    it's the quality not the quantity of brains that count.  And a few people with half-wits still intact can discern that a lot of people on the left do not discuss religion in a particularly constructive or engaging or inviting way.  So, it's ambiguous whether one is only referring to sexist aspects or the whole shebang by a statement that is, itself infantile like Catholicism is sexist.  (Who knows, is the following statement going to be, "and you're sexist unless you quit?")  What's more, while there are many Catholics who believe this, you still need to get to 50% plus 1 to win an election.  

    If you are as concerned about derailing discussion as you claim to be, why not limit the discussion to "sexism is sexist," and recognize that when people point out that forces within the Catholic or any other church that are against sexism are as legitimate if not more so than contrary forces -- even if in response to you -- they're doing a favor to the issues and people you purport to care about.
