Senator Barbara Boxer, Hero of the Nation-Reading, Catholic-Hating Left

Deal Hudson writes at InsideCatholic on the anti-Catholic screed contained in a recent column by Nation's Katha Pollitt:
... In Pollitt's eyes Sen. Brownback was the villan and Sen. Boxer the heroine in the controversy over the Senate resolution to honor Benedict XVI during his visit. Boxer objected to the resolution observing that the Pope witnessed "to the value of each and every life."

Pollitt hoists the pro-abortion Catholic Boxer
[ED.: Boxer is Jewish, not Catholic.] high upon her shoulders for ripping this horrible thought out of the language celebrating the Holy Father.

More important, however, than anything Pollitt says is how she says it.
If it was up to Benedict, we might be more stylish than the plural wives of the FLDS, but we'd be trapped in marriage and have fifteen children just like them.
(emphasis added)

Never been impressed by Katha Pollitt's columns. Far too much oversimplification, to say the least.

As the Bishop of Peoria said at the confirmation of my twin sons last Sunday, there are a lot of people out there who hate the Catholic Church and hate the teachings of Christ.

clarification: Boxer is jewish, not catholic.

Yes, she is Jewish. I'm not sure where Hudson got that she's Catholic.

You know, I'm so glad we have these people to point out that this is what my faith does to me. Otherwise I'd never know that I'm "trapped in marriage" and destined to "have fifteen children." Darn. I feel so enlightened now!!
