Malachi O'Doherty declares (News, February 26) that the solution to the problems of the Catholic Church is the ordination of women.
Has Mr O'Doherty ever bothered to look at Anglicanism? Most member churches of the Anglican communion in the developed world now ordain women, but their membership has continued to decline regardless.
One wonders if it has ever occurred to Mr O'Doherty that not all problems can be solved by simplistic bien pensant schemes.
