The Vatican issues an incredibly strong document clarifiying the evils of child abuse in the church. In the next line it refers to the crimes of ordaining women or women being ordained. Then various apologists backtrack and say these two matters are totally unconnected. Why may I ask, were they published on the same page? And why did they choose the same week that the Anglican Church is struggling with the issue of women bishops?
Either the Holy See is very stupid - or being very disingenuous. The juxtaposition of these two subjects and the timing, could not be worse.
