    This is turning out to be a rather memorable Conclave, and the Cardinals haven't even convened yet.

    It's funny how the author points out MALE priests in the first paragraph. Are they any other varieties?

    ^

    In at least one branch of the catholic church, there can be female priests. (episcopal).

    The whole thing is just a mess, and I hope the faithful see the fallibility of those whom they give so much respect and authority to... for no reason.

    The Episcopal and/or Anglican churches have branches with the word "Catholic" in their name, but they are not Roman Catholic. They are Protestant and have no connection to Rome.
