Augustinian priest: Teaching that women are not like Jesus is 'heretical' Brian Roewe | Mar. 27, 2014
"The explanation for a male-only priesthood that views women as not fully in Jesus' likeness is a heretical teaching that implies women are not fully redeemed, said Augustinian Fr. John Shea in his second such letter since 2012 to U.S. bishops on the issue of women's ordination.
"This teaching that 'women are not fully in the likeness of Jesus' -- qualifying, as it does, as atheological explanation -- is utterly and demonstrably heretical.
"This teaching says that women are not fully redeemed by Jesus. This teaching says that women are not made whole by the saving favor of our God. This teaching says that the 'catholic' church is only truly 'catholic' for males," Shea wrote."
