Of Mothers and Fathers
As Jews trace themselves through mothers, so Catholics trace ourselves through Fathers in God, i.e., bishops. If the Supreme Court can decide who is nor is not a Jewish mother whose children are therefore entitled to be admitted to oversubscribed Jewish schools, so it can also decide who is or is not an episkopos, as all Protestant presbyteroi claim to be, entitling his or her spiritual children to be admitted to oversubscribed Catholic schools. Watch that space.
