Try to read this without rolling your eyes...

"Women can be Christ-like as well as any man, but we wouldn't choose a woman to play the role of Hamlet, right?"
This quotation comes from Janet Smith, the "chair of life ethics at Sacred Heart Major Seminary in Detroit," in her defense of an all-male priesthood, given in an interview with Christiane Amanpour.

People desperate to defend the indefensible say the darndest things.
