Popes and theologians have presented many scriptural and theological explanations for the male priesthood.

I shan't waste time re-hashing them.

I maintain that, in addition to those explanations, I find that the most powerful practical argument against ordaining women is to be found in the manifest unfitness for ministry of those women who clamour most loudly to be ordained.

"Popes and theologians have presented many scriptural and theological explanations for the male priesthood."

Jesus choose 12 men as His Apostles. Popes, theologians and militant would-be priestesses may argue and speculate about why He choose only men, but none have argued that He choose only men.
