"If Christ Wanted Female Priests, He Would Have Ordained His Mother"

“There should be no more debate over the subject of female aspiring to be priests" according to Archbishop John Baptist Odama of Gulu, Uganda.

During a priestly ordination in Amuru on August 19 he said that "if Christ wanted female priests, he would have ordained his mother, Mary, first, but he did not do that.” He added, "I have a lot of quarrel with this call for female priests. It is bringing a lot of tension in the Church.”

Just because Mary Magdalene was called an "Apostle to the Apostles" by the Pope doesn't mean woman can be ordained. Pope John Paul 2 spoke that the church could never ordain a woman. Also and more important is where were the woman when Jesus instituted the priesthood?! There were none! Christ only ordained the 12 apostles in the upper room.

If the Pope ever says you can ordain women he is going against Holy Scripture and it would make him Pope NO MORE! He would be a heritic/antichrist! As Catholics we do not follow a man who speaks blasphemy! This is a liberal/evil agenda that has infected the Bride of Christ. If the Pope ever "ordains" a woman (the ordination would not be an ordination, woman inherently cannot have the soul changed in that way) I will confess he isn't the Pope! God have mercy if he does!

How can you continue to ignore Mary Magdalene followed Jesus with love, respect, intrigue and commitment? She went to the crypt unafraid and desperate to continue to serve, she saw her lord and he sent Her to the disciples with a message. He spoke to her first in His resurrected self.

Do you not follow the pope and his insights. Please let us be peaceful in our judgements and condemnations.
