Pope Benedict XVI is going to go to England, see the side of a bus and change the entire church because you know the best advice in life always comes from the side of a bus. That’s what some womyn’s group is hoping will happen when the Pope goes to England.
One group of women, Catholic Women’s Ordination (CWO), will have its message plastered on the side of the buses as they travel along key routes, including past Westminster Hall, at the Palace of Westminster, where the pope is set to deliver a speech to Britain’s civic society on September 17.
The group has paid 15,000 pounds ($23,130) for 15 buses to carry the message “Pope Benedict – Ordain Women Now!” for a month.
“We do not want to be disruptive, but I think the church has got to change or it will not survive,” CWO spokeswoman Pat Brown told Reuters.
So they have the best interests of the Church at heart, right? Not their own interest?
These liberal groups keep thinking that the Church is like the government that if they keep pushing and yelling they’ll eventually get their way. They think they just have to wait -kinda’ like waiting for a bus that was scheduled to come in the 1960’s but they’re going to keep on waiting.
My advice – Keep waiting for that bus. It might be a while. Settle in. Grab a book. Why not make it the Catholic Catechism?

Why are they waiting for him to ordain them? Since they are unaware of his inability to do so, perhaps they could just get together in someone's home and have an "ordaining" party. BYOB.

Hahah! Love the last line!
@Elm – BYOB? Bring Your Own Bishop? Hmmm….
This is why I don't like joining the "Catholic Woman's anything" group. If I wanted to join a Catholic Woman's group, I'd have entered the convent! Most of them are about women's lib and politics of the Church…Yuck! My advice to those women? Go home, enjoy Catholic marriage, get behind your husbands and pop out a few Catholic kids to correct your faults!

I hope they don't gabble about the riches of the Church and how that should be given to the poor. Because spending 15,000 pounds for NOTHING, not even beautiful, lasting art and cultural heritage in church buildings, is kinda… well.

They think the whole gimmick will draw attention to them and their "suffering" in an oppressive, patriarchal Church, which is what you expect from these adolescent groups. Of course it is ironic that the reason they can afford to spend £15,000 on the adverts is because must of them now have the pensioner's bus pass (free public transport), so the priests and religious among them can dip into their Church paid salaries to attack the very people who are paying their wages and who will pay for their nursing homes! Interestingly, Pat Brown has it wrong – the Church is surviving – flourishing, they are the ones who are dying out. Time and again I ask the question, when are they leaving? If they want to bring "life" to an dying institution, then they pop over to the Anglicans.

I thought they were ALREADY ordained? Why do they need to fret out? Are they not confident that their so called "women ordination" was factually defective so they still recognize the legitimacy of the Pope's…
Sorry gals, you better lock yourself in the convent… hardly you don't know any of those thing do you?
The Church "will not survive?!!" where did this m%*$#b got those crap? It's their so called "Womyn Oridnation" that would be frowned at.
Long live the Pope!

Yet another reason to breathe a sigh of relief that the English will disappear in 100 more years.

Wow, look all the good that womyn priestesses did for the whole progressive wing of the Anglicans…emptying their churches out faster than a skunk attack. Most of their ordained neo-Druids, Wiccan-lites are working in other fields. One factor in having these ladies pretend to be ordained is that they can keep the same haircuts, clothes and shoes as their myn counterparts.
