I have said for as long as I can remember that women deserve leadership roles in Christian faith such as Catholicism. Not only was I raised Catholic--before converting to a Protestant faith--but I grew up with four sisters, all of which are incredibly intelligent and are capable of doing most anything a man could do in the work-a-day world...if not better.

So why is it that the Catholic faith have relegated women to lesser roles within the hierarchy? First of all, were talking 2000 years of thinking a certain way. But is it what God intended?

A new/old controversy has arisen with the election of a new pope in the works. Can things be changed? Will we see women Priests, Cardinals, Bishops, and maybe one day...a Pope?
