The ‘Religious’ Feminist Attack on Christianity

Subverting the rules, perverting liturgies.


A few years ago, I stood outside Philadelphia’s Cathedral Basilica of Saints Peter and Paul, talking to Regina Bannan of the Southeastern Pennsylvania Women’s Ordination Conference (SPWOC).

A steady rain has just ended, so the fifteen or so (mostly) female protestors who celebrate their version of the Mass (think major liturgical innovation) outside the cathedral every Holy Thursday and Ordination Day (when the Archdiocese of Philadelphia ordained men to the priesthood) are huddled near the entrance of a coffee shop comparing notes.

Some of the participants are wearing collapsible rain hats that somehow remind me of old Katherine Hepburn movies.

The small turnout was a public embarrassment, enough to make me feel a little sorry for the protesters. I felt this despite the fact that whenever women ascend to great heights in Protestant denominations, the denomination in question soon became reflective of the secular culture in terms of equity and all things progressive.

We’ve seen this in the Episcopal Church with its growing stable of women priests and bishops that usually comes gift-wrapped with the “obligatory” baggage of theological innovation and political progressivism.

This baggage is essentially the reversal of centuries-old orthodoxies.

For some reason, the infusion of the feminine into places of power in Christianity almost always heralds change, innovation, and a turn towards the radical.

This is manifested in many ways, be it BLM banners draped over church doors or around altars, or language purges directed at sacred scripture that give us gender neutral forms of address, such as phrases like Mother God or Goddess. It also comes with the belief that ‘the patriarchy’ is evil because it has caused women nothing but pain over the centuries.  

This tendency to deconstruct, innovate and radicalize has become a hallmark of women's feminist clergy.  

The Association of Roman Catholic Women Priests (ARCWP), to which Bannan belongs, has been “ordaining” Catholic women to the “priesthood” since 2020 – when 7 women were “ordained” to the priesthood by a rogue (anonymous) Roman Catholic bishop.

In their liturgies—or “Masses”—which can be viewed on YouTube, one can see the reshaping of prayers and the rewriting of traditional rituals that may involve holding hands in a circle (invoking a WICCA-like atmosphere), as well as the incorporation of peace and social justice litanies that could have been written by the DNC.

A photograph of a famous 2012 case involving a 92-year old Jesuit priest who celebrated “Mass” with a woman “priest” in Georgia shows an altar table draped in a white sheet littered with slogans like “Lay Empowerment,” “End Racism,” and “Open Communion.” This is the modus operandi of feminist clergy: social justice as a form of religious dogma as well as looking to non-Christian traditions to formulate a new (feminist) theology.

According to Bannan, counting the number of people who showed up in the rain to support ARCWP as indicative of the lack of support for women priests would be a misnomer since at least two thirds of Catholics believe that women should be ordained.

Two-thirds seems to be a hefty majority, so much so that I wondered why some of the hundreds of people packed inside the cathedral celebrating the traditional ordination of six men weren’t out supporting the protesters.  

I asked Bannan about this apparent disconnect.

“I think it’s because of the condemnations from the Vatican,” she said.

“If you are going to be somebody out in your parish supporting women’s ordination, you may engender some difficulty. This happened in the distant past when a choir director was laid off partially because she was a very active member of our group.”

Yet opposition in the Church to women’s ordination is significant despite the two-thirds vote of confidence from the faithful.

Writing in The New Oxford Review, Anne Barbeau Gardiner argues that,

“While some feminists have argued that Jesus was conforming to cultural expectations in choosing only men as His Apostles. On the contrary, Jesus’ way of acting did not conform to the religious and cultural norms of first century Judaism. He taught women openly, had them in his company and disregarded ritual-purity laws. Therefore, he could have chosen women, but freely chose not to.”

Additionally, Metropolitan Hilareon Alfeyev, a theologian and bishop in the Russian Orthodox Church, explains,

“…If the priesthood for women had been possible it would have been introduced at the earliest stage of the Church’s existence. But this did not happen. Up to the present day the Church has maintained the same order as was set by the Apostles.

“The fact that women became equal to men in many spheres of human life, including politics, has nothing to do with the church order. In order to introduce female priesthood we need a new Revelation as powerful as the Revelation of the New Testament, and the creation of a New Testament Church. Since such a Revelation has not happened, we cannot make any radical changes to the established church order.”

At some point during the ARCWP demonstration, Bannan handed me a red pamphlet containing the words from the casual table liturgy that was just celebrated by a woman.

These words stood out:  “We re-commit ourselves to proclaim your Gospel of Liberation and Equality, for we are all created in your most amazing image.”

This is certainly not a prayer I would hear in my Russian Orthodox parish of Saint Michael the Archangel in Northern Liberties, despite the fact that feminist, progressive ideology has even made inroads into Orthodoxy in the form of feminist-led church councils, a popular blog called Public Orthodoxy, a Facebook group called Progressive Orthodoxy, as well as in the work of progressive Orthodox theologians connected with (the Jesuit) Fordham University in New York.

In Orthodoxy, the work of the French Orthodox theologian Elisabeth Behr-Sigel (1907– 2005) has become a reference for affirming women in the priesthood. Since 2005, a number of (now deceased) male Orthodox theologians have registered their support for Behr-Siegel’s position, including Metropolitan Anthony Bloom, Kallistos Ware and John Zizioulas.

Orthodoxy, then, with this fresh injection of feminist thought, is merely a couple of light years behind the Roman Catholic Church. The future will reveal whether the Orthodox Church– the Church that prides itself on being the bedrock of unchanging tradition– will change in order to meet the demands of the secular world.

Feminism in the Orthodox Church is clearly seen in the call for women deacons, even though this is based on the mistaken notion that there were deacons in early Eastern Christianity. While there were women who were sometimes referred to as “deaconesses” in the Eastern Church, they did not serve at the Liturgy and had no liturgical function whatsoever, but rather concentrated on women’s modesty issues during Baptism rituals.

Yet today’s Orthodox feminists like to pretend that the so-called deaconesses of old participated in liturgical rites.

Bannan envisions a future Catholic Church in which every manner of liturgy, traditional, innovative, feminist or Novus Ordo, would be given its due under the Big Tent of Universal Catholicism.

The phrase, “the big tent of universal Catholicism” falls flat on its face when one considers the anti-Traditional politics of the present papal administration.

Consider ARCWP’s newsletter, EqualwRites, which is billed as a Catholic Feminist newsletter for women and men.

The overall tone of EqualwRites tends to be strident and political. A few years ago, one could find many hostile references to former President Trump within its pages.

A column written after the worst of the pandemic by a female priest activist, Eileen Difranco, described a visit to the Philadelphia Archdiocesan administration building.  

“The clerics even go without masks in the administration building. Two members of SEPAWOC were shocked when they were received at the archdiocesan office by a maskless Archbishop (Archbishop Nelson Perez) and his maskless secretary. In late January, the Archbishop removed the Jesuit pastor of Old St. Joseph’s Parish for having the common sense and loving kindness to refuse to open his church during a pandemic which has killed over 450,000 post-natal souls.”

Two things stand out here:

1. For better or worse, a church needs to be open during a pandemic, not closed.
2. Archbishop Perez is to be commended for his dismissal as pastor of Old Saint Joseph’s.

As for the columnist’s shock that unmasked clerics in the Cathedral of SS Peter and Paul were “telling people to remove their masks as they approach the altar to receive communion,” I’ve only one thing to say: If you want Dixie cups, go to Rita’s Water Ice stand.

Another edition of EqualwRites condemns a number of male Catholic saints such as Padre Pio, Jerome, John Vianney, John Paul II and Augustine.

But the special feminist vindictive is reserved for Augustine.

“…A man who used and abused many women for sex until he got religion and discovered that women were even too revolting for that. That man was Augustine and the myth was original sin, a made-up sin so pernicious that it permeated all of humanity and spread through the sexual relations he once could not live without. He, the great Augustine, could not be responsible for his sex addiction. It was those darn women who caused men, who were otherwise holy, to sin through lust.”

And here’s this same female priest on abortion:

“The language of suffering has been written into the language of the anti abortion movement with the help of churchmen.”

Bannan told me she was optimistic about the future of women’s ordination.

“I think there are many people in the Church who believe in women’s equality, and I believe that some change is inevitable. It may not happen in my lifetime, but it might. But this is definitely the correct movement inspired by the Holy Spirit, I believe, so I think it will happen.

Bannan, at least, said “Holy Spirit” whereas most feminists including those who call themselves Christians tend to say “Spirit,” which of course can refer to any spirit—the spirit of Baphomet, Bael, Beelzebub, Aleister Crowley, or those strange WICCA circles where the women priests hold hands and sing “Kumbaya.”

During the first sessions of the Roman Catholic Synod on Synodalty, liberal nuns wholeheartedly embraced the cause of a female diaconate, with some even seeking the elimination of titles reserved for clergy, such as “your eminence” or “your excellency,” which they saw as promoting clericalism and patriarchy.

As for Pope Francis, he wants more female theologians and recently made his views known regarding this when addressing a theological conference in Rome.

“There is something I don’t like about you, if you excuse my honesty,” he said to the 30-plus theologians in the room where there were also only five women.

“We need to move forward on this! "Women have a way of reflecting on theology that is different from us men,” he added.

Mother Goddess’ is certainly different. And so is a Pachamama thrown in for good measure.

Nebraska Democrat With Transgender Son in Hysterical Rant Against Republicans Trying to Protect Children

Megan Hunt becomes the first openly LGBTQ person elected to the legislature


Freedom From Religion Foundation Co-President Dan Barker and Director of Governmental Affairs Mark Dann speak with Nebraska state Sen. Megan Hunt. Hunt is openly atheist and bisexual and was the first openly LGBTQ person elected to the Nebraska legislature.

Nebraska Needs Comprehensive Sex Education

QUOTE: "My testimony at the State Board of Education hearing on the framework for K-12 health education in our state. The second draft of the standards was released in July and is a complete departure from what medical experts, education professionals, and decades of research clearly demonstrate is effective health education. The second draft significantly weakens the inclusion of medically accurate and age-appropriate essential elements—STD and pregnancy prevention, sexual orientation, gender identity, consent, and diverse family structures—resulting in a complete departure from what medical experts and decades of research clearly demonstrate is effective health education. By removing these topics, the second draft fails to align with not only best practices in the health education field but also the State Board of Education’s own Nondiscrimination and Equitable Educational Opportunities in Schools Position Statement, which states that all students should be “known, heard and supported.” The opposition wants us to teach values, but just their values. However, that is not the role of a public school system, and we have 304,000 children to keep safe, alive, and thriving. Research shows that medically and scientifically accurate sex education decreases the number of teen pregnancies, decreases the incidence of abortion, and delays the average age when students begin engaging in sexual activity."

Nebraska Legislature: Sen. Megan Hunt speaks about gender-affirming care

Sen. Megan Hunt addresses a would-be ban on gender-affirming care for minors in Nebraska. She revealed on the floor that her son is transgender and plans to filibuster the bill and other bills to keep it from passing.

We Cannot Codify Hate in Our State Laws

QUOTE: "LB574, introduced by Senator Kathleen Kauth, represents an extreme government intrusion into the private lives of families. Lawmakers have no place in legislating healthcare or discriminating against LGBTQ+ youth. We cannot enshrine this lack of safety into our laws which will only contribute to higher levels of suicide, substance abuse, and physical abuse."

Nebraska Democratic state Sen. Megan Hunt is on a crusade. And she wants everyone to know it.

Hunt has decided to filibuster the last two and a half months of the Nebraska legislative session to block the passage of a bill that would prevent “gender-affirming care” for minors. Listening to Hunt, who has a transgender “son,” you might think the GOP was planning mass murder.

The bill would ban gender surgeries and the prescription of hormones to minors. But for Hunt and other Nebraska Democrats, the bill is going to murder children.

“I will burn the session to the ground over this bill,” warned state Sen. Machaela Cavanaugh.

Hunt and her colleagues were just getting warmed up.

“If this bill passes, all your bills are on the chopping block, and the bridge is burned,” Hunt warned the chamber.

“We have made it clear that this is the line in the sand,” Hunt said to lawmakers on Thursday.

“People have said, ‘What if we go after your bills? What if we put a bunch of bills introduced by progressives up on the agenda? Are you going to filibuster those, too?’ Yes, because we’re not like you,” Hunt explained. “We have a principle and a value that actually matters that much to us that we’re willing to stand up for.”

Are we allowed to look at such nobility, such greatness in the eye? Perhaps we should have the Republicans in the Nebraska legislature knee-walk into the chamber while averting their gaze?

Apparently not.

“Don’t say hi to me in the hall, don’t ask me how my weekend was, don’t walk by my desk and ask me anything. Don’t send me Christmas cards ― take me off the list,” Hunt warned. “No one in the world holds a grudge like me, and no one in the world cares less about being petty than me. I don’t care. I don’t like you.”

Oh, sure. I’ll take her name off my Christmas card list right away, you bet.

The topper may have come when another Democratic female legislator broke down in tears after reading a letter from a psychologist.


On Wednesday, Day cried in the chamber while reading a letter from a psychologist who said the bill “will result in the deaths of transgender and gender diverse adolescents, likely before the end of the school year.”

“I want all of you to go into the rotunda and look into the eyes of those parents and tell them that you’re voting for this bill knowing that it could potentially kill their child,” Day said with tears.

Sen. John Fredrickson, the first openly gay man elected to the Nebraska Legislature, also cried in the chamber before reading a letter from a constituent who said that without gender-affirming care, her son would likely have taken his own life as a teenager.

Just as an aside: there is no evidence that “gender-affirming care” improves the mental health of children. Teens are usually suffering from comorbidities unrelated to gender dysphoria and are still at risk even if they receive treatment.

But inconvenient facts like that can be ignored in service to the greater good. The fact is, Megan Hunt is a new kind of radical nutcase. A small-minded, bitter, closed-off white woman. If I were the Nebraska child services, I would investigate her to determine how much she influenced her “son’s” gender dysphoria.

This is a woman looking for a cause, and she has apparently found it.

The FDA KNEW: 44% of pregnant women miscarried following covid vaccination but shots were given emergency authorization anyway



Republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, & research purposes.

(Natural News) In making the decision to grant emergency use authorization (EUA) to Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) “vaccines,” the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) knew full well at the time that nearly half of all pregnant women would end up miscarrying as a result of the injections.

The latest Pfizer document drop shows that 44 percent of all pregnant women who participated in Pfizer’s mRNA (messenger RNA) jab trials ended up losing their unborn babies. To the FDA, this still constitutes a “safe and effective” drug. (Related: A Wisconsin doctor who worshipped covid injections suffered a miscarriage after getting hers.)

After these women lost their children, Pfizer tried to claim that the deaths had nothing to do with its shots. The FDA apparently took Pfizer’s word for it and proceeded to authorize, and later approved, the injections as a remedy for the Fauci Flu.

The thousands upon thousands of pages of documents that Pfizer and the FDA tried to conceal for 75 years demonstrate a shocking pattern of intentional deceit by the two entities. Both Pfizer and the FDA have been working overtime to try to withhold the truth from the public – but that truth is now coming out.

Big Pharma and the FDA are LIARS

Unfortunately for the millions of women who already took the jabs, the damage is already done. Many have already learned the hard way that Operation Warp Speed is really just Operation Death Speed, including for unborn babies.

The women who participated in the Pfizer trial all took between one and four injections of Pfizer’s mRNA concoction. Forty-two received the drug immediately while eight received a placebo initially followed by the real drug later.

By March 31, 2021, all of the pregnant women in the trial – 50 in total – had taken at least one dose of Pfizer’s BNT162b2 experimental injection. The following explains how Pfizer knowingly hid the disastrous results.

“Pfizer notes the miscarriages as serious adverse events (SAEs) with ‘moderate’ (2) or ‘severe’ (3) toxicity ratings. However, all the miscarriages were reported as being unrelated to the trial vaccine – i.e., having ‘Other’ causes – and marked as ‘Recovered/resolved’ adverse effects. To reiterate, not only does Pfizer deny any vaccine-related causality and assert the losses of life had other causes, but it also categorizes losing a baby as a ‘resolved adverse effect’ – like a headache that went away.”

In other words, the loss of a pregnancy is just collateral damage – a “side effect” that quickly got “resolved” once the babies died. This is how Pfizer operates, by the way: just hide the truth, recategorize it, or flat-out lie about it – and the FDA does the exact same thing.

By April 1, the FDA was fully aware of the fact that a “significant percentage” of pregnant women who get jabbed for the Fauci Flu suffer “abortion spontaneous.” Even so, the agency proceeded to do nothing, allowing many more pregnant women to take the shots.

The FDA “failed in its duty to study the data and investigate what basis Pfizer had for marking the fetal deaths as unrelated to the vaccine and having ‘Other’ causes,” reports explain.

The FDA also failed to at least tell the public that there is a serious risk involved for unborn babies who are exposed to covid shots via their mothers. Without that information, notes the Daily Clout, “women were not able to give informed consent for receiving Pfizer’s mRNA COVID vaccine.”

To say that the FDA failed implies that it simply made a mistake, which is not the case. The corrupt federal agency lied on behalf of Pfizer by withholding the truth from the public, which is a crime against humanity as well as a dereliction of duty.
