Is the Catholic church joining Islam in keeping uppity women in line?

Maybe the Catholic Church is going to buy a job lot of wife beater singlets?


Seems there aren’t a lot of Spanish women cooking their men some eggs…when they are told to do it.

A leading archbishop has sparked outrage in Spain by saying that domestic violence occurs because ‘women do not obey men’.

The Archbishop of Toledo Braulio Rodriguez told his congregation that wives could avoid being hit by doing what they are told.

Women could also escape being physically abused by not asking their husbands for a divorce, Rodriguez said.

He told churchgoers in his sermon: ‘The majority of cases of domestic violence happen because the woman’s partner does not accept them, or rejects them for not accepting their demands. ?

‘Or often the macho reaction comes about because she asked for a separation,’ the archbishop said.

The Roman Catholic churchman – who has taken a vow of celibacy – also said many relationship problems occured because the couple were not in a ‘true marriage’, and he criticised the practice of ‘quickie divorces’.

He said: ‘I don’t think our political leaders are worried about divorce figures when they have fought so hard to implement the so-called quick divorce.’

He made the comments during a mass held in Toledo Cathedral on December 27, and they were later published in the Our Father parish bulletin.

Thousands of furious Spanish women have now taken to social media to slam the cleric.

One wrote: ‘The archbishop of Toledo has linked domestic violence to couples not being in a “proper marriage”. So says the celibate man who believes in a ghost.’

Another added: ‘He should be locked up for inciting violence. This idiot should keep his medieval views to himself.’

In 2015, 56 women were killed in Spain because of domestic violence.

More than one million cases of domestic violence have been dealt with by the Spanish courts since 2007, with and judges handing down prison sentences to 148,000 men.

I wonder if Archbishop Braulio Rodriguez is considering a career in politics. With attitudes like that he could hold a senior position in the National Party.

Meanwhile, if you see an uppity women mouthing off, know that her husband is weak and hasn’t disciplined her properly…at least according to one Catholic Archbishop.

Perhaps Jake the Muss could apply to be a Catholic priest.
