...and of the silliest things I have yet read is a criticism of the Pope in The Guardian  for his recent poignant message to Europe at Strabourg, when he noted the continents tragic infertility and absence of new life. The writer, a self-styled Catholic Feminidst announces that this is an attack on grandmothers. I thought it was a spoof at first. No, I'm not giiving the link: some things are so daft it just isn't worth encouraging anyone to go there.

Oh thank goodness! I too thought it was a spoof, then I saw someone 'promoting'this article, which was almost an occasion of sin for me.

I suppose (not having read the piece to which you refer), that it's not really so ridiculous. After all, he was clearly being pejorative when he compared Europe to a grandmother. So it does seem a bit harsh on grandmothers!
