Why (among other reasons) women can't be priests (and shouldn't be altar servers, either)

And I was interested to see that ranking at no. 8 on the Herald's list of the top ten "Political/social science" bestsellers was, would you believe, The Communist Manifesto.

I couldn't agree more!

By the way, if it's said that Australia needs an Australian "head of state", and we *must* get rid of the British monarchy, why don't we invite one of the Crown Prince of Denmark's younguns to fill the role, as king or queen of Australia. They have Aussie blood flowing through the veins... sort of.

Better than a pinko president (or presidente).
