I have met, read and listened to eminent theologians such as Fr. Charles Curran and Sr. Elizabeth Johnson, who have been investigated concerning the orthodoxy of their writing. I simply don’t understand the arrogance of the Church in their lack of dialogue or Christian treatment of these two. I have mentioned just these two theologians, but the list unfortunately is long and distinguished.
Fr. Roy Bourgeois, the founder of the School of the Americas Watch, comes to mind for his standing up for the ordination of women and the Roman Catholic Womenpriest movement. His punishment for speaking out publicly has been to be told he must recant or he would be banished from his order and the priesthood. – HB
