"In 2002, seven women were secretly ordained as priests by two Roman Catholic bishops in Germany. After their ordination, a kind of domino effect ensued..."

I don't understand who is doing the subsequent ordinations. Even if the initial seven women were ordained as Priests, how could they in turn ordain others without being Bishops?

It's funny, I was at a public meeting regarding natural gas 'fracking' (hydraulic fracturing of shale, a hot political issue in the NE USA these days...) the other night with my wife and I noticed that most of the opponents apparently had also attended the first Woodstock festival in 1969 and were still mourning the passing of Jerry Garcia.......

According to RC Canon Law excommunication is automatic for anyone involved in such things. No official pronouncement necessary.

If that were true, there would be no such thing as an excommunicated Catholic.  Goes for the Ultramontanists too, perhaps more so.

This is true.  No longer is there aneed for a special announcement or ceremony proclaiming someone excommunicated.  By their very act of disobedience they have cut themselves (excommunicated) from the church.

This makes me so glad I'm Orthodox. 

I think it's absolutly rediculous that they aren't called "deaconesses" and "priestesses" like in Anglicanism.  This reminds me of women leading neo-pagan covens.

There's nothing sacramentally Christian in the Neo-Pagan rites, so, ironically, the Neo-Pagan priestesses are much less objectionable, theologically, than the "Catholic" priestesses.

Yeah, it is.  Catholic is "according to the whole." If you are no longer part of the whole, you are no longer Catholic.

Excommunication has never severed one from the Church, in either the East or the West, and I've not heard of the Catholic Church pronouncing anathema in quite some time.

You being a German speaker might be schocked at the nonsense that gets pulled in this manner in German.

Die Queer-Theorie kritisiert grundsätzlich die Postulierung bzw. Bestätigung der absoluten Zweigeschlechtlichkeit durch das Binnen-I. Als Ausweg wird der Gender Gap („Schüler_innen“), gesehen, welcher aber auch mit dem Binnen-I verbunden werden kann („Schüler_Innen“).

I know these people exist, but the attention given them is disproportionate to their actual numbers, and anyway alleged "Old Catholic" sects have been doing this for years. These ladies have only taken it one step further by claiming that they are still in communion with Rome regardless of what Rome says.
