It seems Pope Francis needs to brush up on his Tertullian!

It has been reported (in The ChristLast Media, I must note) that the current Pope does not like the phrase "lead us not into temptation...

"Let no freedom be allowed to novelty, because it is not fitting that any addition should be made to antiquity. Let not the clear faith and belief of our forefathers be fouled by any muddy admixture." -- Pope Sixtus III

Here's a shock: Real women prefer real men.

You see, kiddies, real men don't force people to buy rubbers for other people.

From CNSNews.com:

Women Prefer Santorum to Romney by 10-Point Margin

In a week when much of the national media attention on former Sen. Rick Santorum’s presidential campaign focused on his views on contraception, the Gallup tracking poll showed Santorum’s support among women increasing by 12 points, vaulting him into a 10-point lead among women over former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney.

In fact, Santorum’s support among women in this latest Gallup poll is stronger than his support among men.

In the week of Feb. 13-19, according to Gallup’s presidential primary tracking poll of registered Republican voters and Republican-leaning independents, Santorum led Romney 34 percent to 29 percent among men and 36 percent to 26 percent among women.

I wish it was needless to say, but real men don't wrap their johnsons in plastic, sterilize their women with chemicals, or chop their kids into little pieces.



All the pills, potions, "procedures", and perversions were created by evil cowardly "men" to rob you of your God-given power to civilize them. Don't let them take your femininity.

From Washington's other newspaper:

Rick Santorum winning more support from Republican women

Over the past several weeks, Republicans have watched squeamishly as presidential contender Rick Santorum has waded into multiple controversies that risk alienating half the 2012 electorate: women.

But in fact, Santorum has grown more popular among women while talking about his opposition to abortion, his disapproval of birth control and his view that the federal government shouldn’t pay for prenatal screenings. A new Washington Post-ABC News poll shows not only that Santorum is doing better among GOP women than he was a few weeks ago, but also that he is less unpopular — and also less well known — among Democratic and independent women than his Republican rivals Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich.

Voters and political strategists alike say Santorum’s rise has less to do with his views on these issues than on his ability to relate to the daily struggles of the middle class.

Hee-hee. Who knew refraining from murdering one's kids was a middle class value?

Nonetheless, the former senator from Pennsylvania and the other Republican candidates remain largely untested by the dynamics of a general election in which independent and Democratic women are expected to play a deciding role...


The Post-ABC poll, conducted on the heels of a week of scrutiny of Santorum’s conservative views on a variety of women’s health issues, shows that his popularity among GOP women has moved up 13 points since January, with the biggest bump in the past week, so that 57 percent hold a favorable view. Santorum is now within reach of Romney on that score: Sixty-one percent of Republican women view Romney favorably. Romney has higher negative ratings among GOP women than Santorum does — 28 percent to 18 percent — and those negative ratings of Romney have grown over time...

Double hmmm...

But there is no evidence that Santorum’s position among women in either party has dropped in recent weeks. That is a surprise to some Republicans, who have watched uncomfortably as he has engaged in high-profile discussions about abortion, contraception and prenatal screening.

Much of the talk has centered around past speeches and interviews, in which Santorum declared that birth control doesn’t work and that it “is harmful to women” and the country. He argued that the use of birth control encourages sex outside of marriage, particularly among the young. On abortion, Santorum said that the government should not fund prenatal testing because in the majority of cases when such tests diagnose a disability in the fetus, women choose to abort.

“I’m not a believer in birth control, artificial birth control,” Santorum — who is Catholic and with his wife, Karen, has seven children — said in a 2006 television interview. “I think it goes down the line of being able to do whatever you want to do without the responsibility that comes with it.”

Many Republicans consider contraception a losing debate. Birth control pills were first approved for use in the United States in 1960 and more than 12 million American women use them, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The subject surfaced again during a Republican debate this week. Asked their views on the subject (and briefly booed by an audience that seemed to recognize the perils of the question), the candidates steered away from speaking directly to their positions. Instead, Santorum, Romney and Gingrich sought to characterize the issue as a question of religious freedom — and to accuse President Obama of attacking religious liberties by seeking to mandate that all employers, even religious institutes, cover contraceptives for employees.

“This isn’t an argument about contraceptives,” Romney said. “This is a discussion about, are we going to have a nation which preserves the foundation of the nation, which is the family, or are we not?”

Let's skip ahead to the meat of the story which, as usual, is buried near the end...

Santorum is the only candidate who talks regularly about his family — and even about the price of milk, as he did recently. His campaign, too, has taken pains to cast his policies in a woman-friendly light, issuing a policy statement that describes his mother as the “primary breadwinner” when he was growing up and his wife as a lawyer, nurse and author.

“Rick knows firsthand what it means to run the carpool, pick up the kids from practice, help with homework and drop them off at their friends’ houses, all while trying to get to work on time or home for dinner with the family,” the statement reads.

One Republican strategist who spoke on the condition of anonymity to speak freely said polling data and focus groups of women show that they are less turned off by candidates’ views on women’s health issues than they are by the bickering on the debate stage.

“What I find is that women tend to be remarkably practical in these conversations,” the strategist said. “How is this going to impact the daily lives of myself and my family, at the very practical level?”

That reality creates peril for Obama and Democrats, too — who have tried to frame the discussion about contraception as one that Republicans are driving, but who are doing a lot of the driving themselves.

First of all, the word is SEX, not GENDER. If you are ever tempted to use the word GENDER, don't. The word is SEX! SEX! SEX! SEX! For example: "My sex is male." is correct. "My gender is male." means nothing. Look it up. What kind of sick neo-Puritan nonsense is this? Idiot left-fascists, get your blood-soaked paws off the English language. Hence I am choosing "male" under protest.
