Cardinal Casper on the presence of women in the clergy in the Anglican Communion: 

As I stated when addressing the Church of England’s House of Bishops in 2006, for us this decision to ordain women implies a turning away from the common position of all churches of the first millennium, that is, not only the Catholic Church but also the Oriental Orthodox and the Orthodox churches.

Seriously?  What were the positions of these churches in the first millennium on airplanes?  Atoms?  Evolution?  Slavery?  Why are the women still being thrown under the bus (with the LGTBQQ folk) while Rome is not really trying to stick to the "position of all churches of the first millennium" about other issues?
