The Pope's announcement that he would make a place for conservative Anglo-Catholic clergy in the Roman Catholic Church stopped the presses around the world yesterday. It was headline news in the NY Times.
I am absolutely underwhelmed at the news that La Tedescha Vecchia ("The Old German Lady" as the Italians call him) created a place for right wing Anglo Catholic clergy (terrified of contamination from anything female) in that vast club for confirmed bachelors known as the Roman Catholic clergy. To all those misogynist closet sisters I say, "Don't let the door hit ya where the Good Lord split ya!"
As to for the anticipated complaints "How dare you diss the Holy Father and righteous traditionalist Christians!" I say, "Tell it to the Ugandan Parliament!" (see previous post).
