    It's not all of it though.

    St. Thomas of Aquinas also referred to Mary Magdalene as the apostle of the apostles. Women were highly respected for being the ones who actually stuck around when the **** went flying, so to speak. Aquinas gets part of his seemingly contradictory views on women from Aristotle, the views that hold women in higher regard come from a theological standpoint in his theory of the rational soul. At least that's how I understand it from briefly looking into it. I don't know if it really interests me enough to look into it further at this point but if it does with you I recommend getting the whole picture.
    I believe half of the things I say and say half of the things I believe.

    Whoa - nor am I a Catholic theologian myself.

    I have done some research on women as priests, and it helps having an Aunt who has been a Sister of Charity for 55 years!

    And only having male apostles? Another coincidence?

    The morality of abortion is not a religious belief, any more than the morality of slavery, apartheid, rape, larceny, murder or arson is a religious belief. These are norms of the natural law of mankind and can be legislated even in a completely religionless society.

    How many of you jumping up and down here excused that case?
    All of the ones that bare their teeth when they hear the word "Catholic".

    Did you know that the Jews were the only civilization to not have women priests?

    Another fact for those claiming that the Church is misogynistic. When Jesus was crucified, the apostles ran away (except for John), and Peter denied Jesus 3 times. Where were the women? They were at the foot of the cross. If you think the Church is sexist, then you don't understand Holy Mother Church.
