Only Leftist Feminists could be stunned by something that was coming at them for forty years.
What they mean by "stunned," however, is what a two-year old means when it screams itself purple with rage at the word: "No."

Lol. Great comment and analogy.

The Vatican also rebuked the nuns for spending too much time “promoting issues of social justice” while failing to speak out often enough about “issues of crucial importance to the life of the church and society,” such as abortion and gay marriage.

There was no such rebuke. This is the lie the media is using to bash the Church with.

“As a Catholic woman, I can’t imagine much that would be worse than having a woman priest.”

A woman bishop. That would be worse! :)

You wrote:

“So, in the early church, women acted as teachers, leaders, and apostles.”

False. No woman was ever an apostle except as an honorific for their zeal for the faith. No woman led an orthodox church either. By the way, some scholars believe “Junia” is actually “Junianus”. In any case Andronicus and Junia[nus] were apostles in the sense of Phil 2:25, 2 Cor 8:23 where the word is translated as “messengers”.

pedophiles occur in every profession, and the dirty little secret is back in the 1970’s professionals like myself were told not to report it because it wasn’t bad for kids... child abusers in California were take out of prison and given “outpatient” treatment, and Newsweek had an article saying we shouldn’t report fathers who have sex with their young daughters because if he went to jail, it would destroy the family.

Blame the Johns Hopkins sex abuse treatment program that encouraged “treatment” not removal of the priests...

and the rate of child sexual abuse is high enough to suggest it isn’t only priests: There is a cdc report where 10 percent of “hetero” kids and 18 percent of “homosexual” kids had sexual intercourse under age 13. Needless to say, that report hasn’t made it into the mainstream media.

Father Pfleger has been transferred elsewhere, so he is being corrected (and he may or may not obey). However, Pfleger isn’t promoting transhumanism and evolving to a higher power in his church, just leftism...
