Like those before him, the new Pope believes one group can arbitrarily take some part of human anatomy or some identifiable characteristic and use it theologically to suppress another group. At least that is what he wrote as an Archbishop.
He wrote only women have the physical ability to bear babies. For some reason this anatomy means, theologically, they are not to be clergy. The anatomy of the other gender, which includes a male reproductive organ, apparently provides the ability to be clergy.
This arbitrary justification for male power means anyone to make up any reason to justify anything. For example, we could have a theology of physical height. Only people over 5 1/2 feet tall could hold positions of authority.
The theology of height (instead of gender) would be those who physically look down on others “by nature” dominate them. The strange thing is many short people would agree it makes sense. Many women agree with the male only clergy rule.
There is a similar arbitrary physical rule in abortion. It used to be argued the “soul” entered at the moment of conception. It is more fashionable now to argue the fertilized egg has “unique DNA”.
The presence of this DNA suddenly gives government, especially men in government, power over the pregnant women. This DNA argument is as arbitrary as rules about male clergy or physical height.
Popes come and go but domination of men over women in some branches of Christianity continues.
