This is HUGE!
That’s not “HUGE”. That’s precisely what you’d expect, and it will have almost no real-world affect at all.
Unless you can point me to a legal case where a woman sued the Catholic Church because women are barred from becoming priests.
The ACLU is decidedly lukewarm on this, but I’m fine with anything like this. I think the Ku Klux Klan should be allowed to have their marches wherever they like, too. Because there comes a point where “freedom of speech” means something, and you either agree with it or you don’t. And there comes a point where “separation of church and state” means something, and you either agree with it or you don’t.
And, like my opinion on Klan marches, the hope would be that the more the public is exposed to this sort of gibberish, the more they will realise that religion is a storehouse for bankrupt ideas.
