    I suppose, though it strikes me as being much more likely that it was simply prejudices back in those times that were written into Biblical scriptures.

    The practical point here is that the "club" has set its own rules. Don't want to join? Don't. Reject the rules? Fine. But don't expect to keep your job as an "officer" if you publicly and obstinately rail against the rules and persistently disobey them.

    Well, when you have a religion that dictates what you have to believe in and that belief involves sexism or hatred, then you to are labeled that.

    Has nothing to do with hate or sexism. It has to do with biblical tradition as laid down by those who started and to this day maintain the church. If you don't agree, that's fine. Your bigoted views on this particular incident is no reason for the hate you yourself seem to be spewing.

    I don't see the problem here. A priest disobeys the rules set by his superiors, and they remove him from his position for said disobedience. Nobody twisted his arm to become a priest, he volunteered for it. He should have done the honorable thing and left the church voluntarily to pursue a position more appropriate to his shift in religious ideology.

    While the Church was busy covering up and hiding members of the Catholic clergy who were responsible for rape and sexual abuse, thus ensuring ensured continued immeasurable mental, emotional and psychological trauma to others, Father Roy was out doing what the Catholic Church should represent.

    So yes, the Vatican has officially dismissed Father Roy from the priesthood and from his religious order because of his stand on gender equality. For years he has been consistent in following one single path, that of defending the rights of others, even when this placed his own life and well being in jeopardy. He has never strayed from this path.

    This man founded SOA Watch, was a Nobel Prize-nominated Vietnam veteran and a human rights activist. He was and is so much more than just a Catholic Priest. You know, that's not a bad Legacy to leave behind.

    Maybe it's a great legacy to leave behind. But he has left the priesthood because he could not follow the vow of obedience he took, which made him a very bad priest. No kudos for disobedience and for defiantly and publicly opposing the teachings of his church.

    I think women should be allowed to be priests. They were in the old Church prior to the 4th century. Also, in the 60's and 70's there were alot of guys like this one and over time they got kicked out or recanted.

    but many kudos are extended for his willingness to follow his heart and head in matters of faith
