The picture says it all, as the son joins his father like that.

If his own daughter joined her father like that I don't believe the church officials would see it all as being cute.

It's well known the Catholic Church do NOT want female priests.

I feel sorry for his daughter!

I feel sorry for his whole family.

The RCC's track record of following Matthew 25:31-46 and Luke 10:25-37 is not good.

But then the same can be said about all of us.
