Rome - The Pope has said women priests should not be marginalized but integrated into society and stuff.
During a media address on the return flight from Rio Pope Frankie-the-Argie reaffirmed the Vatican position on women as one small crotch - er...notch! - down from homosexual clergy.
"Yeah, it's the tampons that's freaking out the Bishops," the Holy Farter commented, "and bikini waxes called 'Brazilians'."
Turning to the role of women in the secular world the Pontiff said he would have 'absolutely no problem' with, say, a woman bank manager.
"But hell will freeze over before a woman takes over as CEO of the Vatican Bank," Frankie-the-Argie added.
"Besides, that position has already been earmarked for former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn," the Pope continued, "as soon as French Prosecutors release him from that pimping and whore-running rap."
The next Pope to follow Pope Francis is likely to be a woman - the head of Interpol's Fraud Squad.
