Newsweek seems to be trying to outstrip even itself in its anti-Catholic, secularist biases. Why else would they employ someone as thick as Lisa Miller as a religion editor?
Miller has only one view of the Catholic Church: a secular institution like any other man-made construct. Therefore, it can be changed in any way, must be as a matter of fact, to suit prevailing pressures and mores.
Only someone who is a little thick can write story after story about how the Church has to get with the times and ordain women and not understand that the Catholic Church can’t ordain women. No matter what other Church and ecclesial communities do, the Church does not have the authority from her Founder – GOD – to ordain women.
It would be far more intelligent simply to rail on about how backward or stupid the Church and Pope are than to waste time proposing things that are impossible.
