The catholic church issues another gem on intolerance.

Quote:
Vatican sends threat over women priests

ROME, Italy (CNN) -- The Vatican announced Thursday in a general decree that it will excommunicate anyone who would attempt to ordain a woman as a priest and the woman herself.

According to the decree, the excommunications would take place with immediate effect.

The decree was signed by Cardinal William Levada, prefect of the congregation for the doctrine of the faith.
...


The new host of KGO's godtalk, Brent Walters, brings this to his listeners' attention.

And he raises this issue: The argument that the vatican uses for its justification is that jesus's apostles were all men. Well, using that statement, does that mean that priests can marry, then, afterall, since the apostles were supposedly married as well?

My church has a female junior pastor. She will not acknowledge/shake hands with single men as the congregation exits. She actually looks away as men walk out her door. Seems odd to me. Strikes me as another man hating ....................

The male pastor heartily shakes hands with about everyone.

Just reminded me of that anecdote.


I want to be a highly paid fashion model and feel discriminated against.

If churches don't have rules, there is no difference that makes them unique. I think organizations should be allowed to manage themselves. If you don't like it, join another organization.

The globalists force organizations to tear down their rules and lose their structure. Yet the globalists have possibly the strictest rules of them all. Talk to a journalist and lose your membership. Yesterday.

One web site dedicated to seeing women ordained in the Catholic church.

A pedophile can be a priest, but a woman can't...I find that incredibly stupid, but oh so typical!
