Must be the part where we don't refer to God as a woman.

They say: "Many women will be rightly enraged by the continued deliberate use of non-inclusive language. The Association of Catholic Priests strongly opposes the introduction and use of any texts which will insult and offend women who are at the heart of every Christian community in Ireland."


Bullshit.  Excuse me, but bullshit.  none of those priests are women.  They don't know what they're talking about.  And if there really are women that think this, they need to go over their catechism.  What a deplorably pathetic reason to raise arms against the faith- "non inclusive" language. 

I'm sure there are plenty non-denominationals with folding chairs and kool-aid that would be happy to have them attend self-affirmation services. 

What a load.

Go thy ways, old Jack;
die when thou wilt, if manhood, good manhood, be
not forgot upon the face of the earth, then am I a
shotten herring. There live not three good men
unhanged in England; and one of them is fat and
grows old: God help the while! a bad world, I say.
I would I were a weaver; I could sing psalms or any
thing. A plague of all cowards, I say still.
