Katie

"Correcting your ninth grade English teacher, who was trying to tell the class that the Spanish Inquisition was one of the worst atrocities of the second millennium, now that, friends, will earn you a nickname like “Churchie”.
Not that I minded … much. My parents raised us with a certain awareness that the Church was going through rough times.

"College campuses are great places to start a revolution. Lenin and Hitler knew it. The countercultural revolutionaries of the 1960s knew it. And pro-life college students know it too: The campus-led pro-life revolution is in full swing. This one is countering the culture of death, ushered in by the counterculturalists of the 1960s. It is impassioned and ready to fire up fellow students to stand up for the most abandoned, and to be courageous and uncompromising pro-life leaders."

"A typical American college campus offers the following curriculum: Timeless prerequisites cheap beer, late-night parties, hapless academic advisors, expensive textbooks and leftist professors. Then there are the modern electives radical feminist militancy, homosexual activism and a contraceptive sex culture many find irresistible. Most campus health clinics are veritable marketing tools for Planned Parenthood. From dispensing the abortion chain’s condom lollipops in your choice of flashy colors and other sex products, to referring pregnant students to the nearest abortion business, they do it all"

"Currently, around 200 pro-life campus groups operate around the country. Most have a difficult mission: Educate the campus about abortion and other forms of murdering innocent human beings, such as euthanasia, infanticide, human embryonic stem cell research and human cloning, in order to foster respect for human beings at every stage of development."

This gives more info on Adelaide and I think it makes her look good -well travelled and educated, speaks many languages. He father has also worked at the embassy in Saudi Arabia, and I suspect her and her family are more diplomatic. However, I think they should wait until she finishes University to marry.

Quote from #40 referenced article 's translation, but it does not translate very well.

Ms.Drapé-Frisch's multilingualism is impressive. Her family seems to be accepted by European nobility.

So if the Spanish Inquisition means "the Church is going through rough times", what about today's allegations of sexual abuse? Ms. Walker's justification of misdeeds by Roman Catholic Church is indicative of dichotomous thinking. Such thinking may be viewed as immature.

Katie Walker seems to me very extreme in her views, but if she's accepted by her fiances family what are we gonna do? I hope the wedding doesn't go through because she seems like one of those women who loves to shove her views down peoples throats and I'm sure the families will get tired of that attitude pretty soon.

Katie does not seem to be a person I would like to know. We would disagree on almost everything and she does not strike me as the type of person who could agree to disagree and then move on.

Regardless of whether or not one agrees with Miss Walker's points of view, the rigidity of her stance does not bode well for her psychological well-being or that of her family. Hers is a good example of black-and-white thinking, in which things and people are deemed "all good" (e.g., the Church and everything it does) or "all bad" (e.g., anyone who challenges or merely questions those positions). It's a form of dichotomous thinking, as Al Bina points out above.

The technical name in psychology is "splitting," and it is considered a primitive defense mechanism. Among other things, it suggests a limited capacity for compassion, given that compassion is based on an ability to entertain and try to understand - from the inside - the complexity and richness of human experience. Jesus Christ was a wonderful embodiment of compassion. By contrast, Miss Walker seems compelled to reduce many things to simple, rigid, black-and-white precepts that must followed blindly... otherwise, a person is to be condemned and excluded (by refusing them Holy Communion, for example).

Sadly, she reminds me of why people say that some elements in Roman Catholicism are essentially the Pharisees of Christianity. They think that it's all about rigid adherence to rules, but they lose the Spirit in the process.

Sooooo, anyone else think there's a possibility this wedding (Imre and Katie) won't take place?

Although Imre seems like the kind to honor his promise and since they did a whole blessing ceremony and everything, is it possible he didn't quite know everything about Miss Walker and all this stuff coming out will make him think again?

I think that is wishful thinking on part of those who (like me) dislike Kathleen’s extremist, ultra conservative opinion and the way she pushes her convictions forward. Kathleen has not been exactly secretive about her work for her ideals. So there is no reason to think that she kept her opions from AD Imre. We have to face the thougth that Imre shares her opinions and appreciates her publicity work. How else could he have fallen in love with her? Actually, I think that they will get married very quickly. Let’s not forget that Kathleen is very outspoken against pre-marital sex. Usually those people with long courtships/engagement periods are more liberal and modern in their view.

Ms. Kathleen Walker is certainly an interesting choice for a bride. It should be great fun watching her over the years.
I don't agree with her political views and I'm pro-choice, but I think as long as her protests are peaceful she is within her rights to do so.
There is a group of fundamentalists that protest outside of the abortion clinic in town where I live. They aren't allowed on the property but protest on the public sidewalk in front of the building.
I have a neighbour who is a nurse at the clinic, and she says the group is peaceful and that most people don't pay any attention to them.
I 100% agree that the women should not be harrassed. Still I also believe that peaceful assembly and protest are an important part of human rights, and I can't deny that to someone even I don't agree with their beliefs.

I think you are right Tilia, I think Imre knows full well what she believes in and probably agrees with it.She would never marry someone who didn't believe what she does.She seems very rigid in her beliefs and I don't think she would put up with a partner who had dissenting views.What this really makes me wonder about Imre

I agree with both you you, Tilia and Marlene. For my part, it is a disappointment to learn that this segment of the Habsburg family -- whom I have respected and admired for its discretion and quiet upholding of historical traditions -- might support such rigidity and closed-mindedness. It is one thing to be a faithful Catholic who advocates peacefully against abortion, but it is quite another to defend the Spanish Inquisition and to actively urge bishops to deny Holy Communion to politicians whose legal responsibility, after all, is to represent diverse constituencies.

Most certainly Archduke Imre supports Ms. Walker's views. Furthermore Archduke Imre's strong pro-life opinion is not surprising. His uncle, Grand Duke Henri of Luxembourg, is known to hold the same views.

Yes, Al Bina. But I doubt very much that Grand Duke Henri defends the Spanish Inquisition or actively advocates denying the Sacrament to anyone. Miss Walker's positions suffer from a sense of moral certainty and superiority, whereas Grand Duke Henri and his wife, Maria Teresa, strike me as people who try to live as faithful Catholics with humility and compassion for others.

I think Adelaide will be a wonderful addition to the family.She is multilingual, well travelled and well educated.Being the daughter of a diplomat I am sure she also has a keen understanding of the importance of discretion.

I went to the website for Jeunesse Lumiere (Youth Light) and it appears to be a program set up for young people between the ages of 18-30 where you do a sabbatical year studying Catholism ,praying and expanding your relationship with Jesus.I think on the whole this family is very, very devoutly Catholic.

I agree! Little Léopold is adorable, and his parents and grandparents look very well. Thank you, Stefanie.

I was especially glad to see the photo of the entire family, including the young fiancées, and I must say that they all look very happy... even Archduchess Yolande (née princesse de Ligne), who perhaps has only a small glint of something else in her eye.

I hope that both of these marriages prove healthy, happy, and long-lasting, although Miss Walker's (and perhaps also Archduke Imre's) rigidity does not bode well for their life as a couple and family.
