24. Sigh. You see what he's trying to do, right?
He's trying to appease the conservative right. He's trying to throw them a bone. It's nothing... it's just a sermon. People have a right to their opinions... You can be sure Obama will give equal time to people from all sorts of points of view.

Do you really think this is going to hurt him more than help him?

How about Catholics, huh? What about this:

In the Churchs latest statement on this matter, Pope John Paul II, using his full authority as the successor of Peter, states categorically that the Church cannot not will not, but cannot ordain women, now or in the future. The Catechism of the Catholic Church sets it out clearly, quoting the decree Inter insigniores:

Only a baptized man (vir) receives sacred ordination. The Lord Jesus chose men (viri) to form the college of the twelve apostles, and the apostles did the same when they chose collaborators to succeed them in their ministry. The college of bishops, with whom the priests are united in the priesthood, makes the college of the twelve an ever-present and ever-active reality until Christs return. The Church recognizes herself to be bound by this choice made by the Lord Himself. For this reason the ordination of women is not possible.


I'm just sayin' we have BIGGER THINGS TO WORRY ABOUT.
