Jesus does call women into priesthood if there is tolerances in the church to do that, as Jesus will never cross over and dictate these ideas were tolerances of men say different , ...See all man have been given by Heaven of self determination to do their best ...... So if man turns to the legalism of the Word of God than the bible does not hold up women to the degree which people do today in our civilization, ...As sexiest ideas of the past where common place , legalism for the Word of God are held up in some circles , as the authority In Christ is weaker were legalism is strongest....... See Jesus requires tolerances for women priest so He can anoint the women for their victory were peace is not challenged for the compromised of the ministries through Holy Spirit ....... See Jesus in the Gospels had sister relationship with many women who followed Jesus around and took care of His life , were these sister relationship never grew to hot , apart of the colleague sister , which can be an example of relationship Jesus had with women which are rare today in the church, as relationship like Jesus and these woman would be un-considered

The only priesthood there is today is the priesthood of believers so since every Christian is a member of the only priesthood on earth today the answer would be yes.

No. God doesn't call anyone to the priesthood, to be honest....nor does the Bible mention anything of that creature called a "Pastrix", or female pastor.

You know I'd heard of this video on conservative Catholic sources, but to see it. Is this satire? I mean a parody of "Call Me Maybe" to argue for women's ordination? Seriously?

In any event in traditional pre-Reformed Christianity women aren't ordained. Not in Orthodoxy, not in Coptic, not in Assyrian, not in Catholic. There are a variety of reasons for this, but what I recall of ted he's likely not interested in them.

Now Protestantism is different than traditional Christianity and their understanding of clergy is different. Most Protestantism is less sacramental or not sacramental at all. I believe Marriage is not a sacrament in any Protestant denomination. The Eucharist is usually seen differently than in traditional Christianity. (Lutherans and some Anglicans being similar to us though) Women often had no role in Protestant Christianity due to the dissolution of monasticism. So their situation and theology is different. To an extent I almost can see how maybe they needed women clergy as the Reformation swept away too much feminine. Mary, women saints, nuns, etc. The early Reformers were sometimes even pretty hostile to women. But I don't think traditional Christians (because again it's not just Catholics here, no Pre-Reformed faith I know of has women priests. Although some have female deacons) need a Protestant cure to a Protestant disease.

Here is a link to making of the video

I have met several of these ladies at various events, they are very committed.

There are several murals in the catacombs in Rome depicting women celebrating the Eucharist.

And a little more info detailing features of these paintings and what they mean.

Does it matter? Scripture is clear that women are not to be pastors.
