Pope Francis says women will never be priests in the Catholic church

Woman kisses pope's hand as he arrives to celebrate private Mass at Church of the Gesu in Rome

When be questioned by a Swedish journalist Pope Francis explained : “Saint Pope John Paul II had the last clear word on this and it stands, this stands,” Francis said in his initial response, referring to a 1994 document stating that women could never join the priesthood. The pope went on to say women did “many other things better than men”, emphasising what has been called the “feminine dimension of the church”. This won’t appease feminist catholics or simply those who favour more gender equality.

  1. It is wrong to exclude women from practising their beliefs. Anyone should be able to believe and say what they want, meaning that what Pope Francis said was wrong, but he is aloud to believe and say what he wants.

  3. i think the pope is wrong, because women should be allowed to do anything in their church as they please, whether it might be to have daily prayers or be a leader. Since Christians see God as a male, some men in the church believe that women are not capable of giving out the message of god as well a men.
