With all the name calling lately, no one has mentioned that's it's Women's History Month.
Michelle Malkin has also been called a "coconut" (brown on the outside white on the inside), a "Manila whore," and a Subic bay bar girl." And it goes on and on.
Now Keith Olbermann has apologized for his remarks. It feels like we're all back in school with all the name-calling.
In today's Gospel, Jesus tells the story of a "rich man who dressed in purple garments." One of the women who St. Paul worked with in the early days of the church, named Lydia, was a wealthy business woman, "a dealer in purple cloth." (Romans 16:1-16) She was one of the first converts and one of many woman who ministered with St. Paul.
The Catholic Church is seen as a male dominated club that oppresses women, yet Mother Angelica started EWTN with $600. Mother Teresa showed the world how to care for the poor.
Despite name calling and oppression women just soldier on. It's what we do.
