As Luther wrote, we are all priests to one another, but there is no special ministry of priesthood that makes one person distinct from others.

      Once it does so there will be no reason not to have married priests, women priests, gay priests. And the repressed sexuality that warped so many priests in the past will end -- .   The question should be CAN they be priests. The answer is no. All sacraments require the proper matter and form. For example, Baptism requires water and the words baptizing in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Ordinatio.

The activists argue that ordaining women priests would solve the issue as effectively and should be prioritised. ‌”Empowering women would save the church,” said Kate McElwee, a. Women Can Be Priests. Despite the fact that the church had spoken definitively on the subject there are still some Catholics who believe women's ordination to the priesthood is a possibility.

Therefore it is worth going through the discussion again. Hilaire Belloc said, “Every argument is a theological argument.” Therefore we must be aware, in the argument for women’s ordination.

Pope Francis has sidestepped a request for married men to be ordained as priests and women to be ordained as deacons, saying the Roman Catholic Church should find other ways to.

Activists in the Catholic Church are pushing for the Vatican to allow women to be ordained as priests. They argue the bible does not state that only men can be priests—it's only a Catholic tradition and it should be done away with.
