Another remarkably lame argument for women's ordination
Here’s the evidence: the fresco shows a female figure with her arms raised, as if in prayer.
OK, so in the early Church women prayed. Does that come as a surprise?
Maybe the syllogism looks like this:
- Priests pray
- Women in the early Church prayed
- Therefore women in the early Church were priests.
Find that logic compelling? Neither do I. Actually, I think the woman on the fresco is signaling a touchdown.
