Stick to your guns with these wacky women! Be strong!
You’re popular around here.....that’s all that matters ;-)
Bishop Paul Loverde, Diocese of Arlington, VA
I like Tepper's books but they are most definitely not for kids.
In writing that particular book she departed from her usual style and got really, really preachy. More along the lines of Marion Zimmer Bradley (who is a truly awful and predictably feminist/lesbian writer who is unreadable because she spends so little time on dialogue and character development and at least 10 pages every chapter on stating in exhaustive detail her crazy theories.) Probably some buddy on the PP board persuaded Tepper to write it.
The take-away from "Gate to Women's Country", however, is that it doesn't work. Everyone involved is miserable. The straw man of the evil neighboring "Christian" polygamists is completely transparent, so it doesn't really function as a contrast. The bio-engineering is a dismal failure, and the idea that violence can somehow be broken down genetically into "violence we like" and "violence we don't like" is absurd. And of course it's all based on a lie. All children are artificially conceived in a lab - sex is fruitless.
All in all not one of Tepper's typical books (I think she was trying to take the selective breeding idea to a logical extreme) and not particularly successful. Prefer her True Game series, which is not so heavy-handed.
It figures that the loons at the Girl Scouts would take the least successful, most atypical book from a pretty good SF writer and run with it. I bet their reading list also includes Marion ZB and Mercedes Lackey - another feminist/lesbian idiot.
True. But the mothers of girls don’t understand the evil of Marxism which is at the heart of this feminism and lesbian movement-—both a product of Communists.
This egalitarianism wants to destroy the differences between male and female-—to destroy the nuclear family—and all biological relationships. It teaches hatred of not only men and boys-—but hatred of self==the design of a woman’s body—the fact that they give birth and not men, is at the root of their extreme anger at God.
It is a rejection of God and a rejection of their feminine traits-—they want women to think like godless Marxists and destroy the natural family—that necessary unit for emotionally sound and independent children who have positive role models and love both men and women-—because they learn to love both their mothers and fathers in healthy family relationships.
No healthy family unit and they will not learn to love both men and women.
Don’t worry, they’ll get over it.
Diocese of Arlington (VA), Loverde. Knowing St. Tim’s, I’d be willing to bet IT deserves all the credit. It’s had a succession of very conservative pastors, all of whom support a conservative, successful elementary school.
Perhaps Bishop Loverde is moving rightward as he ages. I am shocked that he did something this right. Good for him.
Yahoo, don’t allow these innocent girls to be indoctrinated by PP on Church property!
Good call - thumbs up.
From what I hear (may be unfounded) the Girl Scouts have become radicalized anyway.
