Re: Rosenbilt and Rosa Parkes
Another of the interesting biblical legacies passed on into catholic dogma from Jewish philosophy although not much talked about by priests for obvious reasons.
At one time in catholicism women had to sit nearest the door of the church and furthest away from the altar- there was healthy internal disagreements about whether women should be allowed in churches at all- filthy creatures that they are. Women are regarded as vessels only and that is why they are regarded as uniquely susceptible to being possessed by devils. There was a reason why the possessed child in the Exorcist was a female adolescent...
The remnants of this still exist in the tradition of 'churching' women who have given birth as women are regarded as 'polluted' by childbirth until 'churched'.
Much of this is a hangover from extremist Jewish dogma in christianity.
Think National. Act Local. Oh- and superstition is just the dark matter of human history.
