Lisbon cardinal summoned to Rome following ordination comments
The Lisbon patriarch who recently said there was no fundamental theological obstacle to women's ordinations was summoned by the Papal Secretary of State, Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone, said a report in Vatican Insider.

(snip)

The Publico newspaper writes that Cardinal Policarpo was treated with extreme kindness "because the Vatican was afraid he would react negatively to a strong reprimand."

I read about the Cardinal's comments last week, and I now I can't help wondering - why was Bishop Morris pushed out for making less controversial comments than the Cardinal? And why does the Vatican find it so hard to cope with the very existence of females anyway? The church is becoming so regressive I'm expecting them to announce any day that the medieval church was right - women don't have souls after all.

2. They live in their own little world...
...not only figuratively, but literally as well. A world that is about 110 acres large and is its own little state.
