120. No, not okay!

Second-class citizens we are NOT. Although they do seem to want very much to keep us there.

Perhaps the Pope figured that if he threw a bone to one segment of the "outsiders" then all the rest would be grateful and stop complaining and take what they could get. Maybe some in (and supporters of) the gay community will be content with this. Maybe not.

I wish they'd remember how critically important women are. Even God Himself couldn't do that remarkable Thing He did, the way He intended (sending His only Son to live among and be "one of us," that is), WITHOUT A WOMAN. God the Almighty could simply have created a fully-formed adult Jesus-type manifestation to pop into the Temple one fine afternoon, or arrive on one of those flaming chariots with an escort of heraldic angels and Heavenly hosts and all that.

Feels as though Holy Mother (HAH! Now THAT is curious, too, isn't it?) Church really hasn't come very far along those lines at all, regardless how open-minded and forward-thinking the new Pope is regarded as being.
