Does the Vatican have a chess club?

Now that the Cardinals have elected a new Pope it seems relatively safe to dive back into topics of Church and Chess. No, this is not another one of those "The Pope is a chess player" posts. Instead, I'm venturing into yet another incendiary religious debate which I'm wholly unqualified to participate in.

Rebecca Hartong argues that an all-male Catholic priesthood is no big deal:

If you want a religion that's pretty much like Catholicism but with women as priests become a Lutheran or an Episcopalian. Insisting that the Roman Catholic church ordain women is joining the club and then insisting that everyone should play parcheesi.
