And, back in the realm of theology and Scripture:

but a female cannot embody Christ as priest and as sacrifice on the altar, since these are embodied by "a" "particular" male, Jesus Christ.

Conversely, to suggest that a woman could "embody" the particular man Jesus Christ is to deny that Jesus Christ was actually incarnate as a man ... it is to deny the reality of the incarnation ... it is to resurrect the ancient Nestorian heresy.

Bingo! Go to the head of the class! I actually thought of that while I was running the mop machine, but I came back to find someone with cleaner floors had preceded me.

I still don’t get it, and have spent rather more of the day than I should have done researching the whys of it.

Still, thank you to all of you for trying to explain - this is something I am going to shove in the same part of my mind where I keep the Trinity, as something that simply is.
