Laudato Si on the Hidden Link Between Caitlyn Jenner, Planned Parenthood and Monsanto

Laudato Si on the Hidden Link Between Caitlyn Jenner, Planned Parenthood and Monsanto June 24, 2015

It is enough to recognize that our body itself establishes us in a direct relationship with the environment and with other living beings. The acceptance of our bodies as God’s gift is vital for welcoming and accepting the entire world as a gift from the Father and our common home, whereas thinking that we enjoy absolute power over our own bodies turns, often subtly, into thinking that we enjoy absolute power over creation. Learning to accept our body, to care for it and to respect its fullest meaning, is an essential element of any genuine human ecology. Also, valuing one’s own body in its femininity or masculinity is necessary if I am going to be able to recognize myself in an encounter with someone who is different. In this way we can joyfully accept the specific gifts of another man or woman, the work of God the Creator, and find mutual enrichment. It is not a healthy attitude which would seek “to cancel out sexual difference because it no longer knows how to confront it”.

    It appears our Pope has turned over the money changers tables on both sides of the political world, and written a completely Catholic document.
    How dare he be so… C-C-C-Catholic!

  • Four line stanzas:

    END TO END

    Fake women, men and bodies

    Fake marriage, sex,
    no babies

    Fake hope, fake
    life, fake speech

    Fake lessons liars
    teach

    Falsehoods of the
    mind

    False, the clever
    blind,

    False, the pleasing
    lie

    They take no life,
    deny

    False, themselves
    they cheat,

    They cripple their own
    feet,

    Straight their falsehoods
    send

    Like arrows end to
    end

    Pope Francis was a little “the jury is still out” on GM foods. He doesn’t seem to think they are immoral per se, but he is concerned about economic exploitation that could result if the Monsatos of the world coerce small farmers.

      The discussion about GMOs was the hardest for me to read because it didn’t take into account how GMOs have helped feed a hungry world (keywords: Norman Borlaug and the Green Revolution). I don’t want anyone pushed out of a job, I’d love to see more local farms… but they are less efficient and even if gluttony ceased tomorrow all the world over, I don’t know that local, small farm production can feed 7 billion mouths today (and more tomorrow).

        And based on my reading, the Pope may agree with you. Anyway the GM food people don’t belong in the same conversation as Planned Parenthood.
