As most of you are aware, we had a crash to forums and were down for over two days a while back. We did have to do an upgrade to the vbulletin software to fix the forums and that has created changes, VB no longer provide the hybrid or threaded forums. There are some issues/changes to the forums we are not able to fix or change. Also note the link address change, please let friends and posters know of the changed link to the forums. For now this is the only link available, https://forums.carm.org/vb5/ but if clicking on forum on carm.org homepage it will now send you to this link. (edited to add https: now working.

Again, we are working through some of the posting and viewing issues to learn how to post with the changes, you will have to check and test the different features, icons that have changed. You may also want to go to profile settings,since many of the notifications, information in profile, also to update/edit your avatar by clicking on avatar space, pull down arrow next to login for user settings.

Edit to add "How to read forums, to make it easier."
Pull down arrow next to login name upper right select profile, or user settings when page opens to profile,select link in tab that says Account. Then select/choose options, go down to Conversation Detail Options, Select Display mode Posts, NOT Activity, that selection of Posts will make the pages of discussions go to last post on last page rather than out of order that happens if you choose activity threads. Then be sure to go to bottom and select SAVE Changes in your profile options. You can then follow discussions by going through the pages, to the last page having latest responses. Then click on the other links Privacy, Notifications, to select viewing options,the forums get easier if you open all the tabs or links in your profile, user settings and select options. To join Super Member, pull down arrow next to login name, select User Settings and then click on tab/link at top that says Subscriptions.

Thank you for your patience and God Bless.

        Naah, the pope would never agree with the methodists in most things. Important things like gay marriage, gay pastors, women pastors. Even the rcc wouldn't go that far from the Bible.
        God's Word (Scripture) will convince me. YOUR argument is your own.

          The RCC did a study on women's ordination back in the 1980s and concluded that nothing in scripture precluded women from being ordained. They did say that the tradition of the RCC would prevent women from being ordained.

          And Pope Francis has said that he would encourage the creation of women deacons as a first step in the right direction.

            Actually, Pope John Paul II authoritatively stated that women cannot be ordained as priests within the Catholic Church. Pope Francis recently confirmed that decision. There has been some discussion of ordination of woman deacons, but that has currently not gone anywhere. More importantly, the Catholic Church's understanding of woman deacons (there have been woman deacons in the past within the Church) is that ordination for such deacons was not the same as ordination of male deacons.

              John Wesley is the obvious answer, but there are probably more.

                On the question of whether the Pope would agree with the Methodists on something, he does agree that women can be ordained, just not in the Roman Catholic Church. There is no biblical reason for women not to be ordained, on that he can agree.

                  To the contrary, based on both Scripture and Tradition, it is definitive Catholic teaching that women cannot be ordained to the priesthood. As stated in the Catechism of the Catholic Church,

                  1577 "Only a baptized man (vir) validly receives sacred ordination."66 The Lord Jesus chose men (viri) to form the college of the twelve apostles, and the apostles did the same when they chose collaborators to succeed them in their ministry.67 The college of bishops, with whom the priests are united in the priesthood, makes the college of the twelve an ever-present and ever-active reality until Christ's return. The Church recognizes herself to be bound by this choice made by the Lord himself. For this reason the ordination of women is not possible.68

                  66 CIC, can. 1024.
                  67 Cf. Mk 3:14-19; Lk 6:12-16; 1 Tim 3:1-13; 2 Tim 1:6; Titus 1:5-9; St. Clement of Rome, Ad Cor. 42,4; 44,3:PG 1,292-293; 300.
                  68 Cf. John Paul II, MD 26-27; CDF, declaration, Inter insigniores: AAS 69 (1977) 98-116.

                  Whether the Methodists or any other non-Catholic body wishes to ordain women as pastors within their community is up to them. Any such ordination in those communities would not be an ordination as the Catholic Church understands the Sacrament of Holy Orders (which, of course, is true with respect to even the men).
