Why are women still not allowed to preach in the Catholic church?
Cuz a bunch of guys in Rome who wear funny hats say theyre not allowed to. Or something like that.
Interesting question also the women in the Catholic church sit on one side of the church and the men on their side. The tradition is preserved.
I think it's because they are still stuck in the olden days. I have left the Catholic church because of it.
Not sure. There's nothing in the bible about preachers, at least from what I've read. Finding problems within a practice such as this is like trying to find the nonsense in a book called 'Nonsense in the Catholic Church'.
Right off the top of my head I can't think of the chapters and verses. What it comes down to is that the Catholic church still views the role of priest as a man's job. It's along the lines of the husband is to be the leader of his household as Jesus is the leader of the church. Jesus was male and the leader of the disciples. All of the original twelve disciples were men. They in turn taught men to be leaders in the individual church gatherings. As a side note, I believe this all to be a held over tradition from Judaism - which is the original religion followed by the disciples and some continued to follow many of the Jewish traditions, celebrations, and rituals.
Your question could also be asked to some of the other Christian denominations because there are others which also do not allow women to be preachers, elders, deacons, etc. In my opinion, as long as the person, male or female, knows the Bible, teaches what it teaches, and lives their lives by what they teach, they should be recognized and ordained as a priest or pastor.
Because the Catholic Church as a whole is still extremely misogynistic and sees women as lesser beings than men.

Do you think women should be allowed or are fit to become preachers/ministers?This has been a sore subject in my family.(I think they should). Some people believe that women do not have a place in religion as a minister or preacher. In the Holy Bible, it talks about women being seen and not heard...
