Item Description...
Confessions is the honest and heart-rending account of a woman who was born into a Catholic family, attended parochial schools and fully embraced the beliefs of her faith, but ran into major roadblocks in college. Amidst the radical feminist college environment of the 1960's, she lost her faith, and her morality, jumping aboard the bandwagon of "free love." She indulged in a series of love relationships in college, all of which crashed and burned. Despite the obvious contradiction between feminist teachings and her own experience, Murray still believed she had to free herself from the yoke of tradition. Attaining a doctorate in philosophy, with an emphasis on the feminist writings of Simone de Beauvoir, Murray taught philosophy in college. For many years, she launched a personal vendetta against God and the Catholic Church in the classroom, trying to persuade students that God did not exist, mocking values Catholics hold dear, and touted feminism as the cure for many social ills. When she discovered she was pregnant, Murray followed the route that feminists offer as a solution for unmarried women. Much to her surprise, her abortion was a shattering emotional experience, which she grieved over for years. It was the first tragic chink in her feminist armor. After her marriage in 1982, she anguished over the decision to have children, but became an advocate of the "child-free" movement, believing children were burdens and life could be happy life without them. Later in her forties, Murray experienced a mysterious series of events in which it seemed that "someone" was inviting her back to God. The mysterious calls came from different ports, including nature, books and other people. Gradually, she realized that the One seeking her was Christ, and the place He was calling her to was the Catholic Church. Eventually realizing it was only in the Church that she would find what she was seeking - the person of Christ and his love and mercy - Murray returned to the Church, and finally found healing and forgiveness for the abortion. Lorraine Murray's Confessions are a revelation. They reveal the nasty truth behind women's "liberation". Her experiences, and the lessons she learns from them, serve as a timely warning of the folly of feminism and the destructive impact that feminism has on those who fall under its malignant spell. - Joseph Pearce, author The Quest for Shakespeare

If you are looking for the conspiracy theory behind feminism, you may also want to read 'Cruel Hoax' by Henry Makow, PhD.

'Cruel Hoax : Feminism and the new world order' is a wake up call for women who blindly follow feminism and everybody else who think otherwise.
Fairly decent  Sep 19, 2008
It was good, but it was more of a conversion story than I thought it would be. I was hoping for more info on feminism, but I suppose I should have know that this wasn't the place to get it. Short and very readable. I read it in only about three sittings.
not weird enough  Sep 12, 2008
I liked this book, and enjoyed reading about Lorraine Murray's progress out of the Catholic Church and back again. However (and I can't say why), her story didn't engage me to the same extent as some of the biographies in Donna Steichen's Prodigal Daughters.

Maybe the things she did weren't weird enough.
Journey Home  Jul 20, 2008
I thank Lorraine for sharing her journey. I believe there are many other women that can experience healing through this testimony. So much has been lost over the last three decades.
