FEMINISM, FEMALE INFERIORITY AND SEXUAL SUICIDE

"Whether because of voluntary birth control, or because of impoverishment of the stock, many Roman marriages at the end of the first and the beginning of the second century were childless...The feminism that triumphed in Imperial times brought more in its time than advantage and superiority. By copying men too closely the Roman women succeeded more rapidly in emulating man's vices than in acquiring his strength." Jerome Carcopino, Daily Life in Ancient Rome.

And from Fr John Hardon S.J.:
"Sexual suicide is sexual liberation that has created a society hostile to the family and the institution of marriage. It is a society that fails to recognize the natural order of the male and female gender. Sexual suicide is the ultimate destination of “feminism”: female inferiority and familiarity and familial disintegration. Sexual suicide is the pollution of a culture by false ideas and misused technology. The result is an erosion of love and family that reduces sex to a form of sexual massage...Sexual suicide is the wide spread virus of radical feminism that has penetrated the culture of so many Western nations."

Women have become sex objects for the pleasure of noncommittal men who no longer feel the responsibility of rearing or financially supporting their offspring. Women who become pregnant and carry their babies to term are left to support the "family" while their children are deprived of a mother and a father. Rather than gaining equality with men and liberation
from men, women have become inferior slaves to men's basest nature---sloth and lust. Suicidal sex will destroy us.

ROTTERDAM AND AMSTERDAM RECOGNIZE MUSLIM POLYGAMY

The West has lost its ability to recognize threats to its own survival. The only explanation for such blindness is sin. "For their own malice blinded them." Wisdom 2:21. "The god of this world hath blinded the minds of unbelievers" 2 Corinthians 4:4.

ROTTERDAM, August 14, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Two Dutch cities have instructed their marriage registrars to recognize polygamous marriages of immigrants that have taken place in countries where having more than one wife is permitted, such as Morocco.

Although polygamy is technically banned in the Netherlands, the marriages of Muslims who have several wives are now recognized by Dutch authorities in the cities of Rotterdam and Amsterdam, reports the Dutch newspaper NRC Handelsblad.

Until now, registrars in the major cities had been recording the irregular marriages of immigrants, but the Central Bureau for Statistics (CBS), where all marriages are registered nationally, has been removing these bigamous or polygamous marriages from its files, on the assumption that administrative errors had occurred, reports NIS News.

The city councils of Amsterdam and Rotterdam have informed the CBS that the marriage records are not a mistake.

CBS researcher Jan Latten told NRC Handelsblad that the CBS would study whether or not to recognize the bigamous and polygamous marriages. "We will now investigate whether this can be regarded as a trend that was previously not recognised. If this is the case, it is our task to report this."

"At present, it is not included in our statistics," Latten pointed out. "In the same way, we delete marriages involving fourteen-year-olds. A man with two wives just cannot exist by law."

CATHOLIC MARRIED COUPLE FIGHTS FOR RIGHT TO BE REFERRED TO AS MARRIED

If homosexuals cannot legally get "married"--they will wage a war of semantics and render any reference to the word "marriage" obsolete. Have you noticed that certain newspapers have begun calling all couples "partners" leaving one guessing if the article is about two females, two males, or a traditional married husband and wife? It reminds me of the feminists' attempt to refer to every woman as "Ms." rather than "Mrs" and "Miss" so as to obfuscate whether or not a woman was "attached" to a man or not. As we all know from the abortion battle semantics is critical in the battle between good and evil--and here is a married Catholic couple in the midst of a legal struggle to be truthfully referred to as MARRIED.

From Scotsman: A Devout Catholic couple who object to their marital status being listed alongside civil partnerships have won the first round in an employment tribunal action against Scotland's largest police force.

Lucille and Frank McQuade, who have been married for 26 years, claim that Strathclyde Police is guilty of religious discrimination after altering its civilian employee records to change their status from "married" to "married/civil partnership".

Speaking after an earlier tribunal hearing, Mrs McQuade, 46, who until recently worked as a CID clerk with the force, said: "The concept of homosexuality is not compatible

A MAJORITY OF FRENCH BIRTHS ARE TO UNWED MOTHERS

France now leads Europe with the highest birth rate at 1.98 children per women--which is well above the European average of 1.52 children per woman. This seemingly good news is greatly tempered however, by the statistics that a majority of the births in France are now to unwed mothers. The once great eldest daughter of the Church is in steep decline along with the rest of her European neighbors. There will never be such a thing as a "Secular Europe"--because with the death of the Faith will come the death of peoples and nations.

Jan. 15 (Bloomberg) -- France became the first non- Scandinavian country in western Europe to record a majority of out-of-wedlock births.

Of the 816,500 births registered in France last year, 50.5 percent were to unmarried parents, up from 48.4 percent in 2006 and 40 percent 10 years ago, according to a report today by Insee, the Paris-based national statistics agency.

``What's led the rise in out-of-wedlock births is that a lifestyle that was once confined to Paris is now the norm even in rural areas,'' Guy Desplanques, head of Insee's demographics department, said in a telephone interview. ``Marriage is no

"MARRIAGE-LITE"--LEGITIMIZING COHABITATION WHILE DESTROYING MARRIAGE

The U.K. Law Commission has recommended giving divorce-style settlement rights to cohabitating couples who split up. The decision was necessitated by the fact that more couples than ever are choosing not to marry.

"Marriage-lite" would apply to couples who have cohabited for at least two years or who have a child together. Couples could choose to opt out of the scheme. Upon splitting up, cohabiting couples would be liable for financial payments and maintenance, similar but not as extensive to divorce settlements.

There are a few who see the light on "marriage-lite":


"A plan to give cohabiting couples greater legal rights is likely to wreck the sanctity of marriage, a Sussex MP has said."

"...MP Nick Herbert said the new "financial remedies" for couples who part company would result in a form of
