“Can you ordain a hermaphrodite?”
"Santa Clara University theology professor says Church had long history of ordaining women that ended because of 'virulent misogyny'
Gary Macy, a professor of theology at Jesuit-run Santa Clara University, told attendees at a Monday night lecture at the Vanderbilt University Divinity School in Nashville, Tennessee, there is little room for historical doubt that women were ordained in the Catholic Church until about the end of the 12th century.. historical evidence is overwhelming that for much of the church’s history, the ordination of women was a fact.”
