Dan Savage, the sexpert behind “The Real O’Neals,” hates Catholicism for its teachings on sexuality, so it was not surprising that the show would slam the Church for not ordaining women. Orthodox Jews and Muslims have no clerical role for women, either, but they don’t count in today’s world of political correctness. Only Catholics qualify for criticism.
How ironic it is that the same week that this show berates Catholicism for not having women priests, the Catholic world is mourning the loss of one of its greatest icons—Mother Angelica. What makes this especially poignant is that she opposed women priests.
