Morse The time has long since passed, if indeed it ever existed, when Catholics could be depended upon to think and act as one on issues relating to religion and morality. Catholic women at the IWY Conference sharply differ in their opinions and are most concerned with four issues— ERA, abortion, lesbian rights and women priests. At the Convention Hall, Catholics were picking up information on Dignity, the Catholic homosexual organization, buying buttons that said "Ordain Women or Stop Baptizing Them," and signing up to support passage of the ERA. Across town at the Astro Arena, other Catholics, equally sincere, were pledging to oppose ERA, federally supported child care, lesbian rights and abortion. Three Catholic women attending the conference offer diverse opinions on the proposals under discussion. The women, are Virginia Andary, who describes herself as a career woman and wife from the Northeast coast, Katherine Goldknopf, Houston homemaker and university research administrator, and Edith James, a Houston homemaker. Andary is a strong advocate of the entire group of issues being considered. Speaking from the "Catholics for a Free Choice" booth at the convention, Andary said she is in complete agreement with the ERA. "It has to be done," she said. "We're out of the Constitution. It (ERA) will help speed up getting equitable rights throughout the country." On abortion, Andary said women and their individual decisions must be respected. "If we do not allow women reproductive freedom, then women will get abortions anyway. They need to have safe abortions and protect their families." Andary is also in agreement with the lesbian rights proposal because she believes it is an individual decision. As for women priests, Andary was enthusiastically supportive, but noted that a change in the church's stand on this issue would probably come much sooner than a change on the abortion question. Goldknopf was interviewed as she was feeding her year-old daughter, Jessica. On the ERA, Goldknopf expressed herself in absolute agreement. "I am interested in seeing that women have true equality under the Constitution," she said. On the subject of abortion, however, Goldknopf has reservations. "While I concede that each woman has an individual conscience and responsibility to make her own decision," she said, "the cases where abortion is truly justified are only in those in which the woman's life is equally at risk. A society in which abortion is based on convention or on matters of less severity, is a society that has begun the almost unstoppable progress toward euthanasia and elective sacrifice of less desirable individuals." She does not feel that this is a prerogative of individual discretion but of God's. "In many cases where the infant's life is taken to save the mother," she noted, "the woman has other children and saving her preserves her family." On the issue of sexual preference, Goldknopf confessed that she had not given the matter much thought, but could see no reason why the resolution should Jiot be passed. "While I do not condone this lifestyle or the encouragement of this lifestyle," she said, "I cannot help but feel that they (lesbians) are entitled to protection under the law as are other individuals." The ordination of women priests, she felt, is vital to the successful furthering of the evangelical mission of the Christian faith. James, a long-time parishioner of St. Vincent de Paul Church, is firmly opposed to the passage of the ERA. She feels that there is too much danger in how the amendment will be interpreted. "I have had experience with the Supreme Court interpreting issues contrary to the way I believe," she said. "We have a very liberal Congress which might interpret the ERA against Christian principles." As for abortion, or the woman's right to choose, James is equally opposed. "Women have always had the right to choose," she stated, "but I don't want to pay for it." On being read the National Plan of Action proposition on sexual preference, James declared herself against its passage. However, she said, homosexuals are human beings and should be treated as such. We must, nevertheless, "explain to them that they are living contrary to the way Christ taught us." James also opposed the idea of women priests. "Men do a better job," she stated. Overall, James felt, men and women should work hand in hand, complementing each other. "We were made differently," she said, "and cannot be perfectly equal in every way, but we should work together." All three women have at least one thing in common—they have elected to remain within the Church and press for the acceptance of their beliefs. ^ \ WOMEN'S AUDIO EXCHANGE...
