Q&A

Did John Paul II’s refusal to ordain women go against his consistent teaching on the dignity of the individual person?

Question:

John Paul II talks a lot about &quot;the dignity of the person&quot; and how wrong it is to deal with people as members of some class (race, culture, gender, age) rather than as individuals. Doesn&#039;t he himself violate this principle with his insistence that women may not be ordained?<br />
