Must Try Harder

Over at Patheos, Kathy Schiffer is running a series on the “Best 100 Catholic Speakers” and here she is with seminary professor Dr. Janet Smith, author of Contraception: Why Not?

Choice quote from Dr. Smith:

I think contraception is an insult to women…. [W]omen basically apologize for their fertility. “I’m sorry. When I have sex I may get pregnant. Sure, I’ll be glad to mess with my body to correct this humiliating and inconvenient feature of my sex.”

I don’t know what it worse about that, the simpering pastiche of political correctness, or the utter logical breakdown.

And then I note this:

As a seminary professor, Dr. Janet Smith is helping to shape the next generation of priests.

Oh well.
