Pope Still Trying Desperately To Alienate Any Rational Catholics Left In Church

So, the Vatican apparently thinks that women donning the priests' robes is an offense as heinous as pedophilia and heresy. All are punishable by excommunication (the gravest of Catholic punishments that they're allowed to get away with these days, if you don't count ruining millions of kids' childhoods and all that) according to a revision of Canon Law announced yesterday.

Somehow this is part of the Catholic Church's "effort" to tighten up the rules in response (I feel like there should be bunny ears all over this thing but I have to stop somewhere) to growing outrage over the fact that they're doing nothing about the rampant sexual abuse. I'm not sure how banning women from the priesthood has anything to do with male priests abusing children--male and female---but maybe I'm confused because of my tiny woman brain, fashioned out of the spare parts of a man.

  1. It goes to show the disdain that the church has for women. Being a woman is a crime in their eyes. You know, since it was a woman who tempted Adam.
