Is Talking About the Complementarity of the Sexes Enough?

After all, even the Catholic feminists do that.

CWR: The Complementarity of Men and Women, Across the Religious Spectrum by Aurora C. Griffin (via Insight Scoop)

A review of Not Just Good, but Beautiful: The Complementary Relationship between Man and Woman, a compilation of speeches from the 2014 Humanum Conference

"Because of their theological differences, the unified witness of the religions of the world is based largely on philosophical, biological, sociological, and psychological insights. Using these fields, they are able to build a fairly comprehensive view of how men and women work together with their different geniuses. A recurring theme is that the distinct features of each sex suit them for parenthood: femininity for motherhood, and masculinity for fatherhood."

No mention of the role of the husband as the head and protector of the family.

"This trailer for ABC’s Quantico will fulfill virtually any SJW Bingo Card."


From a comment at Sailer:

Is there any new show, on cable or commercial network TV, worse than this?

No, Not Really Surprising at All

SJW Remake

Variety: Ronda Rousey to star in Road House reboot

Tired of all the attention she is getting, especially from emasculated men. I wouldn't call the original a Patrick Swayze '80s action classic, and even though Sam Elliott is in the movie I probably wouldn't recommend it to anyone but that's true of most movies. The point is, the remake won't be an improvement.

Paul Gottfried Articles in Crisis Now

The Catholic webzine moving in a paleo direction? Compelling New Book Shreds SCOTUS Marriage Decision by Paul E. Gottfried

My one criticism of Anderson’s otherwise carefully researched brief against the Supreme Court’s decision in Obergefell v. Hodges is that the author tries too hard to distinguish between the battle for same-sex “marriage” and the continuing war against “racism.” Although admittedly interracial marriage does fit the prescribed norms for heterosexual unions, showing complementarity of the sexes and laying the foundations for procreation and the raising of children with male and female role models, the crusade for gay “marriage” can nonetheless be seen as an extension of the feminist and civil rights struggles. Common to all of them was judicial and administrative social engineering, aiming at the goal of greater equality for groups that were regarded as disadvantaged. The multiple anti-discrimination laws that the Becket Foundation for Religious Freedom lists as now being applied to partners in gay “marriage” were already enacted to fight racism and sexism.
Of course the shooter in the season finale of The Last Ship had to be a fundamentalist (i.e. part of the Immune cult) Southerner quoting John Wilkes Booth. The series has been a mixed bag, definitely pushing the SJW agenda but not as bad as other shows on TV.

Not quite what I was asking for. Let's see some refugees being put up at Casa Santa Marta, not in the parish churches within the city's walls.

He is free to ask but he has no authority to command in this regard. However, given the strength of the papal cult and ultramontanism, how many can make the distinction?

Let the Bishops Lead by Example

Peter Hitchens, We won't save refugees by destroying our own country

Every one of the posturing notables simpering ‘refugees welcome’ should be asked if he or she will take a refugee family into his or her home for an indefinite period, and pay for their food, medical treatment and education.
If so, they mean it. If not, they are merely demanding that others pay and make room so that they can experience a self-righteous glow. No doubt the same people are also sentimental enthusiasts for the ‘living wage’, and ‘social housing’, when in fact open borders are steadily pushing wages down and housing costs up.

So, how would the bishops asking for mercy and humaneness and the reception of refugees respond to this challenge by Mr. Hitchens?
