Interesting Thought...

The Cannonball has gone off into major rant mode... it makes for entertaining reading!

Right now I feel like women ruin everything. Women ruined the Church, women are ruining the education systems, the government, the work force. There are seeping it with politically correct phrasing, perfume, doilies and squelching all forms competition and competitiveness.

Its a very well known fact that if you want men to lose interest in something, get a bunch of women involved. Women want every one to play nice. All playing nice has gotten us is a bunch metro-sexual feminized men...

Women want their men to behave like ladies, and they themselves want to be liberalised ball busters. What happened? Oh, Yeah. The sexual revolution & women's lib. Yawn.

While I don't agree that women have ruined everything, I do agree with the main thrust of Carolina's argument... the Liturgy is tending (post Vatican II) to become too feminised... This year our Confirmation classes have split (accidentally... because of football practice) into a girls' night and a boys' night (well, three girls attend). It is fascinating to see how very differently they respond to essentially the same information.

The girls are into the touchy-feely emotion-and-thought stuff; the boys like hard facts, black-and-white, right-and-wrong and what do you have to do...? And this carries over into preferred styles of worship - the girls love to write out their own prayers... the boys would much rather just say the set prayers they are familiar with, and where they know exactly what they need to do and say, and when...

Its true. But because so many catechists are women, their point of view and style tends to predominate.

Church, therefore, seems a womanly thing and the boys skip it.

But the preponderance of women in education is by no means limited to ecclesiastical catechesis. In academia, the same problem is felt as well.

at St Joseph's Catholic School, in the Middle School, we educate boys and girls separately. It has been a huge success and is popular with everyone.

Indisputable.

I read the Crescat's list and wonder: so 3 year olds can't play Cops & Robbers, but 17 year olds can play Grand Theft Auto and Hitman?

At least the 3 year old never goes out and drinks himself stupid, etc.
