    from really trashing the Catholic Church in America are the nuns.  I was very fortunate to know Pat Farrell, who was the president of the nun's union (Conference of Women Religious?).  She earns and is due a great deal of respect.  It's truly offensive that she is not at least the equivalent of a priest, and she'd be a better archbishop than any of that whole lot.

      would also make an awesome Cardinal.  

      It's incredibly irritating that the RC church doesn't ordain women.  It would solve a huge amount of their problems if they did - and if they allowed priests (of either gender) to marry.

        ..to a lot of us Catholics too.

        Years ago we had a pastor who wrote a letter that was published in the Columbus Dispatch, urging the Church to consider resuming allowing priests to marry. When I congratulated him on that, he said that he was in favor of ordaining women too. He later left the priesthood to marry. We now have a pissant priest who's been harassing a gay member of our choir.
