I went to the Women’s Club meeting last night at my Church (Catholic, of course.) Thirteen years ago, I joined. Stopped going to the meetings about 8 years or so ago. I always pay my dues though. (It’s only 20 dollars and then I get a copy of the minutes, etc. and can keep up with what they are doing in case I want to go back.) Most of the time in the past 8 years, I went to the first meeting of the year and paid my dues in person. However, last night was the first time I went to a first meeting in two years. They have all new officers, so I thought it might be different. So, I went.
And, it started out fine. One of the past presidents did a wonderful program on why we should and do make the Sign of the Cross. We all got to read one of the 21 reasons and as we went around the room to read, the whole thing began to fall apart. So, we are talking about our worship of a Triune God. (Get it, right? Father, Son and Holy Spirit. In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.) Couldn’t get any plainer. Then someone, who should know better, reminded us that a wonderful Muslim woman told her that we all pray to the same God. WOW! NO WE DON”T. What doesn’t this good Catholic woman not understand about a Triune God? Of course, since I wouldn’t be coming back to the meetings the rest of the year, I let it pass. Someone else can deal with her delusion
That wasn’t all. They pass a jar around for donations to the Madonna Fund. This fund used to provide locally for mothers with small children who needed financial help. Last night, I found out that the Madonna Fund is given to the Catholic Relief Services (CRS) for use overseas. Since 98% of CRS employees give to pro-abortion candidates during an election and CRS also promotes contraception and abortion overseas, I could never give to the Madonna Fund again.
It’s never easy for me to go to a Catholic organization’s meeting, when it espouses positions that aren’t Catholic. (sigh)
Maybe next year?
