Bishop Ricken Issues Statement Strongly Opposing St. Norbert’s Invite to Gloria Steinem

Heartening.

Bishop David Ricken of the Diocese of Green Bay released a statement today at The Compass News expressing his “strong disapproval” of the decision of St. Norbert College to host pro-abortion rights speaker Gloria Steinem for a presentation this April, as first reported by The Cardinal Newman Society.

How about a strongly worded letter warning the Catholic faithful that the Norbert administration has obviously jumped the shark, and that Catholic parents should consider attending Norbert to be a danger to their kids' faith?

That would be a nice start.

They are doing this because there are NO OTHER speakers on the topic of domestic violence. Men NEVER speak out against it. Catholics obviously dont. Noone does...except radical feminists, who have said wonderfully intelligent things like, marriage only exists to oppress women. ALl sex is rape. The bible was written to oppress women (my favorite because it proves women do not have an ego). So if there were any other person who would ever talk about the topic, I am sure St. Norbert woud seek them out because then they could also align the thought process with Catholic teaching. But sadly there is not....

Sarcasm sign - [ON]

Steinem must needs get her a$$ down and picket the abuser...fraud
