Fran's Friday Forum...CHRISTIAN Feminism...!!!

I am an Italian American Catholic male...I  believe in feminism...With three daughters and four granddaughters, each of whom I love specially and dearly, how could I NOT be a feminist...???

My purpose for writing this post is to beg some prominent CHRISTIAN FEMINISTS to come forward and boldly make a case for the difference between SECULAR FEMINISM which tears apart the moral fabric of a true Judeo Christian society, and REAL CHRISTIAN FEMINISM which espouses conservative Christian family values, virtue, and morality...

As the French would say...VIVA LA DIFFERENCE...!!!

We have an upcoming election where it appears that the ‘FEMALE VOTE’ may be the swing vote that ultimately determines who’s agenda will be carried out both in the White House and both halls of Congress...!!!

Now is the time for all good women to come to the aid of their country...!!!

Without throwing support to any specific candidate, TRUE FEMINISTS need to support the men who are campaigning as candidates for our next president...!!!

True feminism draws the lines of demarcation clearly to divide selfishness from selflessness...!!! True feminists are ‘othercentered’...secular feminists are ‘selfcentered’...!!! True feminists are ‘partners in progress’...secular feminists seek to promote themselves and their ‘godless’ agendas...!!!

AGAIN, my intention for writing these thoughts is not to speak for others or put my opinions on the lips of others, but rather to elicit from the many strong, wise, intelligent, and caring women who I have either personally known, or whose writings or views I have become acquainted with, to provide personal witness that Christian Feminism is more mainstream in America than the secular feminism we see portrayed by the media...

Several years ago when the debate about STEM CELL RESEARCH was in the mainstream, secularists and the media portrayed the CATHOLIC CHURCH as being opposed to STEM CELL RESEARCH...that was then, and is now, far from the truth...What the church was opposed to was ‘EMBRYONIC STEM CELL RESEARCH’ which was a disguised form of abortion...BTW, that type of research has never brought about any positive medical results, while ADULT STEM CELL RESEARCH (very much encouraged by The Church), has shown many positive health care results...!!!

The secularists and the media are trying to do the same thing today by their attempt to cloak in the word ‘CONTRACEPTION’ a negative blanketing of The Catholic Church’s real teaching...Under their use of the word ‘CONTRACEPTION’ are included abortifacients (drugs and appliances which do not prevent conception, but cause the fetus to be aborted AFTER CONCEPTION has taken place)...there is much more to this topic...

The Catholic Church has not changed its teaching on these matters, while, at the same time our government seems to be drifting away from our first amendment rights of freedom to worship and other freedoms...!!!

A sincere look at the Papal Encyclical ‘HUMANAE VITAE’, on Human Life, written in the 1960’s clearly restates The Church’s official position on these matters...For a brief summary for those with little time to read this, CLICK HERE...!!!

I believe that the majority of American women are God fearing, life loving, selfless, nurturing, and wise citizens of our beloved Country, and I encourage them to come forth and make themselves heard in this all important debate at this critical time in our nation’s history...!!!

HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND...!!!

UPDATE: I discovered this letter on Saturday morning while perusing The National Catholic Register...CLICK HERE...!!!

Fran, I live in a house full of females who all love the Lord and always seek to do what is right before him.

What an excellent post this is.

Mike,

Your daughters and mine should be the type of females that society emulates, but the media presents us with a feminism that actually detests our kind of females...thus, how can they be TRUE FEMINISTS...these feminists emulate Sodom & Gomorrah rather than Nineveh...!!!

Thanks,   Fran

Let us hope your feminists vote in huge numbers this election. We need to work back towards the values our country was founded on.

Than,

That's my concern. The President already has certain voting blocks locked in, unions, African Americans, the media, handout receivers, etc...And he's working hard on 'WOMEN'...!!!

Thanks,   Fran

Fran, I swim in the estrogen ocean in my house and they would all agree with you 100%. I was wondering if you caught Piers Morgan's interview with Ron Paul last evening. I saw about 2 minutes of it but enough to hear him trying to trip the congressman on his civil liberties stance and yet opposes Abortion rights for women. Paul explained it this way, as a moral issue, why is it homocide if a woman kills her baby 1 second after birth but her right when killing it a second before it's delivered? He went on to explain it's just about the money and is a moral issue not a woman's right to murder. I had not heard him come out that strongly about abortion before even though I knew he was Pro Life.

We also heard in church this week (Lou Engle of The Call was visiting) that the tide on the abortion issue is going to start turning when we, the church, start offering a soft place to land to those women who for some reason or another chose to abort their babies and wash them clean of their shame that many secretly carry around. They will start coming out of the wood work to repent and be restored. Our pastor's wife got right up and confessed to having an abortion after a rape 40 years ago and if she had heard much of what was being preached that day in church before making her decision, she most likely would have made a different one. There wasn't a dry eye in the house!

Bob & Bonnie,

We have many ministries already in our Church (Silent No More, Rachel's Vineyard, etc.) which cater to supporting those who have had abortions...including MEN who have acquiesced...!!!

Ultimately THE TRUTH always comes out, and sets people free...!!!

I did not hear the interview you mentioned, but Dr. Paul makes a very valid point...!!! I did see an interview with Rick Santorum in which Sen. Santorum refused to separate his faith from his politics...with him it's Faith First and Family...He probably won't win the nomination, but I admire him for his Christian Witness...!!!

Thanks,   Fran

It is rather a shame that sound bites rule the air waves. It is tiring to listen to. I am not sure whether you are contrasting caring people with selfish people. So I do not think gender matters

Charlie,

Yes, unfortunately we have become a nation of sound bytes...!!! What irritates me is when the media portrays the opinions of a select few to represent with a broad brush the opinions of all...they do it by separating us into classes...race...gender...ethnicity...religion...etc...!!!

True Christianity does not condone this type of behavior...!!!

Thanks,   Fran
