If Only He Had Lived a Full Life, Just Think of All the Good He Could've Done

(Hat tip: The Cranky Conservative)

Rich Leonardi links to what must surely be regarded as the quote of the day:
“Jesus chose the apostles, he chose men not women.” As a believer in Jesus Christ, I choose to believe that had he more time, Jesus would have eventually seen the light and taken full advantage of the brillance, endurance and patience of women, thus entrusting them as apostles (”Women of faith: no stifling debate“). I have faith he would ensure equality. Jesus Christ who believes in all of us (regardless of religion) provides through faith, hope for change. The truths of our faith are simply that…rules are instituted by the church, they can change.
The Cranky Conservative puts it best:
That’s a lot of stupid in just one paragraph ...
But Fr. Schnippel sums up the theology nicely:
Looks like a winner in the 'How many heresies can you fit into five lines?' contest!

UPDATE (22 September)
Additional comments from me can be read at Rich's and Paul's blogs.

God could have created Eve first, then took Adam from her heel, but He didn't. God could have chosen a matrichal society in Polynesia for His plan of salvation, but he picked the patriachal Semites instead. God could have incarnated into a daughter, but he chose to have XY chromosomes. Jesus could have all his disciples - women included during the Last Supper as he easily changed traditions, but He kept that ritual as restricted to males. God's actions are even more meaningful than His words.
