Pope: Feminism is "Machismo in a Skirt"

Timothy Birednow

A stopped clock is right twice a day. In this instance, Pope Francis finally gets something right.

From Breitbart:

The pope’s off-the-cuff remarks came in response to an address by Dr. Linda Ghisoni, the undersecretary of the laity section of the Vatican’s Department of Laity, Family, and Life. Dr. Ghisoni delivered her remarks to the participants in a major Vatican summit on clerical sex abuse.

"Listening to Dr. Ghisoni, I heard the church talk about herself,” the pope said. "That is, we all spoke about the church, in all interventions. But this time it was the church herself that spoke.”

"It is not just a matter of style,” Francis continued, "the feminine genius is reflected in the church that is a woman. Inviting a woman to speak is not shifting into the mode of an ecclesiastical feminism, because in the end every feminism ends up being machismo with a skirt.”

"Woman is the image of the church that is woman, she is married, she is mother,” the pontiff said, which is why Catholics refer to the Church as mother, rather than as an organization or a union.

"It is not a question of giving more functions to women in the Church – yes, this is good, but this does not solve the problem – it is about integrating women as a figure of the church into our thinking. And also thinking of the church with the categories of a woman,” the pope concluded.

He's correct; feminism is a form of female bullying. It's not about protecting or empowering women so much as female supremacism. And it is about radical leftism, socialism, the whole nine yards. I am shocked this Pontiff recognizes it.
