You Would Never Know that March is Women's History Month

With all the name calling lately, no one has mentioned that's it's Women's History Month.

"It's different when Bill Maher calls Sarah Palin a "twat" or the c-word" or when Keith Olbermann calls Michelle Malkin "a mashed-up bag of meat with lipstick on it."

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.
