Lord Jesus tells us to:
Settle with your opponent quickly while on the way to court with him.
If you bring your gift to the altar [that is, yourself, to offer along with Christ to the Father],and there recall that your brother [or sister in Christ, that is, your wife] has anything against you, …first be reconciled. (Matthew 5:25,24)
To whom must we apologize most often, for calling him/her “You Fool” (see Matthew 5:22)? The spouse. The part of the Sermon on the Mount about the fifth commandment applies to husbands and wives, more often than not.
“Sexual complementarity” has become a buzzword these days in Catholic circles. But the word touches on the most-profound mystery.
God–Who transcends sex and created men and women in His image–God became a man. In order to betroth a bride to Himself. And the Bride has both men and women for members (us).
We men must beg pardon for under-estimating the gifts that women possess. #1 guilty male chauvinist: right here. May the Lord forgive me.
But do we raise a toast today, because a “glass ceiling” has been broken, and Mrs. Hillary Clinton will head a major-party ticket for President of the USA?
Budweiser has emblazoned their beer cans with “America” for the summer. To raise a Bud for a patriotic toast on Independence Day… A pretty daggone empty and ironic thing to do, since Anheuser-Busch has become a wholly-owned subsidiary of a Belgian-Brazilian conglomerate.
Seems to me that feminist rejoicing over the nomination of a former “First Lady” ranks in the same category of ironic shallowness. Cronyism has become a game for men and women alike! Yea! Rode her husband’s coattails into the limelight! What a victory for women!
Especially when we consider: What an abortion actually entails. Freedom? How about: an act of violence against a mother and child. Usually performed by a man. At the behest of a man.
Makes Hillary Clinton’s cronies at Planned Parenthood look like the biggest male chauvinist pigs in America.
This is not the feminism that America needs. We need to go back to the drawing board, and start with:
God, Who transcends male/female, and Who made man and woman in His image, became a man. To betroth to Himself a Bride, made up of men and women.
