I've been thinking about the imprisoned Moslem girl who is the occasion of so much wailing and gnashing from some. Imagine the impression made on her by a man who is not
so enslaved by his own lust that he insists that she be made invisible ... a man who can treat her as a human being, a soul beloved by God, a sister (or more like a granddaughter, perhaps ;-), in all purity.
Imagine the impression on a Christian or Jewish woman of a man who isn't enslaved by lust, but can treat her as a human being, instead of projecting his desires onto her. In any religion, the rules about keeping women separate or hidden are occasioned by men's lust. One can understand why quite a few men (and some confused women) are getting in a tizzy and thinking evil of Pope Francis. Projection.
