    Poor Bishop Krautler. He wants to change the unchangeable. By saying it is not dogma, he conveniently forgets how St. Pope John Paul II announced his teaching. Women cannot stand in for Christ who was a man as do ordained priests. You watch we will have liberals support a transgender male to be priests. It is amazing how how far liberal Catholics will go to destroy the Church made by Christ. St Michael protect us.
