Because how can a priest speak the word of God if she doesn't pee standing up?

Salon has this pretty interesting story on rogue female priests who are risking excommunication by running around and ordaining each other.

Not that I think they have a chance of mitigating the Catholic Church's sky-high evil rating, but it's nice that they're giving it a try:

"It is a sin for the Church to discriminate against women and blame God for it," [organizer Joan Clark Houk] declared. "In obedience to the Gospel of Jesus, I will disobey this unjust law."

Yeah, the church is still sticking with that old chestnut about priests needing to be made in the image of Jesus, and by "image of Jesus," they mean "penis."

Didn't y'all see The Last Temptation of Christ?

Jesus is wiry but still hot. Mary is hot but later gets collagen and it ruins her looks, and Judas is a bad lieutenant.
