At Last! Women Priests!
and with style...
[Pictured, newly ordained women priests in red vinyl faux-patent-leather vestments! Or is it that wet-look slippery satin?]
"'God has called me,' said Juanita Cordero, a Los Gatos woman who will soon be ordained as a deacon and aims to be a priest by 2007. 'Growing up it was never a possibility because it was always for men.' Cordero, a former nun, is among 120 women enrolled in the Roman Catholic Womenpriests program, which has been boldly ordaining groups of women as priests and deacons. A dozen will be ordained in Pittsburgh on July 31, including Cordero and women from Carmel and Pismo Beach. Another woman -- fearful that her bishop will quickly excommunicate her -- will only say she's from the Bay Area." -taken from the Cafeteria Is Closed.
#1) There is no such thing in the Roman Catholic Church known as "Roman Catholic Womenpriests program".
#2) Women are not eligible for ordination in the Latin Rite Church, better known as the Roman Catholic Church.
#3) The woman who said she was afraid that her Bishop would excommunicate her if she revealed her identity. Yeah, she would be automatically excommunicated at her so-called ordination. Nevertheless, with her beliefs as they are, she is already virtually excommunicate now!
