Iirc, Bishops in the Eastern and Orthodox churches have to be celibate. Anyway, I was just being technical.
As you said above, there are plenty of denominations that have women in pastoral roles. I wish Sr. Joan Chittister would be honest, before she dies, and join one of them!
I agree with you; these people (including plenty of men) seem to know the Catholic Church is the True Church, but rather than abandon it they’d rather pretend the truth can be conformed to their way of thinking.
Good morning to you as well (I never know when people are just getting on - as in “morning” - or working an odd shift where it is their “afternoon”). Still have to get a few things, but I have some days off to do it. Northern NJ will be a traffic nightmare today, since we have lower sales tax than neighboring NYC and our malls in the county nearest to NYC are closed on Sundays (”Blue Laws”).
