I always like to “pick” flowers (pictures) in honor of a great Jewess, the Mother of Jesus.
I sometimes like to look up words as I use them. I googled “Jewess” and came up with the top entry definition supplied by Google itself:
Noun: offensive. A Jewish woman or girl.
I didn’t realize that being a Jew or a Jewess was “offensive”. Offensive to whom? I am offended that Google would promote such an offensive description of someone in the line of Judah, fourth son of Jacob, son of Isaac, son of Abraham.
The Jews are right to say that being Jewish is not a crime, and that to be proud of being Jewish is a good thing, and Pius XII himself said this, by the way.
Google’s anti-Semitic idiocy, saying someone’s very heritage in whatever way is offensive, is quite common.
When I was in Louisiana, the Cajans were condemned as being “Cajan”. But then a Cajan (from Accadia) wrote a book on being proud to be a Cajan, what with all of their epic history as Accadians.
When I was in Australia, I was told never to call an aborignine an Aborigine, for to be called an Aborigene is a great insult. I was incredulous. The Aborigines have been in Australia a good 40,000 years before any immigrants landed in the Down Under. And then an Aborigine wrote a book saying that he is proud to be called an Aborigine and… and… even… gasp!… an Abo. Very cool that!
Today, Catholics have been put into dhimmitude (made second class citizens) by Barak Hussain Obama, who promotes the Qur’an and trashes the Judeo-Christian Scriptures. Unless the courts do something, Catholic hospitals and schools and charitable institutions will cease to exist, just the thing that was happening to the Jews in Germany previous to the holocaust. I, for one, hope that I will always be proud to be a Catholic, however much I suffer or die for this. “Catholic” is also held to be pejorative these days. Whatever. I will continue to be Catholic and be proud of it.
Why all this on the Feast of Saint Joseph, Husband of Mary? Well, because Saint Joseph took care of little Jesus, both when He was in the womb of Mary by way of the overshadowing of the Holy Spirit, and upon His birth, and upon their exile into Egypt, and so on. These days, we especially need the protection of Saint Joseph when so many little ones are being destroyed by abortion pushed by money hungry abortionists, the new Herods of the day. We have now moved into infanticide. We’re quickly moving toward the regulation of the number of children, just like China, where women are killed who have more than one baby.
Saint Joseph, husband of Mary, protect us!
Oh… and a word to Google: I would change your description of what “Jewess” means. Really, I would, if I were you. Your policy is not to be evil. Well, you’re being evil now.
