A friend of mine asked me on Sunday what I thought of Maureen Dowd’s piece in the New York Times. She’s convinced that since there’s an Apostolic Visitation of Women Religious, and there’s no priestesses, the Vatican must hate women.
I’ve been working sporadically on a response, and may post it eventually, but Michael Sean Winters’ reaction piece at America is superior to anything I could hope to write. It’s great, and that’s from someone who finds Winters’ writings too abrasive most of the time. If you’re interested, Fr. Z has a pretty decent post on it, too.
