Michele Bachmann: God Says Women Are To Submit to Men | Rev Roy Bourgeois Dismissed Over Women Priests
Boys Club | RedTracker
As anticipated and reported recently, the Rev Roy Bourgeois, who has refused to renounce his very public campaign to ordain Catholic women as priests, has been notified of his dismissal from the Maryknoll Fathers and Brothers. The reason given is his ‘defiant stance’ in opposition to church teaching.
The group Roman Catholic Womenpriests has ordained 120 women as priests and 10 as bishops in the last few years.
“They want two words: I recant,” Father Bourgeois said. “And they can’t get that out of me. For me, the real scandal is the message we are sending to women: you’re not equal, you cannot be priests, you’re not worthy.”
The case now moves to the Vatican for his expected formal removal from the priesthood. See also Bridget Mary’s Blog for frequently updated info about movement for Roman Catholic women priests and also Association of Roman Catholic Women Priests.
