Women Priests

This is an interesting phase in the Catholic Church's decline. While it is suffering a severe crisis with regards to priest shortages it remains keen to keep a group of eager volunteers from following their vocation. This is rather like somebody floated atop the icy ocean spurning a rubber ring for being painted an unappealing shade, but it would seem that the Church is more interested in maintaining purity than getting their "Good" Word out.

Which is the way I like it. This reticience to catch up is admirable and to be commended.

I can only agree with you wholeheartedly. The sooner the Catholic church, and organised religion in general, goes the way of the dodo, the better off we'll all be.
