Valley Woman Not A Catholic Priest Because Gender Does Matter

This woman is Not a Catholic Priest.                                                                 

Sigh. These older woman just don’t get it. There never will be women priests in the Catholic Church. Never. It is just not possible. It is settled doctrine.  The Church simply does not have the authority to ordain women.

Sr. Sara Butler once thought that women could be ordained, but after much prayer and study she realizes that she was wrong. Read her arguments against women priests here.

Here is another good explanation on why the Church does not ordain women. http://www.catholiceducation.org/articles/apologetics/ap0001.html

The fundamental reason that many people have a problem with the Church regarding women and the priesthood  is that our culture teaches that gender does not matter. Men and women are seen as interchangeable.

Ergo it doesn’t matter that Jesus was male and that he is the bridegroom.

The idea that gender is not specific to male and female is the main argument in favor of same sex marriage.

What nonsense.

It is a scientific fact that men and women are not biologically, anatomically the same or interchangeable. Men do not have the equipment to carry and bear a child. Women have more fat than muscle.

Not to mention that Men Are from Mars, Women are from Venus.

Even when a man, for example, undergoes a so called sex change operation, he does not in fact become a women. His DNA still marks him as a man. He still has male chromosomes. Surgery and hormones do not and cannot change that fact. He may look like a woman. He may talk like a woman. But he is a man.

We live in a delusional world where what one feels to be true is more important than what is true.

I will be posting more on the Church’s position on homosexual acts and same sex marriage soon.

Stay tuned.

    I’m curious to know where I can get information about women and the deaconate. My patron saint was a deaconess and a confessor in the 4th century. This is no longer possible in the church and I’m curious to know about that change.

    Priests have never been women and I’m fine with that. It’s the ancient tradition. Thank you for this post. I’m going to curl up with one of your links and read her points thoroughly.

    Sue,
    The short answer is that the terms deaconess and confessor had a different meaning in the early Church. (I will give you a longer answer next week.) Private confession was not common, for example. People who committed certain mortal sins entered into the Order of Penitents. This was a public penance that lasted several years. There was no official private confession.

    Who is your patron saint? A person married to a deacon was often called a deaconess. But I can’t recall a saint who was described as a deaconess. But then there are thousands of saints.
    Thank you for your kind words and your interest in my humble blog.
    God Bless
