On Men in Skirts

Dear Pope Benedict, or may I call you Benny?

I note that your Vatican has declared it gravely sinful for a woman to be ordained.

I must congratulate you for following Christ's example in this, for as your church points out, he chose no women among his disciples.

I would, however, urge you to follow his teachings more closely. As you will also be aware, his choice was much more tightly circumscribed - he chose only practising Jews as his disciples.

I therefore urge you to declare that ordination of anyone who is not a practising Jew as a priest in the Roman Catholic church should also be noted as a grave crime against canon law, and any such should be expelled from the priesthood immediately.

Hello?

Benny, are you still there?
