A Quote

"Responsible men can become more deeply convinced of the truth of the doctrine laid down by the Church on this issue if they reflect on the consequences of methods and plans for artificial birth control. Let them first consider how easily this course of action could open wide the way for marital infidelity and a general lowering of moral standards. Not much experience is needed to be fully aware of human weakness and to understand that human beings—and especially the young, who are so exposed to temptation—need incentives to keep the moral law, and it is an evil thing to make it easy for them to break that law. Another effect that gives cause for alarm is that a man who grows accustomed to the use of contraceptive methods may forget the reverence due to a woman, and, disregarding her physical and emotional equilibrium, reduce her to being a mere instrument for the satisfaction of his own desires, no longer considering her as his partner whom he should surround with care and affection." Humanae Vitae, Pope Paul VI.

The encyclical was rejected, reviled, held in contempt, as was even so simple a thing as Mike Pence's refusal to be alone with any woman but his wife.  The encyclical has proved prophetic. And Pence, at least, will be safe from the growing hysteria.

I pity the assaulted children and it's a good thing I'm not the parent of one of them.  Too bad liberals haven't been as concerned with the gay rights "leaders" of San Francisco who have been nailed for child pornography in recent years. I pity the young people who looked up to others who were no more than predators. But I'm all out of sympathy for squalling liberal women.  They played the "sex as sport" game.  The actresses in particular played it on the screen and lived it in their lives.  They promoted it.  Liberal women danced down the streets of DC in p hats and vagina suits, demanding "choice" and contraceptives and abortions paid for by me, and their p-whipped men danced with them.  Well, too bad if some men want to play the sport differently.  Too bad if their choices are different from yours - you demanded choice, they LIVE choice.  Women are as complicit in this as men are.  They BOTH have rejected reverance.  They BOTH have rejected honor.  The wind has been sowed, now the whirlwind will be reaped.


  1. Well said, and now they are singing a different tune, because it suits their 'new' agenda... sigh

    1. And I fear that many men who are innocent of assault are going to be destroyed by the hysteria when un-provable accusations are used against them as weapons of manipulation or revenge for some other issue. Bad enough what happened at Salem and that day care - now we've got the internet to fan the flames.
