Not Getting Any? More Bad News

The Vatican announced yesterday that men and women retain their gender in the after-life, but don't get to have sex. In a report issued to Bishops around the world, the Vatican attacked feminism, In stressing that men and women are different, the document said "From the first moment of their creation, man and woman are different and will remain so for eternity." But it said the "temporal and earthly expression of sexuality is transient," and cited Scripture suggesting that a married couple's existence in heaven would be celibate. I guess this means my plan for hooking up with Elle MacPherson are going to need some rethinking.

Feminism gets blamed for making "homosexuality and heterosexuality virtually equivalent, in a new model of polymorphous sexuality." I guess if you want to talk about that kind of thing, the best place to do it is with a bunch of priests in the Vatican. They should know the subject.

Sometimes I get so fed up with people who have to make religion a gender issue - be it men who preach that they are the crown of creation and that women should obey, or feminists who don't pray "Our Father..." because they argue that God must be a woman. Men and women ARE different in many ways, but people are more than their gender. If everyone could just see each other as humans instead of categorizable book covers, I suspect life would be nicer for everyone. But that's a simplification too, of course :)



PS: Too bad about Elle MacPherson... :D
