    Women cannot be admitted to Holy Orders. Period. That's been professed infallibly by the Church. Other positions could be created for women, perhaps, but it wouldn't be the ordained diaconate.

    The church is full of communists, not Christians

    While I await the determination of the Holy See, I very much doubt women will be admitted to major orders. There is no tradition for such a thing.

    Though I won't be surprised if something like a formal (non-priestly) office of consecrated servants (meaning of "deacon") for women emerges, with the name "deaconess" as that DID exist at one time. It could be argued something like this already exists (consecrated virginity for women living in the world). It should also be noted that while there is no history I'm aware of for women receiving any degree of the ministerial priesthood, there is a long history of ABBESSES, the women who head women's monastic establishments and receive jurisdiction over their communities. While not made Priests, an Abbess traditionally received a ring and a crosier, like an Abbot or Bishop.

    Religious women who look like lesbians don't appear to be very serious about Jesus.

    Their position should be: "we condemn such an idea"
