Brother Fred Muller on the Status of Women in the Church
Our group conducted an interview with Fred Muller, a LaSallian brother. We had a great conversation about the role of women in the bible. He has an interesting take on the ordination of women in the Catholic Church. He believes that women should not be ordained because he says that people are equal in the sense of "equity". He say "equity" and "equality" are two different things. He says "equity", in regard to the ordination of women, in his opinion, means that men and women have different strengths and weaknesses thusly making them equal. The differences in "equity" are not because of equality but because of circumstance. He believes that women do not have to be ordained to have a strong role and contribution to the Catholic church. He believes that by not being in the clergy, women can have an even stronger voice and continue the great work that they have already done.
