Bourgeois out of Maryknoll?

If you have read the recent NCR, you learned faster than most Maryknollers that Fr. Roy Bourgeois's membership in Maryknoll will come to an official and inglorious end in the coming days.

Almost two years after Roy's excommunication, Fr. Ed Dougherty could no longer maintain the untenable situation of extending Roy the benefits of full membership in the Society while he not only remained excommunicated, but he did not curtail his public advocacy of women's ordination.

Thus ends a sad chapter. But my guess is not the final one.

I shall linger around the salad bar and forward whatever the buzz is anon.
