Ugh. Man removed from priesthood for celebrating Mass with a woman. God bless him for standing up for what's right. http://t.co/zaqWPMn2
ordaining a woman priest is just as grave a sin as a priest molesting children. THIS is why I don't go to church http://t.co/35ZWt81k
Elderly priest stripped of duties after holding Mass with woman priest12/9/2012
Disapproving tweets are flying at the Catholic Church today over an elderly priest who can no longer wear his beloved robe and collar because he celebrated Mass with — gasp — a woman. The Archdiocese of Milwaukee has stripped 92-year-old Rev. Father Bill Brennan of his priestly duties for performing a liturgy at an annual protest in Georgia where Rev. Janice Sevre-Duszynska was a participant. (The Catholic Church prohibits women from being ordained, noting Jesus chose only men as his apostles.) Although friends have objected, Brennan says he understood the risks when he performed the liturgy. "Sometimes in our lives we have to trust our conscience and bring about the consequences," Brennan said. [Source]
