He needs a sex change; the only avenue for females to break the glass ceiling, to move up the corporate ladder, in the currently -- and wrongly -- male-controlled Roman Catholicism.

Who cares what the Vatican thinks? The Pope protected pedophiles and believes in the invisible sky-daddy. I hardly think that makes them qualified.

When the vatican stops telling women what to do with their bodies, steps up to the plate and tells a man not to have a vasectomy? Never heard that one out of a priest's mouth and stops shimmying down the boxers of thousands of young boys and hiding behind the cloth we will listen....maybe!
Why would any women or man want to go th a church where women are treated like second class citizens? would you let your daughters work for a company like this? Would you give them money? Would you ban a store with a known pedophile in your town?

Thought Not!

The College of Cardinals selected their guy - Joseph Alois Ratzinger, a former member of the Hitler Youth, who was assigned to the Sacred Congregaton of the Holy Office," also know as The Inquisition and the author of De delictis gravioribus, which restated the confidentiality of internal Church investigations into criminal accusations against priests, including child sexual abuse.
AND The Nobel Prize Committee selected their guy - Robert Edwards, the developer of IVF techniques that allow infertile couples the possibility of having their own child.
Following in the tradition of 13th century thinking, celibate priests in the Catholic Church condemn the use of IVF in humans because it leads to reproduction without the "conjugal act" of sexual intercourse. However, they feel that it's important to keep secret the illegal activities of numerous priests who prefer to force non-reproductive sex on children.

The Vatican should think twice about getting into a turf war when they critisize the world of science. I think science can prove alot of those people they call saints where anything but saints. Remember the adage about living in glass houses.

OMG, who the F cares what the Vatican has to say about anything?

This is such a clerical, out of touch pronouncement that simply has no relevence in today's world. Before they go after anything or anyone outside their Vatical walls, they need to clean up their own unfinished business with the pedophilia issue. No confession, no credibility.

Oh come now. For a religion with its feet firmly planted in the 13th century, sure it is perplexed. This is a religion that was perplexed by Galileo, so what else is new. Give the Catholic Church another 500 years and just maybe it perplexity will dissolve.

Your argument totally fails because you are making the assumption that nothing will change between now and 500 years.

I'm sure RedRat is referring to perplexity on this particular issue -- I'm equally sure you're correct in that Vatican spokesfolks will continue to profess perplexity about future scientific advances and modernity in general whenever they comprise or imply a challenge to church dogma and/or papal pronouncements.

Ok, so while acknowledging that his contributions were important and ground-breaking, Bishop Ignazio Carrasco de Paula believes that Robert G. Edwards should be punished by being passed-over for the Nobel Prize simply because *other people* have used his discoveries to further activities which upset de Paula's archaic sensibilities? He then confounds this logical fallacy by recommending as alternative recipients Ernest McCullock and James Till who discovered stem cells, another discovery which has been put to uses found reprehensible by the Bishop's 16th century world-view. Is this contradictory pronouncement hyp.ocrisy, stu.pidity or careles.sness? With the Catho.lic Chu.rch, it's hard to know.

Religion can honor who they like. So can Science. Neither has the right to control the other.

Methinks the Vatican still has a lot of control problems to deal with.

I've said it before. 'Spirituality' is personal while 'religion' is tribal.
90% of what makes up religion has nothing to do with spiritual journeys or the veneration of superbeings. Its community tribalism pure and simple. More than one religion has done away with diety worship altogether. They venerate their ancestors, follow the buddha or obey Confucius's rule for a well ordered society. Or, like the Catholic church, they seek to impose dogmatic  right-wing social theory on their congregants.

So it's the "conjugal act" or nothing? Wut?
02:41 PM on 10/06/2010
And by conjugal, they mean only when the intention of the couple married in the Catholic Church intend to 'make babies'. No enjoyment otherwise allowed under any circumstances for any reason.

You are living in a nightmare. The church does not like science, what else is new?
