Women Priests Ordained, Warned

The Roman Catholic Church does not approve of womens serving as priests.

It was not "any given Sunday" in Boston this past week.  Three women say they were ordained as Roman Catholic priests.  Another was ordained as a deacon.  Some Christian churches allow women to be leaders in the church, but Catholicism isn't one of them.

The women were part of an activist group trying to pressure the Roman Catholic Church to change its rules. The Vatican warned before the ceremony that women taking part would be excommunicated, which is the most serious penalty in the eyes of the Roman Catholic Church. 

What do you think about the policy or the actions of the women?
