I find Archbishop Thomas Wenski’s remarks about respect for women disconcerting. (Catholics can’t pick and choose teachings, Oct. 28)
He states if women are permitted to practice artificial contraception, men will respect them less.
How much does the male -dominated Catholic Church respect women now? Enough to allow them to participate in all the ministries of the church? No. Enough to control their health choices? Yes.
He may be confusing control with respect.
That’s one reason to pick and choose.
