Respect for Women By Melvyn Brown
Remarkably, generations of peace-loving, grateful, happy and satisfied women are all long gone. Mavericks are at large today, making the nation unsafe for girl children, women, wives, mothers and the old. Men who are misfits in society, money-mad and liars look at life through a dead Whitney Houston hologram.
The notion of living in peace, abiding by rules, is not the forte for these dark souls. In the times of the early 1900s and ages before that, in every state in India from Delhi to Bombay, Madras, West Bengal, Tamil Naidu and so on- there were many Catholic schools, and when you found a Catholic school, there was a Catholic church near- by, and where there was a Catholic church near was a Catholic convent, filled with Catholic women, between the ages of 17-20 en route to a convent after leaving home and parents for the purpose of teaching children their faith for a future of purpose and stability in society.
We have evangelical leaders to spread the Word. We teach the culture of life, not to be agents of intolerance, but to be disciples of mercy and forgiveness. Women, we believe need respect, love, support and a sense of security. People should pledge to be there when the woman is threatened, abused or sacrificed.
It is never too late. Not a day passes when I pray for a legion of brave women to put right the moronic world we live in. Let us not forget, the hand that rocks the cradle rules the world. I remember the words of Robert G. Ingersoll : “I had rather live with the woman I love in a world full of trouble, than to live in heaven with nobody but men.”
