Update: To be fair, perhaps we shouldn't be too critical. As this post from a blogger on the Catholic publisher Ignatius Press's blog points out, the two things are not so different, as ordaining women represents a form of "spiritual abuse":
"A key problem here, in a nutshell, is that while everyone with a working conscience knows how horrible and vile are the sexual molestation and abuse of children, not everyone takes nearly as seriously the grave spiritual harm caused by the attempted ordination of women. This is especially true when the "ordination" is done by an actual bishop; it is a betrayal of the most serious sort, a violation of his holy orders and, ultimately, of the sacred calling granted to him by God. It is, put frankly, spiritual abuse."Oh dear.
