Pink smoke rises at the Vatican

pink smokeMost Catholics are waiting to see white or black smoke out of the chimney from the Sistine Chapel to find out when the new pope will be selected by the Papal Conclave.

However, there was pink smoke in air in Rome on Tuesday afternoon.

A group of women released pink smoke outside the Vatican to protest the church. They’re calling for the Catholic Church to lift the ban on the ordination of women. Currently women cannot be a priest, cardinal or pope.

    Good luck with that. The Catholic Church changes for no one and that is one reason why there are less people who attend.

    The Church is the BRIDE of Christ and the priest acts in the person of Christ. Christ was not a woman. You cannot have a woman acting in his person. Women are not fathers and therefore it impossible for them to be priests, no matter how much you wish it to be so. If you want your women priests go and join another church.The Catholic Church is a supernatural gift of God, not an earthly institution. That is the ONLY reason it has existed for over 2000 years, despite the sins of its members. I'd rather have a small, faithful, church, than one that bends to every whim of the human ego, particularly the feminist variety. True feminists embrace their femininity, rather than try to become more like men. Stop the war on men, already. The sexes are complimentary not opposed to one another. The Church upholds the Mother of God as the most perfect disciple. There are countless female saints and 4 great women saints who have received the title "Doctor of the Church".

    Hmm. Interesting logic, Jennifer. As Bride of Christ, the church must not have men in it?
