  •  I'll go ahead and delete it then. THANKS!! (5+ / 0-)
    •  2 hours later, still there? (4+ / 0-)

      I was going to make the same comment (and link).

      ** (update - next day) - and then again, maybe he didn't make that statement [about women being unfit for political office].  My face is red.  I should have checked that out, as one checks out urban legends, before posting.  A church source attributes this statement to an Argentine commenter on Yahoo Respuestas who posted it under the name of Bumper Crop.  It was then picked up and posted on a Mexican Facebook site where it got 18,000 hits, a Costa Rican picked it up, etc. etc., and it went viral.   It is almost certainly a false attribution, because a google source finds no trace of it before March 13th, according to this church source.   Bergoglio's moves to keep women in their place are real.  We don't need to make things up.  Shame on these overzealous feminists, if that's even what they are.  Their heart may be in the right place, but their methods suck.  And shame on me for being suckered.  I apologize for my carelessness.  (I leave this in as a reminder to myself that no matter how tired I get and no matter how much I want to post something to be done with it, you gotta check your sources!)
      •  Fixed soon after -- thanks! :-) (0+ / 0-)

        I sent it to a journalist friend; I waited until this was fixed (so that it didn't raise any doubts on the rest of it).
        Thanks again!
