JPII and/vs Feminism In 1949, Simone De Beauvoir wrote The Second Sex as an early argument for pre and post-war feminism, largely influenced by existentialism. It pre-dates Betty Friedan's Feminine Mystique (1963) by about 14 years, and was published in French. The two works together form the catalyst for the worst of feminism today. As for the best of feminism, I specifically have in mind Wojtyla's understanding of female saints of his day, as contemporaries of De Beauvoir, embodying ...

It has come to my attention in recent months, mainly due to the upcoming canonization of Blessed John Paul II, that some suspect him of having invested himself in the heresy of 'modernism' as refuted by St. Pius X in "Pascendi Dominici Gregis".

Editor's note: This post was moved, with Samewise's permission, from the Member Feed.

Together, they spent their elementary and highschool years in Wadowice, only to meet again after the War...

Much like the Divine Physician, John Paul II could diagnose world culture on epidemic proportions. His wise influence helped to topple the iron curtain, calm the storm of feminism and reconcile Jewish/Christian greivances. Like a good doctor, John Paul II had an effective remedy for major societal hurts. A warning he gave to future generations of thinkers, moralists, and policy makers was the danger of solipsism in philosophy. Solipsism...

From sports to writing to philosophizing, JPII covers a lot of leisurely pursuits. But he takes such topics and makes them more accessible to the layman, so that there's no place that the layman can go without JPII having already gone. It's refreshing to know that a man has freed up such a vast array of subjects, so that no one has to wonder whether or not the truth of Jesus can be known, and in being known, set men...
