Pamela, you made a very interesting point and very true. I hope I don’t offend anyone but I think the whole “female priest” thing is for the most part a western complaint (US to be more specific). I have spoken to many Indian, Latin, Asian, etc. female catholics that have no problem at all with them not being able to become priest. Don’t get me wrong, I’m sure you can find some women in India, Latin, Asian countries that will question male dominated priest but my only point is that the numbers seem to be much higher in the US. Could it be this view of women wanting more because they somehow feel they have to do everything men do?
