The War Against Reality --- Gender Ideology Brought Into Focus

The film Life of Brian by the British comedy troupe Monty Python met a lot of criticism with its appearance  because it is very disrespectful and questionable towards Christianity and the historical figure of Jesus of Nazareth. A scene of the 1971 film rounded  upon some ideological positions in a satirically pointed,  which were then represented only by sectarian factions.
A position that 35 years later, one might think it was a bad joke, has become the great ideological struggle of  prevailing opinion, with which mankind will be forced to be downright happy. In the humorous repartee, John Cleese fails to appreciate in the conclusion, Sten's  "desire" to be a wife and to have children.
The first discourse revolves around "rights", which actually or supposedly are supposedly entitled  to or stubbornly insisted upon. John Cleese brings the bizarre discussion at the end on the level of reality. It's not about whether something is a "right" or not, but the reality. Monty Python could not have imagined in 1979, when the grotesque sketch was filmed, to what degree the struggle against reality would take a few decades later. [There were such people like this roaming around the halls of academe on your tax dollar then, too.]

Too bad the womyn-priesters can't grasp this type of reality.

Seems to me the Church knows who they can ordain, and who they cannot!
