If His Popishness canna forgive paedophile priests and hence keep them in the church, then how can he ensure there'll be enough priests to herd the world's unruly flocks?
Proposed solution: 1. Let women become priests. 2. Let clergy marry - each other. (Hetero marriages, natch.)
In that event, your popishness, sir, will be all set to grow your own suitably indoctrinated band of insufferably moralizing doom-sayers.
Problem: If you allow women to become priests, won't they be priestesses? In which case, there'd be the hint of paganism - da devil! - having entered the church.
If you allow priests to marry priestesses, might not all that frolicking and child-rearing divert attention from your church's cause of world domination?
