    How is this disrespectful towards women? As I just said, practically anyother office or title is open to women - including sainthood. Unlike, for example, the pagan cult of Mithras which barred women altogether from membership.

    The respect given towards women within Catholicism has often been very great, especially with our deep veneration of the Holy Mother of God. An honest respect for the different natures and vocations of men and women is not discrimination.

    More priests = more members, right? Also other women seeing the female leader figure would feel more comfortable.

    Fail.
    Yeah ok, look at the Anglican Church. They allow female and gay priests, and they're practically on the verge of schism. Large numbers are now beginning to flock to the Catholic Church now because of this. The Pope has already cleared the way for entire congregations now to join the Church.

    Fuh fuh fuh is the appropriate response to such a remark. I'll continue to say it as long as you make such remarks.

    Just as the Mother of God is the Virgin Mary and the Father of God is, well, the Father.

    Well, you are warm and friendly with a natural talent for trance induction.

    And yes, I can see Mother Tinkerbell, even Monseigneur Tinkerbell, rising to Bishop Tinkerbell, and then Archbishop Tinkerbell, and why not Cardinal Tinkerbell, finally leading to Pope Tinkerbell, herself.

    I just hope you won't forget as when you take the purple.

    Who is "they"?

    I got that you were being sarcastic, but I thought you were saying the church's position isn't logical with your sarcasm.

    Jesus believed the world was coming to an end in his own lifetime or that of his followers. He was wrong about that, so why not this?

    The problem is that if women are good enough to baptise, to confirm, to receive the Eucharist, to marry, to confess and receive the Last Rites, why are they not good enough to ordain?

    Women can receive all the seven sacraments except one, ordination.

    I am mostly of the opinion that the Catholic church is a reactionary force against women's progress, but, my opinion aside, I don't think forcing these people by law to act contrary to their religious beliefs is necessarily a good thing (if their practices are within the law to begin with, that is.)
