The Women's Rights March that Degraded Women

To a great extent the level of any civilization is the level of its womanhood. When a man loves a woman, he has to become worthy of her. The higher her virtue, the more noble her character, the more devoted she is to truth, justice, goodness, the more a man has to aspire to be worthy of her. The history of civilization could actually be written in terms of the level of its women.  
- Venerable Fulton J. Sheen

If Fulton Sheen was correct, and I fully believe he was, then our American civilization appears to those that do not know any better to have degraded to the point of being little more than a cesspool. The latest "women's rights" march in D.C. and throughout the country were nothing more than pro-abortion and pro-LGBT rallies.  They were a screed against the election of a president that they fear will take away their "right" to abort their children.  They were a symbol of our American culture's further slouching towards Gomorrah.

These women, in their pink "pussy hats" and carrying vulgar signs, degraded and lowered themselves and destroyed any sense of feminine dignity they had far more than the disgusting and vile words uttered by Trump years ago in a private conversation in which he has since apologized.  These sad women lowered the standard for what womanhood should be and actually hurt their cause to be heard and taken seriously with their disgusting and undignified actions.

Truly, if Susan B. Anthony had resorted to such filth, vulgarity, and lack of common decency in her fight for women's suffrage, I dare say that women might possibly not have the right to vote today.  So far down has our "pop culture" fallen in these "enlightened" modern times...

If the history of civilization is indeed written in the terms of the level of our women, I pray to God that He knows that the hundreds of thousands of women that did march, do not speak for the millions of good and decent women in our nation that we men should still aspire to be worthy thereof.

I pray for the conversion of the hearts of those women that acted so... unwomanly.

Caution: The following links are not family-friendly but are meant to illustrate the filth of which I speak.  I didn't have the stomach to actually post these pictures on my blog itself.

If the male-dominated hierarchy of the Catholic church had their way, the only careers women could hope to have would be baby factories or nuns.

So the point is this.

Conservative women are Madonnas. Liberal women are whores. (For not wanting Big Government forcing them to bear their rapist's offspring.)

Got it.

Apparently wearing "Pussy Hats" is more vile than describing an act of sexual assault. Okay.

I'd also like to know, since we're in such enlightened times what the definitions of 'Unwomanly' and 'Feminine dignity' are.

Thanks for your comment Jim.

Sadly, you are mistaken, my friend. First, this post wasn't even related to the Catholic Church. The only legitimate reason one could even tangentially bring it into the debate I suppose is because of my reference to Fulton Sheen's quotation.

That said, your understanding of the Catholic Church is one that secular society has falsely perpetrated.

Women are a critical and vital part of the Catholic faith and Church. In my own diocese, there are many women that are leading such functions as Director of Liturgy for ALL parishes in the state, as well as faith formation for the diocese, instructing new deacon candidates, and leading Catholic schools. All of these functions are not necessarily done by nuns. Further, the Church professes that the most revered person in all of God's creation is a woman: Mary, the mother of God.

Women cannot be ordained as part of the clergy, as that is a part of sacred tradition dating back millennia. That said, women are found in nearly every other aspect of the church and are honored and needed as such. They are NOT merely nuns and baby factories as you and much of secular society would have us believe, my friend.

Dave, that really is beneath you, sir.

Women, regardless of their political persuasion, are worthy of our honor, respect, and agape love.

It is my belief that they harm their own femininity and dignity by degrading themselves to the least common denominator in such debates to a level far lower than the pernicious words of Donald Trump ever did. His words do not define women. When they act as many of them did in the march, however, they define themselves as undignified.

And NO woman that is raped is a whore as a result of that rape. Quit with the disgusting and vile hyperbole, Dave. I truly feel great sorrow and pray for those women that have had to suffer such horrific abuse and then become pregnant as a result of it. I cannot even fathom such a thing. It is why justice should be swift and severe to those men that perpetrate such an evil.

That said, if one believes that life truly starts at conception, as is a scientific fact, then how does killing the child in the womb that is a result of rape help? You are essentially still taking an innocent life regardless of the means of his or her conception. You are compounding the egregious evil of the act of rape with the killing of the child. Yes, I cannot imagine the pain, suffering, and trauma of having to carry such a child, but it is not the child's fault worthy of his or her execution, sir. It is one more reason why rape is such a horrible crime.

Unknown, thanks for commenting.

Wearing "pussy hats" in and of itself is not the issue. The women that marched were demanding (and rightfully so) that they not be judged, harassed, treated differently, or demeaned simply because of their genitalia. There were then those women who dressed up as vaginas or referenced in vulgar means their genitalia. How does this dignify their cause and draw sympathy from others to their plight? Instead it made the whole thing into an obscene circus. They did not want to be viewed as sexual objects, and then dressed up and referred to themselves by the very essence of their female sexuality. They defined themselves as nothing more than sexual objects. Surely you must see the contradiction, right?

Don't get me wrong. I vehemently and without reservation condemn the vileness of Trump when he described these sexual assaults. I would have found myself in agreement with these women had they stuck to the issue at hand instead of making the march about pro-abortion "rights" and trying to win hearts and minds with their campaign to one-up each other with their posters and costumes designed to shock and disgust decent Americans. The fact of the matter is that most of these women were outraged (again rightfully so) at Trump's described attacks, but not a word was to be heard when Bill Clinton did the same thing and worse. That tells me this march really isn't about Trump's words/actions but rather it is about their political agenda.
