Posts tagged: Pelvic theology
In my theology classes, I learned the term “pelvic theology.” It's used when (allegedly) celibate priests, bishops, cardinals and popes in the Roman Catholic church try to control women's bodies, especially in the reproductive area.
Today, this news item from CathNewsUSA website:
Toledo Catholic Bishop Leonard Blair has banned parishes and parochial schools from raising funds for the Susan G. Komen Foundation, citing concerns that the global anti-cancer giant may someday fund embryonic stem-cell research.
Unbelievable that he would come out against an organization that saves lives.
I always hold the hope that someday Catholic women who run parishes and make up most of its employees would go on a one-month strke over pelvic theology nonsense such as this. Parish life would fall apart and then the priests and bishops would really have things to worry about, other than controlling women's bodies.
