Women’s Ordination as Most Serious Church Crime

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 17 luglio 2010

“The Vatican’s decision list women’s ordination in the same category as pedophiles and rapists is appalling, offensive, and a wake-up call for all Catholics around the world.  This new canonical declaration which names women’s ordination as a serious crime against the Roman Catholic Church is medieval at best.  The idea that a woman seeking to spread the message of God somehow “defiles” the Eucharist reveals an antiquated, backwards Church that still views women as “unclean” and unholy.   It is clear this recent decision was made out of fear of our growing numbers. The Vatican is using this attempt to extinguish the widespread call for women’s equality in the church. In a statement published on May 29, 2008 in L’Observatorio Romano, the Vatican’s official newspaper, all women who “attempt ordination” and the bishops who ordain them are automatically excommunicated, known as latae sententiae. Adding delicta gravioria as a scare tactic to already “excommunicated” women and the priest who support us is ridiculous and does not make a bit of difference. Excommunication did not work, and neither will this. In the face of one closed door after another, Catholic women will continue to make a way when there is none. We will continue to speak out. And women will continue to prophetically answer their call to priestly ordination with or without the Vatican’s approval.  Furthermore, we are extremely disheartened that the Vatican did not appropriately use this opportunity to meaningfully address the handling of sexual predators in its ranks. While some strides were made in this revision of the 2001 sexual abuse policy, it does not go far enough. We are calling on our members to take action: express their concern and call for real accountability by demanding that the hierarchy release the names of all accused Catholic leaders; reach out to survivors and take steps to make sure children are protected now; and, discontinue all financial contributions that benefit the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.”
Founded in 1975, the Women’s Ordination Conference is the oldest and largest organization that works to ordain women as priests, deacons and bishops into an inclusive and accountable Catholic church.  WOC represents the 63 percent of US Catholics, and millions of Catholics worldwide, who support women’s ordination. WOC also promotes new perspectives on ordination that call for more accountability and less separation between the clergy and laity. In 1976, the Pontifical Biblical Commission concluded that there is no valid scriptural reason for denying ordination to women. However, the Vatican ignored this finding and in 1994, Pope John Paul II officially forbade discussion of women’s ordination.  People have been fired from their jobs in Catholic institutions simply for discussing the issue.
