a director of a Catholic order tasked with rehabilitating the Church’s sex abusers, quoted from Chicago Tribune - Priest’s ecclesiastic missteps treated more sternly than abuse
New documents are out, some going as far back as 1940. If you didn’t hate the Catholic Church enough already—or at least have some serious questions about its validity and integrity—for what is now over half a century of documented, systematic, hypocritical, institutionalized, despicable, and enabling coverups of child sex abuse, I question whether you have a pulse, never mind a heart.
UPS, United Way, the Intel Foundation, and others have all stopped funding for the Boy Scots of America. Now there’s a petition 70,000 strong asking Verizon to do the same.
To give you some context: the Intel Foundation was the biggest donor in 2009 with a $700,000 contribution.
I just found out my wife might soon start making more money than me. As a white, straight, US male, I believe I am supposed to be upset or at least offended, but I have also been told it is ok to even feel threatened. This is all a bit confusing, so I could really use your help.
Are there any resources available for how I can handle this problem? I’m sure there are various ways I can still “keep her down”, as it were, and remind her that she isn’t “as good as I am” in the workforce. I know physical repression is kind of a faux pas these days, but what’s the word on emotional oppression?
Also, how should I approach her about this problem? Is this something I should bring up directly at the dinner table? I’ve heard there can be some success with subtlety and backhanded compliments. I’m not sure which is more my style yet, so any anecdotes you can share would help.
I hope you can understand this is new territory for me, so any advice you have on how I can remind my wife who is still the “breadwinner of this house” would really be appreciated. Thanks!
Great piece that’s worth a read. This is a big discussion, and the answers aren’t easy.
