[Vatican says will excommunicate women priests]
Long ago when homo sapiens entered the lands inhabited by the neanderthals, they encountered a creature that was bigger, faster, stronger, and more intelligent. For the age, the neanderthal was also more technologically advanced. What we had that they lacked was 'gender specific labor specialization'. And so it was,, we won. And they are no longer here.
Catholics may be backward, but they refuse to take part in the neanderthalization of the first world. This verges on a crisis in Europes case as they now encounter a new migration of peoples into their lands. A people very determined, completely virile, and quintessentialy homo sapien.
