He ties the entire existence of women to maternity and women's entire identity to it. "Many things can change and have changed in cultural and social evolution, but there remains the fact that it is the woman who conceives, carries and gives birth to the sons and daughters of men. And this is not simply a biological fact, but also gives rise to a wealth of implications both for the woman herself, for her way of being, and for her relationships, for the way in which she positions herself with regard to human life and life in general. In calling the woman to the role of maternity, God has in an entirely special way entrusted the human being to her."
Well, a fork is also called "la forcella" (feminine article) not "il forcella" (masculine article) in Italian. Should I feel elevated or degraded by that? How about a whore which in Italian is called "la puttana" (feminine article) not "il puttana" (masculine article)?
I find calling an institution "female" which bars female ordained leadership, which bars females as official voices, downright insulting. It's like saying, "The Church is a woman and mother and I, a man, speak for the Church but love the Church; so you too should be content that I love you but I will do all the speaking for you while you are off birthing children like a good mommy." With all male ordained leaders, with all male official voices, no matter what gender article one uses, the Church is masculine because it is a festoon of male hegemony.
But, the really comical statement is this, "And here I would like to emphasize that women have a particular sensibility for 'matters of God', especially in helping us to understand mercy, tenderness and the love that God has for us." This is ridiculously sexist, painting women as fluffy clouds billowing around giving all the hugs, rainbows and smiley faces of the world. But, it also makes one question if he thinks women are so gosh-darned superior at "matters of God", why aren't they priests? Seems like they are the natural choice if you accept Francis' statement.
I edited this article since original publication after seeing a more complete transcript of the pope's comments.
