A Feminist Agenda

I had some time to think today. Somebody at work ordered something incorrectly and a number of us were drafted into manual labor to correct their mistake. It was mind numbing. Not physically demanding. But my brain most definately got a break. So I spent it thinking about this phrase, listed in the prayer bulletin at church yesterday; ‘a feminist agenda’.

What does that phrase mean? Is it code for something else? It was listed along with some other divisive issues (I’m not going to list them, but I’m sure you can figure it out). I was a tad disturbed by the wording of the whole thing.

So I came home and googled the phrase, trying to figure it out, and low and behold I found this quote by Pat Robertson, “Feminism is a socialist, anti-family, political movement that encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians.”

I could make a snarky comment about brushing up on my witchcraft skills and laugh it off. After all, I never was and never will be a fan of Pat Robertson. But in all honesty, the whole thing makes me want to weep.
