Hypothetically, would ordination of women mean the gates of hell had prevailed?
#1
From a theological perspective I mean, not necessarily from an "I've had enough!" perspective. I guess the thought I had about this was that in the case of women priests, you would no longer have any certainty that a mass was valid or that transubstantiation was taking place. Once a female bishop exists to confer apostolic succession the game is up, because you could not reasonably guarantee that a male priest was actually ordained or if a female imposter just put her hands on him. 

I don't think it will happen, by the way. It hasn't so far, and all the leftist popes like JPII and Francis seem opposed to it. But deaconnesses would be a bridge too far for me regardless, at which point I'd throw in the towel. But I hope in my heart it doesn't come to that, and I feel like it won't.
