Priest Excommunicated


Well... not for him.

This Catholic priest got excommunicated for ordaining a woman. Although it's sad and he laments being kicked out of his religion, his faith couldn't let him renig on the ordination. That is amazing. THANK YOU Rev. Roy Bourgeois for standing up for women and for the mystery of God. In doing so he lost his right (as a Catholic christian) to not only administer but to receive the sacraments. He lost his job and now won't have health care. His response... doing what is right is the most important - many people don't have health care, now i will be joining them.

Holy cow, Reverend. You're my new hero. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

I was at the protest that is mentioned in the article last weekend and I heard him speak. Mostly he talked about the School of the Americas and our duty to close it but also mentioned this. We gave him a standing ovation.
