Rev. Anne Robinson, liturgical toucher:
I’ve been in so many places where I’ve been excluded in so many ways because I’m a woman in ministry. It wasn’t a sacrament, and I’m sure Cardinal O’Malley would express the same beliefs as Pope Francis, that they don’t believe the ordination of women is appropriate. He wasn’t saying any of that.
He was saying what the whole service was about, that if you go back to our baptism, we are all Christians. And in that moment with him, we were one.
Despite all the huff and puff, that’s basic Ephesians 4.
