Andrew Brown has a short video interview with Oxford history of the church prof Diarmaid MacCulloch here about necessary change in the Catholic Church. It's interesting - he says at one point that "women are a problem" for traditional religion, and it reminded me of a news bit at The Tablet today - Bishops seek greater role for women. It sounds positive, but it's actually about the same "community deaconess" position mentioned earlier at Pray Tell, one in which women will not be ordained as deacons but will apparently just be doing what they already do now as volunteers. Brown discusses the issues brought up in the video in more detail in this post - The new pope's three key challenges
