His communist Holiness expresses the following opinion:
We should support with decisiveness the right to equal pay for equal work. Why is it a given that women must earn less than men? No! They have the same rights. The disparity is pure scandal.
But no arbitrary Smith has a “right” to earn the same or more as any arbitrary Jones, including in a special case of this general rule in which Smith is a woman, and Jones is a man.
Francis said the “radical equality” that Christianity proposes between husband and wife must bear new fruit.
Francis has spoken out frequently about how the Catholic Church in general must give greater value to the “feminine genius”…
But if men and women are “equal,” then there is no special “feminine genius,” because the feminine is equal to the masculine is (presumably) equal to neuter.
I’m not sure Francis has thought any of this through.
