The Catholic Church has issued a declaration which puts “female ordination in same category of crime under church law as clerical sex abuse of minors.”
[Insert your own joke about how that means the Church will simply ignore it.]
But think about that one: Ordaining a woman is now in the same category as raping a little boy.
Phil Ferguson has written a brief but straight-forward letter to the women who remain in the Catholic Church.
You must now realize that you will never hold the same status as men; you will never be seen as an equal. It is time for you to stand up for yourself. It is time to take your money from the people that are holding you down. It is time for you to show your strength. It is time to use your feet and walk away from the Catholic Church. It is time to take your family, your spouse, your children and leave. If not for you, then do it for your daughters and sons. It is time for you to stand up and break the cycle.
I’m with Phil.
I really want to know why any self-respecting women would remain in a Church that treats them so poorly.
