Jerome, you ignorance is showing. The women of he Catholic church do more to serve the poor and needy than anyone on the planet.

We should be eaching our young girls to value their sexuality and otherhood - not treat it like a disease.

I was in Rome to receive, as a representative of the United States and "women of the world," a message first delivered by Pope Paul VI at the closing of the Second Vatican Council in 1965.

"Women, you do know how to make truth sweet, tender and accessible; make it your task to bring the spirit of...
