Graglia against Feminism: 17

A continuing series; see here for the introduction, and here for more on feminism in the Catholic Church in the UK.

From Domestic Tranquility, p193.
...denial of female preciousness well serves feminist goals. If women think of themselves and their children as precious, they will not as easily leave their children in surrogates care, make sacrifices in their family life, and develop a hard competitive edge--all prerequisites of success in the very demanding and often high-aggression-level careers that the women's movement encouraged women to pursue in competition with men and childless women. It was to erode their feelings of preciousness--to bring them down from their pedestals, as it were, and make them fungible with males--that the movement encouraged them to adopt male sexual patterns, to view abortion as a necessary and acceptable component of their equality, and to declare themselves willing to be drafted and endure the horrors of combat service with the rapes, injuries, and deaths this service entails.

Pope Leo XIII's Prayer to St Michael

Holy Michael, Archangel, defend us in the day of battle. Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the power of God, thrust down to Hell Satan, and all wicked spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen
