Re AW's claim that women cannot be priests because they cannot "stand in" for Jesus.

If God is omnipotent and omniscient, then he cannot have a gender as that would mean he was incapable of knowing what it is like to be female and incapable of BEING female - therefore, not all-knowing or all-powerful. Therefore, if Jesus did have a gender, he could not be God, as Christians claim ... unless he was hermaphrodite, in which case both men and women, or neither, could play his role!!
