Late last month, Archbishop Braulio Rodriguez Plaza of Toledo decided to address the topic of domestic violence in a sermon. Which sounds like a great idea, not least of all since it’s been reported that at least 50 Spanish women died as a result of domestic violence last year.
The great idea remained just that, though, since the sermon itself was a disaster. As far as Rodriguez Plaza was concerned, the issue largely came down to two things:
(1) There aren’t enough “true” marriages out there.
(2) There’s too much independence among women.
