They just won't stop.
They refuse to accept official Catholic teaching that women cannot now or ever be Roman Catholic priests. They even believe that Christ's Holy Catholic Church has previously had female bishops and the talk of bringing back deaconesses has emboldened them.
quote: "All across the Mediterranean, early Christian frescoes and bas reliefs carry the names of women deacons and even bishops — such as Phoebe, Helaria, Ausonia, Euphemia and Theodora.Can't happen. But you can't tell tell these people, they refuse to listen or they are just too ignorant to grasp the reality of the Catholic faith.
Yet in 1994, Pope John Paul II not only decreed that women are definitively excluded from the priesthood, he even banned all discussion of the topic.
Pope Francis broke that taboo last month when he announced he would create a commission to study whether women can serve as deacons as they did in early Christianity.
Seizing this new sign of openness, supporters of a female priesthood converged on Rome this week, to coincide with the Vatican's Jubilee for the all-male clergy."
The "new sign of openness" is not about female priests, but rather deacons. Of course this can of worms translates as "stepping stone" to these people.
quote: "Panelist Jamie Manson, columnist and book editor at the National Catholic Reporter, said a female priesthood would be an important signal in a world where women suffer disproportionately from violence, poverty, lack of education and trafficking.Female priests wouldn't make any different at all to the "suffering" women in the world any more than female queens or presidents have. We live in a suffering world because evil is spreading its hatred and lies and ignorant people lap it up like dogs to vomit. If these women truly wanted to help the suffering in the world they would devoutly practice the AUTHENTIC Catholic faith and spread that around the world as Jesus Christ commanded.
"Imagine if a church of one billion people, with this charismatic, rock star pope, suddenly said to the world, that women are equal to men," Manson said. "Imagine the power that would have over cultures across the world, where this patriarchal idea of women's subservience to men is at the root of all that women suffer globally."
But of course, some "Vatican official" received these heretics furthering their grand delusions, rather than correcting them of their heretical beliefs.
quote: "There are some 150 women worldwide who function as priests, in defiance of the Catholic Church. They perform baptisms and weddings and celebrate mass in house churches.
But after Pope Benedict issued a decree in 2010, all those women were automatically excommunicated from the church.
Some of those pioneering women priests also came to Rome this week, and they scored another first.
Janice Sevré-Duszynska, who was ordained by a bishop in Kentucky in 2008, says she and another woman were received by an official in the Secretariat of State, one of the Vatican's top departments.
"We talked to a wonderful priest, we were able to give our letter to Pope Francis, our petition to lift our excommunciations and stop all punishments against our supporters as well as begin a dialogue with women priests," she said."
God give us authentic clergy who correct heretics in their error and spread the true Holy Catholic Faith to the world.
