Vatican: Excommunication for Female Priests

This is an interesting story, although not really surprising.  It appears that the Vatican wants to squash any movement that seeks to ordain women before it gets too far off the ground.  Many of the usual reasons are given, but here is one fun quote:

Monsignor Angelo Amato of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith said the Vatican wanted to provide bishops with a clear response on the issue.

A clear response, indeed.

  1. Meanwhile I wonder how many priests have been excommunicated for the sexual and violent abuse of children?

  2. A fair question if you ask me Sue.
