Women send up pink smoke to protest male-only conclave to elect pope
Catholic News Service ^ | 4/18/2005

CHICAGO (CNS) -- Before the cardinals locked into the Sistine Chapel had a chance to cast their first ballot April 18, a group protesting the lack of women's voices in the conclave gathered outside Holy Name Cathedral in Chicago to send up billows of bright pink smoke along with prayers for women to be heard. The event featured statements from several organizations supporting the ordination of women that called on the church to open its doors fully to women's participation. "At a time when young women are sold into slavery around the world, when war brings the rape of women, when it is women and children who suffer in poverty on earth and organized religions keep women in bondage celebrating the language of a male God, we know we cannot keep the silence demanded by male leadership in a church that claims to speak out for human rights," said Dominican Sister Donna Quinn, a member of the National Coalition of American Nuns.

Dear women of the world,
Shut up, get in the kitchen, bake me a pie and knit me a sweater and make babies.

Love,

Laz

This beotch should be excommunicated.

This is exactly what Ratzinger was talking about.

Liberals still whine about people's lack of PC plumbing? That's old boring playbook stuff.

Sounds like they need some global judges to change things by court order.

celebrating the language of a male God

1. Jesus was God
2. Jesus was a man
Therefore, God is a man.

Perfectly logical conclusion to me :-)

Kooks.

If they object to a religion abusing women they should drop in on Iran.

This is another example of the "women and children" suffer most syndrome.

"All together now: Give a W, give me an H, give me an I, give me an N, give me an E. Whadayya get? WHINE! Whadyya gonna do? WHINE! Whadayya excell at ? WHINE!"

Phew. I feel better now.

Sister Donna, you're fired!

Next!

"....when war brings the rape of women, when it is women and children who suffer in poverty on earth..."

When a "Sister" spews this type of nonsense, is it a sin? Is participating in activities that directly conflict with the church a sin? What is the difference between advocating for this or advocating to be able to take a husband?

I'm not Catholic, so clearly I am not able to answer these questions. Any of you Catholic Freepers care to enlighten me?

I think the church has been too PC in accomodating politicians. Perhaps a few excommunications will clarify what the church stands for.

Considering the make-up of many of the priests in the Chicago Archdiocese, I'd say that effeminacy has plenty of voices there, if not women per se. It's a wonder they weren't sending up lavender smoke.

Don't forget, when Cardinal Bernadin passed away, the Chicago Gay Men's Choir sang at his funeral mass...
