28. Not to get into "mexed messages," but, um, IF you have children
then, yeah, maternity (and paternity) SHOULD be Job One.

However, I understand that not all women (and men) want or need children.

Maybe you should rephrase your post to reflect that what Ratzinger is saying is that women shouldn't have any other choice but to be barefoot and pregnant.

I dunno... it sounded to me like you were advocating making something else a priority over children IF YOU ALREADY HAVE THEM, which, obviously, you're not.
