It’s hardly a shock that the paragons of class at Jezebel hate the Catholic Church, what with its rules and morality and stuff. But shouldn’t people who write for a living be able to come up with a better epithet for a Church cardinal than “Catholic Bullshitter?” Is that the best enlightened progressives can do?
Jezebel's Doug Barry blamed the Church for “deny[ing] gay people certain critical elements of what it means to be a full-fledged person” and dubbed Cardinal Timothy Dolan a “Catholic bullshitter” and a “self-justifying blowhard” in a piece published Sunday. Barry zeroed in on Dolan, the archbishop of New York, after Dolan admitted the Church was “out-marketed” in regards to marriage during NBC’s “Meet the Press.”
Feminism isn't just a brutal philosophy for millions of unborn children. It's brutal on the Internet. Take the website Jezebel.com, a reference to the prophetess in the Book of Revelation who was "teaching and beguiling my servants to practice immorality."
This summer, a Catholic priest in Gainesville, Virginia took to Facebook to help find an adoptive home for an unborn child with Down syndrome. It spurred a little press boomlet when hundreds of people called or e-mailed the church, volunteering to raise the child.
The world of the elite liberal media is a small one. Witness Jezebel founder Anna Holmes and CNN’s Jake Tapper.
The Washington Post’s Megan McDonough covered Holmes’ newly published “The Book of Jezebel,” on the Style section’s front page via her piece: “A compilation of lady things, A to Jezebel.” In the Oct. 30 article, McDonough noted the presence of CNN’s “The Lead” Host Jake Tapper at a party after a D.C. book reading.
If there were a book dedicated to Jezebel in the Bible, the story might somewhat resemble the new feminist book, “The Book of Jezebel:” encouraging worship of false idols and ending up as a corpse left to the dogs.
In the case of the actual tome, “The Book of Jezebel,” the false idol is the self. Described as “an illustrated encyclopedia of lady things,” and edited by Anna Holmes, founder of ultra-liberal feminist site Jezebel, the book debuted in October. And of course it was well-received by liberal outlets like Huffington Post and NPR.
Bravo to Jezebel, the ultra-liberal feminist site, for addressing the ongoing virginity epidemic. When there are reports of girls graduating high school and even entering college without having had sex, only Jezebel’s Laura Beck has had the courage to stand up and scream, “Stop the Madness!”
With the tide of popular opinion and state law running against them, abortion absolutists are turning to saviors (Wendy “Pink Tennis Shoes” Davis) and martyrs like the one profiled recently on the ultra-feminist liberal site Jezebel.
In an article titled “I Help Women, and I Could Go To Jail for It,” an anonymous author who claimed to be “one of America’s unlicensed, untrained illegal abortionists” told how s/he began an on-the-side career of dealing abortion drugs after receiving “desperate emails” and “desperate pleas” from numerous women.
If Wendy Davis’ 11-hour filibuster to protect late-term abortion in the Lone Star State wasn’t proof enough of the Texas pro-abortion movement’s desperation, a new video game does the trick.
In “Choice: Texas,” designed by Carly Kocurek and Allyson Whipple and currently in development, players hunt for abortion access in Texas via the “choose-your-own-adventure” technique – and confront obstacles such as geography and healthcare.
There are some lives not worth living, and a Down Syndrome baby is one of them – at least, according to Jezebel’s latest article.
Katie J. M. Baker recently bashed a pastor for rescuing an unborn Down Syndrome baby from abortion, insisting that “so many mistreated babies and kids with Downs live terrible lives” in Jezebel, a feminist blog detailing “celebrity, sex, fashion for women.” Rev. Thomas Vander Woude, a Catholic priest located in Gainesville, Va, offered to help the 6-month-pregnant mother of a Down Syndrome baby to locate an adoptive family as an alternative to abortion. When Father Vander Woude sent the alarm via social media begging for prospective parents, responses flooded in by the hundreds.
Forget your biological clock, ladies. Here’s another internal timer set to ring: the abortion alarm. Just for you, Jezebel’s Erin Gloria Ryan confirms that 25-years-old is the perfect age for an abortion.
“There's a point where [a woman is] financially and emotionally mature enough to support a child and her body is still capable of making babies — but what about the alternative?” Ryan asked in breezy piece for Jezebel, the site of “gossip, culture, fashion, and sex for the contemporary woman.”
