If the Vatican is trying to restore the impression that its moral sense is intact, issuing a document that equates pedophilia with the ordination of women doesn’t really do that.
I think this statement cuts right to the heart of the matter.

I would say quite a lot fewer than men, and orders of magnitude less than Catholic priests. Female priests? Sounds like an idea whose time has come. If not for the reputation of the church, then at least do it for the children.
