    The Pope is the Bishop of the Church and as such his role is to discern the will of God, NOT to keep unity of the Church.

    There role should be restricted to making sandwiches.
    Does the Church have some great need of sandwiches? That must have passed me by as well.

    I mean, whats so wrong with women? If God made us in his own image, well, whose to say S/he is not a woman?

    And lets face it, we may not have had the horror stories about paedophiles if women were the priests.

    Women priests could actually halt the decline of the Church, after the initial hysteria died down, couldn't they?
    Let's keep praying, eh?

    We live in hope.

    Maybe we'll get a female messiah too.

    Every parish needs their Mrs. Doyle. A very necessary role that won't be screwed up by their femaleness.

    You were probably too busy gossiping.

    You'll find that when religious leaders consult God, they discover that his will coincides with their own to an extraordinary degree.
