Priest Faces Excommunication for Supporting Ordination of Women
American Priest Father Roy Bourgeois who is an outspoken resistor to the School of the Americas renamed to Western Hemisphere Institute for Security Cooperation (accused of human rights violations and for teaching torture techniques to Latin American soldiers), is in hot water with the Catholic Church for supporting the ordination of women to the priesthood. Father Bourgeois has less than 30 days before a decision will be handed down from the Vatican. Father Bourgeois is a courageous man standing up to a dinosauric misogynistic patriarchal closeted institution.
