Oh Jennifer – such a good article. Thank you for writing this, in particular:
“I do not see women who display a blatant disregard for what their Church teaches.
Instead, I see women who love their Catholic faith, and who genuinely desire to live in accordance with its tenets.
I see women who have been bombarded by secular wisdom on human sexuality, yet who have never heard a detailed explanation of their own Church’s beliefs in this area.”
A question delightfully worth pondering:
“Is it possible that in treating children like children – both in the way we dress them and the activities we allow them to pursue – we will better prepare them for a natural, responsible transition to adulthood some day in the future?”
Worth the read, and worth a re-examination of policies that have created this mess.
One of the MANY reasons I am a loyal Southwest customer through and through.
So proud of my faith and it’s representatives who act like this.
This child will have a good home. Pray for the birthmother.
