Shakesville: Stay Classy, Catholic Church

"You just can't make this stuff up:
The Vatican today made the "attempted ordination" of women one of the gravest crimes under church law, putting it in the same category as clerical sex abuse of minors, heresy and schism.

So, just to be clear: According to the Catholic Church, ordaining a woman is just as bad as raping a child. Or, if you prefer, raping a child is only as a bad as attempting to ordain a woman.

You got your virulent misogyny in my diminishment of sexual assault!

All I can do is laugh bitterly at this point.

Does that mean that just like in the case of child abuse, priests ordaining women will just get reassigned and have it covered up?

Looks like everyone who criticized Sinead O'Connor in 1992 over her SNL appearance owes her a big apology.
