As the Cardinals of the Roman Catholic Church meet to decide on a new Pope, the world watches for smoke signals from the Vatican to indicate that they have made their decision. So the Women’s Ordination Conference smokejacked the Papal Conclave yesterday with pink smoke to protest the church’s refusal to accept women as priests.
