Women's Ordination -- Bishop Andrea M. Johnson

UPDATE--February 10, 2010--Bishop Andrea Johnson is snowbound. Another womanbishop, Bishop Joan Houk will be substituting for her.

Here is a story about the event at the blog of the Nashville Scene...

Bishop Andrea M Johnson will be coming to speak in Nashville on the ordination of women to the priesthood in the Roman Catholic Church.

Bishop Johnson was ordained a womanpriest in 2007 and a womanbishop in 2009.

She will be speaking at Vanderbilt University on Wednesday evening February 10, 2010 at 8:00 PM in the Arts Room of the Divinity School.

This event is being sponsored by Anawim , the Vanderbilt Office of Women’s Concerns, the Vanderbilt Carpenter Program, the Vanderbilt Office of Religious Life, and the Society of St. Cornelius (DIV Catholic student organization).

A Follow-up Disscussion

On Thursday afternoon February 18th. from 4:00 PM until 5:30 PM there will be a follow-up panel discussion on the broader topic of women’s ordination in other denominations. The panel will include Professors Patout Burns (Catholic studies chair), Doug Meeks (Methodist studies chair), Ted Smith (PC-USA clergy and very active in Covenant Network), Eileen Campbell-Reed (her disertation was on the effects of the controversy over women's ordination in the SBC on women seeking ordination; she is also active in progressive Baptist circles on lesbian and gay ordination). Ellen T. Armour who is the E. Rhodes and Leona B. Carpenter Chair in Feminist Theology and Director of the Carpenter Program in Religion, Gender, and Sexuality will be the panel moderator. The location for this discussion will be announced later.


  1. You are a Bishop like Nancy Pelosi Is a Catholic - You are a JOKE - As a former nun, I find this disgusting - You women need to get a life - YOU are NOT in the l ine of Succession - Why not join the pro-choice Epsicopals [- Yor are not ordained to anything - Yu know the rules - I fid it laughable - I am ROTFLMAO ! :)

  2. By the way - in case you don't know - but ROTFLMAO = Rolling on the floor laughing my ass off - Is this a joke? You are committing serious sin by mocking the Catholic Church -

  3. You will NEBER be ordained validly in the one HOLY CATHOLIC APOSTOLIC Church -

    Are you all gay?? Anyone attending your mock services should be automatically excommunicated - along with Nancy Pelosi -

  4. But when it is they who find themselves at odds with the pope, it seems that criticism is not only permitted, but required. Neumayr quotes the great Thomas Aquinas, from “his commentary on the right of subjects to resist flaky superiors”

    You must have received your understanding of the Pope's statements from the NY Times and the liberal Media - NO - the Holy Father DID NOT approve of gays - etc.... this is what you would like to believe - GET A LIFE!
