More Money Than Sense: Melinda Gates

The broom was in extremely expensive composite material, and studded with diamonds…


I am not among those who say that money is filthy. If you ask me, poverty can corrupt much more easily than wealth. Also, I do not think money makes one stupid. If one says stupid things after making (or marrying) money, it means one wasn’t much of a genius before making (or marrying) it.

The poster girl of this rather obvious conclusion is Melinda Gates, the wife of the rather better known Bill. Melinda Gates married money, big times, and like many of the wives of her cohorts is now in desperate needs to do something with her life, feel important and “good”, and go around telling everyone how she wants to change the world.

The lady is so confused, you would think she is a progressive nun. She brings the concept “cafeteria Catholic” to a new height, because she says herself she picks and chooses, without any of the shame or excuses you would otherwise find elsewhere (like: we have been misinterpreted; we are shocked at being told we are heretics; the holy ghost send us a text message, and the like). Nay, she says it as if it was something good.

Decidedly, money can’t buy you a brain.

Mrs Melinda Gate, who has now decided to spend an awful lot of the money she has married on contraception,  is on record with the following pearl of stupidity:

“I had to wrestle with which pieces of religion do I use and believe in my life, what would I counsel my daughters to do”

She wrestles-with-which-pieces-of-religion-to-use. What is this, an April joke? And she says she is a Catholic! Has this woman’s brain ever been switched on? 

Needless to say, she hides herself under the usual “good examples”, which in this case are the usual oh so social heretical nuns. You will be surprised, in this case they are the otherwise rather well-reputed Ursulines, which, as it turns out, also belong to the LCWR.

In the words of the lady:

“They said, ‘We’re all for you. We know this is a difficult issue to speak on, but we absolutely believe that you’re living under Catholic values.’ And it was just so heartening.”

The soi-disant nuns aren’t brighter than the lady, but being nuns they are, if at all possible, even more culpable than she is.

Notice how the so called crackdown of the Vatican on this bunch of witches hasn’t improved anything. They will pay some lip service to  Rome, and will continue to bark just as loud, certain of impunity.

Melinda gates married money, but this wasn’t enough to buy her some decency, or common sense. The nuns are probably too old to remember what either is.

Will we have to wait another 40 years before something some energetic against these females is finally undertaken? Will we have to wait another 20 before the likes of Melinda Gates are excommunicated? How long will the Church hierarchy continue to look at this scandal and shame without doing anything worthy of being called “action”? 

Mala tempora currunt.

  1. I quit working for msft recently. Now I am even more happy that I did.

  2. Mundabor, you ask, “How long will the Church hierarchy continue to look at this scandal and shame without doing anything worthy of being called “action”?”

    Judging by the Hierarchy’s inaction over other running sores in the Church,I’m not holding my breath.

    Excellent post!

    • Thanks Leftfooter (is it Leftfooter or Left-footer by the way?).

      I am not the most diplomatic of men, but if I were a bishop or cardinal (let alone Pope) I would be utterly unable to find a justification for such weakness. I do not know any other organisation on earth in which such inaction would be allowed. One thing is the need for diplomacy, a completely different one is to allow every wolf around to confuse the people unpunished either for many years, or forever.
