Cincinnati Enquirer polls on women's ordination

Archbishop Daniel Pilarczyk has banned Sister Louise Akers from teaching in the diocese because of her support for the ordination of women in the Catholic Church.  The simple summary of the article is this quote:
"The principle here is that someone who is teaching in the name of the church should be in accord with the teachings of the church," said archdiocese spokesman Dan Andriacco.
What the article doesn't get across clearly enough is that the ordination of women is an impossibility in the Catholic Church; instead, it polls its readership with the question "Should the Church allow women to be ordained as priests?"  Regardless of whether a person thinks the Church should allow women to be ordained, the Church simply cannot.

Please take a minute to take the poll and let Cincinnati know that the Church shouldn't try to do something she can't.
