"A Step Forward for Married Men is a Giant Step Backward for Women"

..."So before we rejoice in the possibility of the inclusion of married priests, we must be sure we understand hierarchy's criteria for "proven men." What may seem like an incremental movement toward reform could actually result in the reinforcement of the church's restrictive teachings on women.
A change that appears progressive doesn't necessarily spell progress. True reform will only come when our church is a reflection of justice, not a manifestation of inequality. Until then, a step forward for married men could be a major step backward for women in the church."
