Pundits continue to praise, condemn Pope for overture to Anglicans
October 29, 2009
Over a week after the Vatican announced the Pope’s intention to create personal ordinariates that would allow Anglican communities to enter the Catholic Church, op-ed writers continue to praise and condemn the Pontiff. Reactions range from “There'll be some bumps in the road, but we're headed home at last. Hallelujah!” (first link) to “That women are or should be subservient to male hierarchies is an unacceptable superstition (practice) in need of an exorcism” (last link).
