Fr. Roy faces Vatican ire for standing up for Women
The New York Times reported that Fr. Roy Bourgeois, longtime supporter of the closure of the School of the Americas in Fort Benning, GA, is facing excommunication for participating in the ordination of a Catholic woman to the priesthood. Some of us, of course, have excommunicated ourselves as we realize that we are a priestly people. Indeed, the current Presiding Bishop of the United States, the Most Rev. Dr. Katharine Jefferts Schori is an ex-Catholic, or as we say it, a Roaming Roman.
