Always up for some boat-rocking, Pope Francis has appointed a woman as under-secretary to the Synod of Bishops.

This will be the first time a woman will have voting rights within the Synod body.

Synods themselves are fairly new, best known for being nauseating buzzword generators and for not fixing anything. 

This new female under-secretary is Sister Nathalie Becquart, a nun who doesn't like her habit. 

"Ms. Becquart" as she is called by "idiots" who mistake her lack of habit for lack of vocation, has been a consultant for the synod since 2019. 

And as everyone knows, European nuns who've ditched their habits are always friendly toward conservative Catholics. They never lash out against, for example, clerics like Archbishop Viganò for supporting God-fearing world leaders

The Vatican announced the news on February 8 via twitter:

The Synod's secretary-general, Cardinal Mario Grech, said the appointment showed that "a door has opened," and noted that the decision reflects the Pope's desire "for a greater participation of women in the process of discernment and decision-making in the church".

Well, we all like open doors, don't we? Can't wait to see where this one leads! 

Women priests, anyone?
