We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Ann Barnhardt has a piece that better describes the gender confusion within the church. http://www.barnhardt.biz/the-one-about/the-one-about-why-priests-can-only-ever-be-men/ It likely will not please many but I suspect most people actually really know little about the historical roots of Christianity and why tradition matters.
