Are Women Priests Awesome?

Women priests, commonly known as "priestesses," awesome or not so awesome? That depends on who you speak to. Katherine Jefferts Schori thinks they are.

Justin Goofing Off With Priestesses

So does Justin Welby, the chino-wearing leader of the Worldwide Anglican Non Communion (WANC).

On the other hand, Archbishop Okoh, who leads Nigeria's 20 million+ Anglicans, takes a dim view of priestesses. So does the Pope, the Ecumenical Patriarch and the Bishop of Fort Worth, Jack Iker.

If You Don't Ordain Women No One Will Go To Church

The conservative-minded Anglican Church in North America (ACNA) can't quite make up its mind and produced a report, outlining arguments pro and con. Both sides of the issue, says the report, have Godly integrity.

Is She or Isn't She

They do? One side emerged from God-hating feminist cultural Marxism and the other didn't. Likewise, one side destroyed Anglican sacramental unity, turning WAC (Worldwide Anglican Communion) into WANC, and the other didn't. And who was it that shipwrecked the chances of Anglican unity with the great churches of the East and West?

As you reflect on these difficult questions, I'll leave you with a short rhyme.

Woman priest? No such beast.

They must have to look long and hard, near and far, to find such homely women to be WANCers.


Isn't gender just a construct - like race? Aren't all women men and all men women? Ask Bruce Jenner. He's been pimping his 'new book' on how he had his junk removed. Sure, a man still has XY chromosomes, but it's only a matter of time before that's fixed. And quite frankly, those women are all ugly enough to pass as men.

Go ahead and call me snotty, buuuuuuuut that's a bunch of ugly "women." Ol' what's his face fits right in.

How in the heck did they manage to have that many old ugly women in one place? It's down right scary.

Bar is pulls it off well. Maybe Melania could.

Juliette, I have to agree, Barbie does it best.

LSP said...

It's right scary, Brig.

LSP said...

Adrienne, we were told, as in "settled science", that if we didn't ordain them no one would take us seriously.


LSP said...

LL, look closely. Maybe some of them are men.

But hey, gender's a construct, like race, so whatever. Ask Ms. Dolezal and Cait.

I just can not agree with women being priests or ordained anything in the church. They have their places (yes, I said it, sue me, I have nothing); but not as the head.

I hope you all have a safe, blessed week.

LSP said...

Linda, I agree. These people have no business in the priesthood.
