America Magazine's Campaign to Save Altar Girls

I'm not linking to the article. If you want to find it, google it, but be warned: reading it will cause loss of brain cells.

Case in point--this is one of the most doltish things I've ever read:
These moves to limit laywomen’s access to the altar threaten to drag the church back into the pre-Vatican II world. [And what's so wrong with that, praytell? -ed.] One wonders if next the altar rail will return, another barrier between the priests and the people.
