Women should be able to become priests/ordained ministers

The many reasons that churches use to withhold women from ordination or the priesthood are quite varied, but the reasons make little difference because it is still patent discrimination against approx. 50% of the population due to a deep and long-lasting prejudice. Definitions: Discrimination: treatment or consideration of, or making a distinction in favor of or against, a person or thing based on the group, class, or category to which that person or thing belongs rather than on individua...
