A ordenação das mulheres pertence a esse
tipo de "doutrina"
passível de ser distorcida
Através dos séculos, as
formulações da doutrina cristã foram influenciadas pela
cultura imperante no seu tempo. A mudança de cultura afectou inclusive o
núcleo de algumas doutrinas como as que dizem respeito à

As mulheres foram excluídas do exercício da função sacerdotal com apoio em bases culturais.
As mulheres eram consideradas "belas criaturas", mas totalmente inferiores ao homem.
Esta inferioridade foi confirmada pela crença de que as mulheres não eram seres humanos completos

To cap it all, women were held responsible for causing men to sin.
Eve was blamed for seducing Adam, and all women were deemed to suffer the punishment of Gods curse on Eve, namely that she would always be subject to men.Clicar aqui
It was cultural prejudices that propped up the exclusion of women from the priestly ministry. Church authorities have simply not woken up to this fact.
