So you mean you're breeding stock for the Church. And how are you going to teach anyone to be like Christ when you act the way you do? You're not free...you're bound by the dogma of your religion and you think and do what you're told to by the male hierarchy, so you are a sheep, a breeder sheep.

Sorry, Morgana. That's the truth.
You are if you choose to go to a Seminary and become a priest...an option Catholic women do not have, and so they cannot become Bishops, Archbishops, Cardinals, the Pope, but you could.

Yawn.
Sure-that's why the venerate Mary. Whatever you say. She's the most venerated being in Christendom other than Christ, but it was all a ruse to get the pagans in the herd. Sure.
Didn't work with you, did it?
And Mary was used as breeding stock.

Catholic women do not need to be a priest, there are other duties Catholic lay women and Religious do. We don't need to be a priest to serve God, we do other tasks and God is quite pleased with us.

You're reliably crass, and have a real eye for "dumb". You think Conservative Democrat on the Hobby Lobby thread is smart, and he/she didn't know that employers paid in to employee health insurance plans.
Penis isn't the requirement. Being a priest is a requirement. Women cannot be priests.
I can't be a nun. To whom do I register my discrimination complaint?
i can get a lot more crass with people like you who "choose" to play stupid. Mary is nothing more than a statue and that is exactly why she was propped up to draw in the goddess worshipping pagans.

A penis is "a" requirement, continue to play dumb. nuns are not allowed in the governing Dan.....they have "vaginas' and are banned. Keep up the dumb blonde act you wear it well.

Women are not allowed in the governing of the RCC. We understand you do the "subservient" tasks but are not allowed in the governance of the institution.

Vivid imaginations!!! But it all fits in to place since the bible was written from the imaginations of men.

And besides, the Goddess told me that they are all full of shlt and to stay on them!!! My story and imagination is just as valid as theirs :)

I think it's disgusting and downright sinful what the church has done with Mary. Talk about idolatry...and they can sugar-coat it any way they want. I do not believe she has any extra powers whatsoever. If Jesus wanted her so highly venerated, He would have made that plain. He did not. LOL, one time on here I said every Catholic insists she was beautiful, and I said well, maybe she had a big nose or bad teeth. I sure got jumped on! SHE even admitted she needed a savior. I'm sure she was a good woman, but the RCC makes a fool out of her.

Fundies have fabulous imaginations, especially how they love to tell people their mythology is a fact.

For all we know she got pregnant from fooling around and made up the whole story of being visited by an angel to cover her indiscretions.

Anything is possible. Maybe it was a vivid dream, who knows. You have to admit, if that's how it went down then Mary is credited with the greatest lie ever told. If she pulled off such a deception then I myself would start a whole religion with Mary as the central deity. I would call it "Maryism" or "Maryanity". Only women could be leaders in my religion. Men would be scrubbing the floors of the churches.

LOL...Maryanity!!!
Maybe she was artificially impregnated by aliens???? I would find that more plausible and much more interesting!

I can't be a nun, a Prioress, a Mother Superior, etc.

I can't do those things.

To whom do I complain?

Very poor manners.

What man should have borne the Christ Child?
