Does the Vatican care about women and children?

 I have never been as angry at the Pope as I am now.  He says that the child abuse commited by Catholic Priests was a 'grave crime'. This is very true but then he said that  whoever ordains a woman would be excommunicated as they would be commiting a 'grave crime'. To put these two actions on the same level is absoloutley shocking to me. From a child's point of view when I go to church and am given communion by a woman I hardly notice and if I do it doesn't matter. However, if I was abused I would be so upset and distraught I certainly would have minded to the deepest extent. This just shows you how I feel about the two diffrent actions. The Catholic church now needs to demonstrate that it does value women and children.

  1. Believe me, Maelo, many Catholic men and women share your view. We might accept the Papacy as an office, but it doesn't mean we accept everything the current office holder says!

  2. Dear MS Rigg,
    How nice to hear from you again. The pope does not seem to have understanding and compassion.

  3. Wholeheartedly support your campaign, Maelo. I've campaigned on this issue since before you were born.

    Have a look at my blog for what I've been saying today.
