There is no such thing as a Catholic feminist.
Hold up, let me say that again: THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A CATHOLIC FEMINIST.
I mean, the very term ‘Catholic feminist’ is in itself an oxymoron.
“Oh, but it is possible to be both Catholic and a feminist”, I hear you say.
No, it is not. And this is because feminism goes against everything proper Catholic doctrine stands for; it goes against God’s natural plan for women. There is nothing feminine in feminism – nothing!
People have this idea that feminism is pro-woman and is all about gender equality.
Well, I am so very sorry to tell you this – you have been lied to.
Feminism is just not compatible with Christian beliefs…..with Catholicism even.
There IS a major crisis of masculinity and femininity….and not just within the Church. The answer to this is NOT feminism.
The feminist ideology is all about gender equality for men and women, but equality does not mean sameness.
Men and women ARE equal. We are equal, yet different and the differences between us help us complement each other. God is the Divine Architect and He for sure did not make mistakes when he designed man and woman.
Modern feminism is toxic and seems obsessed with men, and obsessed with becoming men. Modern feminism is militant…..it is all about ‘women power’ and being superior to men – so much for gender equality, eh?
Over the decades, as men became more effeminate and more dependent on women, this fuelled the rise in women dominating them and the advent of radical feminism. Under the guise of ‘equality’, feminism has gone beyond just the right to vote and now seeks to emasculate and diminish men – truly satanic in nature!
I could barely contain my disgust at THIS ARTICLE
With men being progressively stomped out of the picture due to their inaction, why are people surprised at the breakdown of the family unit and increased rates of divorce? We are showing and telling men that we don’t need them cos we are ‘strong independent women that don’t need no man!’ and they are giving us what we asked for by refusing to commit, refusing to marry, refusing to provide, refusing to maintain their marriages & families. We are in essence hurting our own selves, as women.
In addition to modern feminism being anti-women and anti-men, it is also pro-death because it argues for the ‘right’ of women to have contraception and abortion.
Claiming to be pro-choice is another way of saying: I reserve the right to murder my child. Christians and especially Catholics who claim to be ‘pro-choice’ seem to forget that they are violating the 6th commandment – THOU SHALT NOT KILL.
Modern society complains that men are not manly enough, then proceeds to emasculate them – um, cognitive dissonance much?
Regardless of what feminists say, traditional gender roles facilitate better relationships, happier marriages and stable families. Feminism seeks to destroy all three
This is why radical Islam is on the rise.
The younger generation is fed up.
They want a return to traditional roles and old-fashioned values. They can’t find it in the Church because the Church looks exactly like the world! You even have Catholic and Christians claiming to be pro-choice, claiming to be feminists.
So the disillusioned youth are drawn to radical Islam because it is different to modern society. Modern society and feminism basically fostered the current epidemic of radical Islam and terrorism. Yay, you (!)
Men and women have ALWAYS been equal……equal in value, but different and complementary in function.
Modern society is now so busy trying to prove that women can do what a man can do, that women are losing their uniqueness and femininity.
As a woman, are you attracted to feminine men? No? Then, pray tell, why would a man be attracted to a masculine woman?
Women were not created to do everything that a man can do. Women were created to do everything that a man can’t. Revel in your womanhood and natural femininity.
Would Mary have been a feminist? No. If she was, would God have chosen her to bear Our Lord? No.
I urge you to return back to tradition, return back to sound doctrine, return to the Catholic faith as it is the one, true Church and most importantly return to being the woman God made you to be.
I’ll sign off this blog post with this ‘letter’ to feminism:
Boys are not defective girls
Men are not defective women
Masculinity is not toxic; it is a complement to femininity
Men are not inherently violent or sexual predators
Men have a lot to work on and reclaim their masculinity, but they are not broken
So please, stop telling us that they are and stop trying to turn women into men.
Feminist women are not a substitute to men.
Mary, model of femininity, pray for us!
