Feb 27, 2020 by

by Jules Gomes, Church Militant: Catholic feminists in Western Europe are mounting an open “revolt” on March 1 demanding the ordination of women, while asserting that the creation of female priests is “only an interim solution” to their ultimate goal of abolishing the hierarchical priesthood. Jesus broke with all hierarchies and would not “even want to build a priesthood,” says Lisa Kötter, co-founder of German über-feminist movement Maria 2.0. Likewise, in...

Pope Vetoes Women Clergy, Affirms Christ as ‘Sole Redeemer’

Feb 13, 2020 by

by Jules Gomes, Church Militant: In a historic declaration — delighting traditionalists and infuriating progressives — Pope Francis emphatically rejected the ordination of women and married men, the advocacy of religious pluralism and support for a compromised ecumenism in his apostolic exhortation on the Amazon Synod.

The ACNA and the Priesthood of the Church

Apr 28, 2019 by

by Alice C. Linsley, Biblical Anthropology: This has been a difficult article to write due to the strength of my conviction that women’s ordination to the sacred order of priests is a dangerous innovation that will continue to cause division in the Anglican Church in North America. It is unfortunate that this practice carried over from the Episcopal Church. I have been speaking and writing on this subject for over 15 years, mainly from the perspective of Biblical Anthropology, but also from...
