Several people have compared Amy Barrett, her prayer group, her Catholic faith and the pro-life movement to The Handmaids Tale…
Its offensive and quite frankly shows people’s ignorance of Christianity particularly Catholicism.
The group Amy Barrett was or is a part of has other women as accountability partners in essence they have what Catholics would call Spiritual Directors.
They help each other be better wives and mother’s hardly anything reminiscing The Handmaids Tale in which women are not allowed to work, read scripture, speak publicly, have an opinion, or hold any office of power.
I watched most of the series of The Handmaids Tale it’s not even up for comparison.
The Gilead group is more like the Westboro Baptist Church meets the Fundamental Latter Day Saint Church group seen in Escaping Polygamy.
There’s nothing wrong or extreme with holding to traditional gender roles and marriage roles and it can even be done so in a marriage between two working spouses.
There’s nothing extreme or contrary to upholding traditional marriage.
How people extrapolate that with The Handmaids Tale is just beyond me and really rooted in a hatred of God and a desire to twist Scripture through relativistic thinking as we see with some denominations that condone homosexual unions and abortion.
You either except God and the Truth of God revealed through Sacred Scripture or you don’t religion shouldn’t be some Country Club that you join to make yourself feel better.
The Church is True and is the only gate to salvation to which was entrusted to St Peter and his successors which outside the Church there is no salvation.
Not even Pope Francis can change the deposits of faith no matter what he says or may be mistranslated to have said in an interview he doesn’t have that power.
Our faith is rooted in Christ who is the Living Word of God who is the same today, yesterday, and tomorrow.
The Church acknowledges that homosexuality is of a psychological origin unknown and is intrinsically disordered.
The Church in her wisdom and orthodoxy calls those that are same sex attracted and homosexual to live a chaste and holy life of celibacy.
We don’t think being gay in of itself is a sin as the passions are controlled by the subconscious mind.
We don’t hold to any of the Gilead ideologies and neither does the pro-life movement or Amy Barrett.
I watched the stupid show just to see what the criticism of Amy Barrett was about and it’s an unfair comparison.
