There are so many things flying around in the world today about ideology, especially when it comes to men and women. Everyone has an opinion!
I admit that I typically do not follow quotes from the pope. I definitely struggle with the institution of the Catholic Church. However, an article today in the Washington Examiner by Luke Gentile had a quote from the pope that should challenge us to think about ideology of gender.
"All humanity is the tension of differences. The question of gender is diluting the differences and making the world the same, all dull, all alike, and that is contrary to human vocation."
Males and Females are different. We are created differently for a reason. Learning how to walk in those differences is not easy. If we were all alike, the world would be dull. God clearly made man and woman different, and found it "good."
Do we need to challenge each other?? Of course... However, we cannot force each other to think just like we do. Men think and act one way. Women think and act another. So many books have been written about the differences between men and women.
I'm tired of everyone trying to be the same. It's time to put aside the ideology that we can all become the same...
Just my wondering thoughts today. I know it's been awhile since I've written something. I said this blog would be about a little bit of everything! This was my thought pondering quote today and I wanted to share it with you.
Love and blessings,
