The necessity for the male priesthood is based in Eucharistic theology which, although “mysterious” in the spiritual sense, is logically consistent and understandable by anyone who isn’t blinded by ideology.
That is to say, these people don’t seem to realize what idiots they seem.
Yes, they have done so great for us in government.
He’ll be called a racist if he doesn’t allow women in to the priesthood. I guess it would be the priestesshood? Racist because they’ll say so. No matter if “actual” race is involved. Just sayin’ it means it’s true.
Have you ever had the unfortunate experience of being in a worship service conducted by a woman “minister”? It becomes apparent that their focus is on themselves and their performance. Grinning and giggling during the distribution of the sacrament is truly disturbing. However, no doubt parishioners become used to this behavior, which is even more disturbing.
How could they forget about Pope Joan?
I’m not sure that scripture mandates an all male priesthood. But I do know for a fact there is nothing the Bible (that I can find) in either the Old Testament or the New Testament which mandates celibacy as a requirement for serving in the priesthood. In the early Church, popes, bishops, and priest were married men. As late as the 12th Century the overwhelming majority of priests and bishops were married men. Celibacy was introduced in the Middle Ages as a response to nepotism and corruption in the Church.
Since he’s celibate, I imagine that’s one problem he doesn’t have!
In the end nothing else matters.
If it ever happens, I’ll bet they will have to be ‘celibate’ women...A whole new can of worms...
Petrosius has a new year’s resolution for The Daily Beast: be open to God’s plan for the proper distinctions between men and women.
Better look quick before they all dissappear.
Half the Nazis spewing hate at the Daily Beast were fired last month. This anti-semitic Julius Streicher website has only weeks left before it sinks into the tarpit mire.
Die you democrat Nazi freaks.
These people need to go and start their own church. They don’t want that, of course, they want to corrupt and infect the churches/orgs/institutions they don’t like.
Funny she doesn’t look like Barbie AT ALL!
