Catholic World News - May 27, 2013

    If at first you don't succeed, try, try and try again. Eventually, you will wear down the opposition, who will simply become utterly fatigued at resisting your nonsensical agenda, and then you can impose your will on all those who can see what your asinine measure will lead to, but can no longer resist your diktat because of sheer weariness. Your Satan-inspired stamina and energetic resolve will win the day.

    Their supposed bishops aren't bishops anyway and this is the infallible teaching of the church. They are really only playing at "dress ups" so if they want to employ women in the masquerade that is their collective foolishness. More serious Anglicans will come home to Rome as a result.
