Catholic women march in Rome for female priesthood

By ALESSANDRA RIZZO, Associated Press WriterWed Oct 15, 12:23 PM ET

Catholic women seeking to become priests denounced the church’s ban on female ordination as sexist and unjust, bringing their campaign close to the Vatican on Wednesday during a worldwide gathering of bishops. [LOL! Er.. um… I mean… Gosh! How sad.]

The small group of women representing Catholic organizations from around the world marched across the Tiber River close to St. Peter’s Square, some wearing signs with the names of prominent women in the early days of the Roman Catholic Church. [I would love photos of that!]

This comment in the comment section is on target:

“Any of them scouring the streets for orphans and taking them back to their homes to raise and teach them? No? Any of them going into the women’s quarters to bring oppressed women (like Muslim ladies) the Gospel of Jesus Christ? No? Are they running the diocesan hospitals or the parish guesthouses for strangers? No?

Any of them teaching RCIA, teaching Catholicism to kids, or scouring the streets for the homeless and indigent, as in personally giving them food and clothes? Do they go to Mass and sing the Hours every day? Possibly, but they aren’t mentioning these essential deaconess activities, which one would think would also be the root of their spirituality and message to the world and the Vatican.

Nobody is stopping anyone from serving others like a deaconess historically did, in ways which even the most conservative would not deny them. Nothing could better prove their point, if they truly wanted to follow in the footsteps of the deaconesses of old.

Instead they pout. All show and no go.

I think I’ll go to Silicon Valley and complain that nobody will employ me as a programmer. Then I’ll go to the Academy of Motion Pictures and complain that Oscars have not been awarded to more people who don’t work in the industry.
