From a few years back in 2004, the noted Joan Chittister,OSB, when speaking with a Buddist female monk (I thought they were called nuns…) explained to the monk-nun that true Christianity wasn’t discriminatory and patriarchal:
Or at least so says Pope Joan.
One is left to wonder, given that she doesn’t believe Christ instituted priesthood by ordaining the Apostles… Well doesn’t that reduce priestly ministry to just a function of a man-made (er, “person-made”) concept in her mind? If it does, why bother with the “man-made” (er, “person-made”) Catholic Church?
All things being equal, any denomination or self-appointed group would do.
But to go down that route, I suppose she would have to actually step away from the Catholic Church which has been her bread and butter, given her respectablility, and provided her so many platforms and opportunities over the years…
