Slow down a bit, John. Godparents are chosen to be involved in the life of the baptized to aid the parents, primarily by setting good example in word and deed. Their sexual ID isn't primary in this task. A priest, however, acts in persona Christi which necessarily requires a male. I don't see a direct correlation between the two. In addition, godparents don't necessarily have to be a couple (though couples are the norm to stand in as godparents). Even I as a baby baptized in 1954, was allowed to have only a godmother, Helen Dillon; no godfather.
