  • Archbishop Burke declares St. Louis women priests excommunicated

    ST. LOUIS --

    Two St. Louis women who were ordained as priests in an organization called Roman Catholic Womenpriests are now declared excommunicated by Archbishop Raymond Burke.


    Rose Marie Hudson and Elsie Hainz McGrath were ordained in November, though the process is not recognized by the church, which does not ordain women as priests.

    A "Declaration of Excommunication" letter was delivered to the women Wednesday night. Burke also declared the woman who led Hudson's and McGrath's ordinations excommunicated. She is Patricia Fresen, who is now a Roman Catholic Womenpriests bishop living in Germany.

    Hudson and McGrath say in a statement that they reject the penalties of excommunication and any other punitive actions from church officials.

            He does realize that they do not give two shits about this, right?

            Not saying that he is wrong about this, what they did was/is in direct violation of Catholic teaching, but i think they knew this and had already rejected it. I don't think they thought they were really part of the RC. Just sayin'

                      Actually yes. I myself would consider myself to be a pretty conservative Catholic, but personally I think he'd be better off if he didn't make some of the statements he has made. Truthfully, I'd say that I agree with him on probably most of the general opinions he holds, but disagree with him on probably most of the avenues he uses to express such opinions.

                      But yes, I do have friends and family that think very highly of him. Actually, when I was at SLU, a friend of mine down the hall from me and his roommate had the Archbishop over for dinner one night. Apparently the roommate served Mass at the Cathedral a lot and had spoken with Burke on a number of occasions. Anyway, that could've been some funny stuff had I wanted to make a scene.

                        This whole 'women as second class citizens' is reason 4,231 why you couldn't pay me enough to be Catholic.

                          wham bam excommunicate these women, but that pedophile priest that was exposing himself here in St Louis, he wouldn't excommunicate that guy?

                          Yes it is church business, he can excommunicate whoever the F he wants, but I will say this, it really shows his fucking priorities. What is more important, which must be dealt with the absolute most harshly.

                            At the risk of ticking off the conservative Catholics on this forum, Mr Burke lost me when he tried to extort St. Stanislaus' money. That's the same archdioceses that more or less told St. Stans to go screw themselves when they were in need of funding.

                            OK, so I'm not Catholic and I should be quiet. But I know an older couple in Spanish Lake who're faithful members of that church. I still try to go by and chat with them at least once a month.
