  1. This is the saddest comment I ever heard. Its a gender bender if ever I heard one. This comment divides and causes a competitive spirit between the genders. It is divisive and not cohesive. Ever heard the phrase divide and rule .. but at what cost … take a good hard look at the problems that mankind is facing .. its statements like these that separate … where as the only competition you should ever enter is the one with the self. This is the most male chauvinistic comment I ever heard. Thankfully I am a zoroastrian and we are the oldest religion in the world and it teaches its followers an equality of genders that man has steadiy tried to erode away into .. but through other religions. Funnily God has gifted me a woman the source of the law of attraction and other miracles. A mother is the promised land .. all goodness flows from her … she does not need to go anywhere in search of anything ..


    • I’m sorry but I don’t get your point. All the Pope is saying is that most mothers will not live long enough to see the world their children and grandchildren will live in and yet they are the source of much that the future world will be as a result of the lessons of their Christian faith that they teach their children today. There is nothing decisive in this effort. I’m not sure you are reading the quote correctly.
