Actually, do you know how hard it is to get excommunicated for realz? My ex just did it voluntarily. His reasoning for taking this step was that even though he could sit around and do nothing, he did not want to be counted among the "X thousand Catholics in the Milwaukee diocese." I think it took him about a year, and the silly thing is that excommunication is specifically set up so you can come back aaaaaany time you want.

Still, automatic excommunication to all female priests? That's just rude.

AND the people who ordained them... or were involved in the ordination. Don't forget that.

In my [admittedly, limited] experience, the Vatican's not too excited about women in general -- regardless of their profession.

This is begging for a huge protest with lesbian groups and equal rights activists. I can't blame the pope for being firm with his decision (c'mon, Christianity is a paternal society, so what do you expect), and Italy's not exactly the most progressive place out there since racism is still bad there, but he's asking for it.

I think you might be misusing the word "news," here. And you have the unnecessary word "priests," too.


Gruntle has been severely dissed by Pope Benny.
