A CNS story reports that U.S. Catholics' approval rating for bishops is the highest since the sex abuse scandal broke in January 2002. A Zogby poll, conducted by telephone interviews, of 1,505 self-identified Catholics provided the data.

    Little girls like to play dressup. Nancy Corran is no more a priest than is the keyboard on which I type. So let's welcome Father Nancy Corran and Father Logitech Cordless to the "community."

    I'm afraid you probably give the reporters of such events too much credit. Most of them I've run into in 25 years of "journalism" (which is now a dirty word to me) don't know enough about religion - let alone Catholicism - to identify legitimate ordinations, Masses, etc.

    As a woman I have never been bothered by women not being priests. I always felt if Our Lord wanted women priests he would (1)call them and (2)create a LEGITAMITE path to ordination despite what any bishop or Pope said. I don't see that it has happened in the past 2000 years...I believe the Popes and Bishops over the years have gotten this one right!
