For those o' you whose celebrants wimp out on Sunday's Second Reading...

Here's what you missed. Here's the complete reading.

Be subordinate to one another out of reverence for Christ.
Wives should be subordinate to their husbands as to the Lord.
For the husband is head of his wife
just as Christ is head of the church,
he himself the savior of the body.
As the church is subordinate to Christ,
so wives should be subordinate to their husbands in everything.

My question: why are girly-girl priests and feminists so eager to keep the wives out of the action when they choose the "shorter" version (which is actually four short lines less)?
