About Me

A Catholic who follows Rome & the Magisterium. I'm against gay "marriage", abortion, embryonic stem cell research, euthanasia, human cloning. Altar girls, Communion in the hand, Eucharistic Ministers and "Protestant" music in the Church doesn't bother me at all. A proud American retired submarine sailor. Our borders should be secured with a 10 ft. high fence topped by concertina wire with minefields out to 20 yards on both sides and an additional 10 yards filled with warning signs outside of that Let's get energy independent NOW! Back Israel to the max, stop appeasing followers of the Pedophile Prophet. Pro 2nd Amendment, pro death penalty, Repeal all hate crime legislation. Back the police unless you'd rather call a hippie when everything hits the fan. Get government out of dealing with education, childhood obesity and the enviornment. Stop using the military for sociological experiments and if we're in a war don't micromanage their every move. Kill your television, limit time on the computer and pick up a book. God's will be done and may He have mercy upon us all.

Nobody could write this crap...

Some days there are news stories that just can't be commented on, they're so jaw-droppingly stupid. This is one of those stories;

BRUSSELS, March 18, 2009 ( - Officials of the European Union have issued a booklet for EU Parliamentary staff, saying that the use of "Miss" and "Mrs" for women, as well as such terms as "statesman" and "fireman," are to be banned on the grounds that they are "sexist."

Any honorifics that distinguish between a married and an unmarried woman in any language are to be banned as well, including "Madame" and "Mademoiselle," "Frau" and "Fraulein," "Senora" and "Senorita." Instead, staff are asked not to use any form of honorific and merely to address women by their names.

"Gender-specific" terms, such as "statesman," are to be replaced with gender-free alternatives, such as "political leader."

But not all MEPs are going along quietly with the feminist doctrines. The Scottish Conservative MEP Struan Stevenson called it a case of "political correctness gone mad."

A European Parliament spokesman defended the booklet, saying, "The information is a guideline only and it is intended for staff and not for MEPs. It is particularly useful for translators and interpreters, who are being asked to consider gender-neutral languages when they are translating documents or interpreting MEPs speaking in the chamber."

Since its inception in the early 1960s the imposition of "inclusive language," and particularly the elimination of honorifics that indicate marital status, has been a key issue for the radical feminist movement in the English speaking world. In the US, the movement's flagship publication, founded by feminist icon Gloria Steinem in 1972, was titled "Ms.," an indication of the importance to feminists of the abolition of traditional honorifics.

The Halifax Chronicle Herald mocked the decision in an unsigned editorial, saying it was a throwback to the era of bellbottoms and love beads.

Calling it "politically correct nonsense," the editorial said that the "muddled thinking behind the effort is certainly familiar to many" in heavily politically correct Canada.

"Ensuring men's and women's rights are equal does not mean we have to disinfect language to remove all gender references. Insisting on doing so can actually rob words and phrases of meaning."

Women have been the scourge of mankind since the Garden of Eden, and they haven't let up since.

That sounds sexist! I'm shocked and inflamed and outraged and LOL!!!

Actually, I am so sick of this politically correct stuff I just want to walk up to some woman and call her a girl just to make ME feel better.

I heard on the Bob Burney show a while back some nutcase has even translated the Bible into gender neutral language.

As a woman married for over 35 years, I want the "honorific" showing that I'm married. Sort of like a combat medal. **wink**

Pops, a number of years ago, early 1970's to be exact, I was out shopping. When I was about to enter the store, I noticed a "woman" behind me, so I opened the door and held it open so she could enter before me. She rudely pushed me aside and told me to go "F...." myself and stormed into the store. The best part about it was I was wearing my clerical collar at the time. She didn't know me and I didn't know her (after that, I wouldn't want to know her), so what her basic malfunction was, is beyond me. If I hadn't been a gentleman, I would have given her an attitude readjustment right then and there.
