Two stories today and both illustrate the same point.

Another silly ceremony has been conducted in Canada and AFP has run the headline, "Woman is ordained as Catholic priest in Canada".

In Ireland, Bishop William Lee has announced to the press that he is "not opposed" to women's ordination.

The media won't grasp this, because they are ideologically opposed to the truth of the matter, but it is a pretty simple one. A woman who wants to be ordained a priest is not a Catholic. A bishop who says women can be ordained is not a Catholic.

The Catholic religion is a set of beliefs. The thing you have to do to be a Catholic is to believe those beliefs. It's not an ethnicity. It's not a nationality.

It's really that simple.

In Ireland, laity have announced to the press that they are "not opposed" to removing errant bishops.
