug offenders;
5. Transition out of gooferment public education;
6. Downsize ALL gooferments;
7. Eliminate all taxes but tariffs and excise.
We don’t have a lot of time and energy to waste. We have to rescue ourselves form all the tragic and horrible mistakes that we and our forefathers have made.
We have to restore the American Dream.
It all starts with the use of force to compel people to do things. Anything. The Government’s sole role is to protect We, The People from force or fraud. That’s it. Once it goes beyond that it becomes the Gooferment
