But it’s not sexist

Filed under: Catholicism and other questions of religion — theotheri @ 8:41 pm

It impresses me as naive enough that many of the Roman Catholic hierarchy seem to equate paedophilia with homosexuality.

But naive is too kind a word to describe the Vatican attitude that has led it to pronounce that women priests are committing a grave crime equal to that of of the sexual abuse of children.

All 100-plus Roman Catholic women priests in America have been excommunicated.  But it might trouble the authorities that many of their ordinations are valid, having been performed by dissenting bishops who have the irrevocable power to ordain priests.
