Lindy knows full well that she wrote that article as if the man represents the majority opinion of the Catholic Church. An author on this site would never pretend that Wahabi Islamist opinions on educating women were mainstream Islamic opinions.

I grew up Catholic, though I'm no longer practicing. There's plenty of valid reasons to criticize the Roman Catholic church (AHEM RAPIST PEDOPHILE PRIEST SCANDAL among others), but it's position on educating women isn't one of them. The Roman Catholic Church has a long tradition in promoting education to men, women, rich and poor alike. And it's usually a pretty damn good education, too.

And now the article has been promoted again, for more clickbait rage, and my irritation continues.
