These women think they scare the Vatican. They think 'conservative' Catholics are enraged by them and hate them. I don't think that is true. I think most Catholics tuned in to the mind of the Church, if they think about it, simply find these women pitiful. Like so many other Catholic laity today, they suffer a near-fatal lack of proper formation and ignorance. Add to this a hubris-inspiring dose of wounded pride, a sense of victimization, self-righteousness in the form of sublimated resentment, and prudence-paralizing floods of lime-light, cameras, and a sense that the whole anti-patriarchal world is cheering them on from the grand stands, and the jig is up: they're putty in the hands of the Devil's useful idiots. Simply pitiful.
