Vatican: Female Priest is as bad as a Pedophile

This belief (that is so fundamental to the church) that Jesus thinks so little of women emphasizes a ‘grave’ and very severe flaw in the founding of the religion created to worship him. 

The Catholic Church on Thursday revised its in-house rules on sex abuse cases, extending the statute of limitations for such crimes from 10 to 20 years past the victim’s 18th birthday and speeding up the excommunication process for pedophile priests. But, curiously, the amended set of ecclesiastical laws also declares that any priest caught ordaining women will be designated as having committed a “grave crime,” the same phrase used to describe the abuse of children.Catholic Women’s Ordination, told AOL News. “To mention us in the same breath as pedophiles is disgusting and hugely insulting to women and the victims of pedophilia.”

Liberal Catholics pushing for church reform were shocked by the decree. “I find it appalling,” Pat Brown, spokeswoman for British organization

U.S. Catholic magazine Managing Editor Bryan Cones had criticized the new ruling before it was issued, calling it “a complete injustice to connect the aspirations of some women among the baptized to ordained ministry with what are some of the worst crimes that can be committed against the least of Christ’s members.”

Of course the church didn’t mind when female deacons and bishops played a large role in keeping the religion going, as Cahill points out in How the Irish Saved Civilization.
