What is so hard to understand? This religion doesn't allow
for women priests. It never will. It's impossible. Even if someday
a pope comes into office who would like to see it, he doesn't have
the authority to change the rule. It can NEVER be changed.

Obviously these women don't believe in the Magesterium of the
Catholic Church. That's fine. Leave. There are plenty of other
churches out there. They should pick one that fits their religious
beliefs instead of claiming to be Catholic .. which they aren't
really if they don't believe in the Magesterium of the Church.

You can't be 'Catholic' and not believe in the Magesterium.
It doesn't work that way. These women are protestants really.
They are christian, and they say they are in an act of 'protest'
against the Magesterium of the Catholic church. Thus ..

They aren't the first bunch to do this ...


By Julian Pettifer
BBC Radio 4's Crossing Continents

A woman has been ordained as a priest in a secret ceremony in central
Europe as an act of defiance against the Roman Catholic Church.

The woman who was "ordained" does not want to be identified

Three years ago, the Vatican moved decisively against an international
movement for the ordination of women when it excommunicated the so-
called Danube Seven.

Seven women had claimed the status of priests after a form of ordination
ceremony held on a boat moored on the river Danube.

Now a similar ceremony has taken place in a private chapel in central Europe.

To often everyone focus on the line "Wives submit to your husbands" and for get that The husband, and the children do the same, and viec versa. It is called showing respect. With that being said there is still stong roles for women in CHurch. Nuns, Deaconess, teachers, researchers. But A leadership role like being a preist is not the best role for a women to have. Even some Lutherean Churches agree with the RCC on the role of women in the church.

NOw I really do not understand what these secretly ordanded Priestesses hope to be able to accomplish in the RCC except to create a new faction of the RCC. since they will never be reconized by the Pope.

IMHO I feel that it has a lot to do with fear. Consider that many of the pagan religions had priestess and many of those were used in sexual rituals. A woman's sexuality is often feared by men due to the power it has over them. It is understandable then that women have many more restrictions placed on them by society to protect men from their sexual power.

No where in the Bible do you ever..Olde and new Testament find the instructions to define ones self by sexuality.....ever. Male or female. This is a concept totally overlooked by "Experts" in this field or most any field. Even by Christians too. It is however not covered in the bible for good reason. This, as you so eloquently state,.... is what the Hebrews were warned not to engage in and the very reason the pagan nations were destroyed. The pagan nations were wholesale engaging in this type of conduct to the "Glory of men". This is recorded in the Bible over and over, Olde Testament to the New Testament.
There is some truth to what you imply that most men I have ever met are totally oblivious to this facet...and what it means to them. The women are not. They tend to glorify and encourage it on thier terms in every facet of their extending it to what is called in the sociological "Options". This is the facet of which most men are dumber than a box of rocks. In this manner ...the women usurp authority over the men to get more "Options." This is not a concept taught to peoples today as the merchandizers would lose huge market share and be unable to keep so many peoples on the tredmill if it becomes exposed for what it is. This facet falls under the heading of "Occult" hidden. Concealed,Esoteric. As I stated ..most of the men I have met are dumber than a box of rocks in this arena. To much Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition blocking thier thinking apparatus.
This is why the prohibition against women priests. Because in time it would tend tword the glorification of the " Sacred Femminine". Those schooled in gnosticism and occult religions know of what I speak. Others including the bulk of Christians havent a clue..
A man who understands this concept and what it means across the board..will never fear a womans sexuality..ever. He knows that for woman to be sexual is ok..but she must have more..much more..especially in a multitasking world..he has the right to expect much more than sexuality for him to keep her. However..dont worry ..most men are way to dumb in their "Oil Shortage "mentality to think it through ..for they to are on the ignorant sexuality tredmill themselves..without the tools necessary to decipher the real nature of it.
