Wait what Pope-style
The pope said this with a straight face?
"[Women priests] cannot be done. Pope St. John Paul II, after long, long intense discussions [and] long reflection, said so clearly. Not because women don't have the capacity. Look, in the church women are more important than men. ... The Church is the bride of Jesus Christ. And the Madonna is more important than popes and bishops and priests." (source)
Suuuure they are. As long as they're all maternal and shit, and don't want to actually have any say.
That’s incoherent and insulting to reason. Not that reason has anything at all to do with it.
