Imagine my surprise this morning when I read an Op-Ed piece in the local newspaper regarding a Catholic Woman Hating organization promoting the boycotting of the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.
What the fuck? The Catholic are pro-breast cancer. Now I know they are one of the major forces of superstition based misogyny and take the inferiority of women as a core belief. That they do not thing women should have reproductive freedom and all that but organizing a boycott of the ubiquitous Pink Ribbon. Tell mehey aren’t serious.
Why that is akin to being pro-breast cancer and I had a hard time believing that even Catholics would stoop that low.
But according to the following op-ed piece that is pretty much what they have done.
Norman Roberts: A pro-life Catholic supports Komen
11:54 AM CDT on Friday, May 29, 2009
As a committed pro-life advocate, I find myself in an awkward dispute with the Catholic Pro-Life Committee, an organization I normally support. You see, I am also an enthusiastic supporter of Susan G. Komen for the Cure, a group that does a great deal of good in raising money and advocating for research, prevention, early detection and treatment of breast cancer. I was recently dismayed to learn the Pro-Life Committee is cooperating in a scandalous campaign to discourage Catholic support for Komen.
Susan G. Komen’s big sin was giving money to Planned Parenthood, an organization that does far more for women’s health than provide abortions and birth control.
But the Catholic Church has never been long on empowering women and this is not the first nor will it be the last outrage perpetrated in the name of the invisible imaginary sky daddy
