More on Pope Francis and women

In the news today, Pope Francis says ... women have a "feminine genius" that helps them discern "unexplored aspects of the unfathomable mystery of Christ." ... Women are "are the strawberry on the cake”.

David Gibson writes on this subject today too - Seven reasons some women wince when Pope Francis starts talking

I think most Catholics don't take this issue very seriously and as David Gibson writes, most see the pope as well intentioned about women and his condescending remarks as just jokes. But insulting people with jokes is merely a way to deflect responsibility for the pain caused .... no one would stand for this if the people he was characterizing in this way were of a racial or ethnic minority. What he's doing is wrong.
