San Diego Wildcat Catholic Congregation Ordains a Woman

Story here. I have nothing to add to it except to emphasize: we all of us have silly beliefs, whether or not they involve supernatural beings. What we most need to watch out for is people with the will and ability to force those silly beliefs on others through politics. I don't think this independent congregation's beliefs are any more likely to be true than the Vatican-managed main church, but if a competing Catholic congregation weakens the Vatican's ability to influence my own and other governments, then it's for the best.
