Maureen Dowd: Oh Please.....

Seems that the Catholic Church and B16 is the object of the 'beat the pinata' crowd.
Maureen Dowd has joined in.

I love the last paragragh of this article...

The winner for the single stupidest thing written about the Pope and the Church
Now before you are too hard on poor little Maureen for all this magnificent inanity, there is an explanation. This can be seen in the opening anecdote...

Once, in the first grade, I was late for class. I started crying in the schoolyard, terrified to go in and face the formidable Sister Hiltruda.

Father Montgomery, who looked like a handsome young priest out of a 1930s movie, found me cowering and took my hand, leading me into the classroom.

Sister Hiltruda looked ready to pop, but she couldn’t say a word to me, then or ever. There was no more unassailable patriarchy than the Catholic Church.

Nuns were second-class citizens then and — 40 years after feminism utterly changed America — they still are. The matter of women as priests is closed, a forbidden topic.

If only lil' Maureen hadn't been late to class or Sr. Hiltruda had hit her repeatedly upside the head, she might have learned something. Alas alack. MORE
