Recently, yet another article on why a male-only Catholic priesthood is sensible has been making the rounds of Facebook.

Question: So many opportunities exist for women in the Church, why are you so concerned about the priesthood? Women can be parish council presidents, Sunday school teachers, the wives of priests, why do they need more? Why can't you be satisfied with what you already have?
