I read the posts. You didn't visit the Sistine Chapel.  You: << I really enjoyed view from the top St Peter's Dome and the Basilica itself as well as the Sistine Chapel.>>

Psst.  There isn't a view from the Sistine Chapel.  That was kind of the point.  Unless you climbed the clerestory...

Well at least you now admit that you have read that I have been there, no apology from your earlier comments being incorrect?

Psst...it doesn't say anything about a view from the Sistine Chapel, only the view from the top of St Peter's Dome, nice diversion instead of just admitting that you hadn't read the comments before quoting.  As I said, happens all the time.

<p>Lol, Thanks for the laugh thardy!  I can see that one :D</p>

Goodnight, Jamblessed.  This was a lot of fun, but just toooo easy!  For you too I can see.  Who knew tourists could bring mountain climbing spikes to climb the clerestory for that great view from the Sistine Chapel?  Learn something new everyday!!

I think the Catholic Church has every right to set its own practices and policies, but it is silly to pretend that all Catholic women are satisfied with a subordinate or even "separate but equal" position within the church.  I work with a number of faithful Catholics, some who are in orders, who would desperately like to see things change.

You've got a dangling modifier in your sentence about St Peter's and the Sistine Chapel, PKA, that could cause your sentence to be read the way Thardy is insisting on doing. A person of good will would have backed off once you clarified. Thardy is not a person of good will, at least in this discussion.

Desperate sounds like a sense of urgency, Wow.  Even Jesus didn't hurry things.  

I'm sorry you know women that feel inferior or subordinate.  Many women have very important roles in the church, they don't have time to feel sorry for themselves.

Do you think self-pity is what drives the desire for justice, Jamblessed?

You mean to tell me great women in formative roles got there by complaining a lot?  I doubt it, they work smart not stupidly.

So what makes you think the women who are working for change from within in the Catholic Church are sitting around complaining and feeling sorry for themselves? Do you follow "Nuns on a Bus?" Great group of women I am honored to support.

Ah well, sentence structure is not my strong suit and as you have said, I have clarified.  I do find it funny how it's grown into mountain climbing through the creative fiction process of thardy.
