Of course. . .

"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." ~Teunis Bates, AolNews

It would be nice if there were more NEWS articles that addressed the issue of women and the church. The church is a stalwart bastion of patriarchal power. It will always be so and women should reject it.

Sadly they won't.
