Liberal priest Roy Bourgeois repaid for longtime pro-feminist efforts with lai-

cization by less than liberal RCC.

Nice try, but there's no room for liberals in the Catholic Church.

1. Roy Bourgeois is not just a liberal priest he is an internationally recognized human rights advocate

He is the founder of School of the Americas Watch and his efforts to shine a light on human rights abuses in Latin America have made him a hero to many people around the world. It says a lot about the Catholic Church that they would excommunicate a truly great person like Bourgeois yet they protected known pedophiles.

Just have to move the reactionaries out of the way.

4. But they're changing the church from within!

At least until they get kicked out, that is.
